    Im having a problem with boot looping on my rooted and rom'd droid. I dont know what happens to make it occur but sometimes after just running the phone it will start and I cant get it to stop. What happens is:
    1: Anytime i re-mount my SDcard
    2: any time i boot

    It will sit there and boot loop. Remounting the card causes the phone to crash to boot animation, and when it trys to start it show 'scanning SDcard" or whatever and then crashes... on the 3rd or 4th time it finally will get working. But it extremely annoying when your adding appps or working on the phone during a call. Does anyone know why this happens?
    Somethings i know DONT affect it:

    Rom im running - ive had it happen on chevy, pete and adam and stock (FML)
    Overclock - Had it happen on stock kernal and OC
    Re-Root - Ive SBF'd and it will still occur but randomly
    SDcard errors - Windows shows no errors on disk

    Its incredibly annoying and the only way ive found to fix it is to do a new nandroid install and its annoying. Anyone got any ideas or fixes or anything?

    Have you tried a different micro sd? The sd card would be the first thing I would check. Just cause windows says there are no errors does not mean there arent any.

    When you sbfed did you see if it happened at all when you were stock?

    Possible its a problem with your micro sd slot

    I've had the same experience. Twice now I've had to wipe and re-format the SD card to get it to read by the phone as after the boot loop stops it won't read the SD card. Verizon said they'd look at the phone if the second re-format didn't fix it. (would have had to SBF back to stock before taking it in, but the re-format worked again). There was some corrupt data on the card in the Android folder.

    I would not trust Windows to confirm the card is OK for use w/the phone...

    If I were me I'd:

    1. Copy all files off SD card
    2. Format card
    3. Copy files back

    I like this but I would add between steps 2 and 3 test it out with blank sd card and see if it works
