    Default Think I BRICKED my phone! ADB Help please

    I am very new to ADB, and think while trying to recover my OV bricked it with ADB.

    I used Rom Manager to flash a IHO rom. I know, shouldn't have done that. I tried to restore the phone using this thread here. When I tried to run the mount command, I would get an error. so I tried without the mount commands and now I can't even get into a shell. It says "-exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2)"

    I know I'm a dumbass, so make fun of me as much as you can, but can I restore this phone?

    ADB devices shows the phone in recovery, but I cannot push, pull, or get into a shell.

    Because when I boot the phone, the screen is blank. I've tried to use Android Screencast but it won't work.

    Adb states the device as in recovery?

    Yes, ADB devices command returns the serial number with "recovery" next to it

    I decided after many hours now to just replace the phone. My 150 buck mistake of not reading before jumping.

    But, if anyone has any ideas, please share for the next guy.

    Advice to the next bricker: hindsight is 20/20, flash a recovery first, backup the whole freakin thing second (in recovery), flash you rom last (from recovery). I don't know much about adb, but I've never had to use it

    You should ask for help in the m section of the forums. The v and m are similar but not the same and different methods are used for unbricking
