    I killed my Droid?

    Hello Rescue Squad,

    I THOUGHT that I killed my Droid.

    Happy to say that I was able to change this email from KILLED to THOUGHT that I did.

    Rooted with Sapphire and all was going very well until it went into a loop with ROM Manager. The loop started when ROM Manager was updating endlessly.

    I pulled the battery.

    I went to the Nandroid restore screen, but the restores didn't fix the phone. On reboot, I was in a loop with the Motorola emblem flashing still.

    A reset to factory did not work.

    Because the last update.zip was Sapphire google apps, I used sprecovery to mount the SD card, reinstalled Sapphire as the update.zip and went through the rooting procedure again.

    I rebooted and it worked. Thanks to all who have contributed so much in these forums, that I was able to read through the posts and bumble through to fix the problem. I don't however recommend the steps that I took as I am no expert.

    Now however, I tried to Nandroid a backup and it was stuck on a tar dump.

    I will get it figured out one of these days.

    Thanks again for the helpful forum posts!

    to the forum nyc! Sprecovery wins again!! This new backup you're trying to do......are you trying to do it with rom manager or sprecovery?

    If you like my work and would like to help get my nails done I'd love it!

    Thanks Corinacakes!

    I got the backup to go through with RomManager. I rebooted and it got past the tar dump.

    Seems to be working fine now except I'm watching WI FI connectivity closely.
