What steps did you follow to install the ROM? And are you sure it was for the correct device?
I downloaded the Rom Manager Premium, selected Download mod, selected CyanogenMod, then it gave me a list. First I chose 7.1.0 because the dev's website said it was stable for the original Droid. That boot looped me. Then I went to my backup, and repeated the process. This time I selected 7.0.3, also listed as a "stable release" .
Boot loop again.
Do I even need Cyanogen to overclock? What I've read so far has left me a little unclear.
OK, since I last posted I've got it running in (it says) ultra low voltage at 1.0Ghz. I've got my wifi tether going, very cool.
It's a Chevy kernel, basically just for overclocking from what I read about it. I'd like to change the appearance a bit now, do I need something like Cyanogen for that, or do I now just basically have a lot more themes available to me?
I tried 3 different Cyanogen installs, all have failed. The Chevy kernel went right in and worked perfectly. Now I have this configuration backed up along with my stock configuration.
Chevy and Cyanogen... apples and oranges? Kernel vs... what? Is Cyanogen just a mod I install over the kernel?
yes, I followed Guidot's guide the first three times with Cyanogen, and I did the 3 latest versions, in order from newest to oldest. They all just boot looped and I had to pull the battery each time.
Chevy's went in without a fuss using the same method. This is all fine and well, I guess it's really just some theme variation I'm looking for now.
