    first off, welcome to the forum! :)

    can you manually boot into recovery?? in other words, pull your batt to stop the boot loop; put batt back in; manually boot into recovery by holding the "x" key and power button (release power button after screen comes on, but keep holding x until recovery screen pops up). if you've drained a lot of batt, you may need to charge your batt for a while, until you have at least a 60% charge.

    if you can get to recovery screen, connect phone to pc with usb cable, go into partitions menu, choose "mount usb storage," and then re-dl rom to your sdcard using your pc (dl'ing a rom thru RM is not always reliable). then try to reflash the rom.

    tell me exactly what happens. when you try to reboot, do you get the Moto logo, and then the boot animation? what happens next?? if your boot animation just sits there for a while, that's not unusual - the initial boot for a rom usually takes a while. but, if you get the M logo, then the BA, and then it goes back to the M logo, then you may have an install issue that we will need to work thru.

    also, please list the exact steps you followed to dl and install and attempt to boot up your rom.

    ok well it sits at the BA forever, nothing ever passes it...but it doesnt go to the moto logo,

    open rom manager,
    open cyanogen mod ( latest stable rom )
    install ^ and google apps
    go to notification bar once its finished dl
    click on it and run back up
    it goes to the bootloader and loads op the rom
    then once its finished it reboots and it sits there for a very long time

    did you check the boxes for wiping data and cache??

    what i would recommend is that you stop using RM to dl and install your rom. i can't even begin to tell you how many times RM is the problem in the install process. in fact, i am going to just cut and paste a post i made only within the last hour on this very topic:

    you'll get better results by manually flashing in recovery, instead of thru RM. i always, and i mean ALWAYS, manually flash thru recovery. RM has some great uses, but it can be glitchy when it comes to dl'ing and installing roms. and, because you are essentially putting on a whole new OS, you want the process to be glitch free! i ALWAYS use my pc to dl the rom and then put it on my sdcard (and don't dl thru RM). then, here is the process i follow, and it never fails me:

    1. backup your apps with TiBu (or thru Astro)
    2. create a backup/nandroid of your current rom (so you have something to fall back on if you experience any serious problems flashing a new rom)
    3. boot into recovery
    4. wipe data/factory reset
    5. wipe cache
    6. go into partitions menu, and format boot and format system.
    7. install rom zip from sdcard
    8. reboot
    IMPORTANT – after you sign into Google, and Google syncs all of your data, do not use your phone until the market completely downloads all your apps. let it complete the process before flashing any themes, kernels, whatever
    9. boot into recovery
    10. flash theme (if you desire something other than stock)
    11. reboot
    12. boot into recovery
    13. flash kernel (if you want something other than the stock kernel)
    14. reboot
    15. enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum. Since your trying to install CM, the easiest way I've found to overclock is to follow the link in my sig. Also, I suggest getting SetCPU from the market.

    let's get your rom installed, and up and running first. themes and kernels are just add-ons that are nice to have - they're not necessities.

    themes just change the look/appearance of your phone - they don't change the operations. a kernel is more important than the theme, and there are various ones to choose from. they are like a rom - each one runs differently on each individual phone. you just have to find the one that runs the best on your phone. the ones i recommend are: Raidzero, SlaYHer, Chevy, and p3.

    but again, we first have to get the rom successfully installed and running.
