    Ok so here's my problem...I installed a ROM called Frozen Yogurt and everything was going well. It installed fine, rebooted, and took me to the "connect with google" page. The one that gives you the option to create an account or sign in...I entered my e-mail like 4 times and all 4 times it said "could not connect with google! May be a temporary problem or if problem continues contact customer service." I ended up just rebooting in recovery and using nandroid back up. Is this a problem with the ROM or my phone?

    I have no clue what a "flavor" is. I think it was the ROM though because now I'm running "Bugless Beast". I like it but I think I want to try "Ultimate Droid". Have you used "Ultimate Droid" before? Another question...when switching ROMs do I have to perform a recovery? I want to shop around for different ones until I find the one I like. I just want to make sure I'm doing it right.

    Flavors are what LFY refers to as his themes.
    I have used UD before. I prefer bugless but I switch ROMs daily sometimes. CyanogenMod is my new choice. :)
    Anyways, what do you mean by perform a recovery? You should always backup then wipe data and cache prior to installing a new ROM

    Oh thanks for explaining "flavor". By recovery I mean do I have to go back to my original backup before installing a rom. Or does ROM manager do all that for me?
