    Yeah, I would pull the battery and then either restore your Nandroid backup or flash another known, good ROM.

    Did you do both wipes before flashing the new ROM? If not, maybe that was the problem...

    No problem... I saw your post and then got a call from my son and couldn't respond right away and thought you were stuck for an excessively long time. Glad it finally came back.

    Cheers and enjoy the new ROM!

    By "both wipes" what do you mean?

    I had the same problem last night trying to put a new rom on (I'm still running EvilEris 2.1!) Fortunately I managed to get EvilEris back up and running, but I'd like to figure out what I did wrong before I try to put a new rom on again :)

    When you boot into Recovery there is a 'wipes' option.
    Under that you do the data/factory reset and dalvik wipes (top two in the list).
    It's a good idea to do both wipes before flashing any new ROMs. SOMETIMES you can upgrade from one version of a ROM to a different version of the same ROM without doing a wipe, but *I* always do both wipes even if just updating versions. That way I'm sure that I don't have any junk from the old ROM messing with the new one.

    Thanks! I figured that was what you meant. I didn't do the dalvik wipe last time. I did it this time and now I'm running the newest KaosFroyo rom :)
