firmware encountered an error
I tried to root my phone using the guide on rootz wiki entitled "[KERNEL] [GUIDE] Root Your Stratosphere! :-)"
I got up to flashing my phone, but I got a weird interaction:
user$ --kernel root-zImage

ERROR: Failed to receive response!
SO the root failed, I assume. Now it keeps saying that the "firmware encountered an error" instead of turning on. Is my phone bricked? Can I fix this?
