it just went into the clockworkmod recovery.. and no backup was done..
I think here is a little bit of misunderstanding, if I'm not mistaken, on the release of Ultimate Droid 5.0.1 everyone who flashed the ROM lost root access, even I did lost it, and still my SU apk was there on my drawer apps, within an hour BD came up with the patch to regain root access once again.
I will recommend just for the peace of mind to download "terminal emulator" from the market open it and type "SU" if thats the first time its being use it should ask for SuperUser access, if it goes thru then indeed you are rooted if it doesn't then you need to root my friend.
How are you trying to make a backup? I am assuming the bootloader is SP Recovery. Walk me through what you are doing.
Edit: Glad I was just assuming SP..lol
Personally, I am not a huge fan of ROM Manager, although I do use it to flash between bootloaders.
I use SP Recovery which, in ROM manager, down at the bottom it says "Alternate Recovery" That's SP.
Which ever one you choose, just flash it 3 times to make sure everything is taken care of.
As far as installing stuff, I actually turn the phone off, open up the slider, hold down X and then while holding down X I hold down the power button till I see the M logo. I then let go and the bootloader comes up.
ok I need to take a step back in order to go forward here cause my mind isn't connecting A to B. Let me ask you a few questions. Did you ever actually download a ROM from the internet? Did you put it on the root of your SD card? Did you rename it to update.zip? Did you try installing it?
I'm just trying to figure out what you have done and what you have tried in order to see where the holdup is. I now know you are running ClockWorld and using ROM manager.
