    wrap your head around this:

    so i go to reroot my phone after taking it to stock, i move the su.zip to the sdcard

    i enter into adb reboot bootloader
    i try to install clockwork recovery
    hit enter recovery
    stock recovery...
    i made it reboot
    but before it could finish rebooting i removed the battery(to make what im doing faster)
    i noticed im still oem locked
    so i unlocked the bootloader
    and reinstalled clockwork touch recovery
    i boot into recovery, cant see contents of sdcard... why not.

    duh i forgot oem unlock wipes it out
    so i went to reboot.


    (unlock icon)

    keeps rebooting to this. will not boot

    remove the battery.
    force the phone into bootloader
    adb doesnt see the phone... is this thing truly bricked now?

    If you're not IT, that can be a problem. :D

    Can you alter the sdcard to look like a different type of media? :D

    How about booting off a linux cd?

    Oh, I'd have to bring in my laptop to do anything (which I have before ;) :)).

    We're locked-down pretty tightly (for good reason--I work for a healthcare system (in IT) and we don't want to compromise PHI (protected health information)).

    I've actually got admin rights to my work desktop, which most folks don't, but the USB ports are really-tightly controlled.

    Also IT, but banking services. Most of our security comes from CC audits. :D

    I had the same problem when going from Liquid to AOKP, but formatting system, fixed it.
