Cry I think I bricked my phone?

I have a Garmin-Asus Nuvifone A50. I rooted it with superoneclick and I checked with Root checker lite or something that it was rooted. I downloaded Titanium Backup Pro and I freezed all the apps (without some of the apps i was going to use, like youtube and settings and keyboards) all except them were frozen. My phone froze when loading a youtube video. Rebooted (not by taking the battery out. Pressing the power button down.) And now, when i tried to open it, all i see is the start up logo ("GarminAsus" logo) again and again and again and AGAIN! I don't want to spend money on new phones, as i liked this one very good. Is it possible to fix it, or is it gone for good? dunno if any help, but it's running android OS 2.1

@TheKalle
you may have frozen an important system app .
Can you access any type of recovery from your phone ?
If no ,can you access adb shell ?
If you can access either probably you can boot into phone .

Yes, I know that and no, I can't access any recovery. How do you access adb shell? Dx

You have SuperOneClick right .
Go to the ADB folder in SuperOneClick directory via Command prompt.

then connect your phone to PC
and type adb shell
if
$ signs comes up then your phone is in adb shell .

Well, I uninstalled it. But I can reinstall and try that.

Edit: I'm new to this. Can you tell me what to do in steps. Sorry for the trouble =[

No Problem
Unzip Super One Click preferably in C Drive
something like SOC

there will be an ADB folder in it .
Now go to Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->Command Prompt

you will get a prompt with
Code:
C:\Users\ABC>
Type
Code:
cd C:\SOC\ADB
so the prompt will be

Code:
C:\SOC\ADB>
Now turn on the phone
and connect it to PC

Now type
Code:
adb get-state
You should get output
Code:
device
Now all we need to do is uninstall Titanium backup and its settings
The app name for Ti Backup is
com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.apk
so type in
Code:
adb uninstall com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.apk
or
Code:
adb uninstall com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup-1.apk
or
Code:
adb uninstall com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup-2.apk
It will depend on how much you have updated the app
If that doesnt work then
type adb shell
you will get
$
type

Code:
$su 
#rm /data/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.apk
or
Code:
#rm /data/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup-1.apk
or
Code:
#rm /data/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup-2.apk
if that doesnt work then the things have to get a bit more complicated

It was a little confusing. I didn't even make it to step one. -.-When I type the place for the adb file, I get something that the system couldn't find it or something.

I think booting into recovery and wiping the system/cache would be the best bet. Wouldn't that unfreeze any apps and essentially be a factory reset? I agree that the OP likely froze an important system app.

I don't actually know how freezing works. Wiping cache, or dalvik, is harmless, but please, TheKalle, don't misinterpret what A.Nonymous says as meaning "format system" as that will erase your ROM.

Keep the cmd open
Run superoneclick.exe and press the shell root button
Wait
Now go back to cmd and enter
Adb shell
You will get
#
Now type
#rm /data/app/*
Or
#busybox rm /data/app/*

May I ask if you've tried to access the bootloader? What key combo does one have to press to get there? I can't seem to find that info anywhere. And then finally, what options are available within your bootloader?
