EI22 - stuck at loading screen
I was going to use the EC05 to EI22 update.zip file posted here to get myself some gingerbread goodness, but I have a couple questions plus I ran into a problem.
Questions (have asked in multiple threads but because of the frenzy over gingerbread release it's like trying to talk at a heavy metal concert: I am fully stock ec05 EXCEPT for having done root so that I could do wi-fi hotspot (from advice given in this thread a little while back - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1236669
). Will this interfere with doing the EI22 update or do I need to back it out? I want to say I recall someone mentioning the update would go fine and I'd just have to re-root.. but looking for specifics.
Problem: I put the update.zip onto my SDcard, reboot my phone..... and it's just sitting there staring at me, Samsung boot logo as bright as ever, for about 20 minutes now. I had been trying to do the vol-down, camera, power key set to get into service mode, but it never got past this boot screen - yanked the battery and SDcard and trying again and it's still just sitting here.
Leaving it off, plugged in the power and rather than getting a proper charging display with the battery and charge meter/status - it has a blank battery with the radial spokes that would normally be rotating just sitting there. What happened to my phone? O_O
