    I have rooted from 2.2 Froyo and have Bugless V6 and i recently reformatted the phone and deleted user info and cache but after i turn on the phone the phone gets stuck on the Boot screen the droid X's eye and some time it gets passed and gets to the android but when i continue on when it gets to the last screen it says something like Android set up failed or w.e

    So i have two question

    1. This is how I prepare my droid for a rom. I got it from Liquid. http://android.markjohnston.us/DL/LFY/RNOTES/installation.txt

    1) Reboot into recovery (ClockworkMod Preferably or SPRecovery)

    NOTE: If you haven't already done a backup...do one now. I always perform my backups via ROM Manager so I can properly label my backups. If you need to do a backup at this point it will work exactly the same way but it names your backup with time and date information (you can rename the file later)

    Here's how to create a backup in ClockworkMod Recovery
    From the main recovery screen, go to: Nandroid and then select "Backup"

    2) Select "wipe data/factory reset" - This will actually format your Data, Cache, and SD-ext partitions

    3) Go into the "partitions menu"

    4) Format "Boot"

    5) Format "System"

    6) Go back to the main screen (power button backs you out to the previous menu)

    7) Install zip from sdcard

    8) Choose zip from sdcard

    9) navigate to where you have stored the zip file and select it (no need to rename the file)

    NOTE: You can do the same thing if you are using SPRecovery (you will need to rename the file to update.zip) but you have to format partitions using ADB shell (there are no menu options to format partitions like there is with ClockworkMod).Then try re-flashing BB.

    2. Your contacts (and apps) will load after the sync icon goes away.

    That will fix the bootloop issue you're having.

    Would depend entirely on what support your phone gets from the hacker community. Off the top of my head I will say "overclock if SetCPU works on your phone, tether, remove bloat, use Titanium Backup, and take screenshots."

    I'm sure there's more, but I don't know what as your phone isn't a Verizon phone; we don't know much about non-Verizon phones here at DF. :)
