    ROM Manager inhibits fresh installs?

    Does anyone else feel this way? I mean like last night i was using ROM manager just to test out some ROMs (Bugless, Smoked Glass) and such, but when i tried to update.zip back my Ultimate Droid 9.8 i wiped data and cache and installed correctly but its like i still had Smoked Glass, no NexTheme wallpaper, it was pretty much the same as if i hadnt done anything and now im thinking somethings hidden on my SD that could be causing it, so im about to format it through the Droid (after i backup everything i want to keep), i just thought i might as well come on here and tell you guys about it and hear your opinions before i do it and risk F-ing up my ish lol, its not like i NEED to flash, the phone is working perfectly, but i am getting some force closes i hadnt before. All in all its not a problem, but im just the kind of person that gets OCD about my software not being completely clean and efficient you know?

    I've not used ROM manager so my thoughts may be off base. I doubt that something is hidden on your SD card. If you haven't reformated your SD card, I would flash a different rom and see if everything works. If it does then flash another. If you successfully install then the issue is with the UD rom.

    This is a case of a ROM breaking root. It happens. I've have older versions of BB and UD break root on me. Flash another ROM try using nandroid method. If not comfortable with that we can walk ya through it.

    its easy if you use clockwork download the nandroid backup and put it in clockwork>backups folder, then boot into recovery (hold x then power on) wipe date and cache then go to nandroid>advanced nandroid restore>choose the nandroid you just added>perform restore

    in sprecovery just make a folder named nandroid on the root of your sdcard and put the nandroid backup in there, boot into recovery, wipe, select backup/restore>advanced nandroid restore>choose backup to restore>select the nandroid you jsut added>perform restore

    this is a basic basic guide if you dont get what im saying im sure someone will link to an in depth guide

    I would try to throttle back your OC kernel. That may be causing some of your issues.
