figured i'd post this in here in case anybody is suffering the same problems after flashing FRG83 or 2.2.1-source build

-after flashing my D1 to FRG83, all my apps auto-restored from the market, but i could not get it to Reboot to Recovery in ClockworkMod. it would just bootloop once, then start up. i used ROM mgr to flash to SPRecovery mode, which worked, and then flashed back to CWM, and it indicated it had flashed, but same bootloop.

-i tried uinstalling & reinstalling ROM mgr, with the same results.

to get back to a working CWM, i did this (you'll need Astro or some other file mgr app):

uninstall ROM Mgr
open up sdcard/clockworkmod/
delete the ".settings" file
delete the "download" folder
reinstall ROM Mgr
allow su permissions
flash clockworkmod recovery

make sure you do a fresh backup
