Default EVO Stuck On White Loading Screen

Hey all. I'm (obviously) new here and wanted to thank you guys for being a help to wanderers online.

I rooted my EVO a little while ago and was very happy with it until I got to Cyanogenmod 7.3.0.1 or whatever the most recent version is as of today. That version suffers from the GPS problem, which I was attempting to remedy by flashing to another ROM, a Sense one. After that, my phone has been stuck on the white loading screen indefinitely.

Additional information:
My memory card, for some reason, became undocked. I don't know why, but this was last week. I tossed a smaller one that I had laying around into the phone after that and used my computer to try and view the one that came with my phone, but it wouldn't/couldn't read the files. I was out of storage room, so I elected to format the memory stick, using the ability to do so in ROM Manager. I did this before downloading the Sense Rom and before rebooting, of course.

So, am I screwed? I saw that it was pretty difficult to actually screw u your phone, but not impossible to do so in the process. Did I succeed in bricking my phone?

Edit: Now, when I reboot, it immediately goes into the recovery screen, regardless of if I'm holding volume down on the phone or not.

I'll stop monkeying with it now.

I moved this to the rooting section as I believe you are more likely to get help with this issue here.

Did you do a full and complete wipe before flashing a new ROM? A bit more information is needed before help can be given. What exactly did you do?

Yeah, after downloading the Fresh ROM from ROM Manager, I selected to wipe the caches. Even in Recovery, I wiped every damned thing. I feel like I'm close to busting though and becoming operable again. If there were a ROM on the SD card, couldn't I just use the recovery function to just use that to start up the phone and make it operable again?

Sorry about a lack of details, if that's the case. Clearly, I know enough to be dangerous.

Wiping caches is not wiping everything. You have to wipe the data, too. That's the important part. Best thing to do is get Calkulin's wipe everything zip (which you can find by searching this forum or on XDA) and flash that. And I hope you are manually flashing. Using ROM Manager to flash ROMs causes nothing but problems. Yes, if there's a ROM on the card, you can flash that in Recovery, but make sure you wipe EVERYTHING first.

I installed Fresh too and had the same problem of it getting stuck on the white HTC screen. To fix it I popped out the battery and entered the hboot screen, then recovery, then install zip from SD, selected the Fresh Rom. It sounds like you used just the ROM manager, which I did too, but after going in and doing this manually it finally worked. I did have to do it twice and when it finally did work it took forever the first time to load up, felt like 30mins but probably was 5mins. Nothing worse than thinking you bricked your phone. As long as you can get to your recovery screen and have a SD card with the new ROM on it you should be good.
