I have different recovery with proper support for vfat (default recovery has problems with it). If you are interested I can publish it.
I tried booting different in different modes, pulled the battery for several minutes, and tried flashing radio to no avail. Still dead. I'm prepping to flash sbf right now. afaik vfat uses more space to store files than FAT32. Why would I want a recovery with vfat support?
EDIT: Is this the best way to flash SBF
? I thought there might be a different method to go about it from CM10, but couldn't find any such methods.

(For what it's worth, "-110" means TIMEOUT.) After a lot of poking around, switching /data to ext3 instead of ext4 (and modifying the boot image/ramdisk accordingly) seems to have fixed it for me. No idea why ext4 would be so problematic but I'm happy for now.
I mounted the internal SD via recovery earlier, and ran chkdsk on it in Windows. It claimed to have fixed several bad sectors, but it still didn't mount the drive after rebooting. I will try this ext3 trick too. Aren't all partitions ext3 by default anyway? Isn't that why there's an "upgrade partition to ext4" option in ROMracer's recovery?
