    lol sorry let me try to exlpain better. I downloaded the stock 2.2 rom and after it updated the phone froze on the boot animation. I tried pulling the battery out and then getting into recovery to restore a back up and when i hold the x and power button i get the screen with the triangle and exclamation point

    alright sorry to be a pain. I noticed that i have two files still on my computer from when i rooted for the first time. I have sapphire-0.7.0 update and SPR recovery_ese81.sbf. Would be able to use one of these instead of the file in option 5 since the dl is freezing?

    unplug ur phone to boot into the bootloader (if thats what ur trying to do)

    and no dont use the ESE SPR bc if your not on 2.1 to start itll cause more problems
