First off, just to appease anyone taking the time to read this (which I appreciate), I DID search this forum as well as many others for an answer before posting. So first off.. Droid X, rooted with Z4Root, everything has always been peachy, never tried to install ROMS before but I am finally so sick of the bloat and general speed that I wanted to try a custom ROM. Installed Rom Manager 126.96.36.199 Flashed ClockworkMod Recovery V.188.8.131.52 If I select "Reboot into recovery" it just reboots the phone. If I select "Backup Current Rom" it just reboots the phone after I select a date/name for the backup. If I go into "Manage and Restore Backups" there are no backups. I ran the "Repair File Associations" thing and it combed through thousands of files and reset switches etc. If I reboot the phone and hold down the HOME button and then hit Search at the little android guy (!) it goes into the stock recovery console. Once there I can select the various "WIPE" options, which scare me, or to install the Update.zip Clockworkmod created. When I do this I get: "E: failed to verify whole-file signature E:Signature verification failed" and then my only option is to reboot the phone again. I found another boot option, by holding down the Volume Down and Camera button during boot I get a non interactive screen that just says USB and Battery are OK and a few other things but there is nothing I can actually do there. I have found instructions on how to manually install ROMs but I thought this ROM Manager thing was pretty handy and I know I want to back up the entire phone first so it does that too. I have tried UnRooting my phone and it made no difference other than ROM Manager not working other than to show me the menus. I have found a lot of work-arounds for other phones but not much for the Droid X. I must be missing something because no matter what I do I can't get it to create a backup or launch into the Clockwork Recovery application on reboot.
