    Hi yudopplyr, and welcome to AF.

    I'm afraid that /data and /system are rather important: /data is where all user apps and app data (including user settings, contacts) are stored, and /system is the ROM.

    Can you still get into recovery (4Ext)? If so then if you copy a custom ROM .zip file onto your sd card (either use a card reader or mount usb storage from 4Ext Recovery and copy over usb) you should be able to install it ("install zip from sd" menu). You should always do a factory reset first, but as you've already formatted /data it may not matter so much (but worth doing, if only to clean up .android_secure on your sd card).

    I'm afraid I've no idea what those backup files are, though I'm not familiar with the Desire Z/G2 (I do have an HTC Desire and use 4Ext Touch recovery on that, but don't recognise those filenames). For the same reason I can't recommend a ROM for this phone.

    Thanks, for the answer you gave me an idea how to solve my problem, I used the stock Rom of this phone from this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1314541

    Apparently the rooting proccess work even after installing the ROM again :) .

    This problem is solved, thanks for the answer.

    Note: I installed the ROM from the EXT 4 Touch recovery

    Yes, that's a pre-rooted version of the stock ROM (all custom ROMs I know of are already rooted) :)

    As another doubt, will something happen if I restore to factory settings from the settings menu in the phone? Will the phone get bricked or will my phone get unrooted?

    Neither.

    But to be safe, take a backup from recovery once you have it set up. Then if anything crazy happens you can restore the system to its current state.
