    Is my phone bricked? Help

    MAJOR PROBLEM. i was hiking today, and i used my droids gps to get to the location, took some pictures, and put my phone back in my pocket. My phone had like 20 percent battery life left on it when i looked at it last. I then took it out of my pocket and it was just sitting at the "M" , as if i had turned it off and then back on. I put it in the car and connected it to the charger. Well, when i turn it on, it is stuck at the M . It wont go past there. Is my phone bricked, and what can i do to fix it or get it working properly.

    stock or rooted?

    Try booting into recovery: Turn off your phone > open the slider > hold the X key while turning on the power.

    From there you should return it to either A) a backup or B) factory reset

    Let it charge for a long time, car chargers don't put out as much juice as an AC charger.

    im rooted, and i went into recovery, but if i do a factory reset, what exactly will happen? Will all my apps be gone? will i still be rooted? will all my files be deleted?

    If you factory reset then you will half to reinstall your apps, unless you backed them up before hand with a program like titanium backup? If you did, then its not a problem, you'll have all your apps backed up to your SD card; if not then you'll have to reinstall and configure all your apps...go to market, hit the menu key, go to downloads they should be listed there.
    First and foremost though, if your rooted, then you definitely have backups. Go to manage/restore backups and reinstall the closest dated stable backup that you have. Even if its old, a working phone that you have to reconfigure beats a tricked out phone that wont start.

    Rule #1 when dealing with technology of any kind: backup, backup, backup, then backup your backups... lol
