    When I try and get into recovery (power + X key) I end up getting the triangle with the yellow ! but no recovery. What the heck happened and how can I get recovery on my phone again so I can root it again.

    Yesterday, I was updating to 2.2 using the FRG01B .sbf file that is posted on the site and I would get the FRG22B OTA update shortly thereafter, so I figured I was all set to root. When I tried to get into recovery, I got the triangle with the yellow ! and don't know how that happened. I've re-flashed using RSD Lite several times even going back to using the 2.0.1 .sbf file to see if it was the file but I still can't get into recovery. Any ideas on what happened and how I can get recovery back?

    Thanks

    Like abe said that is the stock recovery. You need to use the link he said to root safely

    That's what I want to do but how do I get there if I can't get into recovery to do the update.zip to install root?

    If you follow the steps, before you get to flashing the update.zip you will be installing a custom recovery. Read :)

    It's amazing how dumb I am.... I have done this whole process so many times that I forgot one of the steps and didn't realize it until I re-read it.

    Thanks for all your help.
