    Seriously scared

    I was trying to revert from 2.1 to 2.0. Went to that DroidRootHelper and the **** didnt work. Went back to RSD lite to do fresh boot to 2.0 so i could just OTA upgrade and be done with it. While in RSD, computer froze in the middle of the revert.

    Now the phone turns on, goes to white screen for a minute or so, turns off...rinse and repeat.

    I dont know what to do...

    Wow sounds like a perfect storm of bad luck here. If you can get to the bootloader should salvagable.

    thank effing god, allah, shiba, zeus.....



    I was able to get to the black screen with the white text on the side by pressing Volume Down (or was it up?) and Camera while pressing power, then connect via RSD and upload my 2.0.1 SBF and then OTA upgrade to 2.1.

    Seriously, if you don't know what you're doing, dont mess with it.

    i did ALOT of reading and alot of YouTube tutorial watching and thought I knew how to do this. Although the concepts for hacking/modding this phone seem simple, executing them is very tedious and sensitive. I'm just going to live without overclocking my phone and all that jazz. Thanks for the input

    Glad you got it sorted.
    Shortly after I found this forum a helpful forumite offered to step me through rooting. I didn't feel that I knew what I was doing (and it was important to me that I understand it myself) so I didn't take him up on it.
    Here's the thing--how do you know when you know what you're doing?

    Wow when i was reading this I thought you would be the first person that had ever bricked a droid (that i know of) no offense, it wasnt your fault that your computer crashed in the middle of using RSD. But good job and im glad it worked out in the end

    You don't. However, you will be the first to know that you think that you know what you are doing. If it turns out that you are wrong, we're here for you and in the end it will all turn out ok

    disclaimer: if your phone ends up wrecked it is totally your fault. If it becomes successfully rooted then whoever's directions you followed takes full credit
    Chris

    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.
