Hello all, I'm sure the answer to this question exists somewhere deep and cozy in one of these threads. Searching has not led me to the answer so I'm just going to ask. I just got my wife a Droid and rooted it. I went the old manual route, no superoneclick. Phone is on 2.2.3 stock. I have SU app, downloaded Rom Manager and flashed clockwork. I can't get into recovery to install a new rom. I have held x and powered on, I just get to the "M" then the phone hangs for a few seconds and reboots normally.
While I'm asking questions. I'd love some suggestions. I am flashing the phone to get some bloatware off of it, speed it up, and keep it stable. I'm a bit of a purist too, so the closer to aosp the better. BUT the big thing is stability and speed since it's for my wife. I run a Droid X2 with CM7 and I love it. Just new to this forum for the little OG droid. Thanks for the help in advance.
