    You cannot brick a Thunderbolt!!!! If you can, then I bricked mine almost 10x's...I was stuck at the HTC screen forever...What I did???? Someone told me to hold down the vol key and power key to get back to clockwork...Didn't work...instead it brought me back to the step 6 process of manually rooting the Thunderbolt...from there I did step 7 again:


    Push SU, busybox, and psneuter.
    adb push psneuter /data/local/
    adb push busybox /data/local/
    adb push su /data/local/
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox
    To gain root:
    adb shell
    /data/local/psneuter
    The following will remount /system and set up SU:
    adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/su /system/xbin/su
    chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su

    Now i'm rooted after bricking my device...i found it on accident but if you ever panic just try it out

    Boot screen is not a brick. When you get a security warning, that's a different story.

    It's not that you did it wrong... I personally think you lost root since you couldn't reboot into CWR so by redoing the root process you fixed it. I was just saying the boot screen is not a brick.

    wipe data and cache, try a backup, use a different rom....

    All can be done by loading into CWR, hold the down vol and power, select bootloader from the menu.

    I did, he just got back to fastboot and didn't do the step to load into CWR,


    Step 6, flashing the PM05img.zip, from the hboot menu,

    There's several options listed there, just have to select "bootloader" and it loads into cwr.

    Also, if you don't delete the .zip from your sd, it will just try to flash that. delete or rename and you're golden.
