    I'm trying to install custom roms and after following several guides I've always been stuck at one point; I can't get the phone to boot into recovery mode to make a nandroid backup. It always stays on this screen forever: /!\
    Any help would be appreciated

    Well, the screen that has the /!\ symbol is the default recovery screen...and you press the volume up button and camera button at the same time to get to the default recovery menu...BUT that is not the recovery menu that allows you to make nandroid backups and restores...

    You need to get the flash_image file and the SPRecovery file also to flash to your Droid to get the custom recovery screen that allows you to do all these things

    First off, if you're getting that screen you don't have sprecovery, and without that you can't make a nandroid backup.

    Second to get to recovery, I know everyone says hit up on volume and camera at same time. Well try up volumeand while holding that down press camera button and see if that gets ya there.
