Default Need Help flashing my Sanyo Zio back to Cricket

I rooted my Zio running Cricket 1.6 with "SuperOneClick". After I rooted I wanted to backup the phone. I downloaded an app from market place called
"ROM Manager". When I hit the "Backup Current ROM" option It Poped up a list of phones(none of them were my Zio) and wouldn't let me go back. So I picked one at random and my phone restarted but when it came back on it stuck at the opening screen. So I took out the battery and after i put it back in I held down the "end call button" and the "down volume button" (I herd that would put it in recovery mode). It did something strange and restarted. Everything came on ok and I thought it was fixed bit when I tried to call someone it said i needed to activate my Verison Service. I dont know why but all that somehow changed my carrier from cricket to verison. my question in HOW DO I CHANGE IT BACK? Do i flash it to cricket? If so how?

I think that, instead of listing it as "Zio", it lists it as "Kyocera M6000". See if you can find that one and flash to it.

I am sorry you are having so many issues. But when you start fooling around with rooting (and clearly, you seem like you are as clueless as I am about the process because you picked a ROM at random) and flashing a ROM, there are many potential problems awaiting you.

Never do that because things might change in ways unanticipated, like (apparently) wiping out your old carrier data and telling you to activate Verison service.

A ROM is designed for a specific device and you must never guess about it.

You should backup your phone BEFORE rooting it. This is a given.

Hope you get it fixed.

Oh my. LoL. You flashed your cell service over to Verizon and bricked your phone good. Months after the fact now, but you can fix this if it hasn't been fixed yet. Everything you need to know about fixing this issue is located here.

Rom Manager DOES NOT support the Zio. The ONLY way to flash or boot anything is with fastboot, or in recovery using the custom recovery for the Zio. Which HAS to be booted thru fastboot since Rom Manager does not support the Zio, it's recovery, or it's Roms.
