    Hello sir,
    First off you should follow these steps to ensure you have root...

    http://www.google.com/m/url?client=...UQFjAB&usg=AFQjCNHDoIpen3kKvyXF3WLIoPUpzJLAzQ

    Then get ROM Manager and reflash the recovery image for your device. From there you can backup and flash and what not. I recommend getting Titanium backup also just to make sure that you have busybox installed.

    If your looking to boot into the recovery and manually manage your phone, Then I recommend downloading Koush's bootstrap from the market. You will select bootstrap recovery then reboot recovery. This is the best way to do this. If you ever need to boot up from a battery pull or cant access the above listed apps then try holding down the power button until the" M" and then release it quick... This has worked for me but not everytime...

    Good luck sorry if this doesnt make sense I posted it from my phone...

    no, its not a free app, you can download it from koush's website or there are many links in this forum. Read the Hacking/Rom install class sticky in the droid 2 hacks section, there is alot of good info as well as links there. Another thing you need to download rsd lite and get the SBF file for your phone which can be found in the sticky I was talking about above because unlike the droid our phones (droid 2's) don't have recovery images as of yet so SBF is the only way to go. If you still need help after going through the hacking /install class, just ask around and we'll figure it out.
