    So I rooted my phone successfully and used DMUpdater for the first like 2 hours haha. I then found ROM Manager hoping it would ease the use of downloading and installing roms. Well it is easier. I can download and update without hassle, but once I try to reboot my phone, it gets stuck on the DROID logo and the red droid eye image. I want to play around with more stuff, but I'm stuck on smoked glass 5.0 right now. Any help?

    if not follow this:

    Root 2.1 by using SPRecovery
    Download ESE81update.zip
    thanks to Pete of Bugless Beast for creating this file
    rename the downloaded file to update.zip
    mount Droid to computer
    copy file from computer to root of sdcard
    unmount card from computer
    hold X while rebooting until SPRecovery screen comes up
    wipe data factory reset
    install
    allow update.zip
    install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated)
