Thanks for your reply. I tried all of the buttons - the menu one, home one, back one and the off button, but none of them work. I didn't download ClockworkMod, this thing I downloaded to unbrick my phone downloaded it for me, if that makes any sense. Still no luck, it's not doing anything besides going back and forth from the logo to the options menu.
I see. That actually makes sense, and it is probably a good thing it does because with CWM installed you have the ability to give command to the phone from the computer. What I'm going to suggest needs a lot of patience, a calm head and some software
What I tell you gives you the ability to instruct your phone from the command line and we're going to install a new recovery that can actually do something.
You will need Google's ADB tool and drivers to your phone (I think you actually have it from burstlams guide). You should install ADB as a part of the Android SDK from here: http://developer.and...ling/index.html
You will only need to install Tools and Platform tools, the two upper choices from the list. (In the topmost folder).
When you are done, connect your phone to your computer via USB cable. Open a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd) and type in: "adb devices" (without the quotes.) That should show your phone as the only item in a list. If you can see it, you're good. You should download a new recovery image (the .img file) from here: http://www.modaco.co...recovery-v6008/
and rename it to say "cwm.img" so you won't need to type so much later. Next you should push that file to your phone, like this: "adb push C:\Users\<your username>\Dowloads\cwm.img /sdcard/cwm.img" and if it is done, you can install it like this:
flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwm.img
If all goes well, you can restart your phone and you can now boot into this new recovery if (well, on the blade at least this way...) you hold volume down (or vol. up if that doesn't work) while the phone starts.
Well I seriously hope I'm writing this down clearly... Don't worry, there's still hope.
Report back with your progress, please.
