This morning it said "there is a new firmware update from Verizon". I pushed the OK button and now i am stuck right where you are.

How full was your battery when this happened?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Have you tried to reboot? or power off, remove battery, replace battery and turn on? Just some ideas.

Do you have a way to connect the SDCard to your computer? My guess is the phone wasn't stock when your friend gave it to you and the OTA made it mad.  In that case, Verizon will most likely be of no help.   You should be able to get the signed 2.11.605.19 RUU from here which can be installed in HBOOT.  If that doesn't work, you'll likely have to go to one of the more developer friendly sites for help

My phone was stock and never rooted. Bought it directly from Verizon.

I fixed this issue by opening my thunderbolt, revmoving the battery and sd card, reinserting the battery and rebooting (without the sd card) after it powered up and logged in fine, I shut it down and reinserted the sd card and it booted fine.
