    Ok, I decided to wipe my phone before swapping with my wife for the night (just to be safe), somehow I got stuck in recovery boot loop hell. I'm running ThundeROM 1.3 RA-thunderc-1.1.0-GNM for my recovery. Anyone have a clue what to do?

    Can you get to the full recovery screen where it says factory restore and flash .zip if you can get there what you could do is get to that recovery menu click the factory reset option the go to wipe then wipe your dalvki or what ever way you spell it and wipe the cache then go to your usb toggle and connect your phone then block the usb toggle it will mount your sdcard and then go to your pc and download a fresh downloaded thunde rom v1.3.zip put it on the root of your sdcard go to flash .zip and flash the new fresh rom then click reboot now then you should be on your way if anything comes up let me know and I could see what I could do cuz my phone at one time couldn't get past the sprint load screen and someone helped me so ill do the same for someone else ;-)

    Ahh ya thats tough but on the android forums there is a newer updated recovery I want you to flash it gives you the ability to wipe the system witch probbly by now is one of the probblems your having like me and zefie did and wipe that and everything else like you said if you could adb shell the use the regular commands to push the new updated amon ra v1.2 recovery image then wipe the system or data and It will wipe the corupted files you mignt have im pretty sure you did a nandroid before you started flashing roms one you get the zefid rom up and running you can just flash the stock nandroid backups you did and be all good

    Completely fixed by using Zefie's instructions and nandroid backup. Now to get the wife's Epic 4G restored to stock so I can bring it in tomorrow.

    Lol great I used that to get my phone up and running at least then I was getting so deap imto hooking up my phome and I talked a freind into upgrading his blackberry curve to a great optimus s and say his radio was different so I got mad and had to use the bone stock v8 to upgrade to v9 with radio steps and now my baby is running smoother then ever but you could use this really handy dandy tool called odin to factory restore that puppy to right out the box settings I just came off the att captivate wagon lol loved that phone so much but I deff didnt love my $500 bill every month with a tide down data plan I just didnt have enough money at the time I went a payed for this one and the palm pre I have sitting but I'm going to save up for one but if you look at the xda website theres a program called odin its perfect for making that phone work trust me I had the menu and back button virus when flashing the i9000 roms lol glad everything worked out

    This happened to me as well. I couldn't get anything to write to the phone in recovery (flashable .zips, nandroid backups, a /system adb push). I went to Sprint and the replaced my device for free.

    Ya sure I cant give out the unreleased rom but it was made before the thunde rom so the is better to use and if you dont already have the updated recovery-thunderc-s-RA-1.2-GNM.img go here don't use the old one this one is way better just have to change the name when pushing the image lol but here is the recovery link I'm going to pm you the instructions ok
