Crud...did I brick it?
I was playing with my splash screen and boot animation, and I changed the PB31IMG file on my sd card to a custom splash image. I went to hboot (.92 i think) and it gave me the error "no image found" or something like that. I turned off the phone, and tried to boot up into hboot again by holding volume down+power. As soon as I did, my phone vibrated maybe four times and stayed at a black screen. I can't turn the phone on now, or boot into recovery. Has this happened to anyone else? More importantly, does anyone know how to fix it?
Just to add more information (Im really not sure what's relevant), I was running virtuous 2.6 with hydra #1, 2.15 radio. Also, the image error happened before when I was trying out a different splash screen, but that time I deleted the file and re-transfered it my sd card. Hboot was able to recognize it as a splash screen when I rebooted it that time.
One other thing that might be a problem was that I might've been running low on battery. I didn't check, but it was the end of the day and I'm usually almost dead by the time I charge it again.
The screen I was trying to use this time was from
[SPLASH]White on Black Incredible Splash Screen (done) - xda-developers
and I'm fairly sure I didn't get a corrupt file.
