    I'm an idiot, I did "format boot"

    So, I was having an issue with my Incredible and I thought maybe by hitting "format boot" in the partitions menu that it would fix it. Now the phone wont load. Please help, I'm a moron when it comes to this phone.

    Are you rooted? And when you say the phone won't boot, what exactly is it doing?

    Yes I'm rooted and when I power it on it goes right into the white screen with the three androids at the bottom and the 4 options of FASTBOOT, RECOVERY, CLEAR STORAGE, and SIMLOCK.
