    I have rooted my Droid with the SuperOneClick Method and then i installed Rom Manager and flashed clockwork mod with it. Now i tried DLing Cyanogen Mod and then BB and when they went through the steps to flash and backup it wouldnt backup the original ROM correctly and then it fails to install the new ROM. It did that with both ROMs i DLed. What did i do wrong?

    Make sure you're rooted. Try running an app that requires root like Wireless tether. You can also try using Droid 2/X Bootstrapper in the market. http://forum.androidcentral.com/moto...om-roms-4.html

    Are you wiping the data and cache in clockwork before flashing the new Rom? You might want to also check out Bootstrapper.

    yeah i am wiping and backing up before flashing. still doesnt work. also i dont want to pay for an app like bootstrapper when Rom manager should work and i already payed for the premium one.

    So your able to backup but you can't flash a Rom that you downloaded using Rom manager is the correct?
    If that is true try downloading the Rom using your computer and the move it to your sdcard and try flashing in recovery. I don't usually download in Rom manager because it take so long.

    it wont even let me create backups.

    i just used superoneclick to unroot, formatted the SD card, did a full data wipe, and then re-rooted and tried it again and it STILL wont work.

    also...when doing the SuperOneClick root method it has 2 options on the top right for exploits. Psneuter and rageagainstthecage. Which one of these 2 should I have it checked on? is that what could be causing issues with the ROM installations? also this method does install busybox right? I tried DLing busybox from the market too and it still didnt help.

    also now when i try to do a backup or flash a new rom it doesnt even try to open it, it just shows a triangle with a phone laying down next to it.

    go into rom manager and flash sprecovery...or if you want to flash the clockwork recovery make sure after you select motorola droid (cdma) and flash...it should only take 3-5 seconds to say successfully flashed...if it takes longer than that keep flashing until you get the message in the 3-5 second window then try to download the rom you want

    One thing i've found, is flashing the SPrecovery, then flashing back to Clockwork would usually work for me. just something to consider.

    Your getting the ! and phone is because you don't have a custom recovery also the ROM Manager recovery server was down last night for a little bit...should be fine now...I just flashed the newest nightly build of CM7 last night around 1am, so flash your recovery again as said and then re-dl a ROM.

    Thank you everyone. I tried this and flashed clockwork mod until it would do it quickly and then i was able to finally flash cyanogen onto my droid. now im gonna try the nightly builds and see how that works. thanks again to everyone who helped me out with this.
