    It looks like your friend of a friend has RSD Lite working correctly because your friend of a friend is flashing all these various files.

    It sounds like your friend of a friend still wants to root their phone. Can you ask your friend to ask his friend which rom he wants on his phone?

    If the phone is not booting up there is a good chance your friend of a friend's phone has a low battery and your friend of a friend should put it on the wall charger until it will boot up.

    To get back to stock:

    Use RSD Lite flash the stock 2.01 sbf file

    Then use RSD lite to flash the SPRecovery sbf file before the phone updates to android 2.2 (if it does that's ok, your friend's friend still can flash sprecovery at that point)

    Next you want to tell your friend to tell his friend to to make a backup of his phone via SPRecovery's Advanced Nandroid backup feature.

    And finally, your friend's friend can flash the rom he wants.

    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.

    Been a long day, I'm getting punchy.

    One of 2 things is occurring. The battery is low, or something went wrong with the flash to the rom. I'd recommend the first link in my signature and follow those steps if the phone will boot. Use the Froyo rom. Wipe cache/data a couple of times before applying the rom. No wipe of data/cache and funky things happen when moving from one rom type to another.

    the friend of the friend is the one that screwed it up. i helped him flash sprecovery and that works great. now we tried 2.1 root by update.zip and it went into a boot animation recycle. His friend put him back to 2.0.1 unroot/root (basically its like a jacked up ruined 2.0.1) when my friend was at 2.1+1 unroot. So we flashed stock 2.0.1 again but then after that after the boot animation ends it freezes so we have to do a battery pull
