Default [Q] Won't Boot After CM11

I just installed SafeStrap 3.65 on my phone, then created a new rom slot and installed CM11-M2. It seemed to install fine, but when I rebooted it just shows the red Motorola logo and then a black screen, nothing else. I have no way to get back into SafeStrap. I can get into the stock recovery, but it doesn't seem very helpful at the moment.

Any ideas on where to start would be greatly appreciated!

Most likely not what you're looking for, but you could always fastboot back to stock if needed.

Did you flash anything else with cm?

Having trouble editing, but:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2192467 that is to matt's utility which makes fastboot to stock easy if you want to go that route and retry from the beginning

This happened to me. I never could figure out what went wrong so I eventually did restore stock using Matt's utility ( used the option to do a full data wipe ). Then I booted into stock and accepted the OTA update from Verizon. Then I ran Matt's utility to gain root access, but I did not use Matt's utility to install SafeStrap.

Instead I downloaded SafeStrap 3.65 and manually installed it. At this point I could successfully boot into SafeStrap and create and activate a ROM slot ( I recommend creating slot 1 for CM10.x and slot 2 for CM11 ). I then installed CM and gapps and was able to successfully reboot into the custom ROM.

I ended up having to set everything back to stock and then re-root and install SafeStrap.
