I have yet to be able to boot into recovery in CW/RM, no matter what I try. Not a big deal for me personally as I can do everything I need to in SPR, but FYI. Tried flashing/reflashing, etc, still no luck.
Currently, members seem to be experiencing issues with RM/CM especially with the new 2.2 Roms. If you are not able to make progress, may I suggest that you go to the IRC site
Real Time IRC Support, CLICK HERE! and speak directly with Koush and his team regarding your particular issue. Hopefully, they will be able to provide guidance that will allow you to successfully install a new 2.2 rom that runs on your phone without any issues. Additionally, I ask that you relay back to this thread any advice, suggestions, or recommendations that you receive from Koush's team.
Has anyone else had problems with 188.8.131.52? Every time I flash it and try to boot into recovery it hangs at the Motorola M forever. Literally, if I let it, or at least until the battery ran out. I flashed down to 184.108.40.206 and everything is fine again.
I was trying to go from SPRecovery to CW Recovery and when I flashed CW Recovery from the program it said installed successfully. Reboot into recovery only to be at the M forever until a battery pull.
So I flashed SPRecovery back on from Rom manager, rebooted into recovery all is well. I Wiped Cache, rebooted and reinstalled CW Recovery from Rom manager, and BLAM now I am finally running CW Recovery.
Bottom line: Rom manager needs to be updated to wipe cache BEFORE flashing CW Recovery.
the only way i've been able to get things to work with both rom manager and sprecovery is just to flash back and fourth multiple times. flash sprecovery 3 times in a row then flash rom manager 3 times in a row etc. it is amazingly frustrating. i really wish devs could decide on one recovery to focus on so all the geniuses could put their heads together and make the user experience much better. i don't know much about it, but the impression that i've gotten is that it's a pissing contest from devs not actual dev preference due to functionality.
