    Just as the title says, I downgraded my phone to 2.0.1 to prepare to root it...but im unable to actually root it because my phone wont start in recovery mode. I've held down X while starting the phone over and over again, but all i get is the motorola 'M' stuck on a loop.

    Can anyone tell my why this is? or give me another way of starting in recovery mode? Again, i have not rooted yet.


    Thanks

    Pretty sure u gotta flash a recovery. Get ROM manager from market and flash recovery. Then u can flash ROMS from ROM manager.

    You have to root first or RMgr won't work.
