    Well, dumb me was not paying attention while i was doing a factory/data reset and everything got deleted on my SD card, guess i did Partition? I dont know

    I cannot nandroid back up or anything, and every time i try to reboot my phone it just sits in a constant boot loop (Damage4.6).

    Am i completely screwed here?

    Edit: And i have pulled the battery and tried everything and no luck

    Factory Resets do not touch the SD card.

    If you don't know what you did to your phone, than neither do we.

    As long as your phone has the 1.49.2000 S-OFF ("root") bootloader on it, you can simply re-root your phone. Everything else could be damaged, and this will still work. Why don't you turn the phone off, pull the SD card, and see if it will still go into HBOOT mode (Vol-Down+End/Power).

    Obviously, to re-root your phone, you need a SD card that is not corrupted so you can put the ROOT PB00IMG.ZIP file (md5sum 63eacc5ede3b179f95dc22d8ef585f94) onto an SD card and re-root your phone, and re-install the Amon_RA recovery.

    If I were you, given my incomplete understanding of what state your SD card is in, I would try and use a different microSD card than the one you are concerned with - just in case you want to attempt a forensic data recovery off the card you think (???) is corrupted. The worst thing you can do (if you want to get anything back from it) is to start writing files to it.

    If the 1.49.2000 S-OFF bootloader is still running - you can get your phone back. Whether or not you somehow managed to destroy the contents of your SD card remains to be seen.

    Edit - just saw your post (above this one). Good news.
