Hi guys,

First attempt at rooting today. Used unrevoked3 on a Mac. It worked. I put the latest stable build of Cyanogen for HTC Desire GSM phone on the SD card.

I used Rom Manager to flash this ROM.

I chose to back up, and I unchecked the bottom of 2 delete cache options...? (maybe this is where I went wrong?)

After it said it had successfully backed up my current HTC Sense ROM, it proceeded to install the new ROM.

The phone rebooted then got stuck on the white HTC screen for a following 15 minutes... I rather foolishly tried to switch off, so unplugged the battery and rebooted.
Again, it is stuck on the same screen, now for 15 minutes...

Have I bricked my phone???

Thanks

Ok, I went into recovery mode by holding the volume down button.

I chose install the ROM update from the same file again, and rebooted.

Now I have a cute Cyanogen screen, with an arrow rotating around a blue Android robot and Cyanogen7 Mod... I guess it's doing something? It's taking its time... about 3 minutes now?

How do I progress?

The second way you installed, from recovery, use that wherever possible: ROM Manager is seldom your friend in matters like this.

That circle should pass, certainly after three minutes, if it doesn't, pull the battery and reboot.

If that doesn't do it, reinstall the update.

After stumbling around the recovery, and reinstalling my backup... I used ROM manager and did the ROM update again, this time wiping data and cache. BAM, it worked.

Now I have a different problem: Some apps, like Firefox 4, Google Maps, FatBooth, Radiant HD, DoubleTwist Player, Google Earth... don't download or install...?

Anyone able to chime in? I can't install certain apps from marketplace...

I've had to reinstall the flash again and again and again... nothing

Firefox, Maps, Google Earth, Angry Birds and certain purchased apps...

I'm out of my depth here...

Sounds like you might be out of memory space to download and install. I used to get this issue all the time and had to uninstall other apps before installing others.

Check out my post on CM7 and Data2SD. I will post more in there soon.
