    So I was gonna install a custom ROM but somewhere along the way I decided I should hold off until I know a little bit more about what I'm doing. So what I need is for someone to help me undo what I've done. So here's what I've done to this point.

    I installed ROM Manager and made a backup and installed clockwork. Somehow my recovery menu broke or something because all I see is a yellow exclamation point with a phone next to it. I need help not only fixing my recovery menu but also restoring it to the stock recovery menu (prior to clockwork) if possible. My phone is rooted but I plan on keeping it rooted. Oh and I'm still running the stock ROM. Hopefully I can restore the recovery menu without wiping my data which I still have.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It's not "broke", that's the stock recovery image. Which recovery were you trying to install?

    It sounds like he tried installing clockworkmod through ROM manager. Does koush's bootstrapper work for the Tbolt?

    Off topic (problem is on a D1) but no, it has to be done with ROM Manager to my knowledge.
    OP, try using an older version of RM and try again. Also, backups in RM aren't very reliable, I'd suggest making another backup in recovery directly...when you get it going.

    So you're telling me that should I ever need to return it for whatever reason (after I unroot it of course) and the verizon rep looks at it that's what the recovery should look like?
