Just for more information on this issue.
I downloaded the ROM MANAGER this morning. I fiddled with it, but did not select from the first link, which type of carrier or phone (I can't remember what it exactly asked of me) I had.
None of what was listed looked like anything familiar to me. So, like an idiot, I just picked one. Something then downloaded in my phone.
After that I closed the app and began downloading GO LAUNCHER. I then rebooted and was HARD BRICKED!
