Decks ICS alpha 5
First of all, I know I'm dealing with an alpha release so I'm not complaining, just trying to understand what happened. This is going to be long winded but bear with me...
I cleared data and cache with a factory reset, wiped dalvik, then flashed Decks alpha 5 release with gapps. Everything fired up smoothly and it was awesome... until I realized that my SD card wouldn't mount. I read about the issues but I don't remember seeing this being one of them. Now how am I supposed to get back? Well, I ignored it and kept playing around until I decided to reboot into recovery to check things out. Oops! No more recovery either. My phone vibrates 5 times and goes to a black screen instead. I pulled the battery and tried booting up. Same thing. Pull it again and boot into hboot. Try to boot into the ROM again from there hoping for different results. Fail. Try that again, this time with the USB cable powering the phone. It works. So it looks like since I can't mount the SD card, I definitely have no easy way back. I get back into hboot and hit factory reset. Now my phone is s-on again and I have neither a recovery or a ROM to boot into. I flash the stock img and I'm basically back to a fresh out of the box Incredible, minus the fact that the SD card still won't mount, and the USB is jacked up too. Now apparently I need to download the SDK and use fastboot and ADB command line to fix both of these issues so that my phone is stable, then re-root and re-flash to get back (well, I'll be going back to safe and sound CM 7.1).
So a few questions: Has anyone else had the SD card issue with this particular ROM (I read even more after the fact and it seems it was supposed to not be an issue in this release)? Has anyone else been through this recovery process? Is there an easier way that I'm missing?
Thanks in advance.
