    I have no idea what I'm doing but I screwed up my phone so ill tell you exactly what I did. I rooted my phone with revolutionary. I worked great. I downloaded the bamf 1.0.9 file only, from their forum. I did not unzip. Placed it on the sd card. Turned my phone off. Held volume and power to get to hboot. Went to recovery. Install zip from sd. Picked the 1.0.9 file. Rebooted. My phone now shows the HTC logo on boot, then goes to the thunder animation, then back to HTC and over and over again. Please help me if you can. Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I have been away from home for a month and have another month to go. This is my only phone and I need it to talk to my kids so please help if you can. Thanks again.

    As I recall, Bamf 1.09 is an update to 1.08, rather than a standalone ROM. You have to flash 1.08 first then flash 1.09. If you only flashed 1.09 then that's why your phone doesn't work. All that should have been pretty clear from the post on the Team Bamf forums.

    Good luck.

    Boot into recovery and flash your nandriod. Then install 1.0.8 then patch with 1.0.9

    I hope you made a back up of your ROM when you rooted the phone. The backup should be in your CWM (Clockwork Mod Recovery) Boot into recovery and go to backup and restore and pick one of your backups and reload it. Then load .8 and patch .9

    I did not. I followed a youtube tutorial and I just watched it again to be sure but there was nothing about a backup. I also went into the backup and restore section and it was empty.

    No offense taken. If that's what I did then I did it. I should have done the research but I was told by a classmate it was easy and just follow this video so I did. I would love to get it working again obviously but If I broke it then I guess its just a lesson learned. All this to get rid of all those stupid programs they put on there that run constantly. sigh.....

    can you boot into the boot loader?
    EDIT if you looked for the restore then you can get into the bootloader. Just load your SD card into the computer and download Forever 1.0.8 put it on your SD card then put it back into your phone. Wipe as you did before flashing 1.0.9 and then load 1.0.8 then reload 1.0.9 and reboot

    Did you get it working op? I don't think you're bricked. It takes a lot to brick.

    Try turning it off pulling the Battery SD card and SIM card for 5 min and put them back in and reboot
    What radio are you running?

    How long have you had your TBolt? It's possible that your phone has an older radio version that does not work with your ROM. Check Settings/About Phone and see what it says about baseband version.

    I have not flashed a radio so I am not sure. Do I need to flash a certain radio to work with the bamf?

    You may need to flash a new radio depending on how long you've had your phone and what version of the stock software you were running when you rooted. Check on your phone and let us know.

    I got it when they came out but it has never updated. I was on software version 1.13.whatever before todays attempt. Under settings it says baseband version unknown.

    You definitely need to flash a new radio. When it says baseband unknown that means the radio is not compatible with your ROM. From what you describe, your phone's radios are not compatible with a GB ROM like Bamf Forever.

    Let me see if I can find that thread with the radio files . . .

    ok you need to flash a radio. get the radio from here Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! and download the radio (both radios are in this download) Flash this radio and you should be go to go
    EDIT don't forget to move or rename the pg05imgzip after loading the radio
    Also when you download it the Md5 is CB2ABFCBF83F1680AFB7178558AFB6D0 if you check that
