So flashing .tot did or did not allow you to boot? When you say you can't get data this may be because you're efs partition has been wiped, in which case there is nothing you can do but send it back.

so you're saying that when we backed up our efs it was pointless?
theres a way to restore it, as per http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451390

if youre stuck in fastboot, then you can fix that, and in theory if you still have(had) custom recovery, you could in theory flash an efs restore, one made from the skeleton of another. you can also, maybe, use adb to clunk it over, but im still working on that one. my phone has the restored .tot and it crashes right after boot and the freegee app(SOMEONE TELL THE DEV HE'S RTARTED) needssss internet to open, and it is IMPOSSIBLE. to connect to internet with a bad efs, wifi will not work, along with the radios. so to sum up my situation, i have a phone that turns on, turns back off, and repeats.

Well yes of course if you made a backup, then restore it. I was assuming that this was not the case.

Is there any way for you to get into recovery? I have not ran into any problem like the one you are encountering, and by the looks of it if a .tot wasn't able to fix it, your best bet may be to send it in and have someone look at it.
