    Try going into ROM Manager, flashing SPrecovery and then back to Clockwork. That has worked for me several times.

    There are on going issues with 2.2 and CW/ROM Manager that is not ROM specific.

    Good luck...

    Same problem here, can't get into recovery with the latest CW recovery. I had to flash a previous version to get recovery access back.

    Same problem here. I'd like to upgrade from bbFroyo0.1 to 0.2.1 but my phone will not boot into recovery anymore. Whether I manually hold X at startup or do a reboot into recovery from RomManager I cannot get into the recovery screen. This is quite a bummer.

    i was having this problem for awhile now, even when i was running bugless v.01. when i went to flash v.02 i couldn't get into recovery so i tried a few times to get it to load through clockwork. dangerous because if something went wrong i might have had some real problems not being able to get into recovery. it would stay stuck at the M screen for almost a minute, turn off and then boot normally. but i got it to flash the rom after a couple tries.

    i got recovery back by;

    1. flashing SPrecovery from clockwork (in ROM manager)

    2. restart phone and let boot normally

    3. flash latest clockwork recovery (2.0.0.4 i think) from ROM manager

    4. restart phone and let boot normally

    5. after this i can access recovery from; holding x, from within ROM manager and pete's shortcuts in bugless.

    (credit to Dkelly701) i did not know this till this was suggested to me.

    good luck.

    I was about to try what you suggested and when I went into RomManager to flash it said there was an update. I updated to 2.0.0.5 and I now have access to recovery.
