    Question for those stuck on 'M' at boot

    I have a question for everyone stuck on the M at boot. I've noticed that there are a LOT of people out there getting stuck at the M on reboot after installing updates, especially to Froyo based ROMs.

    I've never had that happen before to me, but it happened last night to me. Here's what I think. Clockwork ROM Manager has a new feature where you can select to NOT see the status bars while the update is being applied. I selected that option last night, and got stuck at the M. Once I finally regained the ability to boot my phone, I de-selected that option, and my phone booted correctly and installed everything I tried to install.

    I went back in and re-selected the new option and started having problems getting stuck at the M again. I feel pretty confident in saying that the new option is causing the 'Stuck on M' problems, but I'd like to get more feedback from other users to see if this is a common issue in the phones that are getting stuck on the M. Please let me know.

    Koush, I'm not trying to make waves or infer there's a problem with ROM Manager, I just noticed a trend on my phone and wanted to track it down. I could just be all wrong, but I don't know yet.
    Loved my original Droid with a Sourcery ROM.
    Liked my Thunderbolt, but would have loved it with a Sourcery ROM.
    Love my Galaxy Nexus rocking a Sourcery ROM the most!

    I can boot to my current build, but I can't get to recovery either through Rom Manager or through power + x. When I try to get to recovery with power + x, it hangs at "M". Sort of frustrating as I've never had trouble getting into recovery and I'm sort of addicted to flashing new roms/themes. >.>

    Try to use ROM Manager to flash recovery again, I've noticed that when flashing froyo from ROM manager you have to go back to ROM manager and re-flash the custom recovery.

    I haven't ever had an issue with the "M" loops unless I don't wipe data. I'm pretty sure thats not your issue, but I haven't had issues with ROM Manager or what you have seen as of yet.
