backstory: my phone has never been activated. i am uber cheap and use grooveIP etc etc etc but i decided i want to activate my phone so i made a nandroid and loaded the stock rom up just to see if i could still do it. the stock rom works like it should, although i'm still not ready to activate just yet.

so i restore my aokp alpha 10 final nandroid and all goes normally but now it wont boot...i've been staring at the unicorn screen for ten minutes now. i know the first boot is always the longest but this is out of control.

i have a 1gb sd-ext partition.

also...i have a backside IHO nandroid that works fine.

i have also tried to just re-flash a fresh copy of the rom, again all goes normally until i try to boot.


am i missing something here?

im about to restore my ICS nandroid again...then run "fix permissions" and see what happens.

if that doesnt do it i'm gonna try your method.

this is ridiculous tho. i restore nandroids all the time and this has never happened.

on a side note : the activate function in stock rom rarely works correctly. most users end up having to call vm to activate their device. either the activate app just cant connect to proceed or if it does,it borks the last step and gives off an internal error code. and vm uses this same apk on atleast one other android,the intercept and it has the same issues. may have went through all this for something that generally doesn't work to begin with.

so i can just call the 800 number on the VM website and activate my phone that way, regardless of the rom i'm running? all they need is my MEID # right?
