    Weird. I just flashed cm6.1 a few days ago with amon ra with no probs. Not sure how it happened but it looks like you lost your recovery image! Have you tried reinstalling amon ra since this started?

    Your first post made it sound lkke you could even get into recovery... since you can get into recovery your in good shape. You have a few options..

    1. Flash a nandroid so you can atleast boot your phone up. (You did make a nand back up prior to flashing cm correct? )

    2. Try and reflash cm6.1 and see if it works the second time around

    3. Or if you have another rom on your sd card you can flash that.

    From your original post it sounds like you did back up, but did you use clockwork to do a nandroid, then switch to amon ra? I don't think you can do a nandroid restore with amon ra with a nandroid backup from clockwork. It's not that you can't restore it; you just need to flash clockwork back first. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

    from what i recall you are correct. it is my understanding that a nandroid backup created in clockwork can only be restored in clockwork and a nandroid created in ra can only be restored in ra

    from the sounds of it he needs to grab the clockwork zip from unrevoked or xda and put that on his sd card, flash that and then flash his nandroid

    it feels like I am missing a step in there somewhere though that has to do with getting rid of ra

    If your trying to switch roms then just reflash the new rom you want to try. If you don't like it then you need to worry about flashing cm recovery so you can nandroid back to your old one.
