    Default Droid Incredible keeps rebooting

    Evening guys,

    My problem is my droid incredible keeps rebooting in an endless loop. I hear the "droid" audio file then the animation, then the droid eye to indicate its loading, then it repeats.

    I had been running the pre-release OTA of 2.2 I got last year and its been buggy so I decided to use rom manager to switch over to cyanogen 6.1 only to find that none of the apps(market, internet, phone, contact list, etc) worked. I tried rebooting and nothing changed. My recourse was to reinstall the backup I had made of my earlier 2.2 rom, which has led us to the problem we're at now. I can't get my phone to start and I'm really interested in just unrooting the phone at this point.

    What can I do guys?

    Here is a link to the factory RUU to re-install Stock Froyo.

    The Google Apps (market, etc) have to be flashed separately. There are legal reasons they can not include them in the base ROM. Once you flash CM6 you should flash the Google Apps package (GAPPS) and then you should be good to go.

    Before doing anything though - Boot into Recovery and re-flash CM6 after doing a full reset of the phone within Clockwork. The install package should be on your SD card under Clockwork/downloads/mirror.teamdouche.com/get/inc/???.zip

    That should get you re-booted again and then you can load GAPPS.

    Good catch - Didn't think about Clockwork being the new version.

    I reinstalled cm 6.1 and ran it but its doing the exact same thing now. An endless loop of the boot animation, never getting to the homescreen.

    Try Upstreammiami's suggestion of downgrading your Clockwork Recovery to 2.5.x and re-flash again.

    Here's a link:

    Put this on the root of your SD Card and flash from HBOOT. Then re-flash cm6.1

    alright, school me on this one. I'm not versed in how to downgrade clockwork inside of clockwork. I'm also not sure the file i downloaded is right.

    OK - Download the Clockwork 2.5.1.2 file to your PC - and rename it PB31IMG.zip. Be sure that under File Options, in Control Panel, you uncheck the Hide Known File Extensions option under the View Options Tab. Otherwise you might name it PM31IMG.zip.zip and it won't work.

    Copy the file to the root of the SD card. (Straight on the card not in any folders)

    Start the phone by holding the down volume key and the power button.

    It should flash the recovery.

    Reboot into the new recovery and re-flash CM 6.1

    LOL I didn't notice until after I posted. Then I was confused because I could have sworn you had linked to the file! So I added it. Thought I was losing my mind!

    Pville, I was doing it that way the whole time, except I had my card formatted to FAT only. Once I switched it to FAT32 everything went smoothly. Kinda frustrating to do it right but get caught up on a small detail.

    Appreciate the help from both of you guys.

    I'm gonna bump this thread to ask a question related. I'm thinking of flashing cm7 rc1 over cm6 to try it out and my Clockwork recovery is back to 3.0. Would I need to reflash it down to 2.5 before flashing the rom to avoid the previous issue or am I fine to go from here?

    Yes. I don't believe 6.1 has updated the install scripts for CWM 3.x. So to reinstall 6.1 you would have to downgrade to 2.5. However, if you make a 3.x nandroid of 6.1 then you should be able to nandroid back with 3.x no problem.

    I meant when flashing cm7. Would I need to revert to 2.5 for that to install without flaws?

    Nope - 3.x works fine with CM7

    yay, I'm back but for a slightly different reason. Is there a definitive guide to doing backups so that I can carry over all of my data any time I flash a new rom?

    I'm looking to backup contacts, sms, mms, call logs, and app data. I'd like to be able to just do a back up then run the file so its as if I never deleted any of it. Each time I've flashed a rom, I've lost something along the way, no matter how hard I've tried to avoid it.

    You can use Titanium to backup everything, system and apps/data but be very selective what you restore back. A lot of the system data should not be restored.

    Thats the only real downside to flashing ROMs, the full data wipe involved in doing it. Pville's right, Titanium can save you alot of grief but I would reinstall app's only, no data unless you absolutly need it. Otherwise your just asking for problems and force closes.

    I remember reading about an SMS/MMS backup app here on A/C a few days ago, possibly a week or more ago, about an app that would back up all your conversations and what not.

    As far as contacts go, if you're logging in to your gmail account and you have your contacts stored there, they should just magically reappear when you log in to your account, yeaaaaaaahh the omnipotent Google!!!

    I use sms backup +, and it works well. It backs up your call logs and sms mms to gmail. Think you could also back it up to sd card if you prefer.

    As an example. My save status/progress in angry birds or settings i've used in specific apps is mainly what I'm looking at. Not necessarily system files unless thats what those are. I'm just trying to avoid having to refind the apps and then having to remember how I had them setup. I dont flash often but I find it takes longer than it should to get back up and running because of stuff like that.

    Not that saving my progess in angry birds is earth shattering if I lose it.

    Will astro be able to save my apps and reload them(with settings) after a flash? I had forgot it even had a backup feature.

    I'll look into titanium as well so long as the free version will handle all of that.

    Thanks again guys. I wish I was versed enough to help as opposed to always asking for.

    Sarah - is your phone rebooting after flashing something or is rebooting at 2:00 am after taking the latest OTA update?

    Reason I'm asking is that the June/July OTA has a bug where the phone reboots during a memory cleanup routine.
