    Here's the story:

    I had a rooted 2.2 D1 running CM6 and I wanted to add a custom theme. I tried to install the theme using ROM Manager and Metamorph with no success. When I tried to boot into SPRecovery, the phone didn't take. So, I thought that I had to re-flash SPRecovery to the phone and took the necessary steps. This is when things went bad. The phone now locks up at the "unlock" screen, it says that everything on the phone must force close. I can boot into recovery mode and have tried clearing caches and all memory with no success. I would try to flash the rom again, but the "update.zip" file on the SD card is now the theme that I wanted to install and the SD card is in accessible unless it is mounted from the Droid. Does anyone have any suggestions on what my next steps should be? Thanks

    I suggest restoring. If that doesn't work go(in sprecovery) to partitions and connect your droid to computer. Hit enable usb mass storage. You can now put a rom update.zip in there and install it(make sure to wipe data & cache before)

    yes you are correct, can you go into recovery?, aka while the phone off you hold the X key and hold the power button until the menu pops up

    cool...now i just have to wait till my dad wakes up, swap out his battery and mine, and get to work on these options, cuz my battery is dead and it's really late here. You guys have been a great help. I'll try these in the morning and re-post with my findings. Thanks again.

    Hey guys! Good news. Fixed everything! Found an unroot file and it installed so I went back to stock. I'll just root it again later. Thank you both for all your help
