Default (Solved)*Help* Clockwork Recovery bricked my phone!!!

I just bought the premium version of Clockwork Recovery. Just before that I ran the "fix permissions" as it was my understanding its supposed to help fix apps from "force close". It instructed me to reboot and now its stuck at the Kyocera boot logo with...

CANNOT READ BOOT IMAGE HEADER

Serial Number: UNKNOWN

ptn 0 name='fota_amss' start=538 len=132

This ptn goes all the way to 8 then after that flash_detect_size 4G!

I take it my phone is totally bricked? Now what?

Yeah I was able to get it back. But now I have a triangle in the status bar and don't know what that is. I thought it was that I needed to *228 my phone but it won't do it.

You all didnt read my clockwork recovery thread posted further up on this sub forum.....
Please read it.

That recovery image doesnt work. Flat out. Im trying to get a hold of Koush to remove it from the rom manager list, but hes hard to get a hold of on the weekdays.

You need to flash your original recovery back to the recovery partition through fastboot in order to "unbrick" your phone.

It happened because the image doesn't work - and if you would have read my thread on clockworkmod recovery, you would have known that and not borked ur recovery.

You guys need to read threads before going all cowboy n ****.

If you have a copy of your stock recovery image (which you should have all your images backed up if you're flashing different images to your phones), you need to flash that to your recovery partition in order to fix your issue.

I think he needs to change the thread title to something more appropriate like " Help, I did something wrong while using Clockwork Recovery and now I Bricked my phone! "
