    Hi. I am new to rooting a phone , but after a week of hesitation I decided to root it after seeing UD theme. I followed directions from "Complete How-To on How to Mod Your Phone (BB 2.1 ROM, O/C, MM, Boot Animation, etc" and rooted and installed UD 10 successfully with one try. I was so happy...
    however, I began to have problems on direction number 45, which was about overclocking kernels. 2 links in Optional Kernels did not work, so I decided to go to: UPDATE] New Kernels - Low Voltage + Medium Voltage - 3/25/2010
    Over there I downloaded 5-slot Low Voltage 1.0Ghz (125/250/550/800/1000) OR 1.2Ghz (125/250/550/800/1200) I forget. After downloaded the kernel files I went on with the instruction:
    49. Choose allow update.zip installation. (completed)
    50. Choose Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated). Mine did not say DEPRECATED but i still installed the Update.zip on sdcard.
    51. Reboot the phone. When phone rebooted: several errors messages kept coming out. one of them was about VOICE and i forget other ones. I pulled the battery and rebooted my phone, same error message. I decided to recover by pressing power button and x button, but it said there was no file on the Nandroid( or some other folder i was instructed to save backup). so I decided to do wipe data/factory reset. it completed successfully. however after factory reset, I could only see motorola logo when i turn on the phone. Some said low battery might cause that to happen, so I charged my phone for 12 hours.
    After that my phone would not turn on! It doesnt matter how long i press it. It simply would not turn on. But when I plug my charger, it shows that Motorola logo. It only disappears when i pull the battery. Please help me to solve this problem. Thank you

    Try reloading a solid backup from recovery, and use the charger to turn your phone on.

    Now you can live without fear of bricking - Android Forums

    Only fix I can think of, restores to factory 2.0.1 and then you can go back to doing what you would do, if it fails, bring it back to verizon, say "I went to bed, and when I woke up the phone wouldn't turn on" they give you a new phone, win win.
