Default Intercept freezes at virgin mobile screen and won't factory reset

Ok, I was looking into custom roms and I downloaded one. I was trying to get into recovery but I accidentally went to the screen that says downloading... DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET. this didn't do anything and so I pulled the battery and restarted. Now the phone goes to the virgin mobile bootup and just vibrates once, then twice again and hangs.

i have tried to factory reset and clearing the cache and both don't do anything. The factory reset option goes back to the recovery list and when I select reboot it just freezes at the vm startup.

My phone is on 2.2 and is rooted and had a custom boot screen. i tried to update with update.zip and it starts and then gives me a status 7 error and aborts the update install. Is there anyway to factory reset or reinstall the stock rom? I was on the stock rom and I hadn't changed anything when I had go to the downloading screen by pressing volume down, camera, and power.

btw I never had used the sprintrom and I never changed the baseband

please help a guy out!

Try booting into recovery, clearing dalvik cache/cache, reflashing the stock rom, and rebooting to system.

did you wipe the dalvik cahe and regular cache first. I haven't tried a new rom yet but from what I understand that step is crucial. my intercept is rooted using the intercept root apk it also comes with cm01 recovery. it was super easy and worked extremely well. I am still looking for the rom I want to use bu when I hear stories like this it kinda worries me .
