I booted into recovery to make it. And, I followed these from another part of XDA to restore my md5 files from the terminal steps:
# cd /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2010-06-188.8.131.52
# rm nandroid.md5
# md5sum *img > nandroid.md5
Then when I went to restore the md5 check worked fine, but it said error when restoring my /android_secure, and when I rebooted, the phone is stuck on the CM9 boot animation. I think that's called a boot loop but I'm not sure? Either way, I've tried restarting it and it's still gets stuck on the boot animation. I am able to go into recovery. I feel that I am semi-bricked? I'm not sure. Anyway, HELP!
