I'm sorry if this was discussed here before, but I really couldn't find any thread relating to my specific problem.
I've discovered I can't boot into custom tpt made by the tpt helper. Instead of starting the tpt, it boots into my existing rom.
1. delete the image directory
2. create custom tpt: 10MB cache, 230MB system, 200MB data
3. verify the image folder
5. hold menu+vol-up+power
6. boots into current rom, instead of starting tpt
Using the pre-built tps works OK (the one's that have image.bin). Only the custom makes problems.
I think it worked on my phone in the past, but I'm not really sure anymore. I've tried flashing many different roms over the past two days hoping that it might resolve the issue, but it didn't.
Thanks for any insight.
