    I don't know how to solve your problem, but, Droid X Bootstraper is much much better than ROM Manager.


    Just noticed you don't have a Droid X. This is the Droid X forum...no HTC phones here.

    Did you check the boxes to clear/format before installing the rom?

    I just checked and the ZapX rom is for Froyo (android 2.3.15), not for your current version 2.3.340. You have to be careful of that. I love RM, especially for managing backups, but it does show you roms that aren't safe to install.

    If you still can get into recovery, I'd format/clear cache, then try loading your backup again.

    hopefully you made a backup, but if not, have no fear your still in good hands, if you made a backup no need to worry, if you didnt make a backup still no need to worry, you will just need to sbf back to 2.3.320

    if he made a backup he doesnt need to sbf
    just boot into recovery and bam your set

    if he didnt make a backup yes sbf is your way out, and its saved all of us at least once im sure, or close to all of us
