Default Verizon sucks sometimes... (just a good warning)

Okay a tip for you who are new to the world of rooting and flashing and cusrom ROMS. (Im relatively new)
TO ALL OF YOU RUNNING THE SAME PHONE MODEL AS ME. (Or any new Verizon phone) Verizon has locked the bootloaders so puting Cynogen mod on can be a long and hard process. You mist WIPE data not format. And ive bricked my phone doing this. After that ive not got past. Help pls ")

Ok well the phone you have now only supports rooting and SafeStrap recovery. Do you recall what build it is on.. Mk2 or mj7?
You Need to get it into download mode and flash the stock firmware.
