    Well, it sounds like you can still boot into recovery. Restore the back up you made.

    You did make a back up, correct?

    sorry about that post i tried to delete it. for the backup. i think i backed it up but everytime i backed it up it goes back to the same screen and loops. i did factory reset also now because i thought that would work. but it didnt. i have backup files from when i backed up when i had Clockwork. is there a way to restore those backup files?

    Loop reboot

    Sorry for the dead link . Here what I did up to step 7:
    1) Reboot into recovery (ClockworkMod Preferepably)

    NOTE: If you haven't already done a backup...do one now. I always perform my backups via ROM Manager so I can properly label my backups. If you need to do a backup at this point it will work exactly the same way but it names your backup with time and date information (you can rename the file later)

    Here's how to create a backup in ClockworkMod Recovery
    From the main recovery screen, go to: Nandroid and then select "Backup"

    2) Select "wipe data/factory reset" - This will actually format your Data, Cache, and SD-ext partitions

    3) Go into the "partitions menu"

    4) Format "Boot"

    5) Format "System"

    6) Go back to the main screen (power button backs you out to the previous menu)

    7) Install zip from sdcard

    8) Choose zip from sdcard
    ?
    9) navigate to where you have stored the zip file and select it (no need to rename the file)

    I am stuck at Clockwork Recovery main green screen and don't know where to go now
    Also I was wandering can I do download from ROM manager?
