    Hi all,

    im here to warn you about something that could toast your iphone.
    Im talking about hard shutdown of idroid. When you do this you risk( just like your computer ) to corrupt files.

    this happend in my case. I could not restore( error 28 ) and got stuck in a recovery loop, i could not enter irecovery.

    The solution was to reset the entire nand and fill it all up with files

    so guys, be aware to never shutdown your iphone the hard way( home + power )

    this is how you should shutdown android:

    How can I shutdown or reboot my iDroid?

    There's no button assigned to the power menu yet, you can reboot your iDroid by typing su, then reboot in the Terminal Emulator (it requires that you have gained Root Access before) or do factory data reset by goint into setting>sd card & phone storage > factory data reset. There is also the hardware power-off, which is performed by by pressing power+home button until it shuts down (generally it takes 10 seconds). We advise you to avoid the hardware power-off since it could lead to unclean shutdowns breaking the Android images making it slow or even impossible to boot the next time you try to boot iDroid

    Hope this helps for some of you to avoid ALOT of

    Yes, there is a way. Go to settings -> sd card -> hard factory reset.

    it reboots your phone

    IF you have a corrupted nand you should be able to go in dfu mode. Thats possible. you can not restore in itunes(error 28) This is only when you have a corrupted nand.

    You can ALWAYS enter DFU mode, it's read-only in the hardware.. I guess the only way to really screw it up is to somehow, tell it DFU mode doesn't even exist, which I think it's impossible to do unless you're a hacker and want to destroy your phone.
