    I SURE hope you backed up BB before you ROMmed again. Go into recovery and do a restore to your last known good state. Did you wipe before ROMming?

    I have a backup. Don't think i did a wipe before installing red rum 1.3... do I need to in order or it to get past boot?

    If you're having boot issues it's very likely that you need to wipe data and cache at a minimum before changing ROMs. Fortunately you have a backup. Go into recovery, do the wipe and then install the .zip again. Good luck!

    Are you putting in a ROM or a theme?

    flash sprecovery with RSDlite. this will put sprecovery back on the phone and you can then proceed from there.
