HELP! Bricked when upgrading to Modaco's custom ROM (my fault)
I tried and failed to upgrade to Modaco's custom ROM. Here is what I did:
-downloaded and installed patched recovery image
-did Nandroid backup
-installed 'enhanced' custom ROM (from stickied thread) WITHOUT wiping the phone (because I forgot)
-after reboot, the hero image would just loop over and over again
-rolled back to Nandroid backup and wiped this time
-re-installed Modaco's ROM ---> got boot loop again
-read this thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=547284
) and tried to clear data by booting while pressing HOME + BACK (I think this is where I unknowingly deleted my nandroid backup)
-still got boot loop, tried restoring backup ---> got "Error performing restore! Try running 'nandroid-mobile.sh restore' from console"
-used adb to push other ROMS onto the SD card and tried to install them, same problem
-tried repartitioning sd card using this (http://androidandme.com/2009/08/news...droid-apps2sd/
-partitions are 1434MB fat32, 512MB ext3, 32MB linux-swap
-tried doing partitioning both before and after installation of ROM --> no effect
-tried repairing ext filesystems --> no effect
I don't know what else to do. Just to be clear, when booting: both androids come up and make the noise and then the htc noise chimes in and "hero" is replaced by "htc" before the loop is repeated. I'm pretty sure the Hero is unbranded (bought it from Chess in Norway).
Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
