Unhappy [Q] Applied update, phone rebooted, now uhh?

Ok, so I updated from stock, using official update phone rebooted and stayed at samsung screen forever it kept blinking and vibrating. Pulled battery, tried restarting it goes samsung loading bar -> VM welcome -> flashing/vibrating samsung screen.....I can get into recovery AND download mode. Tried clearing cache, factory reset, and updating again, but still gets stuck at samsung screen. I am desperate guys I really need help, I am going on a LONG road trip this weekend and need my phone so ANY help would really be appreciated. THANKS!

When u say update do u mean u went from ex. 2.1 to 2.2.... android that is? U should elaborate a hit more, if what I mentioned is the case then revert back to the ROM prior to the update. If u give more info I may be able to help from my personal experiences

There's always the chance that a phone can get bricked, no mater what ...even from an 'official' update from your service provider. With that said, however, I've downloaded the Virgin Mobile 2.2 Froyo update file that's floating around and it installed no problem on my phone.

For the first poster ....I believe that the stock recovery is necessary for the VM 2.2 update to work. I won't swear on that though.

Here's what I did. Downloaded the 2.2 VM Froyo update to my laptop. Renamed it 'update.zip'. Copied it to the root of my sdcard on my Intercept via bluetooth. Booted into recovery mode and applied the update. Twiddled my thumbs while it updated itself from recovery and then rebooted....and the reboot takes a while, maybe 5 minutes. Presto ...2.2 Froyo.

I think that you didn't wait long enough...as the reboot takes a looooong time, maybe 5 minutes or more at least. Patience is a virtue.

You're making this way to convoluted. All that one needs to do when updating from stock 2.1 on the VM Intercept is to download the (official unofficial) update file, rename it to 'update.zip' on the root of the sdcard, boot into recovery, and apply the update. That's it. It installs Froyo and the new radio, etc, itself...all from the update.zip. No need to mess with kernels and recovery or wipe anything ....except one's own azz if they go take a chit while waiting for it to reboot. In fact, when I updated it even kept all of my 2.1 widgets and icons and imported them into Froyo ...I didn't need to do a thing.


Oh, I see ....you had to convert your Intercept back to 'stock' first. Nevermind...

Installed all three wiped dalvik cashe rebooted each time in custom recvery. When i got to stk rec. rebooted to stock rec. Ran update.zip 2.2 may take a while but it booted no problems.
