    Pros:
    Unlimited customization;
    Performance tuning;

    Cons:
    You are going to spend a lot more time on the phone. You are going to struggle with different temptations and your satisfaction may vary.

    Yes boot loop does not mean bricked. You can fix a boot loop.

    I got stuck at the M last night. Just sitting there. Battery pull and stuck at the M. Then for no reason it just started booting up. Weird.

    I guess I should add that I was doing a restore to the current OS for D2 and did not do a wipe.

    I had like a 20 minute m logo one time because I believe I lost recovery. I plugged into charger and it eventually booted on its own. Never have had it happen again.

    you need to boot into recovery manually by holding power button and x. If it doesnt work pull battery out and then hold power button and x, while putting battery back in. See if this gets you into recovery. If you get into recovery go to nandroid and restore a backup.

    Were you sure you were rooted with superuser and clockwork mod before you tried to flashing the rom? When you rooted did you make your first nandroid backup? How did you try to install the rom? Also UD 2.5 should be a zip file that is 87.77 M, did it download in its entirety?

    i did the rooting from the directions give in the link posted earlier. i made a nandroid back up.
    i made the ultimate droid zip file "update.zip" and installed it from teh recovery menu the update.zip ( depreicated ) thing.
    and it was the full file of it. i am sure i screwed up some where though. gotta love a beginner lol


    thats what i had done.
    luckily i was able to get to the back up and got it back and up running but not withthe rom

    Make sure the file size of UD is 87.77 M. You don't have 2 zip extensions on the end of the ud file correct (update.zip.zip)? Let me see what else I can figure out here...
