    Hi so im running into some problems with bootlooping after i tried to install cyanogen mod and shadow rom today. I have the droid1, chevyno1 ulv 1ghz kernel, frg22d, i used rom manger to install it and currently running clockwork mod recovery too. i didnt wipe data or cache when i installed them so maybe thats the problem? im really new to this and just rooted a few days ago so im still trying to figure everything out lol. soo go easy on me.

    if you need anymore info on my phone or anything just lemme know. and i appreciate any help :)

    You should always wipe when you are installing a new ROM so that could definitely be the issue. I also know that people were having issues with ROM manager a while back so that might be part of the problem also. You could always try this
    Download the .zip file and put it on the root of your SD card
    Turn on your phone while pressing X to boot into clockwork recovery(I'm guessing that's the recovery you are using
    Make a nandroid backup of your current ROM
    Wipe data/cache - more than once if you choose
    Install zip from SD card
    Choose .zip from SD card - choose the .zip file you just downloaded
    Reboot phone after the ROM installs
    See if that works for you

    While I don't doubt that not wiping may, in some cases, cause boot issues, 99.9999999999% of the time it is kernel related. Try a standard voltage kernel, or if you are dead set on ULV, try a lower speed. CVPCS's increasing voltage kernels work wonders.
