    Well I downloaded this ROM by ROM Manager and it worked fine for 4 hours and then it wouldn't work. 3G, texting, and calling wouldn't work. I tried texting off Handcent SMS and it wouldn't work and then i tried the stock SMS and it wouldn't work. I would send a text message and it wouldn't go through. I would call someone and it would work but the other person wouldn't get the phone call. I chose the Stock Theme and a Kernel when i downloaded it and then I would put a theme over it i downloaded off the Android Market. It was a honey comb theme. Any ideas on why it did this?

    Rom manager is ok to download from but don't let it install it for you, turn the phone off, hold power and x to boot recovery then use the wipe data and cache/factory data reset 3 times then find the option under advanced to reboot recovery, then after it reboots to recovery install from the sdcard

    That would be a good idea just in case you got a bad download

    I always download directly to the phone and use astro to move it to root and have never had a problem. The issue, like the 1st replier said, is probably due to installing from rom manager.

    Also, doesn't he need raid zero recovery? CWM recovery may be the issue. I thought I remember seeing the rom should be installed with the latest version of RZR.

    CWR should work fine, but as others stated, manually install by rebooting into recovery. Also - the theme you downloaded COULD cause these issues as well. Did the theme say it was made for GB 2.3.4? If not - that could be it.

    + 1,I always wait abt a day or two before I put a theme on or switch things around ie.. like a kernal. I let the rom settle in first that way if I have any issues its easier to find out what it is and get it fixed, otherwise you don't know for sure which one is the issue. On a side note, chevy you are the master! My droid loves your work, donation on the way!! Thankyou!

    ROOTED: OG Droid1, Rzrecovery2.0.3
    ROM: Simply Stunning v5.4
    KERNAL: ChevyNo1 lv1.0
    THEME: GoLauncher ex, Glow
