    So I'm totaly new to this rooting thing, but I don't know what to do now because my phone wont turn on anymore.

    I rooted my phone a couple days ago, and found a cool rom called Sourcery. So I preceded to flash my rom to it(followed the instructions on here to flash to 2.2).

    It said everything went ok and I rebooted the phone, then it sat at the new Sourcery loading screen for about an hour, figuring something was defilently wrong I pulled the battery so I could reboot it.

    After restarting it I let to try to load again just to see what would happen, but after another 15 mins at the Sourcery loading screen I knew it wasn't going to work.

    Pulled the battery again, this time booted into recovery mode by holding down X and went to nandroid and run my latest recovery. This takes a while so I went to sleep.

    I wake up this morning and now my phone wont power on at all...

    So am I screwed or does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are in a loop it will not charge.. you will need to borrow a charger or battery.

    There is a usb charging trick, but it is not for beginners.

    agreed, dead battery. Get another whether you borrow it or buy one, or get the one you have charged outside the phone. Sounds like that's your issue.

    Couldn't he try just plugging in the phone without the battery? Then when the phone request/queries regarding the phone insert it then? He could of course ask another friend with the same phone to swap out batteries... next time keep your phone plugged into the charger while flashing... works for me every time.

    when sbf-ing it requires you have a charged battery.

    There is a way to charge the battery by splicing a usb cord and directly connecting to the battery while in the phone.

    It was an old article I read on Engadget.

    You might look that up and try it too.

    You can always go into Verizon & ask them to charge it.
