    Hi everyone... just did something stupid... was updating to a new ROM, put it in the wrong folder and I just wiped everything.... I don't have a nandroid backup and the phone won't boot because I wiped everything! What can I do?

    The wipe shouldn't touch your OS. It should boot to the original OS or ROM you had. You may try to put the SD card into your PC and move the right stuff to the right place, then try it again?

    If you can get into SB Recovery you can mount your SD card right from the phone and use Windows file explorer to manipulate the files you need or add needed files (try to get your ROM of choice as an update.zip to put in the root). Then you can easily install it through recovery.

    But it builds confidence when you realize you can handle it :)
