    So my phone has the recent update and today I decided to root it because I wanted all the cool features. I used the one click root method and successfully got it to be rooted because I saw the super icon user. I decided to use some kind of program from the market clock something...backed it up...installed a custom rom...then BAM im stuck in the reboot and it loops all over again...I am able to go through recovery...wiped it doesn't work
    2. I used the rsd lite 4.5.3 and im using some kind of sbf file dont know which one is the latest but used about three....it fails (i installed the 64 bit) when loading up to the bootloader all I see is 2C.7C HELP PLEASE?!!? am i DOOMED?!?!

    Droid 1 requires a version of RSD Lite that's a little more recent than the one you're using. 4.6 at a minimum.

    Did you wipe before installing the ROM? What app did you use to root? What SBF are you using? What error did you get?

    A little more information from you might get more useful replies. :) But don't panic, I'm here to help.

    I actually used the files from here

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/te...oot-loader-possible-bricked-phone-help-4.html

    When connected to RSD Lite my device properties all say N/A
    and putting in the file and starting the process it says FAIL
    -I wiped everything I can see from the recovery mode
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    wipe baseband data
    -I even removed my SD card cause im reading other forums about them but still doesn't work
    To root my device I used Super One Click

    Okay. First off, stop doing anything. You've already seriously screwed up your phone. Wiping baseband data was VERY BAD.

    Next up, how familiar are you with flashing SBF files? Because you're going to need to.

    Close enough for now. This is RSD Lite 4.6 http://androidoverdrive.com/downloads/RSDLite4.6.7z

    That's a 7zip file. Do you have 7zip? If not you should. It's awesome and it's free.

    7-Zip

    Next up, we'll try the FRG22D SBF. Got that handy? Good.

    Skim the OP here, there's some stuff you'll want to know to make sure things go off without a hitch. Let me know if you need a file, something doesn't work, you're confused about something, or if you're ready to proceed.

    Read the first post in that thread I linked you to. It tells you everything you need to know and tells you why you want to make sure it gets a PASS... And why you have to be paying attention to it. :)

    Good luck tomorrow.

    You used ROM Manager. That's how you messed up in the first place. Screwing around in recovery without knowing what to do is how you bricked it. Now you know better, so no real harm done, right? :)

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    First off, are you doing a factory reset before installing a ROM? Secondly, are you installing a theme specifically designed for your ROM?

    Nibblit, it's @furryvarmint over on the tweety-twit-twit thingie.
