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.
[Recovery] [09-Feb-2011] RA-supersonic-v2.3 - xda-developers
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.

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.

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.

no my phone doesnt boot at all!!

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?
