    Used hack-kit to root my phone with no problems, flashed Gingerbread and all went well but I was under the impression that my phone service wasn't working properly so I stupidly attempted to restore the phone.

    Now my phone just loops through the "HTC Quietly (whatever)" boot screen. I can use the recovery features by holding the vol down button and power when turning the phone on, but I don't know what to do to get the phone working again.

    Can anyone help me? I'd really appreciate it. I just want this to be over with...

    If you can get it into recovery have you tried flashing the GB ROM back onto it?

    I need to get the ROM back onto the SD card, which I can't do at the moment because I have no way to get data onto it without my phone (as an SD reader between the card and the computer). I'll be able to soon though... :/

    Well I'm not a expert by any means on rooting and ROMs but I'd say to try to start there. My SD card came with a adapter so if you can get one of those let us know if you can get the old ROM flashed back on.

    Excellent, I was able to flash a new ROM and now everything is working fine... Feels so good to be able to take a breather...

    It also must feel good to know that you resolved it on your own. Whenever I have an "OH S--T!" moment - and I've had my share of them - I'm always inwardly pleased when I'm finally able to resolve the problem on my own. It's a sense of accomplishment. :)

    just incase this happens again you should have the ruu on your computer so you can flash that back on just incase something does go wrong again, or the gingerbread rom
