    I removed bootstrap recovery awhile ago because I read that this happened to someone else, and didn't want it to happen to me, but alas.. it did.
    So my problem is that my phone just randomly restarted a minute ago, my LED turned red, and my phone booted into bootstrap recovery. Like I said, I removed it awhile ago so I don't know why it would do this.
    Anyone else have this or know how to fix it? Easy fix? or hard fix? I want bootstrap completely off my phone.
    Thanks - Tom

    Try this. Reinstall bootsrap recovery and when you go to open it up the superuser permission request should come up. Deny it acess and then un install it. I have heard that this may be a way to get rid of custom recovery.

    FBM helped me out and he found a fix for this. But just in case anybody else has this problem here's an easy fix-

    "2. Get root explorer in the market
    3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
    4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
    5. In top right corner tap r/w
    6. Delete the file called hijack
    7. Delete logwrapper
    8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
    9. Reboot and it should be gone."
