    Everytime I restart my phone Clockwork Mod recovery starts. I can't get rid of it. I have uninstalled it. I even did a hard reset on the phone last night and the damn thing is still there when I rest the phone. I want it completely off my phone. Any ideas how to get it off?

    Flash SPrecovery or go back to stock. Those are the other two options.

    I just want this thing gone. I'll go back to stock to get ride of it. Do I just unroot and that will get rid of it? What it I root again in the future will it be back?

    I tempted to take it into Verizon and have them fix it. I'll never screw around with this damn mod again. So wish I hadn't. I don't understand how a hard reset doesn't actually reset the phone and get ride of everything. Ovouisly it doesn't.

    Uninstalling The Bootstrapper

    It's a little tricky to completely remove the bootstrapper; that said, follow these foolproof instructions to never see clockworkmod recovery again:

    1. Uninstall Droid X Bootstrapper
    2. Use a root file system explorer (e.g. Root Explorer) to navigate to /system/bin
    3. Delete the file "logwrapper"
    4. Rename the file "logwrapper.bin" to "logwrapper"
    5. Reboot
    Doesn't work. I have two files one named logwrapper and one named logwrapper.bin neither can be renamed, moved or deleted

    Go to this link and read all the stickies and then read anything else that seems to relate to your issue. You need to learn what you are doing before you screw up your phone beyond repair. If you take it to Verizon they will not smile on the fact that you hacked your phone. I assume it is still in warranty and if so, they will void the warranty in all likelihood.

    Good luck.

    I'm obvoiusly not smart enough to get ride of this clockwork mod recovery so how do I get the damn thing to stop showing up when I restart the phone? That's all I want. Hell I'll leave the stupid thing on I just want it to stop preventing my phone from restarting.

    The method you posted earlier will work, you just need root explorer. You have to mount the system as r/w, which only root explorer can do as far as I know. Anyway, once you mount it r/w you can edit said files. You have to be in the folder that the file is located in, and then click r/w at the top.

    I'm done screwing with it. Sending it in to Motorola so they can put it back to stock. All ready have an RMA. Nothing worked and I recommend no one ever for any reason use that Clockwork Mod Recovery. Phones in the mail.

    Thousands of people use clockwork. U had an issue that was user related. Please don't bash a program because u didn't get the outcome u expected. I can email u a one click method to remove cw if u want but it sounds like u have a new phone coming.

    You'll need the program root explorer to mount the filesystem as writeable as it's read-only and your case and won't allow you to make changes to the root filesystem. Once you remove the read-only flag you can delete the hijack and logwrapper and rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper which are all located in the system/bin folder. I do this every time I make a backup

    The above instructions did not have the step to "Press the Mount RO button" in the top right corner of the screen once in the /System/Bin folder. Your files could then be deleted and renamed. This step would be between numbers 2 and 3.

    But what if you change your mind and want to boot up clockwork again after removing it via deleting and modifying the hijack and logwrapper files? I find it hard to beleve that I am the first person to ask this question, but I have not found it asked inx other forums and nobody has an answer for me in the forums I've posted the question in. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated as I can't do anything cool with my droid untill I solve this problem.
