    I tried to root my phone using the guide on rootz wiki entitled "[KERNEL] [GUIDE] Root Your Stratosphere! :)"

    I got up to flashing my phone, but I got a weird interaction:

    user$ --kernel root-zImage

    ERROR: Failed to receive response!

    SO the root failed, I assume. Now it keeps saying that the firmware encountered an error instead of turning on. Is my phone bricked? Can I fix this?

    Using Mac OS 10.6.8
