Im not mocking anyone specific here or trying to make light of anyone's situation if they are presently borked. I can empathize with the plight as I did the whole soft brick thing going from voodoo v.1 to v.2 myself. But here's the pattern we all seem to follow: 1]Get SF 2]Excited to have it as stock 3]Realize the hacker/tweaker inside us knows theres more performance/customization to be had 4]Root and hack away 5]Improvement /Enhancements work - Happy Camper 6]Something new comes out but requires a theoretically simple but in reality slightly complex process [voodoo disabling, ROM, bootanimation changes, etc.] 7]Something goes wrong - Boom; borked it somehow 8]Frantic postings here and at xda *8a]PMing known perceived experts - been the sender and receiver on this one 9]Odin restore et al *9a]Odin process does not work repeat steps 8 and 8a 10]Finally success, phone back to stock and operation 11]Declaration that Im just going to leave well enough alone and ride stock.... for the moment 12]repeat process from step 3 We all do it; we all want more. I do acknowledge that some people can just root and leave it at that. But anyone who put on voodoo even once or flashed an OC kernel ever is in this above repeating cycle. Its like Lays potato chips no one can do it just once. Seriously no one reading this flashed just one Kernel. You're either at zero or likely 5+ [Im at 20+ if you count re-flashing the same kernel again after trying a different one and going make to a previous one] Its a bothersome time for sure to be borked but somehow almost every once of us makes it out there OK and actually wiser and more knowledgeable of our SF's. So here's our thread. I considered putting this in either the Support sub-forum or the main one put I think it fits here best [Frisco or D13 can and will move if necessary].
