    Hopefully I can find a solution to this problem. I just flashed CyanogenMod 5.0.7 from the test-1 version of 5.0.7, and now I cannot reboot into recovery. All I get when I try is a perpetual "M" logo... After a battery pull, I am able to boot into my newly flashed version of CM, but cannot get into recovery by any means (tried ROM Manager, Quickboot, and holding the "X" key down when turning on the handset.) Also noticed that I can't seem to do a factory reset, either. When I try from Settings/Privacy/Factory Reset, all I get is a reboot to my current settings.

    Any input to a relative noob would be greatly appreciated!!

    Did you try using ROM Manager to install a different ROM?

    MBK: I did try installing a different ROM, but it always has to go into CM Recovery to install it, and when it tries, it freezes on the "M"

    DROIDMODDER: Pulling the battery is my only option at that point, and when I did attempt to enter recovery by long pressing "X", it just freezes again...

    ... and to the last response (sorry, I didn't remember your screen name!) what is "RSDing?"

    Thanks to all of you responding!

    Here also.

    Started by updating clockwork recovery per update suggestion. Once 5.0.7 was installed, wanted to reinstall bekit 7-slot 1.0. When Rom Manager reboots, just the M. After battery pull, reboots with stock kernel. Rom Manager manual CR sticks on M again.

    I'd say CR got hosed, you could either try flashing it back on via ROM Manager, or flashing SPRecovery on via RSDLite, then try to put CR back on via ROM Manager.

    Yeah I installed a rom (MyDroidWorld) from here and I could not reboot into recovery. If you made a nandroid backup make a copy and put it on your desktop just in case (will save you time). Back up all apps with titanium.

    Then follow rsdlite 2.1 sprecovery. Now I will admit I was against it because I did not want to see pete 81 so at first I was going to go the long way by installing 2,01. Ok I will admit that it was stupid, took forever, and accidently clicked installed for the 2.1 ota. So I had to use rsdlite again to flash the 2.1 sprecovery. It worked and I was able to use it to reinstall my 2.1 rom that I had backed up (so it now says 2.1 ota ese 81 update 1 (like it did before)).

    For the person asking about rsdlite.

    Make that 4 people. I installed Cyanogen 5.07 last night. At first I was able to boot into recovery. I even made a couple of backups using Clockwork. Now I can't boot into recovery at all. I didn't make any modifications and can't figure out what caused to no longer boot into recovery. I tried everything but I'm stuck on the "M". My last option is RSD Lite. I'll let you know if that works.

    talked to the dev of the rom that caused me the prob. Koush is aware of the issue...apparently it is being caused by RM. Koush is pushing an update to fix the issue.
