Boot failure

I am quite nervous. My stock Sprint Touch Pro currently refuses to boot past the first TouchPro screen after a soft reset when SPB Shell crashed. Is there nothing I can do that is not a hard reset?

Re: Boot failure

Unfortunately, if you cannot get it to startup, it looks like a hard reset is in store for you. Sorry, hopefully you have a good, current backup.

Re: Boot failure

Thank you for the response. I will start proceedings now to kill my phone. (SAD!)

Oh well, I guess I'll take this opportunity to try a new rom or two.

Re: Boot failure

TP can act weird at times, I will stay stubborn with it a bit as trying taking the battery out for few min, putting it back, plugging it to a charger or USB and see what you get, trying soft reset couple times....you may get lucky man

Re: Boot failure

This happened to me as well. I wound up using it as an excuse to flash the new Mighty ROM 6.5. It worked fine in the morning and then at work I had to reset it, but it wouldn't go past the boot screen. As long as you have your data backed up somewhere, either online with MyPhone or a storage card, hard resets don't have to be that aggravating.

Re: Boot failure

Ok, crap. I hard reset, it seemed to install fine, but the reboot after the phone finished customizations, it is once again trapped at the initial Touch Pro Screen! Argh!

Re: Boot failure

Try reflashing to a custom rom or the stock Sprint rom. If you need a link to the latest stock Sprint TP rom, let me know.

Re: Boot failure

Stock rom links for cdma Touch PRO
At the bottom under Sprint there is an Updated version listed, is that the updated rom you are offering? Can I install it on a phone that will not boot? Such as using the SD Card as described here:
How To Flash Your Touch Pro

But it says I should unlock it first, is that not necessary to install the stock rom above?

Yes, that version will work fine and yes you can install it on a TP that won't boot via the SD card option.

You do not need to unlock the phone for official Sprint roms, only custom roms.

Good luck!

Re: Boot failure

you can force the phone into bootloader mode as well in order to flash the phone that won't boot correctly. I believe the button combination is power and volume down. This is what I did as I don't have a SD card reader at work.

The ROM installer on your PC will automatically detect your phone is in bootloader mode and proceed to dump the ROM image onto your phone.
