So I didnt want to void my warranty, lord knows i can not afford another Droid. Thats why i waterboarded it. i figured they couldn't tell at all if it's dead completely

    So instead of dealing with your device, you opted to commit Insurance fraud?

    It's hard to say what went wrong, but backing up and loading roms take quite a lot out of the battery. It might be that the battery just got too low to complete the rom installation. Perhaps it just needed to be charged for a while, then flashed with rsd lite. Now we'll never know.

    Your phone wasn't really bricked. You could have recovered it will rsd lite and an sbf file. You should've posted here for help before throwing your poor Droid in water.
    you have no idea how much that kills me to think i could have saved her. she is sitting in my truck. this is the longest i've been without her since i got her. she must hate me...

    anyways. would could've happened to it? here is what happened
    i was on the theme forums, and decided to go with the watermark theme, cuz it looks cool as hell. i ended up talking to the developer of the theme himself (through forum thread) and i did as he instructed. i loaded up my rom, went to the download file in it found the theme and clicked to backup. everything looked as if it was working fine went all the way through. went to walk the dog. and when i came back i was not at my home screen. so i thought this was weird. i looke at it, and i can barely see the droid eye, i mean it sort of was pixalating but only pieced of the picture of the eye, just after you see the "M" dis-appear when you reboot the phone. i tried removing the battery 10 times nothing. thats when i did the water thing, and took it to verizon..
    learning lesson for sure. i will definatley be getting it rooted again. what is a good setup to have for a fast phone?

    as soon as i get it i will get easy root...but not sure what i'll set it up with..

    but can ya'll suggest a good setup and where i can get them.

    i may go back to bugless beast v.04 or is that not the best..

    kernel...have no idea how to get one

    theme...there is where i'm afraid to change lol....thats where i got bit..

    anything else other than those 3 things? or does that just about cover it?
