    booting into recovery

    I have a rooted phone with rom manager on it and i decided i was going to put a rom on it but first i wanted to make sure everything was working ok so i turned off my droid 2 and then pushed the down volume and power button down to boot into recovery i have never done this before but it didnt work i can go into rom manager and choose boot into recovery but hows that going to help me if my phone gets bricked. My phone was rooted by a very trusted source but what should i do. what do i need.

    Unfortunately with a Droid 2 having a locked bootloader you are unable to boot into custom recovery (clockwork for example) from a powered off state. If you get stuck in a boot loop the only definite way to get out of it is to SBF your device.

    Bootstrap will work but again not from a powered off state. You need to be booted into the OS first and then use bootstrap to get to clockwork.

    Plug the phone in then pull the battery and clockwork should appear if you have already used droid2 bootstrapper

    I was never able to get that to work for me but reading your post I am wondering if I was doing it out of order or taking an incorrect step. Looks like I am going to be playing with the old faithful DX tonight
