    just boots right back to recovery when trying to install the ROM through the zip :\

    I did not "wipe data/factory reset and did not wipe cache partition, just under mounts / storage i did format /boot, /cache, /data/ and /system.

    I too am going to go to bed with hopes of a new idea tomorrow. And I cannot do the usb thing because when it's in recovery, the only thing I see relating to USB storage is "mount usb storage" and then it tells me it cannot find the specified path.
    Can you be more specific? Does it fully flash the zip, saying install completed, and just reboot you back into recovery? Or does it reboot when you try to install the zip?

    The zip is on this page. Flash it once, reboot, let it sit a minute, reboot back into recovery, flash it again.

    Reboots after a successful install of the ROM, after saying it flashed successfully and needs a reboot. Going to try the stock one now.

    Finding update package
    OPening update Package
    Installing update
    (couple seconds / mins pass)

    Install from sdcard complete.

    Went to reboot system option on the recovery menu (top option iirc), it went back into recovery. Tried installing again, this time from the "install /sdcard/update.zip" option in the recovery menu. Got Install from sdcard complete. Powered off. Turned back on, went back to CWM-based Recovery v4.0.1.5.

    Well so I rebooted twice and still kept going into recovery, so out of curiosity I went to install from .zip and tried the Xionia. Got the CWM nonsense again, recovery crashed, wiping cache etc etc and reboots. Except NOOOOOW when it reboots, it rebooted into the stock ROM. So I was curious if it would stick, so I turned it off. This time, I tried loading by holding the home + vol down + power button.

    But NOOOOOOOW, it's loading into Xionia's...Sort of. I still got "Android system recovery... Do not pull out the battery!!" but now the text is blue, and here's the format of what I see.

    "Android system recovery <3e>

    Android system recovery utility

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partion
    (line break here, then says the android system recovery don't pull out battery nonsense)

    This is progress, no? Xionias and stock rom? Going to apply update again, and try to boot into the stock rom again and see if it fails or not.

    OH MY GOD IT WORKS. IT F***ING WORKS. REBOOTS BACK INTO STOCK, INPUT THE MDN AND MSID AND IT GOT THE 30 MISSED MESSAGES AND IT CAN DO CALLING. IT F***ING WORKS.

    You're a miracle worker, Cole. I truly appreciate the help.

    Too bad she brought home poor grades and cannot use her phone all summer so really I didn't even need to fix it but I was determined and with your help, it works.

    Thank you so so so very much.

    I really didn't do much. I'm glad you got it working.

    Want to pay it forward? List the exact steps you took, and the state your phone was in. There are lots of other threads with your same issue.

    Not like, from square one, maybe starting from when I had you flash the cwm recovery?

    Thanks!
