    did you wipe completely before installing? and how long did you wait for the boot animation to finish? the first boot takes a while

    You could try to factory reset by holding the home button when you turn the phone on then releasing it at the M logo, then reinstall whatever rom it was and make sure to wipe data and cache!

    Hope this helps!

    Clockwork... did you do 3-4?

    Select "wipe data/factory reset" - Thiswill 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

    If you're stuck in a bootloop, pull the battery. You may need to alternate between clockwork and alternate recovery a few times to get clockwork recovery to take. Then boot into recovery and follow thadroidz directions above.

    Hope this helps!
