    CM7 Boot Loop

    I just tried installing CM7 GB on my droid 2 running stock verizon froyo. My phone was rooted with z4root and had clockwork installed. I created a backup. I then downloaded CM7 GB through ROM Manager, proceeded through the install, but when the phone rebooted I'm stuck with a replay loop of the CM7 animation.

    Booting into recover (pwr + up arrow) lands me in the stock recovery screen, not clockwork mod, so I don't see the option to restore a backup.

    Please help.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but for cm7gb you need to be on rooted .602. That's what I needed to do for my dx.

    droidx2.3.3 your right except for the version number. You need to be on either 4.5.606 ( two part file to root) 4.5.607 (use Droid3 v7 root method)

    After you have upgraded to GB you can then perform the steps to install it.

    if you have adb install you can do:
    adb shell "echo 1 > /data/.recovery_mode; sync;"
    adb reboot
    to get into CWM
    ( thanks to rev numbers)

    I did a wipe of user data and was able to successfully launch CM7.

    The one remaining question I had was why I'm unable to boot directly into CWM with the key combination (x + PWR)? This boots into the stock recovery mode, without the option for restoring. The only way I can get into CWM is through Bootstrap Recovery, however this isn't (and wasn't) an option when my phone was stuck in the boot loop.

    Remember, every time you flash a Rom, you must do a factory reset, wipe cache, and wipe dalvic cache.

    The fact that you booted into CWR is actually a fluke, it should have booted you into stock recovery. I have found that if you boot loop it, and don't fool with anything else, then you can do a factory reset, and wipe cache, and it lets you work from there. If that doesn't work, SBF is a good bet!
    If you need any help, feel free to PM me, I'm glad to help where I can!

    install androidsdk

    adb shell "echo 1 > /data/.recovery_mode; sync;"
    adb reboot

    boots back into cwm

    to use new cm7, make sure you have GB kernel---( moto logo is in red when booting)
