    I followed the directions on theunlockr.com. I wiped factory data, then i wiped factory cache, then i installed ROM from sd card, then i rebooted phone and this motorola logo has been up for the past 30 minutes

    If you have a backup, restore it through recovery. If its still stuck at the logo you'll have to pull the battery, then replace it, and use power + X to get into recovery.

    If you dont have a backup, there should be an option to mount your sd to a usb in recovery, then load another rom. Make sure you fully wipe then install the rom.

    Or get to recovery, do a full wipe then re-install the same rom.

    Sounds like your in the stock recovery. Did you install a custom recovery? I'm not familiar with the theunlockr.com root method.

    But you dont have a custom recovery. Sounds like you didnt catch the boot, but use this method http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html, that will give you a custom recovery that will stick. After that you should be good to go. If you have any questions about that process, just post them in that thread. There's a lot of helpful people there:)

    BTW, Welcome to the forum.

    You need to sbf recovery on. Please don't double post. Especially in a root method that is 100 pages long that you didn't use.

    It is the file in root your Droid regardless of OS.

    Recovery only sbf in the OP.

    You should be in the bootloader not recovery to flash the sbf. With the phone off, press power + up, on the directional pad, to get to the bootloader.
