Maybe as more roms start coming out this will be addressed.

Btw. I left my prime bricked for two days before I had a chance to fix it (swamped at work). She was on my mind both days lol

So even though the battery died while it was bricked, it still charged?? As far as why you can't do a factory reset when unlocked, maybe a factory reset contains the same files as a factory update?

You may be on to something. I root and hack every android device I've ever owned (to embarrassed to say how many) and I didn't feel the need to unlock or root my prime but being the flash junkie that I am I had to do it. Now I'm afraid to lock it up with a borked rom or something weird. I didn't have any of the problems people were having with their primes before I unlock and rooted it (wished I hadn't now).

And the battery was completely dead but luckily I was able to get enough of a charge to use the adb fix and flash the stock rooted rom.

Hopefully that helps you.

I manage to figure it out- apprently the JDK is not compatible with 64-bit windows and ADB, so i had to install a 32-bit version of the JDK and run the steps to fix my prime in compatibility mode.

But seriously how annoying is it not to be able to factory reset. Is that with all adroid devices or just the Prime?

Yeah. Just the Prime in my experiences.

Also with root I lost hulu plus. I'm batting a thousand here.
