    Rooted my 2.2 tonight using the easy root method.
    Downloaded the Premium ROM Manager
    Tried to install the Simply Stunning ROM
    Seemed to be "OK", but when it boots i get the following:

    Droid logo
    A "blue" eye
    then a nice light show that forms an "X".
    repeats

    I've tried everything i've read so far to get it into "recovery" mode. Pulling the battery does not help.

    Any ideas / help?

    try doing a wipe data/cache then reinstalling what you had. but make a backup first if you want to go back

    i can't get into a boot loader (or else i completely forgot how). All it does is the boot loop. Simple directions on the wipe?

    You may have to SBF it. Plug in the phone to your computer and turn it on

    Download the motorola tools first though

    Hold down X while rebooting, and don't let go of X, until you are in the recovery screen. Follow the prompts to do the recovery of your backup.

    sbf directions in the 3rd link of my signature. As is how to back up your phone. As well as how to easily install any of the roms here on this forum in the roms section.

    what prompts?: 3rd link, bottom of the first post, see the screenshot that has an option for "backup/restore"? That would be a good place to go to backup and restore your phone. The screen for Clockwork will be different but there also is a place to restore your backups in that app if that is the recovery tool you are using. You then select the file you made for your backup, and restore it.

    Or if starting over:

    rsd lite > sbf sprecovery using the directions > flash your rom with sprecovery using the directions. Most roms tell you to wipe data and cache before flashing the rom. Not a bad idea.

    As for will it work? I do try and give good help ;)
