Default [HELP]Tried installing ROM, now phone wont start?

I've been installing a few rom's recently using Rom Manager, my phone is rooted, I tried installing one, it downloaded and when I clicked wipe data & cache and ok, nothing happened... So I removed my battery and tried to start phone, and no start. Is there any way I can format my phone and then start again?

Please help!

did you make a nandroid backup before applying new Rom? If so Can you boot into recovery menu? (hold power and volume - key at boot iirc)

Always take a backup.

Why can't you go to the other Rom? Error?

You would have better responses if you posted this in the root forum at the top of the page

Is it clockwork recovery you have installed? if it is just drop the zipped Rom onto the root of your SD card, boot into clockwork recovery and choose "install Rom from Zip"

I've found it better to do rom installs etc from Recovery menu than rom manager.

Also tip for the future... always backup using Rom manager before reflashing. nice and easy to reflash rom from recovery menu then, just point it to your backup rom zip on the SD card

Thanks a lot, best reply I've had!
I've now got my phone working running leedroid, but it keeps crashing (android.process) could you recommend a ROM for me to use?

I like HTC Sense so use this one. It's fast and stable and with the powersaving pack if you use the 2nd Rom with init.d support good on battery as well.

[ROM] [18/10] Pre-rooted Stock Froyo (2.10.405.2) [Optional mods] - xda-developers

Just drop the rom+Radio onto your SD card and install from recovery menu. Then just install the addons you want one at a time using recovery as well. no need to reboot between mod installs.

Thanks again for your reply.
Would you mind explaining what a radio is? I'm presuming that it's not the android radio you listen to?

you should factory reset a device before you apply a rom

Nope, its the radio receiver which you use to connect to your network and make / receive calls. Ot rather its the software that operates it. Like a driver for hardware on a computer
