    Semi Bricked - Need Help!

    Messed up pretty good somehow... I'll try to keep this short...
    -Originaly running DM1.0 for a few months, wanted a change
    -Installed Rom Manager, flashed CM with Jrummy, worked great
    -Switched to BBv1.0, liked this one too but wanted change
    -Tried to flash UD New Era and Redrum 1.3... Rom Manager was giving me error (AN ERROR OCCURED TRYING TO RUN PRIVILIGED COMMANDS). Could not do anything in Rom Mgr without getting that error. Tried uninstall/reinstall Rom Mgr... no dice. Not even Clockwork Recovery
    -Booted into maintenance mode and did a nandroid backup from 2 weeks ago. This resulted in a DroidMod boot-loop.. basically just flashing the DroidMod emblem slowely, not getting any further.
    -Booted into maintenance mode and reluctently did a factory reset/wipe.
    -This worked fine, until I tried to sign into Gmail... it tells me I don't have suffecient signal, even though I do. I can browse the internet via google. 3G bars galore. Flashes 3G bars until I hit go to connect to sync gmail..
    -Called Verizon to make sure data was still turned on... Data plan is in place and acct should be fine. Troubleshooting with Tech did nothing. Be basically stated the worse case scenario would be factory reset, which I've allready done.
    -Figured maybe it was 3G somehow, got home and tried to connect to wifi... it see's my router, but will not connect... grr...

    So, there ya have it.... phone workes fine to make calls, and browse most sites (besides google)... but its pretty much worthless without sync to google...... HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GO RED WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Link 3 in my sig? Back to stock, see how it works, then root again?

    If you have other nandroid backups you could try those first.
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    If I were you, don't call Verizon unless it's a last resort. They could get suspicious and void your warranty. Not fun. Just post here and I am sure you will get help that not one Verizon rep could give.

    Thanks for the advice... I will do that in the future, as I seem to be vary apt at breaking electronics... Ok, trying to root using the guide in Christim's link. I DL'd Petes file and renamed it, unmounted then tryed to reboot in recovery. I hold X while booting up, but I get a triangle with a question mark in it in front of a droid. I don't get the options... what am I doing wrong?

    Hold up on the volume rocker, then press the camera button.

    ^^ ok that worked.. you might want Christim to update his steps to include that. Also his step that says "install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated)" actually says "apply sdcard/update.zip"... Small things, but when your dealing with people that aren't as tech savvy as you, being specific counts...

    Re: Semi Bricked - Need Help!

    Christims guide is refering to sprecovery, which you don't have. You won't be able to root 2.1 without it.

    ok... well, I think now the issue lies with Rom Manager... I rooted using Christim's guide successfully. I'm not getting the privilige error from Rom Mgr anymore... but I try to load 2 different Roms and they loaded.... then went into boot loop after install. Droid emblem, then red eye... then black, droid emblem, then red eye..... over and over.... New Roms only result in boot loops... Can you guys help me or is there a Rom Manager tech support?
