Urgent help needed with 2.3 upgrade

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi,

I tried upgrading from 2.2 to 2.3 using the recovery method. The upgrade installed, but now when I switch the phone on, it gets to the Cyanogen mod7 icon with the arrow that circles round the droid, but it goes no further. The phone gets stuck at this point and goes no further. I have tried other upgrades ie 1.8, 1.7, 1.6 at the suggestion of other more knowledgeable people with no change. Any help with what I can do now will be very appreciated. By the way, I have lost my backup file as well somehow.

Many thanks

Ian

Ian , you could try doing a fastboot -w :D

Boot the phone into fastboot and use the fastboot.exe or .bat (cant remember) and use the command -w to wipe user data , it's the only way im afraid

Hi Jamie, thanks for the reply, what would that actually do for my phone once I do that?

Hey , sorry for the late reply - it will clear all userdata because android versions 'userdata' isn't compatable backwards or forwards - you will loose all data though , but it is the only way to do it :D
