The usual cause for this not working seems to be using the front USB ports or a hub for some reason. Best bet is to use a port directly off the motherboard.

As the phone is working again, you can always install CWM via another method, as this one is mostly for phones that are a bit poorly, or stock GB devices.

Just a note to say that I was indeed using the PC's front USB ports. I did however manage to flash it on the same ports using Paul's NVFlash so I think in this instance it was purely a case of my phone's partitions being utterly buggered, so I needed something more severe.

This thread gave me the confidence to try it however and I'm very thankful for that :) I would have been going in blind with raw NVFlash if it wasn't for people like you writing the batch files. So many thanks Rusty :)
At some point as a professional developer I'm actually going to try writing something/working with/for Android... so far.. I've managed Hello World LOL.

Hey so I installed drivers, ran the .bat and choose install external cwm, then a message saying successfully sent appeared and asked me to press any key to close the command promt, now what? my phone still says "S/W Upgrade Please wait while upgrading.." is it safe to unplug the cellphone or not yet?

Thanks.

EDIT
just read a while back it's safe to unplug it... sorry for asking here, I've been reading so much since yesterday that I don't even remember what I've already read.

EDIT2

WOW just WOW Rusty!, I owe you big time after installing CWM my phone booted normally, and I can access CWM with VOl- + Power

Is there a way I could brick my phone by trying roms? or as long as I have CWM I can simply flash a new rom?

It's pretty much unbrickable thanks to nVFlash, as you've found out. You can usually fall back to CWM, if not, do this again.
