Now that Baofeng changed the memory layout with the introduction of
N5R firmware, this is something that you must not do. The latest CHIRP
daily builds (since October 2014) prevent this. CHIRP stable does not
not prevent this because it was released before radios with N5R
firmware were available.

The radio is not ruined. These are the steps that you must follow.

Another solution would be for you to download a "fresh" CHIRP Radio
Image from your radio and email it to me. I will make an "adjustment"
to it and email it back. Then you will have to upload this "image"
back into your radio.

Once you radio is working normally again, and it will, you will need
to upgrade CHIRP to the latest daily build.
