    Quick 2.3.5 Question

    I just flashed the new ROM on my original Droid and just have a quick question. After rebooting, my phone has been showing the Droid eye and logo only ... constantly acting like it is loading or something.

    Did I do something wrong or does this process take some time to load the new ROM?

    Thanks for any assistance.

    If you nuked dalvik-cache before install it may take a long time (several minutes) to boot. If it's more than five minutes something went wrong on install.

    If you haven't already, you can try to do a battery pull. Leave it out for 20 seconds or so before popping it back in and turning on the phone.

    Neato. I was just wondering if anyone would happen to have a link to a nice safe way to get my phone prepared to install this update? I've been looking at some youtube videos, and they leave me kinda confused. I've never rooted before, but each video I look at has a different method of doing it. Any suggestions would be great!

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry for the double post, but I know I didn't provide the information about my phone in my post above.
    I'm running an original Moto Droid, with stock everything.

    Thanks again, and sorry for the double post!

    Run a search on this forum for, "Root droid 1 - regardless of OS version". Sorry I can't link it.

    Thanks ... Working Great

    Sorry, I meant to respond to this a while ago and forgot. Thanks for the help on this. Pulled the battery, let it sit for a bit and when I turned it back on ... everything working great. Love it.


    But I do have one more question. Anyone else lose the ability for the camera to focus? All pictures I've taken since the install have been blurry and no way to focus. Just wondering.
