Root Wiped Triumph by mistake, thinking I was freeing up SD card space.

My problem: Thinking I was wiping my SD card, I wiped everything from the phone itself, including CWM.

I can't get the red charging light off, can't get into a download mode to add CWM to the phone, etc, even though I have all the info on my SD Card(CWM and all functions).

Am I cooked? Is there any way to "awaken" the phone to download CWM and CM9, etc???

Thanks.
 
I would wait for someone else to confirm, but I do believe that your phone is toast. If you can't get into download mode, you cant restore whatever it is that you deleted..... I would recommend, if you are still under warranty, calling virgin mobile and telling them that your phone won't boot. They will take you through some stupid steps before sending you a new phone.

P.S. as a last resort, if you aren't under warranty, try calling them anyway. I am fairly sure that, at least once, they sent me a free new phone even after my warranty had expired.
