    ok so the following is a conversation I had with a dev trying to help me, basically a summary of my problems and all of the things Ive done. I know I have posted multiple threads about this and for that I apologize, I just don't know whats going on, why I have all of these errors. I recently encountered a boot loop after some fiddling around with the settings to try and fix the problem, I wiped the davlik cache ect. but nothing is working
    I have a mac computer which I used to root it but the root was fine, there were no problems
    and by the way i did go into root explorer and delete the /system/boot-from-recovery file
    I reformatted the system cache all of that i just can't figure it out

    After looking at this the thing it makes me think of is the issues we used to have the Droid 1 and CWR. It was occassionally very hard to get a good install of CWR and when you didn't, the phone would momentarily freeze up and then reboot. How are you installing CWR? Are you using Rom Manager? If so, how quickly do you get the popup messaging saying the install was successful? I remember in the Droid 1 days if you didn't get that popup in 3-5 seconds, the install was probably not a good one. Could the same thing be happening to you? Just thinking out loud . . . .

    Good luck.

    Should be. It should install CWR version 5.5.0.4. But again, pay very close attention to how long it takes for the "successful install" popup to appear. It should be almost instantaneous.

    Good luck

    More questions - From your post:

    "--Installing /sdcard/Android/data/CM9.zip
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted."

    1. Where did you get CM9.zip?

    2. Have you tried other roms?

    3. Did you try putting the rom.zip on the root of the sdcard rather than buried deep in a folder tree?

    Thanks.

    i just downloaded it from the cyanogen mod 9 thread.. the download at the bottom i just renamed it CM9
    also whenever I donwload a rom to my computer it comes unzipped and to get it to install i zip in on my computer (mac) and use android file transfer to just put it onto my nexus
    but on a side note i did download a rom right from cwm so i don't think its that

    I do think it's the "re-zip" and rename. I think you should (with the phone on wifi or with a good 4G signal) download the rom directly to the phone. It should be in the sdcard/download folder. Move it to the root of the sdcard (no folder) and do not rename it and make sure it is for your system (cdma or GSM). I think the file will install if you get a good copy on your phone. I do not believe that all the stuff you are going through before attempting the install is possibly a real source of problems.

    Good luck.

    From this I assume you mean you downloaded a rom directly from Rom Manager. I can tell you that is quite often a source of issues on these phones. Try using your browser and going to the website and download the rom directly.
