Try alternate flashing SPRecovery and Clockwork.

What recovery were you on?

If you pull battery, you're saying you cannot boot into recovery?

Flash Back to ESD56 .spf..... that should flash everything back stock, then just go through the process, and load a nandroid...... that should get you going..:beer2:

I don't use CW/ROM Manager because of the huge amount of tech issues. Once you get up and running I HIGHLY suggest you flash SPRecovery and uninstall ROM Manager.

It simply causes too many issues. The RS has been inundated with "help" threads from problems caused by ROM Manager.

I disagree, ROM Manager hasn't gave me, Nor anyone else i know any issues. Now, that being said... a whole forum thats full of "help" topics, i would relate more to ignorance of what actions are being performed..VS Rom Manager causing the issues....:D
Anyone That is starting to learn about ROM Manager is going to have problems... especially if they are just trying to mess around with their phone " ohhh look at me! I rooted my phone!...I should work for Motorola!":icon_rolleyes:

I agree with CDMATech.
You should just try to flash Clockwork again.
If that doesn't work, try flashing sprecovery then back to
clockwork.

I will have to respectfully disagree.......

Flashing a ROM using the app is pretty straightforward. Thats why people use it.

This is not uncommon. Posted just now

I don't agree with CDMA tech. I've been using Rom Manager off and on since it first came out and I still will not rely on it. I use it to reflash Sprecovery and to reboot into recovery and that's about it. Clockwork is the real problem. It will occasionally mess up and recovering from that can be problematic as you can then not restore with it either. SpRecovery is not as sophisticated as Clockwork, but it always works. If an install fails, the nandroid recoveries are still there and still work. SPR is dependable and Clockwork is not (IMHO :) ). I understand that if you've never had an issue with Clockwork that statement may sound "ignorant", but I, and many others, have learned not to depend on it by being burned by it.

agreed rom manager is a great tool if you already know the whats and whys if you just rooted and have no clue what your doing its a glue covered hand grenade just like when everyone rooted with the DMUpdater and had no idea how to flash recovery after breaking it

bingo.....this is not an IMHO this is a fact.

I'd rather people use a tried and true method than go with a known risk.

ROM Manager should have a warning label on it like cigarettes : )

Please let's not let this devolve into another recovery flamewar. I'm just trying to help the OP.

I would say it had more to do with onix than rom manager. I've had nothing but problems whenever I install any of onix/steam roms. As for RM being "too complicated" I just don't see it. For me RM is by far easier to use and much more user friendly than SPR. Maybe it depends on the phone. You know that some droids don't get along with certain roms and some have no problem with the same rom. But for my phone, both recoveries work, but I will continue to use RM.

I really dont think its to complicated as i still use it but had trouble with other 2.2 roms the new rm doesnt let u see whats going on, backup , or flashing, but it would nt do either so went back to 1.8.1.4, and no problems

CK is right. The Rescue Squad can confirm.... a lot of issues we see with members are so much ROM related, as they are ROM Manager related.
