Unhappy Help, i tried unrooting, now stuck in bootloader screen

First off I'd like to thank everyone that has contributed to helping everyone out in this forum. Before anyone tells me to check out other peoples threads, I have and everyone has a unique case of their own. I tried following different steps to get my Evo back up but each attempt was unsuccessful.

Description of what happened:

I rooted my Evo back in Sep to get the wifi tethering to work and all went well.
I began to experiment with different roms at that point to try to get my Evo to run faster so i continuously played around with many different roms since i first rooted my phone. Maybe around 15 plus roms.
I ended up loving Azrael's rom and stuck with it, so i was using this rom. Azrael_X_3.29_V2.1_DC_by_Ricsim78

All was going well until my GPS stopped working, so I was going to go back to the sprint store and try to get it replaced. And of course I needed to unroot my cell. I tried many different methods of unrooting but I never had any luck. Until I read this post and used his method of unrooting.

[How To] Unroot and return to stock. - Android Forums

After I did this, it said it was complete and so my cell restarted and stayed on the bootloader screen.

Now every time i press the power button, it goes straight into the bootloader.

This is what it says:

SUPERSONIC EVT2-3 SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT-0.79.0000
TOUNCH PANEL-ATMEL224_16ab
RADIO-1.39.00.04.26
APR 14 2010, 15:41:34


FASTBOOT USB

BOOTLOADER
REBOOT
REBOOT BOOTLOADER
POWER DOWN

when I click on BOOTLOADER

it says :
FASTBOOT
RECOVERY
CLEAR STORAGE
SIMLOCK
HBOOT USB

now from past experience i would normally go to recovery and use clockworkmod to flash a backup incase anything went wrong, but now that i press recovery, it just goes to black screen with the evo and the red exclamation point.

I read someone else had a similar issue and it was resolved after pressing clear storage so i did that, and it says to continue press yes so i did, and it just starts up as it would anytime an evo would start up and it goes straight into the bootloader again.

Any helpful hints? I thought of putting a PC36IMG onto my sd card and hoping it would start with that but I read a dif post that he didn't have any luck with that.. if anyone could help out it would be much appreciated.

Re: Help, i tried unrooting, now stuck in bootloader screen

I know the crises is over but I think if I ever get that jammed up and I have TEP (which I always do), I am just going to "lose" my phone and have one for spare parts.
