Accidently exited Bootstrap, phone hangs a CyanogenMod boot animation

Hi there,
CyanogenMod is the first ROM I try to flash to my unmodified Milestone2. I followed the green steps from this thread's first post.
1) Root your phone (you may use SuperOneClick root method)
2) Install Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery
3) Open Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery and tap "Bootstrap Recovery", then "Reboot Recovery" granting root privileges. The phone should reboot into recovery. Use volume buttons to navigate, camera button to accept, power button to go back. You will install files by selecting "Install zip from sdcard".
4) Optionally: create a backup of your data
5) Install latest CM ROM image file.

6) Optionally: install Google Apps
7) Select "Wipe data/factory reset"
8) Reboot and enjoy
9) Optionally: select baseband version corresponding to your country and BPSW version
Unfortunately I couldn't proceed to the steps in red because I accidently fired an action (I think it was the uppermost option (reboot) in the Bootstrap menu.) The phone rebooted and hangs at the beautiful CyanogenMod boot animation.
There is another error I made: I installed the CyanogenMod ROM CM10-20121228-NIGHTLY-milestone2.zip already in step 3. Before creating the backup. Does this mean that the backup I created is corrupt?
The boot screen is shown for about half an hour now and the LED glows red.
Pressing the power button (long or short) shows no effect. So what's next?
Can my phone be saved?
Help is very much appreciated.

Regards MaeSiuS

If you did a backup after flashing CM, you created a backup of CM, not your original ROM.
Regarding the phone hanging in the boot screen: take the battery out, put it back in, turn it on, and when the led flashes blue, press the volume down button. Go to recovery, and wipe data.
Good luck.

Cyanogen up and running

Hi Lean946,
thanks for your advice. Cyanogen is running now. Google apps were missing. Got the gapps*.zip but the bootloader you enter by pressing X+Camera+Power and then @ had no option to install zip from SD-Card
But the one you get according to your hint has this option in the Recovery section. Now I can start reinstalling all my apps.
Once again, thank you very much.

Goodnight,
MaeSiuS

for thoose of you who miss pdroid in this rom (opd isn't patchable as well) try this one:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2320783

[MOD][XPOSED][4.1+][BETA][DEV] XPrivacy 0.34 The ultimate privacy manager [20130624]

you need xposed installer who integrates this app into the framework. works very well and is a better solution than lbe security. isn't it?

here's a screenshot

Slow performance

Hello!

I installed this mod, however for some reason my milestone 2 is performing really slow, while the processor is set to 1000mhz.

Does anyone have a clue what could be the problem and how to solve this?

Regards,
Leon

1. never quote the OP`s

2. do you have a clean installation, or a lot of apps installed? Do a full wipe in your custom recovery and check if your problems are gone. If not:

3. flash the crossbreeder. That will speed up your phone. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2113150
recomendation for all users!

4. go to the following path with any root explorer "system/build.prob" and open that file as a text file. Scroll down and add the folling line:
sys.mem.max_hidden_apps=4
save this file. Don´t change the permissions! Must be rw-r-r. And reboot.
You will set a max. prozesslimit with this line. (For any other users. This won´t work on cm10.1 roms. CM removed that funktion for later builds than cm10).

5. Reboot into bootloader and overclock your MS2 to 1.200 Mhz. Increase the vsel as well (mine are 64 at 1200 Mhz). you will find some other experiances in this thread. Use the search function.

6. flash the BoostedASSv2 governor http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2013117
good luck!

    Try instead of the "X" the "up" arrow button.

    Really stuck as the CM10 does not have SIM toolkit which i really need.

    Any howtos or ideas how to get it up and running on the phone?.

    isn´t that included in the spare parts apk? I can´t check it myself, cause I deleted this app (didn´t need it).
    But I can upload it out of the System folder of the ROM zip. Try it out....

    I think it is not so easy.
    The toolkit i am seeking for is for Estonian Mobile-ID

    The problem seems to be similar.
    https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=40661
    So i have a feeling that it's not only my problem.
    So far the proposed workaround does not work.

    if you follow your link, you will see, that this app doesn´t run on Android 4.2 and up. This thread is for Android 4.1.x, so you shouldn´t get problems.
    For what do you need this app exactly? Maybe we can help you solving your problem otherwise....

    of course a little.... but as you don´t need the highest level all the time (just in case of multiple processes at the same time), you won´t really realize it. Try it out and find the answer. You can undo the overclocking when ever you want....

      Hints & issues
      • lgCamera works better with video recording
      • Currently wipe data and cache in OTA updater does not work
      • CM10 does not contain Car home, you need to install it manually (search for google car home)

      Installation guide for stock roms users

      1) Root your phone (you may use SuperOneClick root method)
      2) Install Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery
      3) Open Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery and tap "Bootstrap Recovery", then "Reboot Recovery" granting root privileges. The phone should reboot into recovery. Use volume buttons to navigate, camera button to accept, power button to go back. You will install files by selecting "Install zip from sdcard".
      4) Optionally: create a backup of your data
      5) Install latest CM ROM image file.
      6) Optionally: install Google Apps
      7) Select "Wipe data/factory reset"
      8) Reboot and enjoy :)
      9) Optionally: select baseband version corresponding to your country and BPSW version


      Installation guide for CMx roms users

      1) Optionally: create a backup of your data
      2) Install latest CM ROM image file.
      3) Optionally: install Google Apps
      4) Wipe data and cache partition
      5) Reboot and enjoy :)
      6) Optionally: select baseband version corresponding to your country and BPSW version


      Installing updates

      The most convenient way of installing updates is through built-in OTA updater. Note that currently wipe options do not work there, so you may need to do it manually in recovery. For most cases that won't be necessary though.
