Bricked.. What to do?
Ok heres the situation.. Earlier on I was having problems with my rom constantly crashing & being all around buggy as hell so I decided to reinstall the rom I was using because I thought a fresh install might fix things up (yes very noobish of me) after I went into recovery and gone thru all the steps into flashing the rom I open up the folder to install the zip and lo an behold, IT'S FUqN AWOL!! WTF??? I must have unknowingly erased it at some point even though I obviously don't recall doing that. I know what you're all thinking "not so slick eh ricky boy".. well to be fair I am going thru an episode of insomnia and it's taken it's toll on my judgement/thinking capabilities. I'm not proud of it but it is what it is. Moving on I just wanna see if there's an easy fix for this as being stuck in recovery/fastboot mode forever is not a very entertaining thought. Also let me clarify right now I do NOT have a backup saved on my SD cuz if I did I wouldn't be stuck in this mess in the first place. If there's anything else you need to know I will do my absolute best to answer in full detail. I must warn you though I am probably the highest pedigree of noob you will ever encounter in your entire life, not kidding.

What recovery are you using? You need to put a new rom on your sdcard and gapps if it's not included in the rom. On some recoveries you can go into mounts and storage and enable usb mass storage. If that doesn't work maybe you have a card reader on your puter?

dont feel bad ricky,i erased my entire sdcard by not paying attention lol,but no you arent bricked,you just need a rom to flash. i connected to phone via pc and used adb to push the rom to sdcard. now i couldn't get the pc to read it as mass storage so thats why i used adb to push,but you may simply be able to just copy it over. either method isnt difficult. best of luck to you :thumbup:

Re: Bricked.. What to do?
Okay got it all figured it out just needed to install the drivers and transfer the rom via usb thing worked like charm I guess I just panicked a little when things didn't go to plan o well s'all better now so I'm happy. BTW I've been using clockwork recovery. I heard clockworkmod was bad for OV but I haven't had a problem with it so far (going on my 4th rom installation). Is it just the clockwork app that's bad? Never really understood that. Well just thought I'd thank y'all for your help & assurance. Who knows one of these days I might be able to lend in some quality answers.. maybe not lol.. But I'm sure I'll grow my wings eventually. Well thanks again.

For the record lots of people use some form of a clockworkmod recovery. Its the clockworkmod app called rom manager that gets people scared.
