    How do I install SPRecovery? I downloaded rom manager, and it put a different recovery on my rooted moto droid. I would like to reinstall SPRecovery. Does anybody know how I would do that?

    You should be able to scroll down and flash alternate recovery (sp recovery) can you see it in the app?

    DMupdater also has this ability and its in the market (I believe) as well. This is the way you had to do it in the old days -- and prior to that the command line -- but who is counting.

    I try to flash it with ROM and it says it is successful but when I reboot into recovery.. all I get is the M logo. Will it look like the clockwork mod screen? I am trying to install a new ROM

    Go back into Rom Manager and flash Clockwork Recovery and then reflash SPR. It will look similar to CW, but not exactly the same. Here's some Rom installation instructions:

    Installation Instructions [SPRecovery]
    1) Download the ROM of your choice
    2) Rename to "update.zip" and place on the root of your SD Card
    3) Reboot into SPRecovery
    4) Select "install" from the SPRecovery menu
    5) Select "allow update.zip"
    6) Select "Install update.zip Depreciated"
    7) Let it install your ROM
    8) Press power button to return to main screen of SPRecovery
    9) Select “reboot system now”
    10) Let the ROM load


    Note: If the ROM is deodexed then the first boot will take a long time, every other reboot will go by fast


    Installation Instructions [ClockWork]
    1) Download the ROM of your choice and place somewhere on your SD Card
    2) Reboot into ClockWork recovery

    3) Scroll down and select “Nandroid
    4) Select “Backup
    5) After backup is complete
    6) Select “Wipe data”
    7) Select “Wipe Cache
    8) Select “Install zip from sdcard”

    9) select “Choose Zip from sdcard”
    10) Navigate to where you placed the ROM and select it
    11) On the Confirm Install screen scroll down and select “Yes

    12) Your ROM will be installed
    13) Reboot from the main screen of ClockWork Recovery


    NOTES: I only do the wipes when new rom is from a different Dev or is based on different OS version. The first boot of a new rom quite often takes a very long time. Do not panic, be patient

    I did the same thing you did. I flashed clockwork and tried to flash alternate recovery (sprecovery) and it never stuck. I ended up using clockwork to install the mod. It worked out fine. You need to do a battery pull when it gets stuck at the Motorola logo, same thing was happening to me.

    I was also referred to use the other recovery after rom installation.

    That's just it. I'm having the same problem and even with SPRecovery flashed in Rom Manager, the phone does not get past the "M" logo. With the "X" depressed it just hangs. Only with a battery pull will the phone boot normally; but it appears to go through Post twice!

    Thoughts? I'm baffled.

    Well its time to move past sprecovery. Get clockwork running and flash rzrecovery with the update.zip and you get sprecovery+.

    Sometimes Rom Manager doesn't do a good job of installing either Clockwork or SPR. Here's my notes on getting CW working:

    Clockwork Notes:

    The first thing about Clockwork is trying to get Rom Manager to flash a good copy onto your phone. Here is a fool proof method to determine whether you have a good copy before trying to reboot into it. Begin by scrolling down and flashing the alternative recovery – SpRecovery. After it successfully loads, scroll up and flash Clockwork. If it takes longer than 3-5 seconds to get the popup telling you the install was successful, reflash it over and over until you do get that popup in 3-5 seconds. Once that happens, you have a good install.

    Once you have rebooted into Clockwork and are navigating through its menu, if at any time it hesitates that means it is about to reboot automatically. When Clockwork does reboot and the screen goes dark, immediately press and hold the X key until the phone reboots back into Clockwork. Clockwork will now be totally stable until you finish.

    If the first thing you do with Clockwork, during any particular session, is to try and make a Nandroid backup and you get an error message (without regard to what it says), you should just wait a few seconds and not do anything. That is because Clockwork is about to reboot the phone. As stated above, as soon as the screen goes dark, press and hold the X key until the phone reboots back into Clockwork. Then start over and Clockwork will work as it was intended for the rest of the session.

    And Bayou is being rather diplomatic in saying that RM "sometimes" has trouble flashing recoveries... I second jstaff's recommendation - flash rzr and get on with enjoying your phone. RZ has a sbf file to flash his recovery, if you can't flash thru either SPR or CWM. but, most likely, if you follow the advice of flashing alternate recoveries multiple times, you'll get one of them to take; and then you can flash rzr.

    Yeah, I did leave that part out - only use Rom Manager to flash a good CW or SPR and then use that to flash RZR. You'll have no more recovery problems then. RZR is the most stable and feature filled recovery.
