    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.
