    Does your screen at the bootloader show s/off on top? What did the rooting app do? malfunction, never finish or what?

    Reload revolutionary again like you never did it. It failed to load the recovery portion. I had the same thing happen to a thunderbolt last week. You'll get a "already s-off, what are you trying to do?" Message....keep loading

    You don't have to run the program again.

    Download the PC36IMG.zip from the site and put it on the root of your sd card. Turn off fast boot and then power off your phone. Hold Volume Down + Power until your bootloader screen pops up. Let it scan and when it ask if you want to update select yes and when it says if you want to reboot select no and then go into your recovery. Install your superuser.

    Once superuser is installed you can use rom manager if you want clockworkmod. I prefer Amon but it's up to you

    The easy way is why he's here in the first place because the tutorial didn't each him what a recovery is, how you flash it, and how you access it. Learning to access the bootloader and recovery will help him in the long run.

    Wasn't trying to knock your way by any means. Going through the bootloader is simple plus it helps teach him a little more.

    Your phone doesn't boot? You said you were only getting the red explanation point when you were trying to get to recovery. If you pull the battery, put it back in, and only hit the power button to start the phone like normal and get that, yes, you are bricked. Mine did that once, but finally booted through after a few times of trying it. I just kept booting it (while silently cursing myself) while shopping for a new phone on bestbuy.com.

    true that, but he does boot...to a screen with a red exclamation point on it. Does it do that when the battery gets low, too?

    Doesn't boot to the OS is very different from not booting at all.

    Turn phone off completely, pull battery, put battery back in. Hold down volume down + power until your phone loads the bootloader. It'll scan for the zip, then install it. From Recovery, after installation, you can flash a new ROM.

    The Samsung Galaxy S II comes out on the 8th I think.

    The Evo3D is already out.

    You can get an OG Evo4G (used) for around $150.00

    I'm thinking you're bricked unless Smoke answers back that a dead battery does that...If it does, and you're not getting an orange charge light, try the cord on a PC to see if maybe the mini-brick charger is bad. If nothing, try a different cord to eliminate the possibility the cord is bad. If that doesn't work, do you have insurance?

    Little confuse now. What won't turn on? Phone itself? There is no way you can get into your bootloader screen? The white screen with androids on skateboards.

    Why I'm confuse is you say it won't turn on, but you are able to get to the stock recovery. If you can get to the stock recovery, you should be able to get to the bootloader.

    Really the only way to brick the device (through normal rooting, ROMing, etc) is with radio flashes, and if you're getting to the screen you're getting, you're not bricked.

    Very much true. That's why I'm not understanding his situation for not getting to the bootloader.

    Tutorial on how to load your bootloader. Depending on how far you've gotten on the process, it could be volume up + power or volume down + power.
