I tried searching but do not understand the method to fixing this.

I can go into BOOTLOADER and FASTBOOT.
How do I recover my phone when in those two. I tried clicking on RECOVERY but it goes to the splash screen again and gets stuck.

Currently using CM6

My post on AndroidForums:
I have a rooted phone.

It was acting weird for the first time today. Whenever I pressed a button it would open up some weird windows I've never seen before. Like a weird looking calendar. So I restarted it and now it won't start up.

I did text someone with wet fingers and some small bits of water got on the keyboard.

Do you still have ESPRIMG.zip from when you rooted? Try putting that on the root of your sd card and going into the bootloader. It may or may not fix your problem though, heard mixed stories.

I downloaded the one from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...e=HTC_Espresso

then I went into bootloader and ran update.zip (also from there).
Restarted the phone and now it's still stuck on the splash screen.

What has happened?

However I find it hard to follow. WTF is a flash recovery? Someone walk me through it please!

When I open up ESPRING.zip,
there's a recovery.img. Is that my problem? Do I need a different recovery.img?

You're going about this all wrong. Okay, let me try to explain. I think you're mixing up recovery and bootloader. You enter the bootloader by holdijg volume down while holding the power button on boot. It should scan for ESPRIMG.zip, and if it finds it, it will flash it from the sd card. Recovery is the place where you flash roms. If you're flashing clockwork recovery, you flash update.zip from recovery, and you get to recovery from the bootloader. But you can't get to recovery, because obviously somethings wrong with recovery. So what I'm saying is put ESPRIMG.zip on the root of your sd card, not in any folders or anything, and then go into the bootloader by holding volume down and power. It should automatically scan for and install the zip. Report back your results

By the way, its ESPRIMG.zip not ESPRING.zip. M, not N.
