I started with Tranquility, then I when to Ultimate Droid, then I tried flashing APEX 1.4 but now I'm stuck with the APEX logo and get error after too long it say force close or wait. Tried Holding power home key till triangle then search button, It gives four options - reboot, apply sd card, wipe/data factory reset, and wipe cache partition - I've tried all four and nothing worked, still stuck on APEX boot logo. Please help reset phone..............

Try pulling battery. Then plug in phone w/o battery to get into clockwork bootstrap. Then restore a good backup. Hopefully this works for you. If not, sbf is an option. I've been there before, but didn't know of the clockwork trick. I'm glad to have all sbf needs ready in waiting, just in case.

That error is a known bug with apex, just hit wait then hit the power button then reboot

From the X

Yup what 1kds said will work. Did you install the latest 1.4.1 apex?

It was an issue with versions before 1.4.1 which is why I asked. I haven't had an issue with the system not responding when I was on apex.

Good stuff. I'm going to make it a point to read "bricked" or "bootlooped" or "problem" threads.. Can learn a good bit in these I think from the "masters". LOL

I finally got it to go through from the wipe data and factory reset screen and it opened up into APEX, thanks guys. Now I'm gonna try Rummy RX - cross my fingers. Here goes.

rummRX is an unsupported ROM. He does Liberty now.
