What ROM did you try to use? are you trying to upgrade with a SMART Rom?
With later SAP ROMs they played with the bootloader to make it hard to use other manufacturers ROMs.

Have you tried re-installing the origianl ROM you started with before updating?

You need to download the 1.8 ROM from SMART, the SMART ROM version you started with was designed to stop people downgrading easily.
It's a shame that you bought the very old 1.37 update as I am sure it can still be downloaded from older web sites. I presume you were trying to SIM unlock your phone to use it on another network?

To get the phone up and running again try the latest ROM from smart which can be found in the link below.

Run the update from the bootloader.
