    EDIT: theres now 4 ways to do this. try all of them if you need to get into clockwork!

    Boot Into Recovery From Power Off State



    ok. we all know how the bootloader is locked and bootstrap is a hack to hijack the boot process. and i never read of a way to ACTUALLY boot into clockwork from a power off state. but then i was reading around on XDA and found something about this. started to mess with it and it worked for me and a few other staff members so lets see how this works for everyone else.


    i tried a few times to get it right. right now (gummy 2.5, bootstrapped, clockwork also flashed overtop) i can hold the power button and volume down button (both, not releasing the power button) and get into clockwork.


    NOTE: clockwork AND bootstrap are both flashed, not just bootstrap. after you flash the bootstrap, go into Rom Manager and choose flash clockwork recovery overtop (its the same menu, just a different way of booting)


    Main reason this is a big deal: you can now restore a backup (if it boots correctly) when on a bootloop if you can use this method to get into CW - as long as you dont mess up the files that make CW work (very scientific I know)

    -also, as a side note, it sometimes freezes on the M, but just do a battery pull and hold down the two buttons and try again.

    lets get some feedback! (double post from DXF)

    lets get some feedback!

    EDIT: from DF member Jolly, this works (for me and him) too.

    EDIT2: X-Tac23 posted this method. worth trying if the other two dont work
    EDIT3: xrazedz suggested this and it seems to work too

    I thought everyone knew this trick. I use it all of the time. 3 times last night as a matter of fact. Thanks.

    Also if you Battery Pull with your phone plugged up to the Charger and put the battery back in wait until it goes into the Charging State, the recharging Battery Icon. When you see that hit the power button and it will take you straight to Clockwork Recovery. Works Perfectly Everytime.

    I have LIberty 1.5, installed. Installed Bootstrap and then flashed Clockwork Recovery ontop like suggested in the first post of this thread.

    I have tried all four ways, but still cannot boot into Clockwork recovery. any suggestions?

    i mean its only a possible fix. if u cant get into clockwork, u can try normal recovery and wipe there. if still nothing, u have to sbf.

    Update:

    I can now confirm that the battery pull method works. Hooray. Now I can go tinker with the deeper inner workings of Droid X and have a way back, if I get lost.

    None of these methods have worked for me upon multiple attempts. I recently flashed stock GB .595..Am I missing something that needs to be installed???? Tried gingerbreak to root with no success, so I am on un-rooted GB .595. Thanks for the help.

    Are you soft bricked?
    In order to install 595 you have to install 588 first because its updates the kernel.
    If you don't then it'll soft brick you (known from personal experience)
