    got into the whole root thinkg last week and successfully did the deed. i then must have got ideas above my station and tried to load a ROM off ROM Manager which worked. i then realised i had lost all my contacts so tried to restore to my phone. its now just turning itself on and off (boot loop?). can anyone tell me how to get the effin thing working again? i can get into recovery by doing the power on and volume down thing.

    From recovery, wipe, flash the rom again.

    Did you take a Nandroid backup (the one in the Clockwork recovery menu)? If so then just go into recovery and do a restore. That will get you back to where you were before you flashed the rom. Then find the rom, put it on your SD card and flash using the recovery menu

    If you didn't then the best thing is to find the rom you want online, copy the zip file to your SD card (hopefully you have a card read - its easier) and then flash it using the recovery menu. Don't use rom manager - its not really any easier and its just introduces another thing that can go wrong.
