    ive searched all over here, google, etc,...i want to back up my D2 and i cant get it. im rooted. i installed Quickboot. i also got to that ! in the triangle through a cmd prompt i got from another page. i installed a file "recovery-0.99.2b.img" to the root of my sd card. this is as far as i can get. everything about holding the power button and holding ALT + X doesnt work. i dont have clockworkmod or sp recovery installed cause i figured why pay for it if i can do it for free.
    i hate to ask this again, but ive read so many pages i getting things all twisted in my head now trying to remember where i read what.
    any help or link would be great...thx

    The droid 2 does not support sprecovery at the time. The only way to get a custom recovery is through bootstrap. I am assuming that you are already rooted using the methods for the droid 2. If not stop and read and get an understanding before you proceed. It sounds like you are getting the droid 2 mixed up with the droid 1.

    Assuming you really are rooted:

    1. Install Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery from the market ($2)
    2. Run Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery (that installs Clockwork Recovery)
    3. Select Bootstrap Recovery option
    4. Select Reboot Recovery option

    That will boot you in to Clockwork Recovery (aka CWR).

    Select the Backup option in CWR to make a nandroid backup of your current setup. It will be saved on your SD card in Clockwork/Backup, using todays date as the name.

    To navigate in CWR, volume up/down to move selection up down, camera button to select option, power button to move up a level in the menu.

    To boot to recovery from Android, you can use the bootstrap program.

    You can also download ROM Manager from the market to boot into CWR, start a backup, and install ROMs.

    To boot into recovery from a powered down droid:

    1. Power on
    2. Pull battery when the boot animation (e.g., droid eye) appears
    3. Re-insert battery and power on again

    I don't know that much about the D2 but that can't be the best way!

    Power on while holding X doesn't do it?

    and im pretty sure bootstrap doesnt actually install clockwork. you need rom manager to flash clockwork (easiest way)

    Nope - that gets you the stock recovery.

    On the D2 the stock recovery isn't replaced, it's still there...you get by the stock recovery to Clockwork Recovery due to the bootstrap that Koush came up with, so the only way to launch CWR from Android using ROM Manager or the Bootstrap program, or via the battery pull technique above from powered down.

    Remember, you only need to use the battery pull process above if you are powered down for some reason - most likely need is if you're Droid got into a boot loop and you need to flash back to a working backup. If your droid is up and running simply use ROM Manager or Droid Bootstrap to launch recovery.

    One user reported intermittent success using the power button and camera button, I believe, but it did not work consistently at all.

    Nature of the beast w/the D2 bootloader locked...small price to pay for all the freedom we have on the D2 thanks to Kouh's bootstrap.
