    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...
