So, I jumped into the "root" pool today, only to have my phone now back to what appears to be out of the box condition. The screen came up with the "welcome to droid", to which I could not actually press the droid, so went with the 4 corner work around. I have no service and none of the downloads from prevoius are on the phone. Here is the information from the "about" menu:
Kernel Version: 184.108.40.206_slayher
Build #: FRG01B
When I reboot while holding down the "X" key, this is what is there;
Am I doomed? Is this fixable?
It seems that during the rooting process you wiped the data and cache.
You did not mention using Rom Manager but ClockWork Mod is the recovery process for Rom Manager.
I'm not clear -- can you boot the phone and access your apps? If so, and you have Rom Manager open and Download a Rom , install it and you should be fine.
You will need the premium version of RM.
Sounds like you also cleared baseband...

Thanks for the quick replies. I can get to the phone's apps, however, everything that I downloaded such as the Rom Manager(premium version) are gone. And of course, No Service to the phone.
look in the market under downloads.....are they reloading? it took a half an hour for all of my apps to redownload yesterday after I cleared data and cache..

OK guys. I went back to the Clockwork screen and ran Nandroid recovery link and am back at pre "root" time. Rom Manager Premium is installed and am going to try this download rom thing again.
Great! If you have wifi use it to download the rom it is faster which helps ensure a good download.
I realize I may be getting into a thread drift here, but, when I am trying to download the Lithium rom, I am asked to either make a backup or wipe cache, I chose make a backup. When the phone reboots, I am receiving a screen with a white trianlge with a yellow mark in the middle and a phone lying next to it. ???
It looks like you did not perform a wipe of data and cache so that may be the issue.
I've not tried Lithium so it may be their boot animation. Typically, when you install a new rom it may take several minutes to complete to process. If you feel that this is not the boot animation then I would go back into recovery restore the backup and start over. This time, tap the wipe button. Your call about doing another backup. I'm OCD about backups so I would.
