    OK, here goes. I have an Optimus V from VM. I rooted it a couple months ago to try to make more room and used move2sd to move some of the apps to the SD Drive. Worked but not enough.

    Finally, decided that I would try one of the new ROM's. Settled on the Rom Manager(free) and when I saw how it worked decided to get the pro verison (5.99) so that I could download ROMs and try them.

    First ROM I downloaded was the new (Honeycomb?) one and it started to install. Everything seemed to be working the way advertised until it started to reboot. It just hung. I had to remove the battery to get it to shut down.

    I rebooted in recovery mode and got the Rom Manager screen. This gave me 9 choices of things to do and I tried all 9 and confirmed with the home key and nothing happens. If I hit the home key again it goes back to the menu. This is how I ended up trying all 9 options. Nothing seems to work.

    Any help out there? :mad:

    ROM Manager has caused tons of problems with V's according to many threads. You really should never use ROM Manager.

    Thanks for the response but I found what I was doing wrong. The biggest problem I see is that a lot of the apps don't have instructions. I was using Rom Manager Pro wrong. You select what you want to do and then hit the camera button to select it! Never said that anywhere and I just happend to touch it by mistake. I restored my backup and then tried a couple other ROMs and they worked fine. Not what I wanted but they are least worked.

    Thanks for the response though.

    I do believe Honeycomb is for tablets only. Glad you got it straightened out. You can go here for info on Rom Manager and our 'V' thanks to AndyOpie.
