OKay so my friend got a D2 and we rooted it and installed rom manager, flashed the new recovery to clock work and tried to install squidly using the update.zip method.
The probelm is that after it loaded the file and the text came up saying that it successfully installed now the phone wont load past the M and we cant get back to clockwork to try and mess with it either.
If you hold the up it does load the message that the boot loader is d2 somthing but thats all we can get it to do. :icon_eek:
I am only familiar with D1 stuff so someone please help
you obviously didn't read a HOW TO ROOT a droid 2 and install custom Rom's guide. ITS NOT THE SAME AS DROID1.
Follow that link on how to sbf. It's in the third post.
tappin and a talkin
Hmmm... update.zip method? Not familiar with that, you should have chose the option to install from sd card and navigated to the folder you downloaded it to and installed from there (after mounting system and data). Let us know what you figure out. See my thread about "I am a man who bricked my D2 and sbf didn't work). Before you do anything else though please make sure your battery is fully charged, if its not already too late.
"Bootloader begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern Time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug. Bootloader fights back."

have a good battery charge and sbf...if your batt is low take it to vz store & let em charge it(lol i went thru this TWICE, and was scared as hell that i bricked my d1 the 1st time, bc batt died during rsd flash)
Thanks to everyone who replied, even the people who literally added nothing with their posts :icon_eek:
Got it up and running again
