    First time using Rom Manager, recovery didn't start...

    I hit the top button... Flash Clockworkmod recovery... or what ever it said..
    I then backed up my Current ROM.
    I then downloaded Cyanogen v6.0.0 cr2
    It downloaded and rebooted my phone.

    BUT....

    It went to a screen with a Triange w/ exclamation and a phone under it.
    I then hit the upvol button and camera, and now I'm at the Android system recovery page and I don't know what to do next.

    these are my options

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory rest
    wipe cache partition
    wipe baseband data

    btw, I did click to backup current ROM and wipe data and cache.

    please help!!!

    It didn't flash CW right. Rom Manager has been real bad with Froyo. try this:

    SBF to root and to unroot

    option 1 then option 2 and then you can use any Rom you like.

    Last I knew Clockwork was needed to install Cyanogen, but that may have changed. a quick Google search shows some threads but I didn't dig deep to see if a sprecovery version of the rom exists. That may negate the "any rom you like" part.

    It sounds like Rom Manager did not flash clockwork for you. You can try to flash clockwork recovery again again. Your recovery screen should say Clockwork at the top of it

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I've had this happen as well. Here's what solves it for me:
    - Open RM and scroll all the way to the bottom and select "All ClockworkMod Recoveries"
    - Select 2.0.1.3 and hit OK
    - Do that three times
    After that you should be good to go. Just select "Install ROM from SD card" and find the CM download and select it.

    Hope that does it for you.
