That was what I was doing but had no luck. Let me try one more time just to make sure

Edit: ok so I figured out if you use Droid 2 boot strapper it reverts it and then you have to Reflash the new version. Just an fyi. Thanks Brent

Mostly, I just can't use Droid 2 boot strapper to get into recovery. I have to go through room manager. I'm not sure why that's the case.

Which ROM are you on? If you're on a 2nd init ROM (CM7, MIUI, Liquid, OMGB), then you should not be using any bootstrapper app.

I had the exact same issue today. However, to fix it I flashed the 2int X version (Even though I am running a rooted stock .602 gb build). Worked perfect, I can now also boot into recovery straight out of ROM manager.

This does not work for me, at all.

Running Shuji 2.1.

The Droid 2 Bootstrapper will get me in to the old Recovery, but haven't been able to get anywhere using Rom Manager.

^^ +1. I to had the same issue today. I'm on shuji 2.1. Flashed the new recovery from rom manager and tried to boot into recovery. Just rebooted my phone really. I tried both Droidx and 2nd-init. Only thing that worked was Droid 2 bootstrapper but it took me to orange text version. Are we onto something here?

What's gained from using the new recovery opposed to use the old one?
faster backups and restores. usb mass storage mode now works. option to format or mount/unmount preinstall partition. backups are now in tar format, instead of img. all i could think of off top of my head
