    Ok so heres the situation. I rooted last night, DL LFY and LFY1100 kernel. I installed the kernel and then LFY itself. After trying to reboot it only gets to the custom boot screen and will not launch.

    After 15 minutes I pulled the battery and tried to launch in recovery mode to load my backup. Upon trying to do that it says cannot mount to SD card. I try again and same thing. After failing to mount it goes into the same custom launch screen for LFY but no OS comes up.

    Also when I go into recovery if i wait too long to select and option it automatically kicks back into the endless launch mode.

    Did I brick my phone? PLEASE HELP!

    Rest assured, you aren't bricked. I can give you what I would do, but I am sure those with more experience have a better method.

    Personally, I am a start from scratch person rather than a band aide person, so...
    I would flash the ESD56 followed by SPRecovery. Then apply the FRG01 update, then the FRG22 update.
    Then apply your custom ROM, FOLLOWED by the kernel.

    But that is just me.

    Will it stay connected in the bootloader (not recovery screen)?
    Access by pressing up on D-pad and pwer button for about 5 sedonds while phone is powered down.

    thank god!!!!! success!!!! thank you guys for all your help. Now to prevent me from bu__ fu___ing this up again could you guys give me the correct sequence to go through, properly install UDx8, a kernel capable of overclocking to 8-1.0, and keeping all contacts and apps?

    That would be of great great help.

    Always apply the custom ROM before the kernel.
