    Yeah thats what I figured. Maybe put some kinda bootable stock recover or something on the USB Storage. The thing is ...now when I put stuff on the USB Storage even though it looks like its copying ..when I unmount and go to the phone the file is not there. So i cant copy or delete stuff from the storage anymore.

    But yeah you mean put it in the storage and go to Stock Recover and "update from zip" right

    FYI, just going off what the user posted there for you to download its the same exact packages I have posted in the Rooting & Hacking forums which I think you said you already tried which will restore back to Gingerbread v.2.3.4

    Good luck.

    If you do have to flash the system images manually here is a quick step by step of what you need to do...

    1. Setup a file folder directory on your computer say "Flash to Stock"

    2. Place the following files inside that directory from what was provided above...

    adb ex.
    adbwinapi
    adbwinusbapi
    fastboot.exe
    boot.img
    bootloader.img
    radio.img
    recovery.img
    system.img
    userdata.img

    3. Boot your device into your bootloader.

    4. Navigate to the folder you make with all those files inside from your Windows Explorer. Now hold SHIFT and Right Click and choose "Open Command window here"

    5. Now the flashing fun begins... Make sure your device is plugged into your computer.

    Enter in these codes one by one pressing return after each one and allowing the device and computer to flash the images. Really the whole process from start to finish should only take a few minutes..

    ** Note: The second to last line "fastboot oem lock" is optional, if you want to lock your device then use it. If you want to leave it unlocked for future, then skip it.

    I tried this method but it keeps saying after demon succesfully started "error device not found" ... I tried unplugging and plugging in, turning it on and off but its just something is from with USB debugging from the ROM i think

    So I tried this. And I got excited cause I noticed things were actually happening! Haha similar to when I tried it on my mac. I put every command and they all said OKAY (I attached screenshots). The phone rebooted, the google screen came up it dissapeared for a second and came back on, then the lights at the bottom lit up (back, menu, search Home). Oh but the lock dissapeared. So it is the google screen with no lock. It is where it is now. Again it is stuck here. On the Google screen with those lights on. How long should I leave it like this? it has been 5-10 mins should it have started already?

    The only way to actually start the phone now if it stays at the Google screen again is to use Odin to install the ICS 4.0.4 here
    ([ODIN][ICS][4.0.4][NS4G] ICS 4.0.4 IMM26D Leaked Official Update)

    But once it starts...it is not a fresh 4.0.4 it takes me back to that damn Old Rom that is all tore up.

    Sorry here are the screenshots seems everything went through fine. Damn i seemed to have deleted the other screen shot but everything said OKAY after it was executed. The final thing it said I believe was rebooting.

    My phone is still on the google screen. Its been what like 20 mins? I really thought Paul627s method was going to do it but it seems no. Ah....

    I want to give up already but I dont know. Using a Blackberry Tour 9630 is brutal haha

    Update: Left it on the Google screen for like an hour nothing happened. I gave up and took the battery out and put it away.


    I have no insurance I wonder what a Sprint Service Center can do to it? Even if they charge me a little money

    To be honest unless u get a tech geek who does the same as you have done (unlock n root), sprint may not even touch the phone. A thought I had is u know how to use Odin, couldn't u load another time in the same method (leaked 4.0.4 I.C.S. from Sprint) or any other rom. It sucks that it's been so complicated for you. If u could in lock ur phone n install the files on ur USB memory of the phone it may force the phone to default. Have you tried rom manager to delete the troublesome rom?

    Default Re: So I messed up my phone.

    Hmmm .. I'm confused as to why its not erasing the old ROM as you claim...

    Odin is intended to literally overwrite & wipe the device's system partition, etc where all the actual OS is contained.

    Then my instructions to manually flash and your screen shots verify it did in fact write the stock v2.3.4 Gingerbread images to your device...

    Have you removed all other files from Odin? If you just added the new stuff it could be trying to flash it all and could cause the problems you are having. (Never used odin but I think this is how it works). I would try unistalling everything, reinstalling it and try again.

