    I'm following all the steps from Roooler's sticky guide. I downloaded darkslide blur 1.0 and transferred it to my sd card and used bootstrap to load it. It takes like 10 seconds, says its complete and I reboot and nothing. The other way I tried was with rom manager. I downloaded flyx, and when it reboots and goes to install, about half way through I get a triangle with an exclamation point in it and it reboots and no rom loaded....sucks

    did you mount sys before install?

    Btw Flyx is no longer being developed so IMO i would not recommend it

    Not sure what you're talking about. If it wasn't in that guide then no.

    ok from BBCrackman's post over at my droid world
    to Install:
    Place Zip on sdcard - (you have already done)
    Bootstrap recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Mount System - (to do this go into mounts/storage, hit mount system ( it will change to unmount system when it is mounted))
    Back out to main menu - (press power button to go back)
    Install Zip from sdcard
    Choose Zip
    Install
    Reboot
    Enjoy


    if you did not mount sys this could be the cause of your issue
    try again and make sure to do all these steps
    hope this helps good luck

    my personal favs are rubiX focused 1.6 or fission 2.1 final but i am not a big fan of blur if you like blur maybe rubiX blurry 1.0. However darkslide should work if you follow all the steps
