sorry im just heading to bed so this is more of a reminder for me to post tomorrow but
what does it say when you try and mount the sd in clockwork? have to tried taking a logcat?
I had this problem with a specific pair of headphones. solution: make sure the headphones are in all the way. Seriously for some reason that pair have a second stage of "in" so they were not actually plugged in when i thought they were.
I plan on making this a LWP. :)
It's finally working thanks again to Houka420 for the help, I made this using six6sicks Ubuntu bootanimation. Wanted to keep it simple yet classy like a real OS bootscreen....
