Quick question....flashed my phone with this ROM, worked like a champ.

After a few days, flashed my wife's phone with this ROM, stuck at white HTC screen with 1 vibrate, no change in screen, no light.

I'm re-downloading the ROM, but the phone has been sitting here at 3+ minutes (I don't remember my phone taking that long).

Any tips? Yes, I wiped data, cache and dalvik before the ROM load.

I can get back into recovery at this point (ROM manager 3.0 from her old ROM). If I posted this in the wrong place, I do sincerely apologize.

Did you format /system? Other than that, I'd say possible bad download.

formatting system didn't seem to work, but I'm going to install 3.6 and upgrade to 3.7 like I did on my phone, since that seemed to work pretty much flawlessly for me.

Still 1 vibrate on white HTC screen, never gets past that screen.

It probably does the same things you have already tried, but maybe try using the Super Wipe zip found (1st or 2nd post I think) in the Android Revolution thread. Has to be flashed in recovery. It fixed some issues with recovery I was having. Not the same problem as you, but it might help.

Galaen - I'll have to try that one.

Let me say that, despite the fact that the phone issue wasn't completely resolved, these guys are amazing.

special thanks to flapp - staying up way late with me was pretty kick-ass and much appreciated.

So here's where we are:

The phone will not load a new rom copied from PC to SD card, or from pc to phone via adb push...but it will load a new recovery image (4ext was loaded during the testing of this) from the sdcard. It will restore a nandroid backup from the sd card, and that backup works (although it is old). Phone, text, market, apps - all working.

But when you load a new ROM.....nothing. White screen, 1 vibrate (I noticed that her current rom does vibrate once on the white screen, so it might be a system thing, or nothing at all). It's like it isn't writing something correctly during ROM flashes...which makes no sense because I tried both 3.6 and 3.7, both versions that I installed on my inspire with matching hardware (same brand sdcard, same phone, etc). The only difference in the phones is that I have put mine through WAY more physical and electrical hell than hers has been through.

At any rate, the only thing I have left to try is to load a ROM from the sdcard that was downloaded to the phone via the internal browser...it's the only option i can think of now. It's beginning to look like something beyond the scope of a ROM issue.

That is something I didn't have you do. Try that and report back

ro.ril.disable.power.collapse

I am testing based on Lord Clockans feedback that setting that value to 0 in the building.prop saves battery.

No dice. I'm wondering if there are some tools that can be run through either adb or terminal or something to verify hardware issues. I did not run the tool mentioned by Galaen, it was too late for me to fool with it. maybe after I'm in the office with copious amounts of coffee.....

Actually, I'm pretty sure that there is something that can at least give me an abstract view of what I'm looking for in the Android sdk...looks like I have some hardware verification to do today.

Honestly, i would flash back to a stock rom. There is a gb stock that is rooted. This would most definitely help rule out any hardware issues.

Agreed, and a battery pull could help also. then going right into a super wipe/then flash of stock rom....

good luck Sir.....g
