    Cory ... thank you for sharing this ... I traded my Droid X today for a Fascinate (wife jacked my fascinate yesterday and gave me her DroidX). It was all hacked up all wrong and woes me trying to get back to stock after wiping and using odin. The nand you linked worked like a charm =D

    I want to start a vote that the thread title be changed to:

    Lol, thanks and I'm glad it worked! I remember the overwhelming feeling of frustration I felt when my Fascinate was FC looping, and it was not good at all.

    Did you do the lagfix? If so, get rid of it.

    did exactly what you said, and now i would like to buy you a stripper for a day =].
    XDA didnt have the answer for me, but you did, appreciate it man.

    Thanks for the stripper! Honestly, I've kept my distance from these so called "lag fixes". Aside from better Quadrant scores, I've failed to see how it's really benefited anyone. If you are truly having lag, you're better of looking at which 3rd party apps might be contributing to the problem or other variables. Feel free to list them here.

    ugh.... ran into issues after doing what you said....

    only thing that doesnt work now is my phone memory which is on 0.00 which i read and you apparently have to root the phone all over again???

  12. Cory Streater's Avatar
    Okay for this problem, I think you need to do this now, which shouldn't be that big of a deal since we have a 1-click root available in the sticky.

    Oh, and I can't say for sure, but step 1 seems redundant. I would think you could start at step 2.

    nevermind im an ***** i didnt install the drivers

    i have a new problem though...odin crashed in the middle of installing...do i reboot my phone and try again? my phone still shows the downloading screen and the progress bar is halfway

  15. Cory Streater's Avatar
    Ouch... I haven't seen that one yet. Can you reopen ODIN and try again without rebooting the phone? If not, I guess what you said would be my next move.

    to go settings, privacy, and to the wipe (factory reset) from there.

    it will reset your mbr.

    if that doesn't work, try this:

    {FIXED} 0.00 internal storage problem - xda-developers

    if that doesn't work try this:

    i'm going to assume you have the sdk and adb installed and setup properly on your computer.

    1. download the two referenced files in the first post in the xda thread(the mbr and the zip)

    all of the commands below are to be entered from the command prompt, if the sdk\tools isn't in your system path, be in the same directory as adb.exe is stored (C:\ANDROID\SDK\TOOLS on my system)

    2. place both of them in the root of your sdcard (use either windows to do it [easy way] or use adb push (at command prompt: "adb push C:\adb\original.mbr /sdcard" [assuming you have the mbr file stored in C:\adb] and then do the same thing for the zip)

    3. type: "adb shell"
    4. type: "cat /sdcard/original.mbr > /dev/block/mmcblk0"
    5. boot into clockwork recovery and flash the zip file over
    6. type: "adb shell"
    7. type: "mkdir /dbdata"
    8. type: "mount -t rfs -o nosuid,nodev,check=no /dev/block/stl10 /dbdata"
    9. type: "rm -f /dbdata/*.*"
    10. reboot into normal (not clockwork) recovery and wipe data
    10a. (this isn't in adrynalyne's method, but i did it to avoid a potential FC loop) boot into clockwork recovery and restore cory's nandroid backup in the first post of this thread
    11. reboot.


    you should now have a bone stock system with a stock kernel, 1.52GB of free phone storage, and no FC loop.

    let me know if you need clarification with anything else

    good luck!

    do you have the drivers installed?

    do you have usb debugging turned on?

    what happens when you type adb devices?

    I got all the way to the step where i now flash the nandroid backup i installed here. How long does this take. It seems that its stuck on the screen with the box and a yellow arrow going out, with the green android thingy. and it says "clockwork mod recovery v2.5.1.0", and its not doing anything. It's been about 5 minutes at that.


    EDIT: ok just did a battery pull and restarted the process and now i'm back up with no force closes. Now another question, this all happened to me while trying to remove voodoo lag fix. Now that i used my own stock nandroid backup that i did before doing the voodoo fix...in doing that did it remove the voodoo fix or is there other stuff i need to do?

    thanks again.

    if your phone shows 1.52 (ish) GB of phone storage (settings, sd and phone storage) then voodoo is gone.
