    What root method did you use? Try booting in to recovery and wiping data and cache. This will restore the phone to an out of the box state.

    That's not a brick, that's a boot loop. Pull the battery, get into recovery, do a factory reset.

    There are no drivers of which you speak on the phone.

    May I suggest you familiarize yourself with some of the language commonly used with the Android operating system? :)

    Having got that part out of the way, what are you trying to root and what method did you use?

    Assuming those 34 posts of yours were from asking questions, if your not going to atleast try to help someone, please don't post. Everyone has been in his shoes and people were there for us, and weren't complete jerks about it.

    If your not posting help, then don't bother posting at all unless you have advice or a wish of luck to the original poster.

    Just follow the instructions above man, your in good hands with these guys! You should be up and running in no time!

    Use the a/c charger to charge it if the usb wont. I've had mine go dead on the usb. The only thing that could give it life was the a/c charger, unlike some. Let us know how it goes.

    Agreed, anyways for coverage: If your phone can go to the M logo (in your case), it is not bricked. It is a boot loop.

    Leave it on the wall charger overnight, at the very least for 2 hours and follow FBM's instructions to begin with.

    Assumed wrong but still I was a noob too but that was a while ago.sorry if you guys got mad for not offering support but I was not trying to poke fun at him. Maybe it didn't seem like it but I wasn't.
    I'm just somewhat new to this forum. But I have been following this site for a few months now and really like the work that has been put in to helping people and this is where I go for rom updates because android forums be slackin all the time with that and people keep posting new threads about the exact same situation which gets annoying after a while.

    Sometimes words written/typed when read seem harsh and condescending than they do when spoken with a smile and a friendly tap on the shoulder. In todays world of text message we all need to remember it. I find in my dealing with life my user name should be " Mc Goof " Your last post shows you'll do well.

    There's a reason I use so many :) and :D and ;) and [censored] in my posts -- emotion and intent don't always translate into bare words on a cathode ray or LCD (or AMOLED) screen. :)

    Years of internet chats with people misunderstanding me have taken their toll. I talk like a 12 year-old. ;)

    Anyway, back on topic now that we're all friends again. :D
