    installed via ROM manager. I misread the ROM installation requirement. I thought it meant you had to back up first then do wipe data/cache. clearly you need to check both. well now it just goes into the Gummyjar boot animation and despited trying many different combinations I can't seem to get the device to boot into Clockwork so I can do a restore. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Reboot phone, during boot image pull battery. Reinsert battery, restart phone. Should reboot to recovery.

    Thats probably b/c you didnt bootstrap first.

    You might want to look into an SBF. Try booting into the bootloader and go from there.

    Boot into the bootloader. (power and up and the D-pad I believe)

    Then you go from there. Look around for instructions on how to do this ;)
    Goodluck!

    ok, that was scary. D1 was so much easier. having these phone so locked up is like the marijuana debate.. feel my metaphor.

    If I didn't want to mod my phone I'd get a clamshell..

    anyway, wiped data/cache and Gummyjar booted right up. thanks guys.
