    Reflash your backup that you did before you did this.

    There are many many update.zip's out there. No clue what this one was.


    1) restore from your backup
    2) if there is no known good backup then you can either fix what is broken or flash back to stock and start over.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    in my nandroid folder i have "backupone" and "stockfullbackup" but when i boot into clockwork recovery it says there isnt anything in that folder.

    i did those backups in SPR.


    can you only do backups with SPR or clockwork?

    spr only does spr backups, clockwork only does those made with clockwork.

    Using rom manager you can flash alternative recovery method, which is SPRecovery and then restore one of those other backups. First...backup what you have in case it is better than what you end up with.

    I always name my advanced nandroids something like ss4.1_6-24-10 or more-froyo_6-23-10 so I know when I made the last one and what is in it.

    i think i messed up.... i deleted rom manager, before i read your message, in hopes that it would get rid of clockwork and use SPR instead.

    so i read your message and reinstalled RM, but now when i open it all thats lit up is the recovery options (flash or reboot into recovery)

    You can try posting in that thread. The person who made the file you used should know what it does. He might be able to walk you through undoing it. Good luck, worst case you just roll back, then work your way back to where you were.

    Sprecovery installation is in the 3rd link of my signature. Rom manager should let you install it too. Flash first, then flash alternative recovery method to get SPR up and running.

    I'm assuming "flash" means to install clockwork. My last post suggests doing that and then going back into RM and flashing alternative recovery method to give you back sprecovery. If that won't work then use RSD Lite to flash SPRecovery on your phone to then use SPRecovery to recover one of your backups. Post back, let us know how you make out.
