    Did I brick my phone?
    It won't turn on, it isn't holding a charge, if the battery is out of the phone but the charger is in, it'll turn on (on the rare occasion the charger seems to work).

    I think I did, but I wouldn't have done anything to cause it (I think)
    The last couple of things I did before this all started:

    Downloaded a ROM, extracted the files into a folder I made on my own, then I placed it into my nandroid folder.

    I tried to change my phone to that ROM, but got a "Status 25" error?

    So, I figured I should just reboot my phone and I did.

    And now it's just been messed up. =/

    Help is appreciated, and I HOPE this is in the right section!

    Thanks guys.

    next time you definitely want to read a flashing guide. You don't flash a rom via nandroid, you restore backups with it. When you download a rom you don't unzip it, you flash it (still zipped up) via recovery

    I did what this guy did in his post there. That should probably explain things better on what I did.

    Can you get into the bootloader? You may need to use rsd lite.
