    Rom manager won't back up rom or reboot into recovery.

    I decided to finally take the plunge and put a different rom on my phone. After the 2.2.1 update my phone has been horrible. It has been super laggy, if that's a word. I figure if I flash a different rom on here it will run much smoother. I've even tried buying clockwork's Droid X Bootstrap Recovery and all it does is reboot the phone and that's it. I have no idea what it would do if I tried to install a rom, probably the same thing, but I'm not taking chances without a nandroid back up. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

    Try flashing the alternate recovery, then flash clockwork recovery again and you should be good.

    I've got the same problem the OP did.. I went to try to flash alternate recovery but that option is greyed out. I tried to install an earlier version of clockwork that said error downloading. So I tried fixing permissions. But that doesn't seem to have helped.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Update: I rebooted into recovery using the home/power key sequence and it looks like I'm looking at the stock recovery. I am getting an error at the bottom of the recovery screen, E: can't access /cache/recovery/command

    If flashing an alt recovery is grayed out, it may be because you don't have the paid version. Not sure how to help you in that case. Maybe look for alternate ways to rewrite clockwork recovery or spl and start from scratch? Or spend the $3 if you haven't already on the Rom Manager Premium?

    Sorry, but good luck.

    (I'm assuming that you are rooted)

    Trouble with ROM Manager backups

    I have the same problem as the OP and Ethion. I just paid for this app, too.

    In brief:
    Flash ClockworkMod Recovery - ok
    Backup Current ROM - my phone reboots to my home screen

    I tried performing All ClockworkMod Recoveries
    - it says 'An error occurred while downloading your recovery". I tried all four optional recoveries.

    I tried with and without Advanced Mode checked, Clearing Download Cache, Fix Permissions, Reboot into Recovery (just rebooted)

    No backups show in Manage and Restore Backups or on my SD Card.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    When most of us have this type of issue, flashing an alternative recovery like SPL, then flashing back clockwork will resolve this problem. All done thru Rom Manager. Did you try that out?

    Then again your a Droid X user... Did not see that. Hope you get it going!
