I was just managing some bookmarks on the Launcher Pro widget, and they weren't deleting.

I thought a reboot might help things so I turned it off. But now it won't boot. I just get the lcd backlight on and nothing else!

What's going on!?

Tried booting with the power supply in? Dunno if this would make much difference but worth a go.

Mine did same earlier, only way I got it back to life was by following instructions to re-install 1.04 from advent site with the alternate power and back thingy and then worked Pauls magic on it again....hope this helps!

Yeah, the power supply is plugged in.

I can get it into the Advent recovery mode, so I could re-install 1.04 then redo MoDaCo Add-On. Will this wreck all my apps?

Bugger.

I wonder whether the Clockworkmod will be effected.

Looks like I may be about to make use of the nandroid back up I did a few days ago.

I just reinstalled clockwork as well, so not sure if it was affected...but like I say there might be an easier way, I just wanted to be back up and running ASAP

Yeah I had to reinstall the ClockWorkMod recovery, and I have now restored to a nandroid backup i ran a few days ago.

I still have a bit of work to do before I get back to where I was.

I'm thinking about doing a nandroid backup at the end of every day, to avoid this.

Would a scheduled titanium backup restore to the same level?

I am not sure what Titanium Backs Up. But I would be surprised if it backed up the MoDaCo Add-On and the Clockworkmod recovery.

I've had the same problem three times and each time had to apply the 1.04 Recovery image and Paul's Rom and then restore Nandroid backup.

Interestingly, since the last time, I have not reinstalled clockworkmod recovery and have not had it happen again since.

were you all using Launcher Pro at the time? Seems like it's happening to a lot of people multiple times!

Just curious because I was about to try Launcher Pro on mine but I haven't tried the clockworks mod yet so maybe I should get that installed & do a backup first

I have had Launcher Pro on mine for about a week and not had this problem. I don't have the ClockworkMod recovery installed either and as abrown601 said the issue has not happened since the last time. And he hasn't reinstalled ClockworkMod recovery then maybe it is that causing the problems and not Launcher Pro? I know it is only one person to go from but it seems possible?

I have Launcher Pro on mine and have not had the problem since the last restore without Clockworkmod Recovery.
Maybe coincidence but will have to see how it goes over the next few days.
My problems also seemed to happen after removing and reinserting SD card

+1 for it not happening after reflashing and not reinstalling ClockworkRecovery (now I've said that though... ;))
