    X-Boot doesn't bring you to sprecovery? Does it bring you to the triangle original stock recovery screen?

    Worst case? RSD Lite SPrecovery again, as per the original instructions you used. You have a backup to restore to if need be too, right? (once sprecovery is in place if you find you get stuck over and over again)

    Did it eventually "just worked" ? It's possible the battery was (or thought it was) low. When that happens you can't boot until it charges enough and it just boot cycles. Did you have to do something to finally get it to work? If so, let us know so others can do try the same if they too get stuck, thanks and glad it worked out!

    Also if you are trying to go into recovery and are getting stuck at the M try clearing the download cache in ROM Manager. That was what was happening to me when I rooted my husbands phone. Once I cleared the download cache in RM I could get into recovery and had no more problems.
