    I ask because that happened to me with my droid X. I see you have an original Droid. Well what worked for me(through tips from the forums of course), was to go the stock recovery and hit factory reset, and also wipe data.

    Bootloops drive everybody crazy. It's happened to me twice with my X. One while switching between roms ( had to sbf to stock), and one after sbf. But with all the master droids in here, it's all good.

    Guys, they bootloop generally because your cache reads as a different system version than the SBF file (i.e., you've gotten the latest update). 99% of the time, clearing the cache (which you can do BEFORE you SBF) takes care of the bootloop issue. At least, that's what I've found (I've done it 5 or 6 times so far, and it's worked 100% of the time, but I have to leave room for outliers haha).

    Well actually I got into a bootloop while flashing a rom and I did clear the cache, but I still got stuck.

    He asked why he was bootlooping after an SBF, and I answered his question... your experience with a bootloop after flashing a ROM is completely irrelevant to the discussion.
