    I'm having a hard time booting into recovery mode. Hopefully someone here can help. When I try to boot the phone into recovery mode (or select Reboot into Recovery from ROM Manager) all I get is the little logo with the triangle and exclamation sign inside of it, and a phone next to that. If I recall correctly from the last time I went through this, it's all normal. However, it just sits on that screen until I pull the battery. I let it sit for 10 minutes, nothing.

    So, what am I doing wrong? Also, it's a Droid 1, running 2.2.2. It's rooted, and running the stock ROM.

    Try this. With the phone off, pull the keyboard out and press the X and hold it. Then press the on button and see if that helps you out.

    I thought I had tried that, but I wasn't certain. So I tried again. Same issue, still just hangs on the logo and never actually goes into Recovery.

    OK, lets see if I can move you to an area where you can get better assistance. I have a feeling it's an issue with ROM manager but I don't know how to fix it.

    I was thinking that too. I've been having nothing but problems with the phone for the last 3 or 4 months. Just need to add this to the list of reasons I really need to upgrade to a new handset.

    Thanks for moving it to the proper section of the forum. I wasn't sure where best to put it. :)

    If it looks like this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/at...less-os-version-droid_stock_recovery_logo.gif, its the stock recovery. If so, pressing the center of the volume rocker + the camera button at the same time will get you into recovery. If it looks like this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/at...-1-regardless-os-version-mc1_cr_11_result.png, minus the red writing, then it is the stock recovery. If so, then you'll probably need to sbf a custom recovery using rsd lite. Did you take the recent ota? If so, you may need to re-root. To check if your rooted, download a terminal app from the market and type "su". It should change from "$" to "#" if your rooted. Or download a root only app like ShootMe, from the market, and see if it asks and allows you superuser permission. Let us know how it goes.

    Yeah, I rooted again since the 2.2.2 OTA update.

    Using your method, I get a screen that says:

    "Bootloader
    2C.7C

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable"

    I'm so sorry, I told you wrong. Press up on the volume rocker + the camera button.

    A little more background as to my phone.

    Before the 2.2 Update, I was running CM6. I had some problems with the phone (hardware and dealing with the screen, not software issues), and did a full factory reset, de-rooted, and brought it in to Verizon for service. They wouldn't fix the phone under warranty, so I just left it de-rooted on the factory ROM. Not sure if this info helps, but it's worth mentioning. I'm trying to run the MIUI ROM, as I'm told it runs rather fast and stable, which is what I want more than anything until I can upgrade to a new phone.

    Haha, this worked. All I did was flash the alternative (SPRecovery), then flashed it again with Clockwork, re-booted, and huzzah!

    Don't know what the issue was, but it's fixed now. Thanks everybody! I really appreciate it!

    How did you root?

    FRS is not disabled if you use superoneclick.

    I've actually used both methods. I think I must have used SuperOneClick last time, so that may have been the issue.

    I installed the MIUI Rom, and it runs blazing fast, but still seems to be pretty buggy on my phone. Certain applications cause the phone to reboot and get stuck in a bootloop. But thankfully everything is squared away and I had the foresight to use Titanium and do a Nandroid backup before messing with it. Looks like I'm headed back to CM now!
