    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.

    try not doing the wipe after you install the rom..
    so..while in safe mode
    wipe data
    install rom
    reboot

    okay so this is angering me to the extreme. i really want to flash a working rom onto my phone but its not working. i can flash AXI0M D# cm9/kang 4.0.3 all fine and dandy but when it comes to any other (spearmint gummy, mavrom, cm9, aokp, cm 7.2.0) literally any rom out there, it wont flash past a black screen after it gives me the option. and yes ive looked all over these forums and i havnt found anyone with the problem i have. so if someone/anyone can help me i would be really appreciative.

    Verizon moto D3, 5.7.906, Stock rom hopefully not for much longer.

    what version of safestrap are you using?
    if your using 2.10 i would suggest going back to 1.08
    as 2.10 is built for kexec support so if your trying to run a non kexec rom you might run into problems

    Check out sd 5. 6 the ics rom. If your can flash it I would. It's sweet and has lots of tweeks and features! Just read the sticky Cus it's not 100 yet but good enough to be and every day rom
