I have incredible, rooted, with cyanogenmod 7. it has been working as normal for months and months. the other day, it just got stuck in the boot animation. i hadn't changed anything, system tweaks, etc, right before this.
i hold volume down and press power, and it goes to bootloader mode. normally here, i can select RECOVERY, and then goes to the black screen, where i could do many things, drastic as wipe the phone, reinstall cyanogenmod, g-apps, etc.
whats my problem now, is that when i hold power down and power and get to the white recovery screen, if i select RECOVERY, it doesnt go where it used to. it goes to the OTHER white screen where choices are, REBOOT, POWER DOWN, etc. So i select to go into recovery mode (the black screen) but it never goes there now. Always did before. Just goes to that next white screen, letting me reboot and start the cycle over again. I've tried with no SC card, no difference.
I found a post someone giving specific directions to format sd card, put radio update only on card, and boot with that in phone. I did, and it successfully said it updated, but still nothing has changed.
I cant get into recovery mode, to reformat, wipe, run any updates, nothing. I've tried so many times i can't even guess. I think it has become a brick. But I finally posted here hoping i may find some advice.
Anyone have any ideas of what i can do, if i can get into recovery mode?
if this helps, this all the info on the white screen - holding power down and powering on:
