    Why do you want a screenshot? they usually take about 10-20 minutes for me. It all depends on your link speed.

    this does not directly answer your question, but from your question it would seem that you're relatively new to the custom rom scene. so, i thought i would offer some advice, based on personal experience - fwiw.

    i never use RM to dl roms. RM can be a little glitchy, and you are installing a whole OS on your phone, so everything HAS to go right. i ALWAYS dl the rom using my pc, and then put/copy it to my sdcard. then, i boot into recovery, and manually wipe and install the rom. i think if you look around, you will see that most people, and certainly the "experienced" ones, do it this way.

    don't get me wrong - RM is a great app, and has some very useful features. but for the dl and initial install of a rom, i personally don't think it's the way to go. in fact, i would say that taking an hour to dl a rom should tell you whether it's the wisest choice.

    Downloading from your computer or downloading from the web on your phone to your sdcard is the best way. Downloading from rm is the glitchy way.

    Get the droid forums app. Find a rom from custom roms section. Download to sdcard card. Then flash and boot into recovery.

    Then if using clockwork recovery wipe and then install zip from sdcard. Find file where ever it is saved and install.

    Well it looks like I'm in the minority here. I use ROM manager exclusively to download all of the ROMS I've had and experienced no problems. 3G and wifi both download in 10-15 minutes (I usually don't watch and time it. I start it, plug phone into charger and come back to see if its done). Usually by the time I get back to it, its in the middle of the install. BTW, flash is slang for install. The amount of time its taking could be why the ROMS you are downloading aren't working for you. This is my two cents worth of experience and there are several more friends here on the forums that are better at this than I am. Good luck and happy mod'ing :-)
