I love FirefoxOS, but clearly I'm a noob playing around where I shouldn't - so please help me!!
I've been using various versions on my Flame phone and have been able to successfully put v1.3, v1.4 and v2.1 on my phone using a Mac, a USB cable and adb via terminal and the shallowflash tool. However, I recently tried to install v2.2 (30-Sep-2014 nightly build) and it seemed to brick my phone - even though the adb terminal said Push was successful, after it rebooted, then the Flame gets hung on the Thundersoft logo forever.
So I removed battery, nothing - still hung on Thundersoft logo.
So I tried the power+volume up+home to get to the menu and I did a factory reset from that menu and then that seemed to work, then reboot still gets hung on Thundersoft logo.
So I searched around and found this page's Troubleshooting: Which showed how to get into fastboot sideload mode: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Developer_phone_guide/Flame
So I did that, and then finally the phone was showing up in terminal when I used "fastboot devices"
So then I found this page: https://hacks.mozilla.org/2013/06/updating-and-tweaking-your-firefox-os-developer-preview-phonegeeksphone/
And followed the steps under "Ok, so I bricked my phone" and in terminal entered these steps in the folder of the base download for Flame_2.0_v180_1
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot flash userdata userdata.img fastboot flash system system.img fastboot reboot
All the steps said [OKAY] so I thought it was all worked, but I borked something because now the Flame not only gets stuck on the Thundersoft logo, but now it repeatedly reboots every 2 secs without touching it once it is on back and forth to the Thundersoft logo.
Can anyone please help me?? At this stage I'd even love to go back to v1.4 - I hope I haven't ruined my Flame phone.
thanks very much for any step by step instructions on how to fix this. :)
