I didn't have this bug so I wasn't able to test this fix, but Iceman0803 tested it for me.

Symptoms: After upgrading Rom Manager, or after a fresh Gingerbread SBF, you can't boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.

Reason: Rom Manager executes a script containing this code:

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/clockworkmod/download/download.clockworkmod.com/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip of=/preinstall/recovery/recovery.zip
It wants to convert and copy the new CWM Recovery package to your /preinstall/recovery/ folder. It always did this before, but the filesize of the new recovery has changed. This requires a certain amount of room... room you might not have given the new size, and given the fact that the Gingerbread SBF and All-in-One packages will put junk into your preinstall folder (if you're like Iceman0803, you're about .01mb shy of having enough room).

Solution:
1) Using root explorer, go to /preinstall/app/ and delete any apks you don't use (NFSShift is a great one to delete, its huge)

2) Reflash Clockworkmod Recovery in ROM Manager.

Now you can reboot to CWM Recovery through Rom Manager. Enjoy.

I thought that 5.0.20 was for Droid X with or without 2nd init. That is the cwr that flashes by rom manager whether you hit dx or dx 2nd init.

sorry i am a dummy and just rooted today and wanted to ask a question. I used the new one-click root and then installed the new version of RomManager in order to create a "nandroid?" backup before i screwed around with my phone. My phone also flashed 5.0.2.0 but whenever I would try to backup my phone it would just restart normally as if nothing had happened. Is this the source of the problem? If i purchase root explorer and delete the NFS apk should it work? I've been trying to read around and some people are saying I need to purchase Droid 2 Bootstrap so not too sure.... thanks and sorry again i'm nooby.

also i tried restarting my phone while holding the power button and home key to get to the triangle ! green man page but the search button didn't do anything. hahaha, man maybe root is too much for me!

hey pyunny, welcome to RootzWiki.

Your problem has nothing to do with this thread.
What you need to do is install Droid 2 Bootstrapper, then open the app and click on "Bootstrap Recovery".
Then you'll be able to boot into CWM using the bootstrapper app or rom manager app and then you can create a nandroid backup.
If you want the newest version of CWM, you can open Rom Manager and click on "Flash Clockworkmod Recovery"

for your other question, when you see the green man, press on both volume buttons. pressing the search key only works on the old froyo rom. for gingerbread you have to press on both volume buttons.

hope that clears it up for you. let us know if you have any more problems.

That's beyond my current skill level, unfortunately. I have been around since the DOS days and I've spent weeks worth of time playing with batch files but I haven't found a good guide to walk me through the basics to get me started with ADB.
