Default [Q] Just soft bricked my brother's cappy

Hi all.
Greetings from Mexico. So this day I tried to install CM 10.2 to my brother's Captivate. I follow my own set of instructions since I already have CM 10.2 on my Nexus S. I had to install it twice, in order to partition the phone (I don't recall that on Crespo). So it goes into boot but keeps spinning the ring with the blue face in the middle. It's been an hour and still doesn't boot. I tried flashing back to 10.1 or 10.1 experimental with same results, even that it had been working on CM 10.1. Any ideas? I can still use CMW. Thanks in advance.

You should read the full instructions before flashing. You'll have to flash CM7 first.

Thank you for your reply.
The phone already had CM 10.1 since it came out. And yesterday I did a factory reset, clean cache, clean dalvik, flashed CM 11 snapshot M2 and gapps with ART support, and it worked! Phone it's back the way it should. Now I'm just waiting for full ART implementation in future versions... and it seems purring quite well now. Cheers!

Stick with Dalvik VM on Captivate. ART is still experimental, requires more RAM and much better hardware. You won't see any advantages on Captivate; just the opposite - less RAM available for running apps and Android system will start closing inactive processes much sooner.
