Stuck at Password Screen

I made an error somewhere...I installed the latest "Dream Rom" successfully after that I reinstalled a backup of programs and contacts from my 8gb memory card and just to be safe I put my Touch Pro in Airplane mode so not to be interruted while re-installing the backup. Now my problem is I cant unlock the Touch Pro because for some reason the password that Im sure of doesn't match and I cant unlock my TP Has anyone gone thru this and what was the solution!!!! I tried multiple hard resets, called Sprint got the ##3282# with no luck....what can I do to fix this situation besides staring at the phone with an evil eye

Re: Stuck at Password Screen

Im willing to do a hard reset but I not sure if I executed it correctly...I tried holding the volume down button and the power button then used the stylus but I just returned to the password needed screen....at this point a successful hard reset would be wonderful

You need to power off your TP to do the the hard reset.

Coz

When you say power off, so far I can only put the TP into temp sleep mode meaning that it will quickly respond if keyboard is opened and return to password request.. how do I power down if the TP is locked??

But in your original post you already said you did hard resets. You telling me you hard resetted and there was STILL a password? That just cant be
