    I'll get this out of the way first: Yes, I am a noob, if i put this in the wrong section, sorry.

    Yesterday, I rooted my droid 1, using the guide on here. That went fine.

    Flashed it to Cyanogenmod (pretty sure it is 6.1.2, but i could be wrong). That wen't great as well.

    Then i tried to flash a theme....... being the noob I am, i flashed it over cyanogenmod...... yes, i'm fairly certain that that was dumb, but like i said at the top, i am a noob.

    I did make a recovery right before I messed it up, not sure if that helps me or not though.

    So now, whenever I turn on my phone, the Motorola logo will show, then the CM logo will come up (android on skateboard with the), and then it will got black for about .5sec , and then the CM logo will come back, and start over, rinse repeat.

    This loop doesn't end until I remove the battery.


    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. :heart:

    What happens when you hold the power + X buttons? Can you get into recovery?

    When you get into recovery as the previous poster stated, do a wipe of both data and cache. That will stop the boot loop.

    Did you wipe data and cache before flashing the theme?? If so, that's your problem. A theme is not a full rom, and is meant to be installed over the top of the rom without wiping (just to change the look of the rom). So, once you go back into recovery and wipe, you will need to install the rom again and reboot. After you sign in and let the mkt sync all your apps, then you can go back into recovery and flash the theme. Again, don't wipe before installing the theme, just wipe before flashing the rom.

    Good luck!

    Chronological order:

    1. root
    2. install CM6
    3. create recovery (backup?)
    4. attempt to flash theme
    5. come to forum, and make thread

    Also, you have to make sure the theme is for the EXACT version of the rom you're flashing. If jot, you wool boot loop. So, if you're trying to flash a theme for CM 6.1.1 onto CM 6.1.2, you will get a boot loop. That's cuz most dev'rs make tweaks to framework in different rom versions. No matter how small the tweak, if the theme framework doesn't match you'll boot loop.

    Just fyi, the order should be:

    Wipe data and cache
    Format boot and system in partitions menu
    Flash rom
    Reboot, sign into Google, and let mkt dl all your apps
    Boot into recovery and flash theme
    Reboot

    It's not advisable to flash rom and then theme right away, without first booting up the rom, by itself.

    Somewhere on this amazing ball of creation!
    Put the zip on your sd, reboot into cwm recovery. Then "Install zip from sd"> choose zip (find your file on the sd card)> yes. You navigate using volume up down, power for back and at least for the DX, camera to select, just check your specific device to see what it is.
    Is that what you were wondering?
