    I root my phone, installed Fourth Wave without a hiccup. I do my co-workers phone the same way and now he is stuck in HBoot. Radio won't update either. I removed the battery for 20min and tried, no luck. Goes right into HBoot. Anyway to get the phone back to normal???

    Install a ROM, it should be fine.

    Just to clarify, you tried to install the ROM again right? Not just the first try.

    do you have s-off? if so you might be able install the PB31IMG.zip since hboot will automatically ask if you want to update to it... just need to find the stock compiled zip file to get you back to stock... I saw it around XDA somewhere to allow people to revert back to stock for the ota...
    I'm no expert but thats what I think would work

    I found a stock compile PB31IMG.zip with the stock 1.0 radio and Hboot .77. I know it worked (well at least partially) because HBoot is now .77 when it was .92 before. Still booting in Fastboot. Did some searching and I know it's not bricked and can be recovered. Just having a hard time finding the solution.

    You need a ROM. hboot is fine, you just cant boot anything. Put a ROM on the root of your SD card, go into recovery and flash it.

    I don't believe that there is a stock ROM for 2.1. There is an all inclusive image that will wipe everything back to stock. But you can try installing any ROM at this point. It shouldn't matter which.

    Don't forget to re-root first if you used an IMG that removed root/returned the stock recovery. ;)

    I found a ROM but now the Clockwork Recovery isnt on the phone. Is there a way to install Clockwork through HBoot or Bootloader?

    You need to reflash unrevoked, as you removed it when you tried restoring the stock image.
