    Guess I deserve this for pressing ahead without really knowing what I'm doing.

    I'm an android noob, with a Droid (original, not X).

    I managed to install SPRecovery, then a rooted standard 2.1 rom, then CM508, RomManager, ClockworkModRecovery and even CM6RC1 without dramas.

    But I've really been wanting a low voltage kernel so tonight I tried that. Used RomManager to download & flash bekits low voltage, 7-slot, 1GHz kernel.

    My phone froze at the M screen for over half an hour on reboot.

    I did a battery pull, rebooted to recovery and restored with nandroid.

    Then I thought I'd try the 800MHz kernel instead. But when I tried, I discovered that RomManager will no longer reboot my phone. I get all the right prompts but it never reboots.

    So I manually rebooted to ClockworkMod and looked around but couldn't figure anything useful, so I let it reboot to the OS and fired up RomManager again. Thought I might try to reflash ClockworkMod (just grasping at straws) but when I did, after a bit it threw a dialog box saying "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged command!"

    Really? Did I somehow unroot myself? I did not restore an unrooted ROM. I restored the CM6RC1 I was running just an hour ago.

    So anyone want to tell me what I did wrong. And, more importantly, what my next step is?

    You had a response to this thread on the cyanogenmod forum, also check at the top there for the issues with SuperUser 2.2.2, you may be suffering from that issue which is an easy fix.
