*PIC* Mystery passcode screen as my phone boots.... ANYBODY?

Ok so yesturday, I was flashing my phone and got stuck in bootloader. It gave me an error but I couldn't read it b/c half of it was covered by the Olinex info. I ended up reflashing SSPL on it to repair it. So, this morning while i was getting ready for school I noticed that the phone wasn't on like I had left it last night. I booted it and got this unusual passcode screen during startup. This isn't the typical windows passcode screen to unlock the phone. This one is different. It only takes up about 1/2 - 2/3 the screen. Its black, and has a green enter button. WTH is it? I'm at school right now, but when I get home later, I will take a picture of it and upload it so you can see what I'm talking about. I don't want to mess with it until I know what it is. Someone PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Have you tried a hard reset? Maybe run Task29 and then reflash your rom.

Re: Unusual passcode screen as my phone boots

Ok, I'm home from school now. However, when I looked at the phone it was off. That's WEIRD b/c I left it on, at that screen, sync'd to my pc. I attempted to boot it again, several times, and it acted as if the battery was dead. It wouldn't go past the initial boot splash. Now that it has charged with the power off for a few mins. it boots up like normal. BUT that passcode screen didn't appear again.

No, I haven't done a hard reset b/c I still have the stock rom on the NAND. Before I do that, I need to remove Olinex 1.00 HSPL. I was flashing Radio's last night. PLUS, if this has any relation to anything other than the ROM itself (which it shouldn't), b/c I haven't tampered with the ROM settings/registry/etc. Task29 wouldn't be of much use. All it does is wipes the NAND. I appreciate your suggestion, and do plan on doing that, AFTER I figure out WTH that screen was and what it's for.

I agree lol.

Since it's not appearing anymore, I'm going to see if I can simulate whatever I did last night b/c I really wanna know about that screen. I've tinkered with PPC's for a few years now, and have owned a TP2 for the last year and NOT ONCE have I ever seen anything like this. I'm not worried about brick'n it b/c its covered by insurance, ANND I can always JTAG it to unbrick it.

Re: Unusual passcode screen as my phone boots

Update on this mysterious passcode screen:

I've tried to simulate the same processes and flashes that I was initially doing the other night and have yet to see this MYSTERIOUS passcode screen. One thing that I forgot to mention is that I did attempt to put in a passcode only once when I first saw it. The passcode that I put in was 0000, but it didn't seem to accept it. What is ironic is that, while I was looking over various info using CDMA Workshop, QPST, and QXDM, I noticed that the LOCK CODE is 0000. Could it be that somehow, I acidently stumbled across a SECURITY LOCK screen? I'm not sure yet, but I'm gonna figure this out. Surely, SOMEBODY has seen this passcode screen.

Although that is funny, I'm definitely not buying it. LOL.

I'll update again after I get a chance to work on it.

Re: Unusual passcode screen as my phone boots

My guess is that it has something to do with olinex due to the incomplete flash, that got bypassed after it was off for awhile. iow, the source of it was Olinex, but you'd never see it again unless you present Olinex with a partially flashed rom.
