    Did you create a nandroid backup at any point before attempting to apply the theme?

    If so, you should be able to boot into recovery and restore to that backup.

    You're not bricked.

    +1 to what jonny said. if you didnt make a nandroid backup then you'll just have to boot into recovery and flash a brand new rom :)

    Ok calm down
    Remove your battery and put it back in to stop the animation, then hold x and power button
    Using volume buttons as scroll and camera as trigger:
    In the menu wipe cache and data, then go to backup/restore
    Click advanced nandroid restore
    Click on choose backup and choose the latest backup you had
    Click on all options to make them all have a star (*)
    Click on restore
    That will take a while once its finished tap the power button until you come back to the regular recovery screen then click on reboot
    If that doesn't work you might have to use .sbf
    Edit: or you might have to install a different rom as he said^

    Actually, not that I know of but it isn't too dangerous there is always a way to fix it if you can at least get the m logo by reflashing the entire phone with a .sbf file, fortunately you didn't have to go there

    download Rom manager from the market its free. From there you flash clockwork mod and then click download rom in rom manager. If you have the free version it gives you the option for several cyanogen roms which are very good. If you get the paid version you can access all the roms. You download your choice or rom and fyi, try to do this while on wifi cause the files can be quite big. Then you select make a back up and wipe data/cache when prompted and the rom does the rest :)
