    so i flashed the new clockwork with rom manager. i downloaded a new rom and that was the last time the recovery worked. after i set everything up on the new rom (ud froyo), i went back to rom manager to install a kernel, it was from the last name in the list in rom manager...it wasn't a regular name, it was like sdfjh or something. i downloaded the kernel, rebooted to recovery, and it stays stuck at the m logo.

    after spending about 20 mins looking at a program called rsdlite to flash sprecovery so i could flash a new rom, the phone finally booted before i was about to flash it. at this point i figure it was that weird kernel that i installed, so i went back to rom manager, reboot into recovery so that i could install a p3 kernel, once again i'm stuck at the m logo

    i have, or had, the newest clockwork recovery which is 2. something, and i flashed it about 4 times before i rebooted but im still stuck even after pulling the battery for a couple minutes and holding the x key when i boot it back up

    Reflash an older version of recovery.

    Yeah, the last several clockwork updates have been broken. Go back to 1.8.1.4 (at the bottom of the page on Rom Manager). Flash it twice to be sure and you should be OK. The last update doesn't work for me either.

    If this doesn't work, flash SPRecovery, boot into recovery, then reboot and flash the older clockwork version again. I've had to do this once. Should work.

    I never did it but see if you can manually flash SPRecovery. If you cannot, then RSD Lite.

    the problem is that i can't do anything with any recovery, whenever i get the phone back up i'll flash the older clockwork, but i'll give this another 15 mins or so, and a couple battery pulls before i try to do the rsd lite...although i'm still not 100% sure on how to use..so far i have rsd lite and an sprecovery sbf..now i'm guessing i go into boot mode, then flash with the rsd lite using the sprecovery??

    awesome it worked..i'll be sticking with 1.8.1.4 for a while. so since i never used rsd lite, when would be the right the time to use it. would i only need it if recovery never would have came back??

    did you reflash whatever recovery you wanted and then wipe 3 times before you installed?

    I flashed a rom and lost launcher.apk so I my phone would just stick to the droid eye boot screen forever. I then couldn't get into recovery to restore my back up because clockwork was acting sketchy. If this ever happens just flash sp recovery then flash back and it should work. Anyways, I had to use rsd lite to flash 2.1 sbf back and it worked fine. It's a pretty easy fix, just takes a little bit of time. So to answer your question, yes if recovery wasn't working and you couldn't get past the boot screen you would have to flash the sbf file with rsd lite.

    ok i'll keep that in mind, and because you can use rsd lite, there's really no way to brick this phone..

    i installed the jrummy from rom manager, and i checked wipe data/cache before it rebooted

    My first post, but I hope it works for you in fixing the boot issue. No need to down grade to older version of CW, no need RSDlite. this works for me...

    * in Rom Manager, Flash Alternate Recover to SPRecovery 0.99.3b
    * Reboot into Recovery
    * in SPRecovery, simple reboot
    * After boot, go back to Rom Manager, and reflash CW mod 2.0.0.5
    * Now you should be able to boot to CW mod recovery.

    Alternatively I think you can just flash sp recovery then right after flash clockwork and it should work just fine. I don't know this from personal experience but people have posted that his has fixed their recovery.
