    I mash a combo of volume up/down camera button and the home button as its powering on.... it sometimes goes to the bootloader tho.... I know there's a specific button as combo that involves those buttons, but not positive what it is. Im curious too.... I just get it by luck when I get looped...

    Power and volume down at the same time. This will bring you to the bootloader the select recovery by pressing down on the volume button then once it is highlighted press the power button and your phone will then boot into clockwork recovery. This only works if you have flashed clockwork prior.

    I didnt know the systems were so different that general procedures for clockwork werent appreciated?

    Try doing a battery pull when the phone is still on, pop the battery back in and plug the phone into a wall charger (not sure if wall/usb matters), then turn it on. This should usually be the failsafe that forces clockwork to boot.

    Also, droid 2 global up in this thread. Whoops wrong forum.

    I can't get my phone to boot to the loader screen longer than two seconds before it starts going into wanting to update the radio. I even took out the SD card and the same thing happens. Maybe toast. I was trying to update a rom. If I could find some way to stay on the loader screen, I would be ok, but the phone automatically trys and asks if I want to update the radio. No matter if I say yes or no, I can't get to recovery. Any ideas?

    did you download the update radio to your sd's root folder and update it at some point? ...if so, then did you delete it off of the root folder? - if not, then delete the file 'PG05IMG.zip' from the sd's root folder
    - if that's not the problem, then I got nuttin'

    I have to buy a micro sd to sd card adapter to be able to see the card. I will then be able to delete the file.

    you can do it from your phone using a file manager - I have Root Explorer, but that costs $ ... you can get ASTRO File Manager, or ES File Explorer, I'm sure there's others as well

    There in lies the rub, I can't boot up my phone or boot it to recovery. I need to clear the PG051 file off the SD card before it will let me boot into recovery. When I try booting up normally, it gets frozen at the Thunderstorm boot up screen. Thats what caused the initial problem in the first place.
