    I'm new to the root game, somewhat. Here's what happened: I installed Easy Root on my phone, rooted the phone successfully. I then installed ROM Manager, and tried one of the custom ROMs from there. I did all the steps to wipe the cache and do a back up. Something happened during the booting process to the point where I can't make calls/send messages/download any apps from the market. I've tried to flash back to 2.1 and 2.0.1, and neither worked. I was running a manual update of 2.2, but it was definitely the official version. Also, it looks like the ROM I was trying to put on is still there; as well as the Superuser app. I have no idea what to do now. Any ideas would be very welcome.

    Not entirely sure what is going on, but I'm going to guess that its a bad ROM or something like that. My suggestion is to flash a new ROM. Usually any problems like not being able to make calls is a ROM issue and can be fixed by simply flashing a new one. If they persist, even in a completely different ROM, I would suggest flashing your back-up. I've never dealt with flashing previous versions so I don't know if that might have screwed it up.

    I'm new to this whole thing too, but my suggestion would be to go back to the recovery screen, do a wipe and re install the rom. From my reading, it seems that weird problems like yours come down to that as the solution.
