    Did you wipe your data/dalvik before you flashed the new rom? If you didn't, reboot into recovery (hold volume up and power when you turn on the phone), wipe data and the dalvik cache, and reflash KaosFroyo.

    Some Froyo ROMs take a while to finish booting...but, you already know that now, right? :eek: :D

    Congrats! (and welcome to root and the AndroidForums)

    Only to add, be sure to give any new ROM flash lots and lots of time to finish that first boot; sometimes "stuck" is just "parsing in the background, etc." ;)

    Congratulations on your success.

    No deletion necessary, lowdown; good lesson here for new rooters. ;)
