    I have tried multiple things, but I'm still stuck at the boot loading screen with the X.

    I had cyan 5.0.4. - I wiped and flashed to 5.0.5 and now i cannot get past the boot.

    I've tried booting back into recovery and wiping and doing a nandroid recovery to 'amon's recovery 1.7.0' but to no avail.

    nothing i do works. any help would be appreciated. =)

    Try and re-download another copy of 5.0.5. It may be corrupted

    ok, I went back to Cyanogen's site and re-downloaded the 505 ROM. - same issue.
    After that, I rebooted into recovery and wiped and flashed the previous 504 Rom. - now it boots.

    Something doesn't like the 505 ROM.

    EDIT: 5.0.5 now works.

    basically after i got 405 working i just went back to recovery and WITHOUT WIPING i flashed 505.

    works great so far!

    You can also download cm updater in the market and update without flashing through the recovery. I think

    oops!! i forgot that you were stuck at the boot loop. My bad. on a side note i just used cm update to go to 5051 with no problems. i tried to flash from scrap and nothing. Went back to 505 and updated without a hitch.....Im tempted to check out the desire ROM, with it still in alpha, I'M kinda chicken shit about trying! LOL

    yeah, for some reason i couldn't install 505 without installing 504 first.
    i wonder why it works with cm and not from recovery?

    FYI, Cyanogen ROM 5.0.5.2 is out......amongst a few changes, was a bug fix preventing 5.0.5.1 from working if wiped previously.

    Yep, should work fine - applied without wiping myself.
    Will be experimenting with CyanogenMod Updater in the future.

    ok, did you nandriod backup before you flashed the new 5052?

    Yes, I always do a Nandroid just in case....saves you time if anything goes wrong. It's such an easy process, why wouldn't you.....

    Cyanogen's notes recommend it even if you are upgrading.
