    Ok, so I finally tried to ROOT my Moto D1. I Rooted it successfully, and installed FREE ROM Manager in the Marketplace. I opened it, and then downloaded the first theme that was an option. It then went into Clockwork recovery mode, and then the screen went black. The Motorola logo then showed up like my phone was booting on, and then the "DROID" wording showed. Next the Droid eye came up, and began to pulsate, like everytime you boot up the phone. But now, my Phone just keeps on continuously going back and forth from the "DROID" and Red Eye logos. It doesn't stop. Has anyone every had this problem before? Any pointers or tips for the Newb? HELP ASAP would be much appreciated.

    Did you install a rom first? If so, is the theme compatible with the rom?

    I'm not too sure.. All I saw of the name of the thing I installed was A Glass Theme. That's it.

    My sense is you did not.
    Did you make a backup after rooting and prior to installing the theme? If so, pull the battery and go back into clockwork. Restore the backup then boot and open RM and install a rom. Since you have the free version I believe you are limited to installing the Cyanogen rom.

    I did not make a backup. Does this mean I'm screwed? :blackdroid:

    Not yet! How did you root your phone? Did you install SPR?

    Pull the battery then try to boot into recovery. Let me know .

    I used the latest article on DROIDLIFE.COM:
    How to: Root Android 2.2 for the Motorola DROID

    But I did just the first part.

    I pulled the battery out, and put it back in and turned the phone on again several times but it is still cycling the "Droid" and the Red Eye. How do I put it into recovery?

    I am clueless and scared at this point. :icon_eek:

    Turn the phone off, pull the battery. Wait about one minute and replace the battery.

    Open the slider and press the "X" key and power key at the same time.

    Let me know what happens.

    OK. I turned off the phone, and then I held the power up button and the 'x' button on the phone and I put it into Clockwork Recovery Mode.

    The options are:
    -reboot system now
    -apply sd card:update.zip
    -wipe data/factory reset
    -wipe cache partition
    -install zip from sd card
    -nandroid
    -partitions menu
    -advanced

    Now what?

    My sense is you download a rom, mount the phone, copy to SD card wipe and install zip from SD card.

    I've contacted another member of the rescue squad who has more experience with RM. She will have a better sense than me.

    Hi, Mike asked me to see if I can help you....... A couple of questions to bring me up to speed..... You say you downloaded the free ROM Manager, did you also download the paid version??? How did you download the theme???

    For starters, clear your ROM Manager download cache. To do this go into RM hit the menu key then hit "clear download cache"
