AN EASIER WAY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN DISCOVERED BY DROIDXCHAT. GO HERE http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?4905

just wanted to post this tutorial because razor showed me a way to install it without having to sbf and wipe data.Not sure where this tutorial originated but if i need to credit someone please let me know. Razor and I saw Antob125 post this in Rev's CM4DX. so here goes.

THIS IS FOR PEOPLE THAT FLASHED THE NEWEST CWM 5.0.2.0 FROM MANAGER AND CANT BOOT INTO CWM RECOVERY ANYMORE
  1. Download CWR 5.0.1.0 HERE Its named 5.0.2.0 but its actually a renamed version of 5.0.1.0
  2. Use root explorer or any file explorer to move recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip from clockworkmod\download\download.clockworkmod.com\recoveries\ on your sdcard to the root of your sdcard.
  3. Then use Root Explorer or any file explorer again to move the downloaded/renamed 5.0.1.0.zip(recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip) to clockworkmod\download\download.clockworkmod.com\recoveries
  4. Then go into rom manager and hit flash clockwork recovery and pick the DroidX(2nd Init) option. This will not redownload the file, but instead will use the renamed clockwork file we placed in the clockwork folder which is actually 5.0.1.0.
  5. Once its flashed reboot recovery from rom manager. You should now see CWR 5.0.1.0 on the top of clockwork.
  6. From clockwork 5.0.1.0. Hit Install zip from sdcard>>>choose zip from sdcard>> and then choose the ACTUAL recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip that you moved from the clockwork folder to the root of your sdcard.
  7. After flashing that you should automatically be in CWR 5.0.2.0 and should say it at the top of your screen.

    From there do what you need to do. Peace out rootz hope this helps

latest version of rom manager always downloads a fresh copy...any way around this?
rom manager does not do that.
it will check the recoveries folder first.
if the newest is there, then it will use it.

every time i select flash recovery it redownloads

do you have version 4.4.0.7? it just came out a few hours ago.
that function must have been left out on 4.4.0.6, cuz it's been working for several people over the past few days.

yeah i was on .7 but since rom manager is a system app on cm4dxgb i was able to go into manage applications and uninstall updates which took me back to an older version.

now i have another problem though. i was able to flash 5.0.1.0 but when i go to install the 5.0.2.0 zip it hangs. i have waited about 10min and nothing. if i pull the battery it boots as normal, i reboot into recovery still says 5.0.1.0.

any ideas?

thanks

Hmmm...not sure what could be causing that...other than a bad download

Hey sorry I guess I don't know the backstory to this. Why does this process even need to be done? I flashed from the older droid x 2nd-init to 5.0.1.0 then a few days later to 5.0.2.0 all with rom manager, no problems. What problem are other people having?

A lot of people are flashing the new cwm recovery and no longer being able to boot into cwm recovery. This is a fix for them

Apparently this doesn't work with ROM Manager 4.4.0.7. As others have said 5.0.2.0 gets re downloaded every time. I even tried to get clever and put my DX into airplane mode first but still no joy. I just get an error saying something along the lines of the update failing because ROM Manager cannot connect to the server.

to the guys having problems, i propose an experiment....

in root explorer, go to /preinstall/recovery/ and put this inside: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11695745/recovery.zip

go to the root of your sdcard and put this inside: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11695745/cwm.sh

now go to terminal emulator, type sh /sdcard/cwm.sh

if it works let me know and ill upload a little fix package for you guys so that rom manager will work.

So far no go. Not enough space in /preinstall/recovery/ for recovery.zip. Is it safe to delete any files from that folder? It's just BARELY too big. Folder has 1.38MB free and recovery.zip is 1.39MB

you should already have a recovery.zip in there. if not, that's your problem right there. rommanager calls

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/clockworkmod/download/download.clockworkmod.com/recoveryies/recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip of=/preinstall/recovery/recovery.zip
that right there says you need a /preinstall/recovery/recovery.zip file to convert and copy to! if its not there, its because rom manager hasn't been able to create the file, probably because of this memory issue.

so if you have a recovery.zip already in there, delete it and replace it with mine. if it's not there... post back here to comfirm.

EDIT: go into /preinstall/app/ and delete nfsshift, you'll have room then for sure. if my suspicions are correct, rom manager might even work after that without you having to do anything lol... as it will now have room to convert and copy the 5.0.2.0 into /preinstall/recovery/, allowing it to load that recovery
