    I rooted my brothers Droid 2 about a week ago and put GummyJAR on for him to see how he liked it... we ended up reverting to stock but quite often when he turns his phone on it automatically goes into the bootstrap recovery menu instead of regularly turning on. I have had this issue a couple times on my rooted X running Liberty but only occasionally and it doesn't bother me.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for how to fix this? Thanks everyone

    This seems to be a common issue. Unfortunately, I do not recall the fix. Someone with more expertise than me will provide, hopefully.

    The only true fix would be to do some removing of files and replace the logwrapper bin that bootstrap places with the original. That or you could sbf it. If your interested I have some instructions for the first one somewhere.

    Yeah if you find the instructions that would be great, it doesn't really bother me but he wants me to try and fix it for him.

    Sorry I was not clearer.

    This is not the first thread I've read indicating that after rooting and installing bootstrap, when powered/turned on, the phone automatically goes into recovery and not it to the OS. Then the user must reboot to get into the OS and use the device.

    Is that what the fix you posted resolves?

    Yes exactly. It has to do with the method bootstrap uses to access the recovery. Its designed to boot in to it if the phone fails to boot as a safety measure but sometimes it gets, I don't know antsy or something, and does it on every boot.
