    So here's the deal. Ive checked up and down the site but I haven't run across anybody with this problem. I've had my phone about a year. It has been rooted with no problems for about 6 months now. I've run a few roms but tried changing it up after sticking with a Mlign hero rom for some time. This is the story...

    I backed up all info from sd card on computer, and after that I deleted everything off sd and put new Rom (super d v1.11 along with the base file attached) on the root of the SD. Everything went fine and I had just finished flashing the Danger SPL along with the newest radio onto my phone. The 4 files on my sd card at the time were the ROM, DANGER SPL, NEW RADIO, and BASE for Super D rom. I flashed the radio, then the spl, and after this i partitioned my sdcard (THIS IS WERE I THINK I WENT WRONG!) and scrolled down to flash .filezip... When I went to do this it said there were no .zipfiles found. Odd because I put them on there.

    Now Im stuck with a mytouch 3g with an sd card holding nothing on it, and basically im stuck between a rock and a hard place. I cant connect my phone to computer via usb because i have no ROM on it and it doesnt get passed the mytouch splash screen.

    All my files are on my computer but I cant get them on my sd card. Im almost certain if i could get those files back on my sd card i can continue the process.
    I don't know if im bricked but im lost. Can anyone help me?

    That is definitely where you went wrong. When you partitioned your sdcard, you erased everything on it. You're gonna need to get an sdcard adapter so that you can transfer the files back from the computer.

    Do not, DO NOT, flash DangerSPL. It is for G1s only.

    ETA: DangerSPL didn't cause the problem, it's just unnecessary for the MT3G. Gawd only knows why they don't make that more clear in the install guide.

    Also ETA: Depending on your Recovery Image, you may be able to ADB push your files back to the sdcard from the computer from recovery.

    This time of night? Walmart. lol Otherwise, any computer store, Office Depot, Office Max, etc., etc.

    Do you have ADB set up on your computer? If not, go here: Install the Latest Android sdk - CyanogenMod Wiki. When it's installed, boot into recovery, select USB-MS toggle, and then push whatever files you want to (I'd just get the zipped rom back on there for now; copy the rest later).

    From the command window on your computer:

    Code (Text):
    1. adb push filelocation/file.zip /sdcard
    should do it.

    I think tomorrow I will run out and get an sd card adapter. Do you have any suggestions on a particular brand?

    No, I don't think the brand makes any difference.
