    I have to return this phone to Verizon tomorrow. I had it rooted and running a ROM. I restored to an earlier nandroid backup, did a factory reset, and unrooted. Everything is back to stock, but whenever I turn the phone on it still boots into recovery/CWM (the black screen with green text). I cannot figure out how to get it to stop doing that. I figured that may be happening because I didn't uninstall Bootstrap before, just did a wipe. So I even reinstalled Bootstrap and then uninstalled it, and it's still booting into recovery/CWM.

    Any help?

    Solved. I'd lock this thread but I don't see an option to.
    Run "su"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    Reboot

    I'd try using the search button.. someone posted a link and or instructions on how to remove CWM from your phone. I know its 2-3 command lines in Terminal Emulator.. May not be much help, as I don't have a computer right now. But maybe this will give you a start!

    Goodluck!

    I'll give it a shot. I did a handful of searches before posting, but everything seemed to be people who had issues booting into recovery while CWM was still installed. Couldn't find anything related to my situation though, and since I don't have a whole lot of free time tomorrow, I'm hoping someone will have a solution.

    But I'll search for the thread you were describing.

    Now that I knew to search for something involving the terminal, I found it, and it worked. Can finally go to bed. dancedroid Thanks for the advice Duhsten.

    If anyone has the same problem or comes here from a search later on, the instructions are here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-2-hacks/85127-how-install-remove-bootstrap-recovery.html

    Just go to terminal emulator

    Run "su"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    Reboot
