    I think you'll find the people here will have specific knowledge about the rooting and flashing process for your phone.

    Cyanogen 7.0.1 and below are for Gen 1 handsets, anything above that is Gen 2.

    Can you boot back into recovery again? If so, just copy an appropriate Cyanogen zip to your SD Card, then flash it again.

    Which version of clockwork are you using? The latest working version for Gen 1 devices is 3.0.1.4.

    Yeah, clockworkmod recovery.

    If you connect the phone to the PC, does it connect? Do you remember if USB Debugging was enabled?

    I'm about 99.99% sure you're recoverable. :)

    Do you want to stay as Gen 1, or upgrade your handset to Gen 2 so you can install the latest versions of Cyanogen etc?

    You're not actually bricked though, bricked means it won't turn on at all. You can get into clockwork which is always a good thing (even if it's the wrong version of clockwork).

    You can go to 2.3 in your state, but thinking about it, I'd rather get you up and working with a 2.2 ROM first, before we attempt the Gen 1 to Gen 2 thing.

    In looking for the correct clockwork image file, I found this. If you use method 2, it will install the correct version of clockwork for you. Once clockwork is on, you can flash the 7.0.1 version of Cyanogen.

    Give it a shot, let me know how you get on.
