[Q] Help.. AP mode only - after succssful root
I apologize first that I am completely confused after reading posts for hours trying to fix my problem. Second, I know enough to get myself into trouble & I've succeeded. I'd been running Icarus 183 on my previous Bionic for months, so after shutting the truck lid on it, I set out to install the same on my replacement. Not realizing that JB had been released is where my ^$&#& happened. Here's the order of what I did which has lead me to a phone that boots to AP mode when you turn it on, or to the menu when holding both volume keys and powering on. If I go thru the power keys and select normal boot, I get the red dot and the screen will stay backlit.... nothing else.
1] New replacement phone: I used the Virtual Machine program to root.... This worked perfectly.
2] Goomanager had reinstalled from my google account, but I don't think I had ever used it.
3] I had installed Icarus thru the safe strap (3.05, I think) on my old phone. I went ahead and installed this again (no problems so far)
4] I started to install Icarus thru safestrap again, but I didn't like partitioning, so I figured I would download and install a rom using GooMgr
5] I believe I chose a rom named "Carbon" from those roms GooMgr stated was compatible... When I ran GooMgr nothing appeared to happen, so I rebooted the phone thinking I would just go ahead and install Icarus using safestrap.
6] When I pressed the button to boot into safestrap, the Carbon rom I had started to load began to run.. (apparently GooMgr could not reboot due to having safestrap installed??)
7] Naturally, the installed failed, giving me the dead android symbol... I removed the battery to reboot, but only AP mode comes up.
8] I am still at this point, having tried RSD Lite 5.7, updated Motorola drivers, and have now tried as who knows how many fxz files to restore it..
9] RSD Lite continues to fail at step 5 , where the phone reports "FAIL"
All I want is the stock JB back, so I can be up an running again.
