    hey guys so today i was using my d1 running miui rom and i was looking at the Sapphire rom and decieded to test it out but i chose the unofficial version 1.14 and i load it up with rom manager it installs then my boot image comes up but then i was stuck on a black screen for a good five minutes so i battery pulled and tried loading up the copy of miui i just made but same issue then i went into custom recovery and loaded up the boot from an older copy of miui i had and it worked but it wasn't the latest version so i downloaded 12.18 on my droid and tried to flash over but now i am stuck at the black screen again and i tried the same thing before with using an old boot but its a no go i know i am not bricked but i really rather not wipe because i had my setup nicely and i can still enter recovery so any ideas would be awesome thanks

    I think you need to wipe before installing the new miui not sure. didn't they change the interface a little in the new one. I wipe before installing every rom, but I haven't used miui before so not sure.

    Well it won't help you now, but starting with 12.18 you can backup your launcher layout using MIUI backup. So no fear of wiping and losing your setup:)

    If you can get into recovery wipe the data and cache then install a good backup and you will be fine.
