Thanks for the reply Kieran, I found the exact same guide yesterday just after I'd posted this thread. I had to use step 5 because my phone was literally bricked, but, that guide walked me through... Step by step and I understood all of it. Thanks for taking the time and posting the guide on here!
I thought I'd return the favor and get you a guide here http://www.modaco.com/topic/339048-guide-flashing-firmware-to-bladelibra-via-windows/
on how to flash Stock ROM onto your ZTE Blade (I'm assuming that is the phone you have) and I hope this guide helps you my friend.
