    Droid X Keeps booting into Clockwork Recovery

    I got my phone properly rooted using z4root and installed rom manager and the bootstrap loader, but every time I reboot the phone it goes into clockworkmod recovery I tried clearing the cache and data,force stopping,and uninstalling both rom manager and the bootstrap loader and reinstalling them. I tried using factory reset and started from scratch. but with no success with either of them. I could really use some helpp on this one please.

    If you manually reboot then its suppose to boot into cw recovery. It hijacks the regular boot as a fail safe so you can always have access to clockwork. If you don't like it then sorry. You can get rid of it in root explorer but then you can't backup/restore.

    Well you're going to have to root again and go into root explorer and delete system/bin/hijack and system/bin/logwrapper and then rename system/bin/logwrapper.bin and rename it system/bin/logwrapper

    No problem. I'm normally on droidxforums.com and thought I'd see what I could do to help out on this forum.

    remove /data/.recovery_mode and it won't do it anymore.

    in terminal:

    rm /data/.recovery_mode ;)
