    So im going to try to make this simple. I've tried to flash SpearmintGumD3 Using CWM with bootstraped recovery. I used to get an error message saying that the signature was not verified, and now its going through okay but i can't get pasted the moto screen after reboot. the steps i did were... 1. Wipe Data/Factory Reset 3 times, 2. Wipe Cache Partition, 3. Install .zip from SD, 4. Reboot. and ive also tried... 1. Mount system, 2. Wipe Data/Factory Reset, 3. Remount system, 4. Wipe Cache Partition, 5. Remount system again, 6. Install .zip from SD, 7. Wipe Data/Factory Reset. Every time i do either one or simply try to just install the zip without wiping anything i still cannot get past the Moto screen after rebooting my system. can anyone help me on this? am i doing something wrong? and i missing any steps or doing too many? im using moto D3 on 2.3.4 verizon stock rom 5.6.890 XT862. If someone can help me as soon as possible i would really appreciate it.

    have you tried flashing any other ROMs?

    This one was ported from Bionic and the dev stated he hadn't tried it, but heard that it worked. I also don't see any support posts since April.

    i'll try to simplify it.

    prefer safestrap (currrent ver 2.10) over bootstrap. read guidot's guide for use as it is a bit different
    enter recovery.
    mounts -->format /system x3
    wipe data.factory reset x3
    advanced -->wipe dalvik cache x3
    flash ROM
    wipe data.factory reset x1
    wipe cache X1
    reboot

    "enter recovery.

    wipe data.factory reset x3
    advanced -->wipe dalvik cache x3
    flash ROM
    wipe data.factory reset x1
    wipe cache X1
    reboot"

    would this work for any rom?

    What do you mean by stuck? And where you in non-safe or safe mode?

    i was in safe mode. i rebooted then went back into recovery with safe mode on. then i followed the steps then it went past the recovery option while booting and it wouldnt do anything past that. i say probably for a good 2 hours after i tried again.

    Only thing I can recommend is to use safestrap instead. It seems to play nice with D3...but I absolutely hate the fact that I can't flash over official vzw fw!

    I have had this also. Here was my fix (workaround)
    Install rom and wipe everything as instructed.
    If stuck on the black screen, pull the battery then power on the phone.

    It sounds simple but this has worked for me. Almost everytime I wipe the dalvic cache i get the black screen your talking about.
    Hope it helps.

    This can also happen if you chose "reboot" before flashing. before flashing, I always choose "Power off" then manually power on before flashing.
