    I have the Droid I running Pete's Bugless Beast v0.4. My kernel is: 2.6.32.9-g103d848 android-build@apa26 #1 overclocked to 1gig. Baseband version is C_01.43.01 P. I have the Watermark theme as well.

    I have Rom Manager and have been able to install a few roms and themes up until putting BB on. Now when I download a new rom and step through the reboot process all my phone does is that, it just reboots without installing the rom. I have even tried to reboot into safe mode manually but it just hangs on the Motorola M. When I let the buttons go it will eventually reboot back into BB. I even tried to restore an older backed up rom but that gave the same results.

    Did Pete play a trick on me or is my phone hosed?

    Check and make sure you haven't lost root. I had the same problem and for some reason ROM manger lost root privileges. I also had to flash to SPR then back to clockwork

    Did you try flashing to SPR then right back to Clockwork? This about I can offer, I'm rather new to all this.

    this is a simple fix no worries, just the version of clockwork is faulty and incompatible with your phone

    just flash an older recovery thats what happens all the time using rom manager, when i find one that works i keep it and never update it

    It looks like the SPR recovery worked, thanks.
