    Well, you can

    1) do a factory data reset
    2) Install another theme over it and wipe data and cache
    3) sbf back to your rom.

    Feel free to ask for further help if necessary.

    Glad you asked. Firstly I would ask you if you're on android 2.2.1 or 2.2. Then I would direct you to the appropriate files and procedure on how to recover your phone back to stock.

    Are you bricked, now?

    sbf is a recovery process if you are bricked. At this point, if I were you, I'd switch to another theme or rom or just do a factory data reset. SBF isn't necessary..

    Ok! What I did was, unroot with Z4. & installed 928 back to stock de-odexed. How can I tell if I am unrooted & it is out of the ox stock? So I can OTA updates.

    I don't think it needs to be unrooted for the OTA, I was able to update last time while rooted. I don't think it needs to be odexed bit it will take your deodexed phone back to odexed

    Did you make a backup BEFORE you deodexed and applied a theme?

    Restoring a backup would be the easiest way back to stock.

    No you didn't need to unroot and I've read that deodexed phones got the upgrade. For me, root was broken and I had to reroot after.

    Deodexing is required to install themed applications. Odexed is how your phone was when you received it.
