    So last night I recently rooted my droid Bionic. After I did that I installed Bionic Bootstrap and went into that and set up a back up. After that I upgraded to 5.5.893 so I would be able to apply the Purity ROM ( http://www.droidforums.net/forum/th3ory-rom-bionic/181450-rom-purity-v2-4-tpax-11-09-2011-a.html ). I moved the file to my SD card, then opened Bionic Bootstrapper and clicked BootStrap Recovery and it instantly said "Success!" so I clicked Reboot Recovery and nothing happens. Anybody know what to do? Please leave a detailed explanation since I'm still fairly new to this.

    Thanks

    I deleted the other one. For some reason your thread didn't go through right away.

    Nevermind. You upgraded which means you are in lala land regarding root. You will have to reroot, if not unroot them reroot.

    I believe so. Sorry still a little unfamiliar with a lotta the terms. My phone is rooted and I can access Superuser and other rooted apps.

    ...before you do anything else I would go back into bootstrap and bootstrap recovery again, maybe two or three times in a row and then try to boot into recovery

    It says "Success!" each time i do it. When I initially set up the backup through this program, when I clicked Bootstrap Recovery I had to allow the program first through a window that popped up before it said "Success!" but now it just goes straight to "Success!" and when I click Reboot Recovery, nothing happens still.

    Also this is how I went about rooting my phone and setting up the backup.

    So you have been in recovery via bootstrapper before - try uninstalling the bionic bootstrapper application and reinstalling it

    It won't mess with your backup, that is stored on your SD card and unless you format the card it will remain untouched during any factory reset or community hacks you apply

    When you apply the bootstrap do you get a small popup on the bottom of your screen explaining that Bionic Bootstrapper has been granted Superuser Permissions ?

    No, I didnt see anything like that pop up. After I downloaded it, I hit install and nothing different happened when I tried the reboot.

    Every time I hit it on mine I get a superuser access granted pop up, I would begin to wonder if you are truly rooted or not - what other root apps do you have installed ?
