    Rule number one, NEVER let rom manager install stuff!

    You may need to boot in recovery manually and clear data

    With phone off, turn back on holding down "x" button. Keep it held down till you see a triangle with ! Inside. Then hit the search button left of the space and clear data/factory reset then reboot. That should fix it

    Is your phone a Droid 2 or Global?

    You need to use d2 bootstrap to get into clockwork recovery and install a rom on the d2 unless you're on a 2nd init rom like cm7. That's why it didn't work. Don't use rom manager. In the future, just do it manually.

    You'll have to sbf now.

    http://db.tt/7Sq4K6z <---- sbf file you will need
    http://db.tt/G8OWmpPO <---- rsd lite you will need

    Install rsd on computer. Put phone in bootloader by holding up button and power button when turning on. Plug phone to pc with data cable. Push the "..." button. Find sbf file you downloaded and push start

    Sometimes sbfing will bootloop at end. If that happens, boot in recovery manually and clear data/factory reset and it will be all good
