    I'm sorry I had to make another thread about this but I need help immediately.

    I used Z4root to root my DX. I then installed Rom Manager and Droid X Recovery Bootstrap. I clicked "Bootstrap Reocvery" and then tapped "Reboot Recovery". It rebooted me into ClockworkMod Recovery 2.5.0.6. I made a backup and rebooted my phone. Now my Market wont work, I can't flash anything from Rom Mananger (the latest CW recovery is 2.5.0.7 not 2.5.0.6), my Email won't sync. Things are going haywire! Seems like my data isn't working or something? When I unrooted and unistalled everything, the Market worked again, but the Clockwork Recovery was still on my phone. How is that possible if Droid X Recovery Bootstrap is uninstalled? ​

    Did you flash a ROM?

    Nope. I can't even get anything to work, let alone flash a rom. I'm so angry right now, I've spent 4 hrs rooting/unrooting with this Z4ROOT tool and Koush Droid X Recovery. How can I make sure that X Recovery is gone and my phone is back to stock? I don't think this whole root thing is going to work for me, this is ridiculous:icon_evil:!

    when you were in recovery did you do anything else? making a backup shouldnt do anything else to the system..

    even if you uninstall teh bootstrap app it is still there unless you physically remove its files in the system folder

    yes, recovery. i just tried using the z4root to root again. it says it rooted my phone and now its going to reboot. my phones reboots right into clockwork though? doesnt that mean there was an error somewhere? also i dont even have droid x recovery on my phone that why i thought it was weird that im still getting clockwork recovery. i dont want to unroot but im getting too many problems.

    rebooting into recovery when not intended is a common issue for a lot of users.

    maybe try a factory reset to see if you can get everything working again..

    If you just set the phone up, try SBFing the phone back to stock with the right SBF image, then starting over.

    As an option this stinks like day-old cheese, but it has the advantage of giving you a totally clean slate to start re-rooting. :)

    how do i do that? i dont know where to find the file and which one to use. do i just use rsdlite 4.6, thats the one i have. my phone came with 2.2.

    i also just did this to try and remove the X Recovery:
    delete /system/bin/hijack and /system/bin/logwrapper
    Then rename /system/bin/logwrapper.bin to /system/bin/logwrapper

    It's a last-resort thing, just like the D1, but due to the unique archetecture of both the D2 and the DX it happens more than on the D1 unless people get a bit... overextended on the D1. :)

    I'm guessing, due to the fact that you got the phone in the last 48 hours (I remember you saying something in another thread ;)), that you got the 2.3 build. With that in mind you'll want the team blackhat 2.3 SBF. I think that's over on rootzwiki, but I could be wrong.

    Here, download the program in the link below. It will allow you to download the 2.2 SBF file, RSD Lite 4.8 and whatever else you might need... it really helped me out so far in terms of saving time of me searching endlessly for what I needed.

    Oh, and you'll want to use 4.7 or 4.8 of RSD Lite, not 4.6.

    Forgot to mention that. Thanks for the save, BD.

    @bd1212 & @furbearingmammal

    Im still rooted. I now just went into the setting on the DX and did a system reset to wipe everything and now everything seems to work again. im still rooted b/c i can use drocap2 and rootexplorer. i have not put the Droid X Recovery by Koush back on yet or Rom Manager. I'm guessing one of those was causing my problems with not being able to access the Market, Gmail, etc. Unless a system reset just solved all my problems? What is my next step? Should I install Bootstrap now? What the best way to finish my rooting process. all i have done so far was use z4root to root my phone, i uninstalled the Bootstrap and deleted the files in the system folder. i also removed rom manager. so now im assuming ive started fresh again with just root.

    Bump on this post. This program is very easy to use and contains RSD Lite 4.8 and the FULL Froyo 2.2 SBF file. All you need to do is click on the name of whatever you want to download and click "Download". Once it is done, it will appear on your desktop.

    This program saved my countless hours of searching for the programs using google or the like.

    If you want to do ROMs you'll need Bootstrap and RM. If you just want root then you're good to go with it rooted this way. If you want backups you'll need RM to flash Clockwork.

    Here's a helpful link; just remember that you're on an X and not the D2 when reading the instructions. ;)

    I'd suggest using Bootstrapper and flashing a custom ROM/theme. A good ROM is rubiX focused and a good theme is the Juice theme for rubiX focused. If you have gtalk and would like, I can try to help you get through the process... even though I don't have a DX yet lol.

    my DX came with 2.2. if I ever need flash stock 2.2 back on my phone, for whatever reason, do I use the "DROID X 2.2 SBF" file from that "TimeBomb" app you just sent me?
