    First off, be calm. You aren't bricked. There still has not been one case of a phone being bricked that's been confirmed.

    Boot into recovery mode(hold x then hit power) and go back to stock. Sounds like the kernel isn't playing well with the build. Then you can try it over again. You are fine..just an install gone bad.

    if you're stuck in a boot loop pull the battery.

    Boot into recovery and install a backup (which I hope you have).

    I don't think Chevy's kernels work with current Cyanogen builds. It probably would have been better to ask that question before attempting the install.

    Remember - if you get the "M" logo, you're not bricked!

    Same thing happened to me.

    Chevy kernels won't work with Cyanogen. Thankfully, I did a backup before I made that mistake, so I just booted into recovery and I was back in business.

    P3Droid & Bekit kernels work with Cyanogen, so DL them from ROM Managerdancedroid

    heh heh....good luck.

    I'm not the brightest bulb in the socket around here but I know that if you can get a phone to turn on, it's not bricked.

    I don't believe I've ever seen anybody with a bricked phone yet.

    Lot's of people are tired of seeing it, but just as sure as there will be another thread about the battery, you will see the "Bricked" word come up.

    Not much you can do about it. Grin and bear it.

    I completely understand that, but just like you said grin and bear it. Just politely point the op of these threads to the proper terms to use. Which the mods do a great job of. I just dont like seeing people get bent out of shape for something the op might not be aware of.
