Not sure if this helps you or not, since I'm not by any means an expert...
On mine, I had to purchase and install the Droid X Bootstrap, then I was able to boot into recovery and I installed Darkslide. Right after that when the phone was all set up again, I realized that I had NONE of my original apps. I had to reinstall all of them, including the Droid X Bootstrap app. When I looked on Market it showed that I had paid for the boostrap app, and gave the option to install again. After I reinstalled Bootstrap I was able to run Bootstrap Recovery and then Reboot Recovery. It's only after that, that I'm able to run updates like the new keyboard, market etc.
Did you run bootstrap recovery and when it says "success" you hit ok? Then reboot recovery. Or does out go into Clockwork menu screen and just reboot you? Never seen that.
Because if you wiped system/data to install the ROM you will have to let Bootstrap recovery run again. By hitting top button, letting it say "success" and then hitting "ok." Then you run Bootstrap again by hitting "reboot recovery."
