    I wanted to go back to stock and someone suggested dmupdater. I downloaded it and ran it. Now my phone will turn on but cuts back off when it gets to the eye. I no longer have sprecovery. Any help would be awesome.

    Its called a bootloop, and you should still have SPRecovery installed. Hold X when you power on the phone, and do an advanced nandroid restore, and restore to your previous state.

    And if that doesnt work you can restore with the sbf. You arent even close to bricked. Dont sweat it.

    I wish it were bootloop. It isn't looping. It just turns off and will not try to come back on until I take the battery out and put it back in. I only have stock recovery

    before you do sbf, try putting battery in hold x while you power on. You should be able to restore from back up.

    i only have stock system recovery. My options are: reboot system now, apply sdcard:update.zip, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition

    So you havent actually run the updater all the way through. It's up to you to decide how to proceed.

    I have a copy of the virgin oem rom on my sdcard. Could I just rename it update.zip and select apply sdcard:update.zip in recovery mode?
