    Hey guys im sure this has been gone over a billion times some where if some one could give me a link it would be great.

    Well here it is im new to the whole rooted thing and while it did take me awile i did finally get it i was mainly after the wifi. But then i started seeing all these Roms and wanted one did alot of looking around found that Rom Manager was the way to go i got it (The Paid one) installed cw 3.1.0.2 and went to dl a rom i was trying to go with Droid Concepts one build 9 it is. Well it would dl but when i went to reboot it would give me the ! with droid pic did some reading some said to try to flash cw a few more times did it went to boot and it worked but then got stuck at the m logo so i went into cw recovery and did a restore and am now back up and running but still no Rom what can i do to make this happen? Is it just the one im after or something more than that?
    Thanks for any help in advance.

    I had this happen with DC also. Just flash it manually. Boot to cm recovery, wipe partitions, then install zip from SD card. The zips rm downloaded will be in the DC folder in the clockworkmod folder on your SD card.

    Should have loaded in 5 minutes or less. Try going into clockworkmod recovery manually, wipe data 3x, cache 3x, then go into partions menu and wipe cache partion 3x. After that, try reinstalling the rom.

    Your apps from the market should redownload once you sign in to your Google account

    Your welcome, now that you have a custom rom installed, you should get titanium backup from the market. This will back up your apps and data onto your SD card so that when you Chanel roms, you can restore all your apps. Don't restore system apps though as this may cause problems.

    Should have seen the sign in when you first installed your rom, but if not, go to accounts and sync under settings.
