    I recently root my Droid running 2.2. I download ROM Manager premium and downloaded a Rom. Now when I try to turn on my phone I get the motorola symbol, then a black glowing screen. If anyone can help it be great I've tried everything form a complete factory reset to a sprecovery. Although I couldnt find a recovery for 2.2. I really don't want to take her back to the store. thanks to anyone that can help

    If you can see the M and/or get into recovery, you're not bricked.

    When you first installed rom manager, did it install clockwork recovery for you? That's what it used to do, but I haven't used it in quite a while.

    More help will come in this section, but I'll start with some basic questions in the meantime to speed up the process.

    To avoid confusion, I'll add to your other thread on this topic.

    Ok from my experience I can give a little advice...

    First off, find yourself a STOCK ROM SBF. I chose 2.1-update1 because that's what came on my phone when I bought it. Then I changed over to an unofficial rooted 2.2 stock rom

    Download RSD Light and flash your phone w/ that stock setup.

    Now you should have a functioning phone again...

    Next, follow this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    That worked for me perfectly.

    From now on, every time you're about to flash something or install something or make some big change.... MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP. No matter how stupid you may think it is...they can save your arse if something screws up :)
