    I saw there was a patch for my bugless beat v0.4 and so i downloaded it through rom manager. After downloading it, I didn't click clear data and cache cause i didn't think it was necessary, and now my sdcard is damaged. It won't let me format it, although i can click it. and i can't connect it to the computer, nothing picks it up. Any suggestions? help? did i just brick my phone? oh lawd

    That's not a patch, that's a new ROM. You have to wipe everything 1st. The phone isn't bricked. I'd say wipe the phone, install a backup and then head over to the "Bugless" section and follow the instructions for installing BB 0.5.

    can you get into the bootloader?

    What about if you pull the SD card out and see if you can get into recovery or boot the phone.

    the bootloader is how you rooted the phone... You hold up on the D pad and then hold down the power button. "Up" being up when held horizontally or "to the right" when held vertically.

    Right. As long as you can get in the bootloader you can, as a last resort, SBF your phone back to stock and start over.

    yeah i can boot normally, but the sdcard is the issue. it won't let me format it nor will it let me mount it. it says i need to format it but it won't. and it won't mount at the same time, even when i click mount.

    furbearing.. it's been my observance that when installing BB 0.5 and you don't do it correctly, it has some pretty nice consequences.

    Yeah, some ROMs are like that. I just figured that if the OP can't get into recovery and installed through ROM Manager, then telling ROM Manager to flash SPR/CW, SPR/CW, SPR/CW and then trying to get into recovery would save a lot of panic. If it worked. :)

    Once there install the backup and then do BB 5 or whatever over again. :)

    your fix for this is going to be to mount the SD card to a computer VIA Card Reader and copy the contents of your SD to a folder and then wipe it completely, put the card back in your device and let it boot up, go to settings/sd card and phone storage/select unmount SD card and then choose "format" after the format is done remount the card from within the same menu

    Then you can connect your phone via USB and copy your files back over---just be careful there are some system files the O/S will write on your SD during format don't copy these old files over the new ones

    I personally would wipe the SD card clean and format it. I would then flash the sbf file. Start clean and clear like a new phone. But like say, I'm just of the opinion that when things go wrong, I like to start anew.
