I was trying to install the .215 ICS leak on my phone. I unzipped the contents of the file before I copied them to my SD card on my phone. Now when I go into the "appy update from external device" it says choose a package to install. Is there a way to get out of recovery mode without changing anything? I need to delete the unzipped file and put the .zip on my SD card. Thanks guys. Freaking out a little here.
After re-reading your post a few times, as long as you didn't do anything in recovery mode, like try to install the package that you had unzipped, just hold down the power and volume down button for 10 seconds to reboot and it should boot up as normal.
I tried to get into stock recovery to see what it looked like, as I've never used it, but I just got the Android with the red triangle over his chest, no options. I held down the battery pull combo and it rebooted.
You're a life saver man. Rebooted like normal. Thanks again.
Never mind lol

Lead me not into temptation.... cause I probably know about 20 different shortcuts
If you plan to flash experimental ROMs, it would probably be a good idea to root and make a nandroid backup. That way if you do mess anything up, you can flash back to the old version and restore /data/ and get all your stuff back.
I always make a backup before I change anything in the system. Once I was trying to flash an update on my DX (to change the battery icon after deodexing) and flashed the wrong version. When the phone came on, every single application FC'd instantly, making the phone completely unusable. I couldn't even get back to recovery mode to flash the backup. Luckily there was a process to force the phone into bootstrap so I could flash the backup and try again.
TL;DR: ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP.
