Ok, so I tried to root got to the last step and the the phone rebooted and the Google screen is up. Now I know it is supposed to take a while on that screen but its been over 15 minutes. Is my phone bricked???!!
OP.. The number 1 rule is Don't Panic. This phone is unbrickable for all intents and purposes as long as your not a maniac. If you run into trouble just come to the forums let us know what's up and someone here will help you.
Also, don't go through all the trouble to just to run some boring stock ROM. Flash aokp and see what your phone can do. Follow instructions and you'll be fine. Also see Zero Necks RADIOS thread to update your radios very easily.
