    So i deleted some things i should not have. I used the system dump and renamed it to app and pushed the whole thing to my phone. Now the phone will begin to bootup - get to the eye and bootloop. Is their an update.zip out there that will work? At this point I don't see anyway to access the root because I can't boot up to use adb (right?) PLEASE HELP

    No fix until an .sbf is available to reflash. Same boat here...

    try safe mode?

    Not sure sure if the X has the same thing as the Incredible where sometimes you get adb works in recovery but it may be worth checking out.

    Not sure what to tell you, maybe a factory reset from recovery would work, tho I don't think that touches the /system folder...

    Bummer, dude...I don't know what you can do...:(

    This is a good cautionary tale for folks that enable root access to be very careful since you can't (yet) install a custom recovery and/or make a Nandroid backup to protect yourself from something like this.

    It wasn't the root process that bricked mine, it was dinking around a bit more than I should that did.

    oh, and I don't believe adb in recovery works, but again, I didn't have time to test...

    thats why i can't bring myself to buy this phone even though i want to. i'm hoping someone is able to flash a custom recovery. when i rooted my dinc i didn't remove system apps until unrevoked came out with the recovery reflash tool a few weeks later and i could make a nandroid backup. you are really playing with fire removing things without a safety net and i think a lot of people don't realize this. good luck op and other guy with bricked x hope you guys figure something out soon.

    After all the grief I've gone through installing bad ROMs and/or kernels with my Droid1, I can't imagine having root and no recovery. Scary Alien basically said it best. Nandroid (insurance?) FTW!
