okay, so earlier today I rooted my phone for the first time and have been trying to read up on stuff all day about rooting, overclocking, and ROMs because I was trying to be careful. But now I'm at a point where I don't think my phone is a "brick" but I cant figure out what to do now. I'll try to make this fast, I can elaborate if you need more info: I had plain old 2.1 non-rooted this morning, never done anything crazy to my phone. so I saw a guide for rooting 2.1 on youtube and so I tried it, but what it actually does is make you revert back to 2.0.1 and then root it, so i did that and everything worked great. Then I downloaded an app for adding custom ROMs and tried to install cyanogenmod and at first it didn't work (phone just stayed on the bootup sequence) but then I booted it in the recovery menu and used the wipe data/factory reset option. That worked great and it actually left the cyanogenmod on the phone (which, btw, is what I THOUGHT 2.1 was supposed to be like). So at this point everything seemed to be working great but I tried downloading the setcpu app to overclock but it said I wasn't rooted (then how do i have a custom rom?). So I tried rerooting and thats where i got into trouble because I didn't use the same process as before, I used the guide in the sticky part of this forum on how to root 2.1. Now when I do a normal boot my phone wants to do a "special activation" where it calls verizon, but then it says it cant do anything at this time. I've already tried a factory reset again, so idk! Where can I go from here? PLEASE HELP!
