    Hello all, I'm sure the answer to this question exists somewhere deep and cozy in one of these threads. Searching has not led me to the answer so I'm just going to ask. I just got my wife a Droid and rooted it. I went the old manual route, no superoneclick. Phone is on 2.2.3 stock. I have SU app, downloaded Rom Manager and flashed clockwork. I can't get into recovery to install a new rom. I have held x and powered on, I just get to the "M" then the phone hangs for a few seconds and reboots normally.
    While I'm asking questions. I'd love some suggestions. I am flashing the phone to get some bloatware off of it, speed it up, and keep it stable. I'm a bit of a purist too, so the closer to aosp the better. BUT the big thing is stability and speed since it's for my wife. I run a Droid X2 with CM7 and I love it. Just new to this forum for the little OG droid. Thanks for the help in advance.

    What method did you use to root? Some of the versions had a boot check that would rewrite the stock recovery after a reboot. I would download quickboot from the market, and try to boot into recovery with that app. Let me know what happens!

    same thing as last time. Just hangs on "M" and then screen goes black, "M" comes back and it reboots normal.

    Sounds like the recovery didn't take. Let me find the sbf instructions.

    I have some reading to do. That first link has tons in it. I don't have the same version as what is mentioned in the second link. I do appreciate the help. Do you suggest that I "re-root". If so does that mean I need to get back to stock first?

    I just reflashed clockwork and it started working. Don't know why I didn't consider doing that hours ago. I'm such a rookie sometimes.

    Great, Im glad that worked! I would look into flashing RZR recovery, it is bullet proof, and a lot of OG Droid users have the same problems with Clockwork.

    I will try RZR recovery. I'll also take some ROM recommendations if you've got them.

    cyanogen mod 7 best rom that I've used so far. I don't like the bugless beast roms also just saying. But yes CM7 is the coolest and most smooth rom I've used with my og droid.
