Don't give up yet - I had this problem and nearly threw my Torch out of the window.

This is why I recommend using another PC other than the one you normally use to backup your device. I struggled with this problem for 3 weeks before stumbling upon the solution. I was reloading my OS sometimes twice daily - NOT FUN!! :irked:
Since I got things sorted, I have not had ONE unscheduled Boot or hung Boot.
The ONLY problem I have had with .450 is the darn Contacts bug has reared its head again. Although this time not as bad. I have all my contacts and can access them, but my other Apps (like Vlingo) can't - weird.
Good luck - hope this helps you out.
Free your mind........your ass will follow!
