    so before i smash my phone with a hammer i hope someone can help me. so i rooted my droid using one of the tutorials on here(how to root droid regardless of operating system)everything was fine i got root on my phone and sprecovery
    but for whatever reason i could not flash any roms.....so long story short i used rom manager flashed clockwork and now im stuck in bootlooping after trying to flash a rom through rom manager.i made a stock nandroid backup but for some reason the file cant be found(possibly because i created it using sprecovery and now i have clockwork maybe idk?)so i tried the sticky topic to fix this there is only one problem i cant seem to flash any roms in clockwork.i placed the ultimate droid extreme 8 on the sd but the rom either wont show up or it wont flash for whatever reason....thanks for reading and hopefully someone can help!!!!

    So you have SPRecovery on now?

    If that is correct:

    Find a Rom you like, d/l and rename rom to update.zip (not update.zip.zip), put update.zip on root of sd card (not in any folders), reboot recovery (powering on while holding x), wipe Data/factory reset x2, wipe cache partition x2, install, allow install update.zip, install update.zip depreciated

    Nandroid backups go in the nandroid folder for SPR and clockworkmod/backup folder for CW. Spr backups will not work with CW and vice-versa

    Edit: sounds like when your backup was made it had an error which is why it won't load and it can't find the tar archives
