There should be no problem if you can switch on your bootloader (vol+ + power on).
The solution is in the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1216982 first post, Method 2 (files available, which is not the case in Method 1.).

Do all steps exactly as written. Then you can flash any CM 7 or 9. But probably you have no way back to froyo.

At least I have tesed it.

But I had the same. And this method helped. You loose nothing if try.
Flash with RDSLite (it is eclair with CG5, then exact steps with CM7 and next flash. You will get kind of CM7 (here I also cleared private data from a system which somehow made the internal memory full), which you may stay with or change to any CM, MIUI, WIUI etc.

Ok, so you tried to flash another ROM and couldn't press bootloader. Which sbf did you flash to revive it?

Also read the whole OP of the threat posted before.

My suggestion would be to tell your friend that he either fixes your phone, or buys you a new one. Why should you have to go to all this trouble if he broke it?!
