    I want to go back to stock,I did the 8 reboot thing and after the eight I got on the screen:a new software update is being installed.This will take a few minutes, -then it turned off,I rebooted and it got stuck on the welcome to the future....and it's still showing the android.Waiting to charge it and for instruction.The 8 reboot thread wasn't saying anything about the sd card.I have one inside, should I have taken it out?

    Did you ever install CWR? If so you may need to follow the guide for removing it.

    Have you tried the 8 boots again? That should clear it. If not we might have to walk you through creating a bootable SD and flashing a clean stock image back on there.

    Edit: Also try powering off and then plugging it into the PC with a USB. See if that wakes and boots it. If not power on with it plugged in and see what happens. Maybe it will unstick the stuck.

    I am guessing that is the 1.1 update. Try booting it with the usb cable plugged into the PC and see if that works.

    sounds right, so it is making the usb connection. When you unplug the usb does it start to boot then get stuck?

    Gloria,

    Create a bootable CWR and revert back that way...it sounds like your bootloader got messed up...like it went to low power during some update and it hosed it.

    Follow the instructions in post 1 of the thread in my sig.Its a relatively easy procedure and you should be up and running again in 15-20 minutes. Let us know if you are having problems.

    Yep, I think so too. I know she doesn't want to do that if she doesn't have to so I was trying to think of any other way to possibly get it to boot. Ultimately I think you are going to have to follow Vic's thread though.
