I change mine one string at a time and don't block the floyd

You got your answer. You took tension from 3 of strings which cause most of the the tension from the bridge. The others snap. Learn to string a FR before fiddling with it.

To me that's like saying learn to ride a bike without riding one.

Im still after my answer. Do i need to jam something under my tremelo so i can just restring as normal?

I really don't feel like you guys are giving my decent advice, just pointing out the obvious and not having pity on someone who was probably in the same position as you at one point.

No, they literally already gave you the answer. Change one string at a time like the guy above said.

Seems like decent advice to me. I mean what else do you want us to do? Kiss your hand better?
Its not a big deal. You just need to do your research on how to set floyds up properly.

Try putting something like an eraser under your bridge to temporarily block it, then string it one by one until all the strings are on. After that tune up and your good!

P.S. make sure you stretch the strings out good!
