    Rolling reboot error after installing 238/287 lyrical hyrbrid

    My storm is rebooting over and over and over and I can not wipe it because of this. Anyone know how to wipe or brick this phone if it keeps rebooting before I can get it to connect to BBSAK?

    The reason why it is doing this probably isn't the hybrids fault. I did install it correctly but after installing it I restored the data and found all the archived icons to be annoying so I went into the phone with the windows explorer and deleted all the data for app world and then pulled the battery and now the phone is trashed. I suppose that probably wasn't the best way to delete the archives!

    Now what!

    Ok, interesting discovery!!!

    I activated my 8230 pulled the memory card on the storm and held down the power button for 30 seconds (I'm pretty sure that does absolutely nothing but HEY I gave it a try) and the phone is up and running.

    I'm guessing the pulling of the memory card somehow solved this issue. I also noticed that the archived icons are still on my phones desktop!!!

    So yeh I will be bricking the phone re-installing the os and this time I will only be restoring the contacts and custom word dictionary.

    FUN STUFF! Glad my phone isnt destroyed!

    If your phone is doing constant reboots, you need to activate bbsak when the start up bar is approximately 1/5 to 1/3 on a boot then it will connect and wipe.

    Another thing u can do is hold down the return key and it will start your phone in safe mode... Hold it til the phone boots.

    And maybe try jlcmdr for wiping when its stuck like that instead of bbsak

    it wasn't booting up far enough to use either of those programs... However I didn't know about the return key thing. It seems to be fine now that I removed the memory card. I am going to format the mem card and I am going to re-wipe and reload the phone and I'm not going to restore the onboard memory this time around.

    It def gave me a scare though.

    Thanks for the tip on the return key!
