Ok here goes:
Earlier today my Blade was Gen1, rooted and running Swedish Spring RLS5. I've never had any problems flashing ROMS up to this point.
Then I decided to upgrade to CM07.0.2 Stable by curl66.
The phone was wiped as instructed and reflashed.
After this the phone booted into Clockworkmod Recovery (CWM) and wouldn't move.
I tried using Windows and the Blade Diagnostic solution, successfully flashed Gen2 and Gen1 ROMS (at this point I had no idea what Gen my phone still was) but got nowhere. I restored the NVM file values to the original IMEI and still no progress.
I tried the Blade Custom Generic firmware method using download.exe and although flashing was successful, the phone refused to move past the FTM screen. NVM values were checked, changed and I still got nowhere.
Finally I found this thread and was able to get back to CWM.
The phone refuses to accept any ROMS that I flash. The Ginger Stir Fry flash aborts soon after I "install zip from SD".
I did put Swedish Spring back on but after successful flashing and removing the IMG file, the phone just goes back into CWM.
Have I missed something somewhere or is there something else that I can try? Any help appreciated!

Booting into recovery mode (FTM mode and clockworkmod are just two different things that might be in recovery) and not into anything else is usually a symptom of corrupt NV memory, but TPTs should not be able to do any damage to it, so I don't know why it would have happened to you.
Links: what is windows and the blade diagnostics solution? Did you make a nvm backup yourself and then restore it, or did you download one and modify it with your IMEI?

Hi thanks for the reply.
I made back ups of my phone using both Titanium and Clockworkmod. I also tried to restore from the latter but i get errors regarding device cache space for log files. So it doesn't work for me.
I modified any NVM file in the ROMS that I was going to flash or if unavailable I d/l one. In both cases I changed the values to my IMEI using a hexeditor. I did try and backup/restore the NVM file but I wasn't sure which NVM file was being used. In any case it didn't seem to work for me.

If you hadn't corrupted your NV memory before, you have now. you need to follow the instructions in this thread
to restore your IMEI. Its probably appropriate to post further queries on that thread than here. If you do that properly you should be ok

Alright, thank you
Apologies for all the quotes but its the recent support history that brings me to this thread.
I just flashed to the Gen2 stock ROM using the software from the first post in this thread.
The "software" text field is now showing FRY_SFIN_P729BV1.0.0BO5
But I can't boot into FTM mode to restore the IMEI.
First question: how do I get into FTM mode?
I've tried power and volume - on reboot. It just sends an android on my screen and then Clockworkmod 220.127.116.11
Second question: Which folder do I put the edited NVM file into to restore it?
