Cyanogenmod 7 - Hanging at splash screen

I had an earlier version of cyanogenmod installed, I went into rom manager and pressed update (or something like that). It did the whole installation thing but now it's just hanging at the cyanogenmod splash screen.

What do?

Have you tried to boot into recovery ? (turning it on by pressing the power button and the - volume button)

Did you backup? Always, always backup.

If not try downloading the ROM and flashing that, don't wipe just yet, if that fails you will probably need to wipe and flash again.

Ok, your problem now is that the file system changed from 2.2 (Froyo) to 2.3 (Gingerbread) and you will need to flash a new version of ClockworkMod Recovery to restore that backup.

Do you have ENG S-OFF? You will be able to flash it via fastboot, if not you will have to start again from CM7 and downgrade ClockworkMod Recovery from there, then restore your backup.

I flashed the latest ClockworkMod Recovery (3.0.0.6) - I think before I tried to install CM7.

Restoring the backup means almost everything is gone, apps, settings, etc (but not everything). Did I **** it up? Will I have to redo everything?

If I have to do that anyway I might as well use CM7, but installing that means the splash screen hangs (I had the same problem with CM6, I dont remember how I fixed it)
