    Ok so I did the OTA update to 2.2 and then decided to root my droid with easyroot and it worked perfectly. i was enjoying wifi tethering and overclocking and such. Then i got curious about flashing roms. This is where I went wrong. Being a noob, I downloaded rom manager and i guess i downloaded a rom from rom manager and tried to flash it. after i did this, when my phone rebooted, it only shows the 'm' logo infinitely unless i hold down x or up on the dpad. i can still access the android system recovery menu. i have tried to download a few things to the sd card and renamed them to 'update' to apply the update. it says finding, opening, verifying, but then it says 'failed to verify whole file signature' and 'signature verification failed' and then 'installation aborted'. i am sorry for the terribly vague description of what i have done to my phone but if there is any hope for me getting this thing to work again, please please help.

    check out link one to restore a stock image to your phone

    sounds like you forgot to flash an alternate recovery method

    you just need to download the 2.2 update.zip file and place it to the root of course and apply it and you will be all set

    abe, i'm trying that right now. phone needs to charge a bit though because now it's totally dead. thanks for shooting me in the right direction, i'll let you know how it turns out

    vampyricdroid, thanks for your input also. I have tried a few times to do a 2.2 update and have been unsuccessful. maybe i'm downloading the wrong thing. either way, if abe's way doesnt work, im going to look harder for a good 2.2 download. do you have any links?

    very good observation. you can do this and it should fix it since you dont have an alternate recovery installed it wont block it
