    I was trying to set up a new rom on my Droid and I think I bricked it. I put the ADCBeta0.3Dark folder in my nandroid backup folder and then started up in safemode and selected it under advanced restore. The restore finished and I hit reboot, phone rebooted. It started up and ran the big eye startup screen with an alldroid symbol up top. Then it shut off and the only way I can get it to turn back on is by taking the battery out and putting it back in. I can't enter safemode and restore my original backup either.

    Can you get to the SPRecovery screen? Hold X while powering on.

    You can't get into recovery? And after performing a battery pull, does it do the same thing again?

    I haven't been able to these past couple times but I'll try again. I hope it works because I'm pretty sure I can fix it if I can get it back there.

    OK, I am requesting that this thread be merged with Lev's other thread

    Lev, FWIW, don't make duplicate posts - it gets confusing....

    Sorry, after I posted I thought maybe I posted in the wrong place. I was able to get to the recovery screen and fixed it.

    Kewl, good to hear Lev - and no worries, next time just report your own post to ask the Mods to move it to where it needs to go - better that way, and less headache - I had an intense Deja vu feeling after I responded to the one in the support forum, only to see the same post again in the main forum lol...

    Heh, I bet so. I'm new to the forum and it's really nice to see how quickly folks responded to help me.
