    Just downloaded a new app and my droid decided to crash, rebooted and now just loops between the eye, DROID my lock screen and back to the eye.

    is my best bet just to reinstall another rom?

    What App?

    and if it is indeed an app causing this (tho I've never heard of that, interesting) it shouldn't affect ROM choice. O unless by App you meant ROM?

    Things to Think about:
    -Did you install a new kernal with the ROM? it sounds like it may be an unstable ROM/kernal combo.
    -Did you Wipe data/cache before flashing?

    Things to try:
    -New kernal (compatible with current ROM)
    -Another Nandroid Backup
    -Pull battery let it and phone Chill for a few minutes
    -Not sure if your phone is getting to a spot where ADB works, but if so try and rm/pull the offending app (if it is an app)
    -Another ROM to see if it fixes it
    -RSDlite

    If it is an app problem, you could try booting into safe mode. (I believe most custom ROMs leave this option in)
    Power off, power on holding keyboard menu key. That will allow you to remove app.

    The same thing happened to me last night. I had Pete's V.3 running with the stock kernel and I wanted to see what CM6 was all about. Downloaded it through rom manager...when I was prompted to reboot into recovery, I would click ok. And it would just reboot the phone bypassing recovery and like I had never downloaded anything. I tried 3 or 4 times, same thing. Tried doing a recovery from rom mgr...nada. Even tried manually going into recovery and couldn't get into it. Tried flashing the sbf for ESE81 with SPR and that's when it started. I'd get the same thing...Moto symbol, droid, red eye, lock screen back to Moto...etc. I had had 80% battery immediately previous to this and then the red light was on...red slash through the battery, the whole 9. I tried just turning it off and putting it on the charger...it would turn back on and go through the cycle again and the charge indicator light on the side would not turn on. Eventually, I had to flash the sbf for ESD56 and start from scratch. Didn't take that long to get back to 2.2, but still...Now I'm running Kangerade w/ stock kernel and everything's working like a charm.
