    Can I get a bit of advice?

    I was trying to flash to cyanogenmod 7 and it was a little more complicated than I initially thought. I got this little bugger pop up:

    How is it looping? Is it stuck at the Samsung logo, or does it display 3 icons (phone, pc, and an exclamation point)?

    It actually gets as far in as the home screen. But after about 10-20 seconds it shuts down and starts the process again.

    That is unusual. Normally when a samsung phone loops, it's one of the two I mentioned above. What procedure did you do when trying to flash CM7? Was it the correct version for your device and did the md5 match? If not, it might have been a corrupted download. Redownloading it might be all that you need to do.

    It was the correct one. Funny thing though - I re-tried and it worked. Didn't change a thing, but it worked. *shrug* I'm not gonna question it. :)

    Cheers!

    It's funny how that happens sometimes, wouldn't be the first time I've seen it, and it's even happened once for me.
