Need help! Can't boot phone
Hello all! I've been trying to fix my phone for a few days, and can't seem to do it, so I thought I'd make a post regarding it.
I believe the beginning of this originated after trying to go back to gingerbread from fc15 ICS. To learn from my mistakes, this is NOT good, right? lol. probably because fc15 wasn't made for gingerbread?
I was able to get into CWM, but I couldn't perform a recovery or install a new ROM. At this time (after trying a whole bunch of things to fix my device), I may or may not be rooted, but I'm almost certain I am not because I can't get into CWM. If I have to lose all of my data, I guess I will (I didn't have an SD card at the time - just got one), but if there's any way I would like to keep my data. Also, at this point, I'm at the "formware upgrade encountered an issue. please select revoery mode in kies and try again". I have been able to get rid of this screen in the past, but I'd like to know the best rout to go from here.
I have read about bricked devices for awhile now, but to attempt to link the hazy definition I have with experience, is my device bricked?
Please help me!
