No matter what ROM I load, my green-lens Defy gets stuck on the Moto logo and recovery is no longer accessible, requiring a full SBF to restore. I've tried starting with US TMo 2.1 as well as CEE 2.2.2, and after loading the SBF, I root with either SuperOneClick v2.3.1, or Framaroot, then install 2ndInit 2.3, and then disable USB debug. Up to this point, everything works great and CWM is fully accessible on boot. But attempting to load any custom ROM will result in the stuck moto logo and recovery no longer accessible. I've tried all the wipes before and after installing ROMs, including the defy_fullwipe script, and factory reset. Also tried reformatting the SD. Any ideas??? I can't think of what to try next.
This all started when I recently decided to try MS2Ginger5.1, after successfully running CM7.x for years. MS2Ginger refused to install, so I read that TWRP was needed, so I loaded defy_twrp_recovery_188.8.131.52, and retried MS2Ginger5.1. The installation seemed to proceed and complete normally, however, ever since, my Defy gets stuck Moto logo and no recovery access after loading any ROM, including CM7.2.
Thanks for suggestions - this may be the end of the road for my trusty Defy
