Default Easy to fix a bricked Moment

Well.. i rooted my phone last night and what do you know.. My phone bricked (boot loop) this afternoon randomly.. With the ODIN firmware flash you can easily restore the moment back to factory settings and unbrick the phone (thankfully.. didnt want to get my 3rd moment)

I now do not know if it was the root that caused the boot loop or a program i installed last night called Startup Auditor... I have been reading reports this could cause a boot loop

Rooting, to me, seems way too complicated. I'm not a programmer, and I don't understand the commandline stuff. I would love to have 2.0 right here and right now, but I'll settle for having 1.5 until an official update is rolled out. The shortcomings are tolerable and some are substituted for by Sprint (Sprint Nav in place of Google Maps Nav and Nuance Voice command, for example).

This way...
How to Update the Moment (instructions)

Or just take it to a Sprint store it is still under factory warranty since it is less than a year old. Don't sweat it, it will all work out...

Pull the battery to kill the boot loop (or whatever is hosed up), put the phone into downloading mode and re-flash the stock ROM.
