make sure you install the CWM by going into fastboot (vol - and power on) Hook up usb, then drop the recovery.img in the folder on the MOBILE drive.
Extract that zip to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup on the sd and look for mounts in CWM. First format system, data, cache, and dalvik cache, then under the recovery options select the Stock_Triumph_1980-01-06.00.00.34 folder, and it will restore a never powered on backup of the stock rom.
Thank you so much bartino! i deleted one of the system files by accident that caused market to crash and i couldn't install anything since i havent installed a file explorer app... factory reset didn't bring the file back. Stock ROM worked like a charm
My phone started acting up after its 1-year warranty was up - of course - and it seems the OS is corrupt, but I can't send it back to VM. I've tried the reset, no joy, and am hoping to reinstall to stock and retain my VM number and service. Currently, having a bunch of wonky errors, although I can make calls. Am I correct in assuming (always dangerous) that after reinstalling the stock OS I will be able to re-activate my phone with Virgin and keep continuing my service?
