    Yesterday, I decided to switch roms from golden elegance lithium to UD 7. After this point all is good. Reason I switched was because the first rom grew to be very laggy, not sure if this is related to my problem, but I thought I would mention it.

    After UD 7 installed successfully I went to install the red rum 2 theme. BTW I used clockwork mod for all of these steps. After install was complete, I attempted to reboot. The phone got past the M logo, but barely would start to draw in "droid" during the animation, literally only a few pixels would show, than repeat.

    At first I was able to go into recovery and wipe cache and restore factory settings. I did this several times, having to pull my battery to turn off phone every time. The reboot would not progress any further than before.

    At this point I can't return to recovery (X + Power), but I can get to the bootloader. All it says is "Files Corrupted", "Cannot Program".

    I attempted to use RSD Lite to flash the 2.01 .sbf file, but RSD wouldn't recognize my device, even with the bootloader screen showing.

    I have already gone to Verizon and have a refurbed droid on the way. Beyond that is there anything I can do to restore my current droid?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I believe I installed the 64-bit drivers when I first rooted the phone. Should I try reinstalling them?

    UD 7 only officially supports SP Recovery. I got stuck in a boot loop when trying to flash it from Rom Manager. I was able to get back into recovery mode and re-flash.

    The Ultimate Droid dev team have flat out said ROM Manager and their ROM are not and never will be compatible.
