Default [Q] Cant boot into recovery

Used MT's vz7 to vz8 ....I have root on vz8 but cannot get into recovery. Every time I try I get a black screen and have to a battery pull to get phone back. I tried recovery through rom manager, manual with the power and volume, nothing but a frozen phone. Was running gingervolt vz7...... Now I'm stuck.

ROM manager does not work with the Revo. Use MTs all in one to get into recovery.

Do you know how to use lgpnst? Or do a hard factory reset. The info is on the forum, but if it wont boot you either have to flash a .tot or hard reset prolly both, then start over get back to rooted zv8 and use Mt's AIO or push through adb if that does not work.


Here's what you need;

step 1 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1337386

step 2 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1583023

Then if Aio Zv8 dosent work

Step 3 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1605148

Read instruction carefully and follow them to the letter and you should be fine.
Also to get out of that boot loop you can do a hard factory reset by pulling and replacing the batt then pushing power and volume down with the phone off. Or flashing a .tot

any questions, i am willing to help as i am relatively new to this myself but search the forums first the answers are there.
