    OK, this is my last try. I got a droid from a friend....trying to update the firmware as it has what appears to be old old version. Anyhow have read posts for the last week and I'm stuck right in the begining of the process.

    I hold X down and power up but nothing except straight to the wallpaper.

    any ideas.

    You have to continue to hold x until it boots into recovery.

    thanks for the quick reply. I have done this for 10min... still nothing.

    x button does work

    other suggestion?

    You could try downloading ROM Manager and using the option 'reboot into recovery'.

    Turn off your phone, then open your keyboard, hold X then hit power, continue to hold X until you see a exclamation point, then volume up and camera button to get into stock recovery.

    BTW, what version does it say you have? Settings> about phone> firmware version
