I can click Fastboot and get back to a Reboot option> i'm going to do that and continue going.
Last time I got stuck on Step #6,
They did not match. So I went back to the beginning again....Confirm proper write:
/data/local/busybox md5sum /dev/block/mmcblk0p18
If the output does not match "6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb," try again; if it still doesn’t work, seek help from chat.andirc.net in channel #thunderbolt. DO NOT REBOOT.
