    You'll have to boot the phone into download mode and reflash the stock factory firmware. There are methods for this on XDA, in the development section of the Sidekick forum.... look for threads on either Odin or Heimdall, the 2 methods for restoring factory firmware. I can post a link or two a bit later if you like.
