Shouldn't the installer handle it on its own? The unit starts to bootloop, I can see that an android device shows up in the hard ware list. I can stop it by taking out the battery and restart the device and pressing volume up and down simultaneously. The V9 now enters download mode.
I thought that I now should be entering CVM recovery or another recovery to be able to flash a rom and then flash stoch FTM recovery mode back. But no luck.
