    How long do I wait before I give up the ghost and pull my battery? And how crippled is my phone going to be?

    As a newbie to this - Not. Thrilled.
    yikes...seems like more and more people are having similar issues to what i have/had. you can read what i did above...but yeah..i am NO expert in any way shape or form. just a guy looking for answers like you.
    I dont ever recall someone saying how long before one should give up on a backup....i'd like to know too. Longest i've waited is 45 minutes before i battery pulled. but lately i only wait 10 minutes before i give up.

    I ETA'd on my last post, and I seem to be up and running now, but this was a great way to make a newbie pretty trigger-shy about high-level phone tricks. I hope anyone else planning to do this will read our posts before assuming the procedure works.

    I've had this thread re-opened by the moderators. I apologize for any inconvenience users have had in attempting to restore backups - that said, these instructions are currently the only way to flash backups onto the droid x.

    The issues experienced are due to bugs in the clockworkmod recovery system.

    I'll edit the op to reflect these issues some have been having and provide a warning to those who follow the instructions.

    As always, none are responsible for end user phones on these forums but the end users. If you're trigger shy that may be a good thing - messing around with the /system files of your phone can lead to tears.

    I'm just glad I didn't actually lose any data when I had to restart my phone after the restore froze it.

    But yeah, until those bugs are addressed it seems as though there really should be a warning in place.

    I look forward to the recovery system being fixed!

    ...as of this post I don't see any changes to the OP, which concerns me a little bit.

    Thanks for the update!

    I got linked to this from another forum, great guide. Thanks.
    in Maryland and Washington DC, cell phone repair is taking off. It's amazing the number of smartphones with touch screens that get dropped and crack.

    • Go back to Koush's Boostrapper app
    • Click Boostrap Recovery
    • Click Reboot Recovery



    You're back in clockwork recovery again.

    • Navigate to "Backup and Restore"
    • Select "Restore" - this is where all your system flashes are kept, you should only have one.
    • Navigate to it, press the camera button. It will ask for confirmation
    • Select "Yes - Restore"


    It will begin restoring your phone. It may take a minute. Once again do not do a battery pull. When it's finished you will be on the main menu. Select "reboot system now". It will boot you back into the operating system; however, now you're back to your flashed system file - you'll see the widget you had previously deleted returned to normal!

    Video Demonstration:
    YouTube - Bootstrap Restore


    Reboot your phone. It will go right back into your regular interface - no clockwork recovery. The reason for this is in order to boot into the clockworkmod recovery the .apk checks for a minute file that basically tells the phone to redirect to the recovery - on a successful reboot with clockwork (if you have the .apk installed) it will delete this file so you don't boot back into clockwork unless you want to.

    Backups are stored on the sdcard in /clockworkmod/backup - you can name them to anything you want in order to help you remember what backup they are (e.g. clean 2.2 or ssx)
    When I go to "restore" you say there should be only one. I have 10. Now what do I do?

    Just wanted to say that, after having some time to rebuild my enthusiasm, I tried this process again, and it appears to have worked without any problems this time around. Looks like the best advice is to make sure your backup has integrity before doing anything very serious (not bad advice in general really).

    My biggest system change in the meantime may have been switching from Launcher Pro to Go EX, as under the former I was experiencing a lot of spontaneous reboots...not blaming the launcher, but am saying that switching launchers made the issue go away.

    Just wanted to chime in with my DX bootstrap/restore experience.

    I followed the steps and my rom (Apex 1.4.0) was up and running beautifully. Proceeded with restoring and got hung up here:

    ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.0.6
    Checking MD5 sums...
    Restoring system...
    Restoring data...
    ManageAppsInfo.txt

    I've also got a thread going on another forum that links other threads with the same problem. Some claimed to have resolved this issue, but didn't bother updating their posts with the solution.

    Well, I've just given up on the bootstrap restore and will be dl'ing my apps again from the market. Hopefully, somebody will be able to post how they resolved this issue.

    Mind if I ask what launcher you're using? I had a similar problem using LauncherPro, but using GoLauncher my restore (the one time I tried it) worked fine.

    I don't see why the launcher would be an issue, but it was the only major thing I'd changed on my phone.
