    Please get me out of Gingerbread Prison

    Hello all

    I recently installed Gingerbread on my rooted OG Droid 1 with froyo 2.3.? and when I try to reboot into one of my other ROM's it will not go past the whit Motorola logo that you see at the beginning of a boot cycle. Will someone please tell me how to overcome this step by step? It is very frustrating because I just wanted to try it out to see what it was like and now I'm in Gingerbread prison. I want my rooted ROM's back! Thanks in advance, Randall

    Did you wipe before the new rom? Can you get into recovery?

    Hi CJM

    Hi CJM,

    Yes on my RomManager app after I downloaded the Peter Alfonso GPA15 it prompted me and asked me the three questions 1)backup, 2)wipe and cashe, 3)reboot and I checked all three so I am assuming that I did.

    Just FYI

    My "about phone" menu reads:

    Android Version
    2.3.3

    Baseband version
    C_01.43.01P

    Kernel version
    2.6.32.9-peteralfonso
    root@pete#16

    Build number
    GPA15

    Thanks for helping me!!

    Have you tried installing the roms or wiping through recovery? As in, dont use rom mangler. Have you tried flashing an older backup?

    I've had this happen before.

    If you can't get into recovery, go back into ROM Manager. At the top hit Flash Clockwork Mod Recovery, it will come back with your phone model (Motorola Droid (CDMA)). Tap that, then it will verify the version of recovery, you'll see the little circle spinning in the top right corner. Then it should come back with OK.

    You may need to do this a few times until it responds quickly..like 3.5 seconds or so. Be patient with it....

    good luck

    Hey Kylo77

    I tried it to do that but only flashing two times in a row and then tried to boot in recovery with an bugless beast rom that i had saved but i was using rommanager but I would just get stuck at the moto logo on boot.

    should I keep repeating the flash and try it again?

    thanks

    Reboot the phone and let it sit for a few minutes and then try the recovery flash a few times. When this has happened to me I flashed (inside Rom Manager) like 3 or 4 times. The firs time will be slow as it is checking the database for the most recent version. Subsequent times should be faster.
