It's a Christmas miracle!
It worked!!!! Thank you all so much and I love each and every one of you!!
I now have a stock phone with 2.0.1 but I don't even care. I am just so happy it is working again.
My phone installed all of the updates to get to 2.2 and I was able to root and restore my nandroid recovery file. Now it is like nothing ever happened. Whew!!
Thanks again to everyone for your help and I apologize for being overly dramatic. I would just be lost without my phone

Now that the crisis is over and you've fixed your phone, can I ask a stupid question that I haven't seen asked yet?
What is a "Clockwork Mod Recovery update loop"? I've been part of the Droid modding scene for quite some time now, and i've never heard of such a thing. I wish I had caught this thread earlier and asked you this, perhaps with proper explaination of the problem, I could have helped you fix it without having to resort to SBF flashing.
Entering Clockworkmod recovery, Looking for update.zip, then installing update.zip
That is as far as it would get before starting over again. Then it would display the same messages.
Yes, I am like Dave and curious too as to why it would boot into recovery afer deleting an app, and how or why clockwork would be told to be installing an update.zip file just from uninstalling a system app.
How were you trying to reinstall the Youtube app?
