    Default Downloaded Vicious JB v3 Stuck in Nexus 7? screen

    So I downloaded it off ROM Manager and now the phone won't go to the main screen. It's stuck in the "X" logo/icon.

    What do I do to get this thing working again?

    Let it load. It can take a while. If it keeps rebooting, going to Google, going to the X, then repeating, then we have a problem.

    I am running the same rom. I let it go for about 20 minutes before I pulled the battery. Put battery back in and it booted up in about 5 minutes. I cleared caches on the second try. I did not clear anything before I flashed. I think that is where I messed up. After that I have had no problems. I don't have the best battery life, but I have crazy screen on time. I think it is just the way I use my phone.

    No rebooting, just taking greater than 20 minutes.

    I mean like this...

    "I went into Rom Manager, tapped to download it, the box that popped up said ____, I did _____, and then I saw ____."

    Here's what I want you to do. Did you make a backup before flashing it? Do you have a backup on your phone?

    I did do a back-up. That's all I can concretely say. I don't recall the exact steps I took installing the ROM.

    Pull the battery, turn the phone off.

    Hold down volume UP, volume DOWN, and power simultaneously. Let it reboot into recovery.

    Let me know when you're there .

    Now, do your wipes. Wipe data, cache, dalvik, and then go to mounts and system and format system.

    Then, go to backups/restore and find your backup and then restore it. If it's not there (or if you want to try again), we'll install the rom manually.

    You may want to wait if that's the case. This may take longer than 5 minutes.

    Yes, it's restoring from the backup I made for it today. Will I have to redo the Vicious JB ROM download?

    No. I want the backup to be restored so I know exactly what you're playing with. Go to your meeting after the backup restores (reboot it) and then we can walk you through the manual installation.

    Don't use ROM Manager unless you're doubley sure about each and everything. It's weird, but doing it manually is much, much more comforting .

    Sounds good. I just bought it. Hate to have wasted the $$$ on it if I can safely install JB on it.

    It's great to learn from, but in the end nothing beats manual installation.

    I'll keep my eyes out for your return, but here's what you absolutely need to do.

    (1) Make sure that the rom actually downloaded. Get a file explorer type app (Astro, ES File Explorer) and look around. It should be in either the /sdcard/Downloads folder or /sdcard/clockworkmod. Just look around and verify that you have the rom. If you're unsure, download it again or download it manually and place it on your sdcard.

    (2) Once that's taken care of, simply hit "Reboot into Recovery" in ROM Manager. Or...you can power down your phone and get into the bootloader by volume UP + volume DOWN + power, navigating to recovery mode, and pressing power.

    (3) Wipe data/factory reset. Do that like 3 times, just to be certain.

    (4) Wipe cache partition. Again, be certain.

    (5) Go to Advanced => wipe dalvik cache.

    (6) Go back to the main menu, go to mounts/storage, and tape "format system." Do that.

    (7) Go back to the main menu, go to "install zip from SDcard," find the downloaded rom (that you verified earlier) and install that.

    (8) Reboot system and setup your phone. Be patient.

    Hmm... looks like I was a little late replying in your other thread, suggesting that you wait, lol.

    So, while DM is right on... I still suggest you wait. In the least, see if there's an md5 for the ROM and make sure it matches before you flash it. Downloading through your phone/RM can sometimes leave you with incomplete files. If the md5 doesn't match, keep downloading until it does.

    I had to download my first JB port four times before the md5 matched. I suggest you wait flashing JB until source based ROMs are available, but if you must flash a port, just make sure it's a good download... and follow DM's instruction.

    Don't use ROM Manager for something that requires care and consideration like an experimental Jelly Bean port. Once source is released and roms are much more predictable you can use it.

    Until then, the only way I recommend doing this is via manual recovery.

    I have no idea, I do it manually. Manually works. I know it works and plenty of people here know it works. It assures you do it correctly and that you know 100% what's going on at all times. ROM Manager doesn't; it's great for opening the doors but it's not great for stuff that requires care and attention.

    Jelly Bean does; I've been on all of the ports (well, until the last couple appeared) and have went to hell and back with it. I cannot in my good mind and conscience recommend flashing something like Jelly Bean with ROM Manager. There's too much risk involved and spending the extra minute or two doing it manually pays off tremendously.
