Hi everyone,

Firstly let me thank anyone reading this in advance! Secondly let me extra thank anyone who helps me in advance!

I rooted my phone. Then I copied a new boot.img file into './custom_backup/image' directory and now the phone wont boot. It just keeps rebooting. I've looked through this forum but cant seem to find an answer. People with similar problems but not exactly the same.

When I go into the pink screen I cannot see the recovery image folder when I pug the USB from phone to computer.

My phone has android 2.3.5.

I cannot access the clockwork recovery mode (by holding power + vol up) it doesn't work anymore or at all?

I have Ubuntu and Xp on my computer.

When I connect phone to computer (while in the pick screen) ubuntu recognises a huwei device attached but adb does not see it. previously adb would see the device.

However when I let the phone keep rebooting endlessly there are moments when adb sees the phone. I have even opened a shell in adb on the device for a little while. but when I did I could not see any hidden directories or the './custom_backup/image' directory. I tried to push the original boot.img file over but that did not work either!

I am stuck.

If I could see the image directory while phone was in the pink screen I could copy original boot.img.

Any suggestions!
