    Title says it all. was messing around with pimp my rom and restarted. Not able to boot up anymore.

    i have adb set up, but not able to push/install stock system.img, boot.img, or recovery.img

    all are on the SD card root folder. i was rooted but wiped data/cache in hopes of factory reset? that did't work. so now im at my wits end. i already called VM and my phone is in backorder i.e not avail. so now im waiting for my replacement phone to become avail. but would try n see if anyone can lend a hand and in return paypal you some thank you moneys :D.

    ran n MD5 shows my build.prop is not coming up the same so i think thats the root of my problem.

    I have skype, mumble server, team viewer.

    Now that you guys have cwm recovery working, try the following.

    1. Download cwm recovery to your pc
    2. Open terminal and cd to cwm directory
    3. Type the following in the terminal and press enter after each line
    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    2. fastboot boot quantum_cwm.img
    Now you should be able to flash your system.img with cwm booted on your device.

    "Recovery.img" is not equal to "recovery.img"
    case sensitivity, this isnt windows its linux so if you capitalize the wrong thing youll screw yourself

    this on the other hand, is clearly a windows error...

    adb shell, didnt take you into the android shell as it should have, something is wrong with either your driver, your adb program, or youre in the wrong mode and your phone isnt giving off an adb signal

    either that or you exited it or forgot to enter it... but regardless, adb shell isnt engaged
