    From skateboard screen...

    If I do reboot, it reboots. Not into rom.

    If I do bootloader, the option afterward is fast boot, that brings me back to where I was. Not in the rom.

    wait, how are you in rom manager if you can't get back in to the rom?

    I just got confused.. so first you told rom manager to install a zip from the sd, you picked it, told it to wipe and it rebooted in to the white screen with 3 androids on skate boards (this screen is called fastboot), then you pulled the battery, then it came back up to fastboot, you hit bootloader, hit reboot and then it came back to fastboot or it loaded the phone normally?

    Well..

    Once at the fast boot screen. I pulled the battery and turned it on. It booted up, but isn't in the new rom. Everythign is the same. So I tried again in rom manager and back to fast boot. I hit bootloader, hit fast reboot and it rebooted again. no changes.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Alright, I don't know why that kicked you to fastboot, but just for a pre-flash test, reboot in to recovery.

    just hit it in rom manager and make sure you boot through, if it kicks you out, then boot back in to the phone normally, go to rom manager and hit install clockwork recovery.

    Awesome!! now just reboot and let rom manager do the rom install you wanted to do, be sure to create a backup!! and always wipe cache/data!!

    If you need to, also check out titanium bacup to backup your apps and app data!

    Awesome, man thanks alot.. Seriously. I have Tit back up so I'll be using it for the first time too I'd assume. I'm at the 4G logo boot up screen.. excited.

    Once again, thanks.. Its got to be painful dealing with noobs such as myself all the time. This whole topic kind of spawned after reading how people dislike the one click methods. I grasp why.

    No problem, we kind of took the long way around that one because I thought you couldn't boot back in to your rom, but hey no harm no foul!

    Enjoy it, don't worry about being a noob, we were all new at something at one point or another, no biggie, that's why AC is good cause it doesn't matter if you know a lot about one thing but not something else - just ask and there you go!
