[Q] Trouble flashing thunderbolt
To begin with, I am a complete noob with any and all phone mods. I'll run down what I've done and whats happening when I do it.
I used the adb method to root my tbolt. Once that was done, I installed Superuser, and Rom Manager and flashed with the latest CWR, after clearing the download manager and turning on the erase option in settings. I have done this (flash cwr) before each attempt to flash a rom.
I have tried 3 roms: Das Bamf 1.3.2 themed (tried twice), The Perfect Storm 1.2 and VirusROM RC1b3. I used identical steps to flash them:
1. Booted to CWR
2. made a nandroid backup
3. wiped data
4. wiped cache
5. wiped Davlik (sp?)
6. wiped battery
7. install zip from sd, choose zip from sd
8. after installation, reboot
When I reboot, the white boot screen with green htc logo appears, disappears, appears, disappears, and so on. I assume this is what people are referring to as a boot loop. It happened with both Roms, and luckily I am still able to get back to recovery and restore the stock rooted rom.
I've asked for help in the android forums, and a couple of people there have been trying to help, but the only real suggestion I've received is bad dl's. I haven't been able to find the md5's for the .zips to compare to what I generate, but I can't believe 3 straight dl's are corrupt.
Anyone have any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated.
