    That's strange. I'm trying to figure out what might cause that and why it bootloops when you try and get into recovery from hboot. Did this happen after he accepted the OTA on his rooted phone? I don't know if this will work, but try pulling the sim card and then see if it will let you into recovery through the hboot menu using the power/volume down button combo. If it doesn't bootloop, do a full wipe (data, cache, dalvik, and format everything except the sd card) and then load the ROM. I'll have my fingers crossed.

    I successfully flashed the infected deboated ICS ROM. Only problem i'm having so far is that I have no 3g/4g connectivity. I can connect to my wi-fi but no mobile network. Any idea why or how to fix that? Thanks for everything.

    Ahh scratch that last question.. it turned out to be something dumb. Under the "access points" dropdown in the mobile networking settings there is only one option, but it wasn't selected. I selected it and my 3g/4g started working. I think i'm all good now... tomorrow i'll look into how to disable OTA updates and I should be good to go. Thanks again for all the advice here... really helped me out.

    Yanked the SIM card and tried rebooting into hboot then selected recovery aaaaand... Bootloop cycle all over again. Still no luck. (and yes, he tried to install the OTA while being rooted via Revolutionary)

    I'm sorry to say that if you can't get the phone into recovery, I'm not sure I can help. Hopefully someone else has an idea.

    My phone had this problem too, I actually tried unrooting using the revolutionary method, but it didn't end up working. So now the update keeps trying to push onto my phone and it contintues to reboot, but sometimes it also turns on. When it goes to the hboot screen, it says locked and s-on, but it's still rooted. Also, when I click on recovery it doesn't do anything.. so I'm guessing that's messed up too.

    What should I use to do a step by step full unroot (that will work in my case since I think my backup is gone) or to do an update of some sort that will take the ota update from pushing? All of this stuff confuses me and most of the links I find are dead..

    Thank you
