Like did y'all have baseband71
we were using rendeiro's cm6 port with 2.2. Followed your instructions as best I could, it seemed to work well. Roms installed on both phones, and then i took battery out and flashed the baseband and kernel ftf. worked well. Then I went back into xrecovery and installed the gingervillain update and rebooted and it was fine. But then.....---this is a long story, I apologize!---
I did some things that may have produced the errors, but might also just be coincidental. On my phone I wanted to try out an app called "AnReboot" which was really just a shortcut to rebooting--i.e. just press the app, then select reboot system or reboot into recovery (instead of long-pressing the power button, selecting reboot, then selecting which type of reboot). Note that I did restore this and all apps with data (instead of just restoring the apps alone, silly me :-( ). So when I rebooted with this AnReboot, that's when I got the bootloop. In a panic I reflashed the old generic eclair rom. Have been able to root since then, but for some reason xrecovery just won't install, no matter how many times i install different versions of busybox. Anyway, I figured, oh well i'll just deal with the eclair rom for now and make do.
Then my wife was complaining on her phone about the apps force closing too much. So then I remembered reading that I should have only restored the apps, and not the apps + data, because that might contribute to apps having to be force closed so often. So I decided to reinstall the rom clean again. Wiped all the data and caches as usual. Reinstalled rom, but figured I didn't have to reflash the baseband and kernel? anyway, that seemed to work, and i went on to install the update, and accidentally installed it twice. Then when I rebooted, i got stuck in a bootloop again. I figured that it might have been my fault again, so i went back into xrecovery and installed everything clean again, correctly this time. Less force close issues, but I still get the bootloop issues if i reboot her phone or turn it off. Long story short i tried to install another rom and that failed, so i guess i'll be flashing eclair back on her phone too.
So i know theres a lot of things that i potentially did wrong, so i was just trying to see if anyone else had these bootloop and force-close issues without having done all the bungling I've done? If you feel like pointing out anything that definitely made me screw it up, that's cool, though i don't expect anyone to.