    Odin is pretty straight forward. You have normally 2 or 3 files.

    1. Is the modem/radio
    2. Another is called the ".pit" file which handles the partition sizes of the device (this isn't always used.. Depends on the setup of the package your flashing)
    3. Third is the rest of the package in one, system/kernel/bootloader/boot/recovery,etc..

    Really you don't want to mess with any of these files, you take them as they are and use them. Altering or changing something is a good way to brick your device.

    Well the only way to get it to start now is if I use Odin to install the 4.0.4. It will not start a fresh 4.0.4 but rather the old tore up ROM. The weird thing is that it starts that rom but the phone itself is not Rooted anymore. Superuser is not installed (even though I know the superuser zip is in the USB Storage) and whenever I try to start any of the old apps I used to have NONE run. Even though all the icons are on my home screen and other screens and what not.

    And you are right about ROM Manager, I think the backups I made there are what are causing the problem. What I am going to do or have my friend do (since I dont know how to root the phone from Windows or MAC or what executable commands to run and whatnot) is RE ROOT my phone and hope ROM Manager or Titanium Backup and delete stuff from there since I feel a backup is causing this problem. The thing is now that I remember I remember I deleted all the ROM Backups on ROM Manager and I checked on the storage and they were all still there under back up folders and each backup took up like 1GB of space.

    The funny thing throughout this whole process is that I have like 4 GB of free storage on the USB Storage and I have added, deleted, wiped, erased, alll kinda stuff and huge sized files, and the storage is still EXAAACTLY the same as it has been since before all this started haha

    Yeah man its pretty crazy.

    I attached pictures to try and take you through my journey!! Haha
    First pic is The Google screen after I followed your directions to do GB stock.

    2nd pic, interesting because it went from the Yellow Android guy sweeping in bootload mode (i attached a pic earlier) to this different Bootload Screen...almost like its the GB bootload screen no?

    3rd pic, So since it froze I installed 4.0.4 with Odin again.

    So the phone started and the ICS boot animation came up and it took a while to start I was hoping it was wiping this time and going to start fresh or something but no...it started and it looked like this (4th pic) which is what my phone looked like exactly before this mess started. If I remember correctly its how it looked when I made one of my last backups on ROM manager.

    So like android tooley suggested I just tried to get into ROM Manager and surprisingly it actually started I was like WTF! Haha. And I went into the backups section and there were 3 ROM Backups. I tried to install one just for the hell of it since I tried anything anyway and and it rebooted and the following screen came up (5th pic) ...its like an Android guy open with like a Red Yield thing... I just restarted the phone and am back on it now. I tried to start ROM Manager again to do stuff from it but it just says unfortunately ROM Manager has closed like it does with 99% of anything else i try to start. But I think if I start it right after the phone starts it will start for some reason.

    I just went into the USB Storage with Astro File Manager and every single file that has been there from the beggining is still there including the Folder "clockwork mod" that has the backups that I think is causing the problems. I still have the same 4Gb of space


    The last pic is a picture of the phone info I dont know if that helps and the phone options when ima shut it down still have reboot and other options I know are not from the stock ics. Aside from that like I have said before every other screen including the home screen one have all the same app icons that i had before, games, etc ...except hitting on any of them just says "unfortunately ___ has stopped"

    So again, the phone starts with the tore up ROM. I should be able to do something with it starting but what hmmmmm

    What do you mean removed all files from ODIN? I run the program 1.85 from their site I downloaded, and I follow the method on here to install the 4.0.4 leak. I dont really do anything else. hmmm i dont know what you mean by uninstalling everything.. you mean unzipping the odin program from the .zip somewhere else? to another directory or something?

    Hmmmm could this .pit file aide whatsoever? Maybe somehow reformat the damn partition or something so the storage gets wiped or something?

    On Odin i even checked Re Partition and all kinda other things to try and force it to wipe the storage or something but with these things checked The Process would not go through and it wouldnt start
