    try booting into recovery. Power button (while off) + x. That should get you into the recovery menu and from there try to load one of your backups.

    Edit: Hold power +x until a menu comes up. I have read people saying once the M comes up let go but I prefer to hold it until I see the recovery menu. Also when the menu comes up you go to Nandroid then restore. Then choose your most recent backup and load it up. When it is done choose reboot.
    Edit 2: Also the power button acts as the back button when in recovery.

    There's always a chance, Doctor, as long as one can think.

    I hope you have a backup to recover from. What exactly were you trying to do in ROM Manager?

    So as to keep it simple, let's start from the top:
    When you chose to flash the ROM, did you choose the "Create Backup" option?

    rom manager or clockwork was acting screwy for me too. i've been putting rom's on my phone for like 7-8 months now, so i know all the tricks. but when i tried putting different roms on my phone with clockwork recently, in the past week or 2, every rom was buggy as hell. either i would get a boot loop or the rom would freeze up, crash and randomly reboot. nothing would work. i finally switched back to sprecovery and never had any problems since. too bad, i really liked rom manager. it really made things so much easier and was getting used to using it too.
