I almost posted a deperate plea - now i think i believe in god
Wow, that was scary, i was changing from JF rc30 to JF rc08 and forgot to wipe the phone first.
I realized my error the second i pressed the buttons, but it was too late and i let it do its thing..
when i rebooted i got a image that looked like a microchip, with an arrow... nothing happened. I pulled the battery out and tried again.... nothing!
Panic and chaos, thought it was the end! (i have such bad luck with technology - managed to type 'sudo chown ~/' in my terminal on the computer before etc) anyway, as i was typing my 'PLEASE HELP ME' style message my mobile buzzed into action and took me to the recovery mode where i wiped, installed an HEY PRESTO
Let me just take this moment to thank all of you who would have rushed to my aid if all had gone wrong *tears in eyes, violins play*
