    Umm, which 2.1 ROM did you flash? Normally, it does take longer on the first boot up when you flash new ROMs/MODS so just be a little patient.

    I'm willing to bet 99% that you did not read everything in that ROM. Did you wipe both data and dalvik as is says? I'm guessing not. Try to wipe data/dalvik then try again. If you don't know how to wipe, please read the guide as it tells you :)

    I think you missed the extra .9% so that you could be as accurate as an EPT :)

    Stay on one thread. You've started 3 different threads all about the same person rooting and them putting a custom ROM on the phone.

    Stick to one thread. It will be easier to get help.

    Lol. True, it is helpful to continue posting in the same thread.

    But, on the other hand, this is why I have 147 thread subscriptions currently, after deleting a TON of them the other day :).

    Nope, boot into recovery mode and wipe data and dalvik cache then reboot after both tasks have completed.

    please read the guide...this question is answered in there..

    to wipe your phone. reboot in recovery (hold home while powering on) in recovery, choose wipe. wipe data/factory reset

    THEN flash the ROM you want to use (CDMA only please) which in your case I believe you said you were trying to use Damage Control 2.0.7.. then reboot. it will take a few minutes 5-10 for first boot.

    RTFM please :p

    Seriously though, you are doing something that could potentially brick your phone so it's of utmost importance to read and make sure you fully understand the risks and process involved.

    It normally takes 5-10 minutes for first boot.

    I assume your "Not" running 2.1 is a typo? Gratz on getting it working. Be sure to use the "Thanks" button for all those that helped you out :)

    I don't think he knows how that button works, lol. We should just take pride in the fact that we were able to steer this one in the right direction.

    Lol. No worries. I'm just glad he got it working. I hate hearing that people result to running RUU because they can't get it working and don't take the time and patience to ask for help and research ;).
