    Before I went to Cyanogen I did a backup I believe. Thank you so much for quickly replying. I'm so scared.

    We can definitely help...just boot into recovery and restore your back-up

    What recovery do you have ?

    Pull the battery and when you put it back in and power up do so by holding down the power button and the X key until a recovery screen comes up - tell me if it says clockwork or sirpsychosrecovery

    then just use the volume key to go down to nandroid and push the camera button to select it and then choose the backup and that should fix your problem if not you might have to flash it with a SPRecovery file

    For future reference anytime you apply a theme or ROM make a fresh back-up first :D

    I am glad, too. It's too bad the op started three (that I saw) threads this afternoon for his problem(s) . . . .

    I know, I'm a grump, but it makes it hard to know where to start and where to finish . . . .
