I'm running a motorola droid with a rooted 2.0.1 OS. I was looking to upgrade to bugless beast 0.4 in order to get a netfilter enabled kernel. I installed Titanium backup and Rom Manager in order to get ready. The backup worked fine, but I'm having problems with either the ROM Manager or the Clockwork boot loader. It seems that I can only get a single boot out of clockwork until it's replaced with the stock boot loader. I've tried reinstalling it several times with ROM Manager, and I've tried flashing back and forth several times to an alternate recovery and then back. No matter what I do clockwork keeps getting replaced. Also, ROM manager reports that clockwork is the current recovery manager in all cases (i.e. I have to flash it over itself according to ROM Manager in order to put it back for a single boot). The ROM Manager version is Premium v18.104.22.168 (the current one in the marketplace) and the clockwork recovery is version 22.214.171.124 (I also tried the backlevel version 126.96.36.199 with the same results).
I'm not sure what to do at this point. I suppose I could install flash clockwork, and then install the new ROM before using my one good reboot, however, without knowing what's wrong, I'm a little hesitant to do it. Also, I noticed that I get an error when I try to run the fix permissions script, even though I have verified that the phone is correctly rooted (when using su in a terminal window the prompt changes to a # and when I do a whoami it shows as "root"). Also, if the phone wasn't rooted properly I'd assume that I couldn't change the boot loader even once.
