    I accidentally posted this in the intro section previously so I moved it here.

    Hi I have had my new/used Droid 1 all of 3 days and had to start playing.

    I rooted it just fine and tried installing the Gingerbread ROM only to have it stick on the M Logo. So, reinstalled the backup and all is good. Then tried, the CM 7 and CM 6 ROMs only to have the same issue with not getting past the M logo after reboot. I am back to the original ROM and works fine.

    I really want to flash a new ROM though, any ideas? Remember I am a NOOB.

    Hmmmm, have you backed up your apps with Titanium Backup? My friend was having the same issue and had to clear/wipe the phone before putting the Rom on. So he backed up his apps and wiped it. Then it worked fine.

    Try hunting around in the Root threads here.


    I am sure someone has posted the stuff you need there.

    Don't use ROM manager. Although it works for "some" people, most experienced people prefer to copy it to their SD.

    Do a backup.

    Boot to recovery, then do your wipes, to include Devalk cache under Advanced, and flash your new ROM.
