Default What just happened to my Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

Clock was spinning for some time so I did a battery pull. Storm goes to reboot and start but won't restart. It keeps looping through the black/white screen likes its trying to start up. It never makes it to the point where the OS kicks in.

Any idea what happened?

Any idea on how I can fix this? I'm at work right now so I can't connect to my desktop...

...Repulled battery multiple times. Seems that right when it is about to start and the white screen flashes and the reboot starts over.

Wirelessly posted (hope is everything!)

Sounds like os may be corrupted. May need to use JL_CMDER to wipe device and then reload OS

Nothing within the last few days that would have caused it. Just the same basic programs I always run: Viigo, WSJ, etc... Nothing crazy.
