    I'm stuck on CM boot screen, not the Motorola boot screen (updated to CM 7 RC 2). Should I wait it out?

    I should have backed up and did a wipe. I came from CM6. Any suggestions, or should I just restore?

    it took me a LONG time to get through the boot screen but it finally got me through now my problem is the home button dont work
    so i would wait it out and see if its just gettin everything through the system but if it gets way out of hand i would reinstall it wiping everything of course

    I couldn't really tell from the post but if you did not wipe when going from CM6 to CM7 you should have. I don't always wipe between CM7 nightlies but I believe CM6 was FROYO based and CM7 is GB based.

    Thanks all. I did a wipe, it booted fine. But once I restarted I'm once again in the CM 7 loading screen. I've waited for the past 5 minutes, but the arrow is still spinning.

    Are you using the stock kernel?

    Personally, I would re-download it and gapps to PC and mount USB storage in recovery, put it on your SD card, wipe all again and re-flash it

    Did you restore with TiBu? i did that and got the neverending boot screen too. I ended up wiping again, re-flashing and just installed the apps manually. All is well now.

    Ah, I see. I did restore with TiBu. I'm going to give it another go, and see what happens. Does this mean I'll no longer have access to my backed up data if I switch to CM7?

    You should be able to use titanium backup for specific apps and data. But not for the whole restore

    Right... THAT was my problem. Without thinking about it, I restored all apps+ system data and got the boot loop. You will want to go through the list before restoring and take out anything that is Google related (well, that's what I did anyway). I lost my old SMS messages, but i can live with that. I now back them up to my gmail account so no worries about that anymore.

    It seems like I am having the exact same problem. I just tried flashing from the stock OS to CM7 on an original Droid. I backed up all my data and apps using titanium, but when I restore them after CM7 has installed and reboot, it hangs in the CM boot screen. I have a feeling it is because I'm restoring system settings from the stock OS, and this might be causing a glitch somewhere. Its done this twice now too, so it wasn't a fluke. My question is, what kind of backup do I need to perform with titanium? I want to restore all my system settings, but I want to do it in a way that won't prevent CM's install.

    Any suggestions?

    You won't be able to restore system data from anything before Gingerbread. THAT is what caused the boot loop. You *should* be able to restore your apps, but I went the safe route and just re-installed everything from the market.
    If you want to retain your text messages, get Backup to Gmail or a similar SMS backup program and you will be able to restore them once you are done with the upgrade.
    I would also consider replacing the stock kernel with another. I am not sure of the latest nightlies, but 29 had a problem with bootlooping using the stock kernel. I run deprimed and love it.


    HTH,

    I flashed CM7 while using Liquid Frozen Yogurt and after I installed it I realized there were no gapps so I tried to flash those onto my phone and it powered off and was stuck on boot loop. I reflashed with RSD lite and phone turns on fine. If I power it off, it will do the same thing again so I have to reflash it. Any tips or advice?

    This has been discussed thoroughly in another thread, the kernel is bad (that may be a harsh assumption, I should say it's not working for the majority of people). Flash a different kernel and you should be good to go. I suggest the deprimed kernel, it's amazing so far.
