    As title implies, this is my 2nd droid here. The first one went fine - Ran the app, unzipped after recovery, downloaded image. Now its booting up - stuck at...

    "Welcome to SP Recovery...yadayada

    Backing up before installing...
    Attempting Nandroid backup."

    Stays here. Cannot get into recovery mode. Please help.

    I do have an Mini SD card reader - and when I browse into it. I see 2 nandroid backups, I'm walking through this ADB stuff and I'm still a bit confused. I just want my darn phone to work now :(

    Please help?

    Had the same problem but no Micro SD card reader. I was able to get back into my phone by removing the SD card, powering up without the card. Then I was given the option to reboot, did (inserted the card again before powered up), and all is well. I was then able to use my file manager to delete the nandroid backup files. Damn, what a morning!!!!

    Just another reason to manually root, or atleast use droidrootpro/helper instead.

    Actually this time it was during manual operations (I posted here because of the similar nandroid problem). Was playing with some Metamorph stuff and a related update.zip when all hell broke lose. No matter how hard I go out of my way to brick this phone there always seems to me another life. This is one resilient piece of equipment. As they say, live and learn.
