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!
