    Welcome, and sounds like you need some help.

    Did your brother get the USB functioning? If so you should be able to turn on USB debugging and root using superoneclick.

    After that you are going to want to install ROM Manager from the market and have it install Clockwork Recovery. This will allow you to boot into a custom recovery partition that you can flash a new ROM from.

    And if you are stuck on the activation, when you are on the first activation screen tap the 4 corners of the screen going clockwise starting from the upper left. That should skip the activation.

    Let us know if you get stuck or have questions about ROMs.

    What happend is that you bought a phone that was already rooted and had a custom rom already installed. Unfortunately, as you might have found out, some custom roms 'break' the "mount USB as storage" function.

    When you plug the phone into your computer, do you see anything in the notification bar? You should see a USB symbol and when you swipe it down you should see in the list "USB Connected". When you select USB Connected, the next screen should have a button that says "Turn on USB Storage".

    And as the above poster said, if you want to bypass google activation, do as posted, touch the four corners of the screen, to bypass the verizon activation, just press the back button. You don't have to root the phone to make it do what you want to do with it. I have some writeups as well.

    good luck
