    Alright, here's the situation Rom Manager claims it is flashing the recovery to Clockwork, when I hit the button to load into Recovery Mode, the phone just boots into the OS. I have searched around and read solutions other people have posted such as flashing back and forth between recoveries and then rebooting. I have tried this method and it hasn't fixed my problem, which is that I can't get into the recovery menu at all. I have been all around the Web looking for solutions to my problem. I've tried manually flashing the recovery with ADB, with no success. I'm sure if anyone has found a good guide that they could recommend, I would gladly give it another shot with ADB. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance.

    I'm gathering you are rooted? Which method did you use to root?
    Has it worked before?

    I rooted originally with the ADB shell, way back in probably March of this year. Originally it used SP Recovery, then when I decided to try out some different roms i used Rom Manager. Using Rom Manager I flashed the recovery to Clockwork, and it worked for the longest time, then all of a sudden it stopped working. I have tried to flash back to SP and RM says the flash works, however as mentioned in the OP it always goes straight to the OS. I have tried booting from recovery through RM and from Power+X still with no success.

    I have this happen from time to time. What I do is flash an older clockwork then reflash the latest. I go back 2 or 3 versions. It seems to do the trick for me.

    Here's what works for me every time:

    1. Flash SPR. Then reflash SPR until you get the notification pop up (saying the installation was successful) very, very quickly (2-5 seconds).

    2. Flash Clockwork. Then reflash CW until you get the notification pop up (saying the installation was successful) very, very quickly (2-5 seconds).

    Good luck.

    are you still rooted?

    su in terminal gives you a #?

    I am having a difficult time with the fact that it just stopped working.

    Yes and Yes, although I just typed in su, and it requested my permission again. I'm going to try to reboot into recovery and see if that was the problem.

    The only thing i would try now is maybe visiting the first link in my sig and sbf'ing SPRecovery on?
    I know you don't have a way to backup right now, but I don't know where to send you.

    All the other options have been tried it seems.

    Maybe wait a bit to see if someone else has more input?
