Help is my phone brick'd

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping someone can help me - I've flashed my diamond many of times. But this last flash, when I did a reset I seem to be stuck on the touch diamond screen where it displays the radio number and other text and it does not seem to get past this screen.
Can anyone tell me how I can reflash from this point or is my phone pretty much toast.

Thanks
Appreciate the help

Take your battery out of the phone for 30 seconds or so, put it back in. Hold the volume down button, and then turn on the phone with the power button. This will put you into bootloader, and from there you should be able to re-flash. Probably a good idea to flash back to the "shipped" rom first ...

First of all, make sure to read the stickies at the top of the forum... MUST READ - A Change To UPGRADE Forums ... this thread should not be in this section of the forum... to answer your question, your phone is NOT bricked. Pull the battery and hard reset manually by pressing the power button, volume down, and the center circle all at the same time, it'll ask you to confirm the hard reset, follow the directions. If this does not help, take the battery out again, this time hold down the power button and volume down to put the phone into bootloader mode, now you can sync it up to your computer via usb and flash back to a rom that actually works (stock would be your best bet), you don't need to have an activesync connection, it will change from serial to usb toward the bottom of the screen letting you know it's connected.

Good luck... and please read the stickies next time before you post.
