Hi Folks,

Im new to the rooting scene as well as anything regarding custom ROMS. I've rooted my device (Moto Droid) I have backups with Titanium and ClockWork. Basically I successfully installed CM 7 and then wanted to grab some gapps from Rom Manager. I downloaded the Google Apps rom and tried to install over CM 7 and then my phone reset and now its stuck on the CM 7 logo. I've tried to boot into recovery but it loads the same way. Im not really sure were to go from here. Any help or assistance would be appreciated because as I said Im a noob to this field.

Also if I plug in via USB I get the same logo. Am I just not patient enough? Ive let it sit for 15 minutes or so and still nothing. I hope I didnt brick my phone :(

I would try flashing your nandroid backup and starting from scratch with cm7. Let it flash gapps and cm7 together

Your bootloops are most likely being caused by the wacky kernel that's supplied with the current cm7. A lot of people are having issues with it and have solved it by flashing an alternate kernel. I suggest prime's deprimed kernel.

Download rom, gapps, and kernel separately (don't use rom manager) and move them to your sd card. Then boot into clockwork recovery; wipe (times 4), then flash cm7, then flash gapps, then flash the kernel. Then reboot and you should be good to go.

Thanks for all your help Sbenson. A bit of an update for yall, I did some research, some trial and error, and now my phone is working fine with CM7. No boot loop, all gapps. I havent installed that kernel but I may do so here soon just to see how much better it works for me. Ill let you know how it goes for me. Again thanks for all your help. . .greatly appreciated.
