    So to be clear you installed the drivers and ran the unrevoked.exe?
    Edit:
    As I'm re reading this it sounds like you were just in hboot and intalled the drivers? If so there is nothing in that process that could brick a phone. I'm sure your phone just froze up and the battery pull i recommended below should get ya going again.

    Have you tried a batt pull and rebooting the phone? As far as i know there is nothing in the process can could lead to a bricking.

    You are correct, my phone did boot up. Sorry i just got freaked when it wouldn't respond for a good 10 minutes. Sucked the battery life all the way down to 12% though from a good charge around 80% which is still pretty weird. Thanks for the quick respose

    Hi guys - hope you don't mind if I join in - I'm close to that...

    Ok - I got myself into a world of mess... I HAVE A TOTAL WHITE SCREEN... I rooted using unrevoked3, installed froyo - no problems, then attempted to install the market app through a .zip file that I loaded on the SD card loaded it, and now I get a white screen...

    However, before adding froyo - I was trying to unroot... and it was aborting the app I installed from the "unroot video"... and somehow, I came upon the app to install froyo - did so, etc...I have tried to do some of the things that I know - restart using the down volume and I get the hboot screen and I have tried all of the options in there... but eventually, rebooting, ultimately brings me back to a white screen.

    I'm very very non-technical and have no idea what to do with it next.

    Now I just want to get back to my happy go lucky life of having an android...and a phone that is needed for work.

    Help!

    K. Slow down here. Are you rooted? If so do you have ClockWork recovery still? Can you get to recovery? If you can get to recovery, I would reload the nandroid back up you should have made. If you did not make a back up i would re load the froyo rom fresh and clean again.

    Doug - you are a rockstar... thanks for the info on the recovery and back to the nandroid... not sure how I didn't find this before - and it looks like, it took me back to the very beginning - as though I have never had the phone on... Thanks!

    ok, so thanks for getting me there... I am hoping now that I can totally unroot the phone... as it appears that I still have root (the superuser permissions app is still there).

    So that I don't do the superfreak on the phone again...

    Try pulling the battery and then rebooting. Might be in qualcomm diag mode.
