iv recently rooted my phone and installed rom manager as well as titanium backup. I backed up my phone through titanium backup then downloaded cyanogenmod and installed it through rom manager. i cleared my cashe and backed up in rom manager. my phone now just boots up to the droid screen then resets. its like a endless cycle lol. is there any way to get my phone back in working order or is it bricked?
my phone was running really slow. it lost that new phone feel. so i decided that i was going to wipe the phone and start fresh. once, i decided to do that, i then figured why the hell not and rooted the phone.
when i wiped/reset my phone i expected that everything would be gone. i did this by holding "x" and power and then chose to wipe from there. i also chose to wipe the cache partition too. well after i rebooted, i noticed my custom wallpaper and a bunch of applications were still installed on my phone??? the reason i wanted to do this was to get rid of everything and start fresh...but all these apps were still there. did i not wipe the phone correctly?
- next i installed sprecovery on my phone. that went fine. - i then wiped it again and installed JRummys cyanogen remix 188.8.131.52. - Right off the bat, my phone is running slower than ever. When exiting from an app by hitting the home screen, sometime i just get a blank screen that sits there for a few seconds before my icons pop up. what gives?.............
I've changed my Moto Droid to the Droid Incredible, I will miss and keep Moto Droid in my heart. (It also made me realize iPhone was just a platonic relationship). I'm selling it off to offset cost. It's already deactivated, I've been trying to use the Rom Manager to download a stock image but it keeps failing, apparently it doesn't want to use Wifi (tried in airplane mode too). Even then the version it downloads is rooted. I'd like to reset/wipe the phone down to 2.1 or 2.0.1 and a way to make sure OTA will work when it gets activated. How can I do this?
I am doing a factory reset 2 which deletes everything including the SD card. My question is which information is in the google cloud and what do I need to save and the best way to do that? I basically only want to keep all my contacts and photos.
I noticed that facebook notifications don't work at all anymore. But since the most recent update my phone has rebooted at least 2 times a day. Most recently during a phone call? I got this phone as a refurb from Verizon after the OTA bricked my last one. Does this warrant a replacement or is it a software bug I have to track down? I honestly don't want to go through the exchange process again.
My friend and I are just having to many issues with NexFro 1.0.1 on the 2.2 OS crashing and other misc. stuff but we love the interface so we want to go back to NextBeast 1.1 on the 2.1 OS. What is the easiest and safest way to get back to the 2.1 OS? Also I am questioning the method my friend rooted his phone, even though it responds as rooted it seems to act even flakier than mine under the Nexfro ROM. What would be the best method in restoring his droid back to stock OS and starting over?
I noticed that most of the "How To Root" on this forum have broken links to the files, does anyone have a link for a good set of instructions with working links they can forward me? One last question is what exactly is Peter's Baseband thing do? I have been reading about it but it isn't sinking in my head as to what exactly it does.
I rooted my Droid today for the first time.The first time it turned on after installing the new ROM it kept resetting after the MOTO icon would come up.It was doing this for quite a while and I kept removing the battery and powering off and on and then finally it started up.Phone was running great after that and was OCing at 800.Used it for about 5 hours like this.Then I went to set up OC profiles and hit refresh and now the phone keeps resetting at Moto icon again and hasn't turned back on.Is there something I can do to fix this?
Whenever I use Skype Mobile it seems to reset my Home button (as if I had gone to the application manager and reset to defaults) so I have to keep selecting Helix Launcher every single time after using Skype.
Obviously I check the "Use by default for this action" box each time.
Only Skype Mobile seems to do this. I have also tried powering off and back on.
This started this morning. My phone randomly started resetting. At first I thought this was an issue with it coincidently soft rebooting while in my pants pocket. However I've had it sitting on my desk and it's randomly reset twice now with in a span of about 2o minutes.
I've been having for the past couple of days issues with my phone resetting itself. I have a rooted Dinc with the Hydra OV 1.15ghz kernel install. I was wondering if anybody else was having the same or a similar issue? Maybe it's with the kernel or maybe it's with a program I have installed but I'd like to try and narrow it down before I do anything.
Fascinate is factory resetting itself at random times, seems to be occurring only when corporate outlook account is added to the phone. started happening last night, the phone reboot itself and reformatted the drives, so upon reboot everything was erased. I re setup the phone and it did it again like an hour later. I re setup the phone a second time, only I did not add the work outlook email and it went all day long today without resetting. I'm worried if I add the work email account the phone will reset again. BTW the work email account was on the phone before with zero issues.
Quick setup: Was running Fresh 2.3.3, wiped and flashed Cynogen 6.0 froyo Was having problem with texting.. (see my other thread) Went back to Fresh 2.3.3 I am now trying Cynogens again... Wiped everything, re-flashed.
