    Hello

    Well I had real squeaky bum moment tonight when I decided to Root my phone and then to install a Custom Rom or possibly just a RUU of 2.2. It took a few attmepts to Root the phone but done and Clockwork Mod installed in the Bootloader with little or no scary events.

    I then installed Rom Manager and thought it would be a really good idea to do a backup of my Rom before I install anything else. So I set it going and all looked good and it told me that my Backup had completed, all hunky dory.

    So then my phone rebooted and then started to loop on the HTC flash screen, this is the point where my cheeks started to pinch.

    I tried removing battery and rebooting and same thing.
    I tried removing battery and removed the memory card and rebooted, same again.
    At this point my heart was beating in my chest and the pinching had reached dramatic levels.

    So how about restoring the image I had just taken? I did it and as mad as it seems it worked and my phone booted correctly and seems to be booting fine now.

    So for now I am leaving the phone alone now as I really do not want to go through that again tonight, but hey maybe tomorrow I will feel better about it and have another go.

    So that

    It's a known problem with unrevoked 3.21. The first backup causes bootloops, but if you recover from it's usually fixed. They really should call it 3.21 beta...

    Looks like the old one is better than the new one there, was it a case of released before enough testing or were there more pressing reasons?

    The older version only works on Android 2.1, but it always works fine. The new one works with Android 2.2 but doesn't always work, and has bugs.

    It's a beta/RC? And to think I was recommending to every newbie, in my signature!

    3.21 isn't a beta in name, but it has bugs.

    Wonder where the bug is..Clockwork or Unrevoked..Hopefully they will fix it soon. Unrevoked has made rooting as simple as installing a program!

    In that case it was the more pressing reasons, with any luck they will iron out the bugs quite quickly.
