    Ok, I am now stuck at the startup m

    I was rooted running 2.1 with titanium backup, clockwork recovery and tthe kousch botstrapper installed. The first thing I did with clockwork was to tell it to make a recovery file. Today I threw the bootstrapper apk folder on the sd card and had it install. then I put the fly-x rom on the sdcard in teh clockwork folder, opened the bootstrap app and told it to boot into recovery.

    Once in recovery I had it apply the fly-x rom.zip and everything seemed to go fine. no dice, stuck at the logo. pulled battery tried again, same result.

    got back into the bootstrap launcher and told it to boot the recovery.zip file I created. all seemed to go fine. Reboot and get the same screen.

    so what now? help please

    you cant install the fly-x over a 2.1 rom... you have to upgrade to 2.2 leaked first. probably only choice now is to sbf it, re-root it, upgrade to the leak then flash the fly-x...

    thats what i was afraid of. I realized it after I had already told it to go that I might have chosen the wrong file. Oops.

    Tips for sbfing it. I have the_gift.zip file. Just throw that on the sd card and tell clockwork to run it?

    And since you already have the bootstrap recovery why not update through rom manger next time to flyx.

    Why not just recover?? You said you made a recovery.... That is what I did. I went from 2.1 --> Fly X then read I couldn't, recovered, then installed 2.2, then fly x.

    the recovery I made was not working. Not sure why. I am back into a stable 2.2 root right now. Gonna play with some roms and clocking tonight for fun.
