    So I was using sholes app for rooting, all went well, rooted, went into SPRecovery and was at the step

    Decompressing ROM...

    Was at this step for 40 minutes or so and was told this was definitely not normal, so I had to battery pull.

    Now I get stuck on a few steps before that at

    Attempting Nandroid backup...
    Dumping system.tar

    And it only loads a bit more than halfway and freezes there, before it passed that and the next step and that's when it was on Decompressing forever, but now it won't even get passed this step...


    Help please. There seems to be NOBODY in the other topic to help.

    take your SD card out, load a rom on it without the droid, put it back in the droid, boot into recovery, boot that new ROM.

    You should delete or rename any other update.zip files before you move the bb 7.4 update.zip onto your sdcard
