    Hey everyone, last night I tried rooting my phone using unrevoked and everything was working fine until I tried using Hydra's kernel. Now my phone is stuck in a boot loop. It will just show the HTC green and white screen and then it goes to the verizon screen and then starts again with the HTC screen. Please help me fix this.

    Get the king #1 BFS kernel. Boot into recovery mount sd storage. Once it pops up copy it over to your SD card. Unmount sd storage. Flash the kernel, be happy.

    I've tried other Hydra kernels and one from King. Still same thing. I put the new zip on my memory card and go to recovery and once I'm done it's still the same loop.

    Tried all of these and same thing

    Did you try the stock hydra :

    Hydra Kernels - Stock Speed Undervolted Kernels

    If that doesnt work you will have to do a nandroid restore and you will be back to rom stock

    the first question would be did you do a nandroid back up...if you did then hboot(power vol down)->recovery->nandroid->restore->you should have a list of dates to choose from, pick the newest

    Yes i did look in there and there is nothing. I am running the stock rom. All I did was use unrevoked to root and tried installing a kernel from hydra and that's when the boot loop started.

    last resort is always to undo root...not sure what you will lose since you did not use nandroid or titanium back up but your phone will work,

    scroll to the bottom of this like and FOLLOW instructions to undo root...then follow his instructions (they are very good for beginners) to root again or anything else you want to do

    Howto: Root the HTC Droid Incredible - Technology - Jonamerica.com

    you are probably getting boot loop B/C you are putting a froyo kernel on an eclair rom w/ a stock 1.xx radio

    I know, I'm trying other forums to see if there is anyone who had the same issue as me. What I do is that if I get stuck in a boot loop or a freeze I have to do a battery pull. I am using my brother's Eris to put the zip files on my SD card because because my phone will not connect, and then once I'm done copying and pasting the zip, I put the SD card back in my phone. Then I hold down Vol down and power key. Everything was fine when I rooted with unrevoked, it was until I tried installing the Hydra kernel that everything went haywire. I never installed a custom rom or anything like that.

    quick questions, did you try the kernel from the link I posted from the support tab? or the kernel tab?
    08-27-2010 09:47 PM
  22. Wicked96ta's Avatar
    Yes I tried all the ones you posted or suggested. The stock one froze at the first boot screen. All the other kernels would just boot loop.