Weirdness is now happening. Many of the apps that I previously downloaded are now on the Cynogen rom (and shouldn't be). I go into Market and it shows that I am downloading things and when I cancel it FC's the Market. How do I completely erase everything and start over?
I may need to reset my phone, but have paid for a few apps, obviously they will disappear, would I need to rebuy the same apps? or is it somehow logged that I have already bought them, thus wont need to buy again?
So I've been doing some thing to save battery life, one of which is to turn the brightness all of the way down. However, it seems like it won't stay all of the way down. I haven't confirmed this but it appears to turn itself back up after being plugged in to a charger. Any ideas?
So I have an galaxy s vibrant. Now its rooted and has a jelly bean custom rom. Now I'm getting a new phone and I want to factory reset my phone, meaning i want all my apps, contact infomation and anything stored in my phone storage to be wiped but I want to keep the custom rom (Jelly bean ) and root permissions still. Is this possible? What would happen if i just factory reset my phone ,deleting everything on my phone , and wanted it like i got it out of the box?
My Desire V started reseting itself for no apparent reason that I can think of. Uninstalled the few apps I installed for the last few weeks. The crash logs show this in the bottom (and other I/O Errors all over the log file as well):

Edit: I've managed to fix this without resetting the phone, but you need root: Issue 3477 - android - HTC Hero - can't sign Gmail account if user skips signing when initially using the phone. - Project Hosting on Google Code comment 16

running 2.1 sense ui default setup. Rooted via unrevok3d method. If i perform a factory reset of the phone as per the manual would instruct, will that change the clockwork recovery i have, or just reset the os. Basically, can i reset the phone but keep the clockwork recovery? If i want stock recovery i have to reset using ruu and reflash the whole thing right?
When I bought my G1 the guy in the shop used his own gmail account to demonstrate and forgot to reset the phone. I got home transfered all my contacts into the G1 from my old mobile which then died. I only have my contacts on the G1 now and no other back up copy. My problem is that the shopguy's gmail is still the default account and I need to do a factory reset. I am unable to synch my contacts with my own gmail account. I am unable to download apps from the market as I dont know the shopguy's password. I am therefore unable to back up my contacts before I reset the phone.
I have been looking for ways to back up my contacts to my PC so that I can reset the phone and then export them back and synch them with gmail via the G1. It seems impossible to do using the USB cable? It is also not possible to save the contacts to SIM or the memory card? I have looked into using sites like zyb or vodafone 360 for backing up my contacts online but they dont seem to work with the G1?
I havent received ANY texts for the past two days. I've uninstalled the latest apps I've installed (Task Killer & Texas Hold Em). I didnt have many installed to begin with and still had 86mb free before uninstalling them. i've restarted and pulled the battery over and over. still nothing. my phone is rooted with Fresh 1.1 and I have the Gumbo kernel. NOW... i'm thinking about trying a hard reset to try and fix this SMS issue. can i backup my phone to where i dont have to do the manual rooting all over again? that kitchen didnt work for me and i really dont feel like running thru all that code again. what all does a backup actually back up?
I am a huge Android Forums newbie, but I really needed help with backing up my phone information before hard resetting. Basically, the primary email that the phone is running under is an email for a company I no longer work for so I don't have a valid email there. Because I can't log into my work email, I can't log in and download any new application so unless you guys know of a different solution, I guess my only option is to hard reset and then make a new primary account. However, I would like to save all my contacts and texts messages [if possible, although I hear it's unlikely], but since I can't download any new applications, I also can't download any storage applications for my phone.
I have created a new google account that i would like to replace the original one.I have synced the new account but cant seem to remove the original. I get the following message, This account is required by some applications. You can only remove it by resetting the phone to factory defaults. You do that in settings, under privacy. Is there anyway to do it without resetting the phone? I dont want to reset it as i the phone is rooted, has custom ROM with over 100 apps.
I was having trouble seeing all my saved mail on my AOL email setup through the Mail App. I tried deleting my AOL Email address so I could reinstall it. I started the process to delete it but it lock up during the process. The phone wouldn't respond to anything so I had to turn it off. When I turned it back on the Mail App shows I have emails but when I tap on it, it comes up to a screen that says choose a mail provider. Choices are Exchange Activesync or Other (POP3/IMAP). I choose Other (POP/IMAP), entered email address & password. It came up to a warning screen (an account with the email address already exists. It doesn't allow me to complete the setup. It seems it deleted part of the email address setup but it still remembers the old setup. Is there anyway to totally delete this email address to start all over without resetting the phone?
