Most of the ROM developers have fairly explicit instructions on what the requirements are for their ROMs. Others take the approach that you should do some homework before you do something that will potentially turn your $600 phone into a paperweight.

At any rate, you're not the first nor will you be the last. Live and learn.

Do you know what build you were on? Go to Settings>About Phone. Scroll to the build information. We need the last three characters of that build - two letters and a number that start with a "M."

Follow the directions. I can't hold your hand because I've never done it. I have just a little experience with ODIN. There's another thread in the development forum that tells you how to do it for the MK2 base. There's a bit more detail on the directions. You can try the MK2 .tar file but the instructions say that might not work.

That will take your phone back to the way it was when it came out of the box. I'd strongly suggest you leave it like that until you've done your homework.

Here's a hint to help you out. Most everything you might need to know is on the first page of each forum. All of the latest and greatest information will be there, including the bugs and the workarounds.
