    Alright, So yesterday I was rooting my droid and did so successfully. But as I was doing a nandroid back up. I failed on my first attempt, so decided to do a second try (was doing it off the droidreview tutorial on youtube) he left out two important steps so i added those steps in and i clicked recovery mode and it would start my phone as normal. I tried again and again no luck! i even tried to do it with the power button and x just reboots and reboots until i let go and then itll start normally

    Did you root with DMupdater? Do you have DroidMod currently on the device?

    It's not possible to have a phone that boots with no recovery mode. Youre def doing something wrong.

    are you holding x the entire time; because whther you rooted or not you will go int to recovery mode the diff is this:

    Unrooted:

    Step 3: Preparing the Droid for Root
    Once you have unmounted the phone, it is now time to prepare the Droid to receive the Root files. You will be accessing Recovery Mode to do this, a special Android console which can be used to manually recover and install updates. Start by powering down the phone completely.
    While holding “X” on the physical keyboard, hold the power button to turn on the phone. You may let go of the power button, but do not let go of X.
    [​IMG]
    After a few seconds, an Exclamation Mark icon will appear. You may now let go of X. To access Recovery Mode from the exclamation mark icon, hold the volume up button and then press the camera button.

    rooted with sprecovery:

    Step 1: Boot into SPRecovery
    Power down the Droid completely.
    While holding “X” on the physical keyboard, hold the power button to turn on the phone. You may let go of the power button, but do not let go of X.
    [​IMG]
    After a few seconds, a green-gold colored Android logo should appear behind the SPRecovery Console menu.
    [​IMG]
    You may now let go of X and are now ready to perform a Nandroid backup.

    Right where it says click this link from your phones browser.

    If youre rooted, and the bootloader is jacked and you take it back...and if they figure out you tried rooting.....your next verizon bill will be a bit more than expected.

    you have the little ninja dude which is SU. Now all you need to do is install a terminal emulator from the market and open it. Once in the emulator type:

    su <enter>
    reboot recovery <enter>

    That should automatically reboot your Droid into recovery mode.
