PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

I'm not familiar with that specific phone so this may not work for you, but something that worked for my Nook when it had the same reboot loop was to prepare a fresh CWM bootable SD card with a CM 7.1 stable image stored on it. Reboot to the card, wipe cache and data, reboot, wipe again, reboot and install the OS image. Remove the card and reboot one last time and you should see a robot on a skateboard again.

I only ever had to do that wacky procedure once, and I discovered it by accident when my Nook was stuck in a reboot loop and no one had an easy fix. I have no idea why wiping twice fixed it, but I'm sure that was what did it. Wiping once and installing the OS kept me in the loop; wiping twice did the trick. All I know is the Nook now makes for a great, if highly quirky, cheap tablet with CM7.
