    So I installed 2.2, then did mrdroids root. I am rooted, but keep getting errors when trying to boot into CWM recovery. CWM is all greyed out, so I am assuming the bootlogger is locked? Where do I go from here

    Thank you! That did the trick, it was kind of scary though...I didnt want to send my phone to hell :)

    Oh one thing though, the link for the CWM fix did not contain the .tar file.

    did you try going to terminal emulator and see if you had the $ instead of #? if the beginning of the command line is #, just type su, hit enter, and you're all set! also, if you open titanium backup, it'll ask for superuser permissions. give it permissions, and you'll be rooted again!
