    EDIT: scratch that. after flashing the recovery about 10 times it finally started booting to it... but now whenever I boot my DX, it goes to CW recovery, where I have to reboot it from there in order to get things running... HELP!

    I've got the ROM manager, bootstrap recovery, and clockworkmod recovery installed; DX; rooted 2.1.

    I had this on my previous DX with no issues, but for some reason, I can't get my new device to boot into clockworkmod recovery (manually, via bootstrapper, via rom manager)...

    any ideas?

    about to "return" this app and leave a bad rating :(

    ok so im trying to do the same thing you are except i cannot get the recovery to work. Rom manager says its installed and i cant revert, there is no option to erase in settings and i have reinstalled it about 5 times and still not getting anywhere. What did you do to finally get it to boot into recovery?

    so you are/have:

    root
    rom manager
    bootstrap recovery
    clockworkmod recovery
    busybox (not sure if this is needed here... I can never remember, but I have it)
    SU permissions applied
    ?

    I just kept reflashing the current recovery (it wouldn't let me download older recoveries or install an alternate...) and rebooting using the rom manager and it finally started to boot to the recovery...

    I thought we didnt need the bootstrap with the CWM, i could have swore i seen a post about not needing it after a while. I installed bootstrap and now its booting in just fine, Im just uneducated is all. BTW im running the leaked 2.2 rooted, trying to install the FLYX rom.

    haha, I can never figure out exactly what's needed... it's rarely clearly stated and it's different in each place you read.

    On your issue have you tried loading the 2.2 leak yet? FLYX is installing on mine right now.

    Nah, I've thought about it though. I'm new to all of this and I was kind of wanting to see what the official stock 2.2 looked like first then look at custom roms based off of that. To be honest rooted stock 2.1 has given me all the functionality and UI experience I need...

    I would try re-flashing both the recovery and the bootstrapper. Make sure both proggies have SU rights.

    I've been trying the same thing, however while going down this "checklist" I noticed when I go in to superuser it doesn't list anything for permissions... Also in Rom Manager if I try fix permissions, it comes up with an error...

    I installed and ran Bootstrap
    then ran rom manager to Flash Clockwork Mod recovery says it completed
    but if I try reboot into recovery I click it and nothing happens...

    Is it possible my phone isn't rooted, even tho I have SU app??


    EDIT: Never mind, turns out I did loose root some how, re-rooted, bootstrapped, flashed Clockwork Recovery, and everything worked fine...

    When you run bootstrap does a box pop up in the bottom saying the access was granted to bootstrap?? same when you load rom manager, and Flash ClockworkMod Recovery, does a box pop up asking for superuser permission??

    If these boxes don't pop up, then open the Superuser app, and see if there is anything listed... if there is nothing listed, then you have the superuser app installed, but lost root access... that was what happen to me, I assume because when I updated to the leaked 2.2 I must not have moved the files that needed to be moved.

    If this is the case, the easiest way for me was to sbf back to 2.1, then root, the install bootstrap, rom manager, then from rom manager I just updated to 2.2 from the downloaded roms/stock Images/Verizon Droid X 2.2

    then I was back to 2.2 rooted.

    EDIT: Also keep in mind that if the phone is NOT properly rooted, neither Bootstrap or Rom Manager will tell you when you flash, it acts like all is well, even tho it isn't... thats what stumped me for so long

    So what is the exact process to boot into CW recovery from powered down state.

    When does one need to pull the battery?

    Thanks.

    Arcstriker.. thank you for replying back. My issue is not bumping up to 2.2. I can do that now with my eye closed :)... the issue is once i get 2.2 on there, i open RomManager, download FlyxFinal, select both boxes... but the phone wont reboot. it seems to me that RomManager lost Root during the 2.2 upgrade. I have been reading online that the latest RomManager is a bit flaky. Is there a work around or anything that could be done?

    or hold power and the search (magnifying glass) button to boot into recovery....maKE SURE YOU HAVE SU PERMISSION..and you actually didnt loose root thru upgrade or flasing a rom etc.

    I had the same issue. Downloaded and installed Bootstrap, and Clockworkmod Recovery. Ran Bootstrap and then went to install FlyX and it didnt restart and install. Turns out neither programs were running with SU privileges. Rebooted the phone, when I re-opened Bootstrap and Clockworkmod recovery they prompted for SU privileges. I then patched the bootstrap and ran the install and it worked. :)
