So, how long should it take to flash a new ROM off of ROM Manager?
So, I finally rooted my phone with z4root, downloaded ROM Manager and Titanium Backup. Went ahead, flashed Clockwork Recovery, backuped everything with Titanium and made a backup through ROM Manager. After the whole ordeal, I decided to flash CyanogenMod 6. It's been at least a half-hour and it's still on that familiar screen with the exclamation mark. (I'm no stranger to booting into recovery, having manually installed every update I've gotten.) That's not normal, right? It should've been done by now, right? So, do I just battery pull, boot into recovery, and do it all manually?
Would the amount of space left on my SD card have anything to do with this? The Google Apps, backup, and CyanogenMod shouldn't have taken up the last half-gig of my SD card, should it have? (Yes, I ran through the 16-gig card that came with my Droid. I listen to ALOT of music.)
[edit:] Minor update. Tried just what I said, and I had difficulty opening the recovery menu. (The familiar /!\ was still there, though.) Then tried seeing if I could boot normally. Could. No Cyanogenmod, though. Me is sad...

If you're still stuck at the ! screen, sounds like you need to flash Clockwork recovery with an older version vs the current version. I've had good luck with 220.127.116.11 for Cyanogen roms. In fact, used this version to flash the CM6RC3 when it became available.Samsung Galaxy S3
Alrighty then. Thanks for that. Older version worked. Now I have to wait for the market to restore all 106 of my old apps. YIKES! Did not know it was going to do that. I was planning on just using Titanium Backup to get back to speed.

I normally use App Brain to restore the apps. Prefer to do a fresh install on apps in hopes to avoid any problems. Word of advice, with installing a new rom and recovering all of those apps, your phone is prob going to run like poo for a few hrs today, but after all the installs and a reboot, it should be smokin. What ver of CM6 did you go with?Samsung Galaxy S3
The current stable Cyanogen. Was tempted to go with CM6.1 RC3, but I wanted to get a hang of things first before I start tinkering with flashy stuff. Although I do miss ADW 1.2, and I am a little annoyed the new versions of YouTube and Car Home won't install.
