    that's pretty common. clockwork gets to be a little sticky sometimes. you have two options, you can either re root your phone and remove a few files or simply sbf it to get everything back to stock.

    here are the steps. if you mess something up you will have to sbf, so be carefull and charge your battery first just in case.

    "Removing Bootstrap Recovery:

    Removal from an Androidforums post:

    UNINSTALL the Recovery APK (Droid X Bootstrapper) in Settings, Applications
    Reboot
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    Reboot

    or

    1. Reroot
    2. Get root explorer in the market
    3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
    4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
    5. In top right corner tap r/w
    6. Delete the file called hijack
    7. Delete logwrapper
    8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
    9. Reboot and it should be gone.

    If this screws up you'll need RSD Lite"

    Now that it is announced that the Droid X will get Gingerbread tomorrow or the near future, is it a good idea to unroot and remove root tools to get that update? i have a custom boot logo as well. will this same method work to root again once the Gingerbread OTA hits?

    I don't know much about the "X", but I think the same person/people who made this hack have already got rooting Gingerbread covered with an app called "Gingerbreak". I've got a few versions of it and I think it's posted over at xda. As far as unrooting your "X", I don't know.

    Having some trouble..... Today my Droid 2 said it wanted an update. I successfully unrooted using the instructions above and told it to update. Unfortunately clockwork recovery mod seems to be getting in the middle of the reboot. It gives me the option to apply the update but then says it can't find it. Now I'm stuck unrooted and unable to update. Any tips appreciated!

    When I try to reroot I get 'cannot find adb'

    Hehehe. LMAO. All the Droid 1's are older now, lol.

    What you meant to say is if it is on an older android version (I think FRG83D, definately FRG22D) then z4root will work. However that is highly unlikely since the OTA updates get pushed out and it's pretty hard to deny them unless, of course, your phone is already rooted; making this whole conversation moot.

    Your welcome.
