View Full Version : Unable to Get Into Clockwork Recovery

Hi i'm new to this forum and i've been having some problems with rebooting into recovery on Rom Manager. When i click okay to reboot it doesn't do anything. I was wondering if someone could help me with this.

What rom are you on at the moment?

I'm just on stock gingerbread I rooted yesterday.

You will need to run one of the Bootstrap apps first. DROID X or DROID 2 Bootstrap apps will work. Then you can use ROM Manager.

Ok. I've found the easiest way to flash is with Droid 2 bootstrap. I haven't had any luck with rom manager myself but I know other people use it.

I downloaded the droid 2 bootstrap and hit bootstrap recovery, and that says success. Then I try to hit reboot recovery on that and that doesn't work either.

Did you press ok when it says success?

Do other rooted apps work? Download root checker from the market and use that to see if you're actually rooted. Also, make sure bootstrap is listed in the superuser app.

The root checker says i'm not rooted lol and I even tried to do the process to root again, and it didn't work.

You can try booting into stock recovery and wiping cache then try rerooting.

Here are the instructions

Instructions for rooting with D3 1-click
1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed
2. Download and unzip ‘Droid 3 easy root script v7
3. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging (check box)
4. Plug phone into computer and select “Charge Only” mode
5. Navigate to ‘Droid 3 easy root’ folder and run ‘Click to root your Droid 3.bat’
6. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

With this additional info from Rootzwiki if you have problems on the X

in the meantime, open the folder you extracted these files to.
(i'm assuming you are in windows 7 here)
hold Shift+right click a blank spot, select "open a command prompt here"
type: adb shell
when you hit enter, the next line should end with a #
if it's $, run the oneclick again, then start this over

once you have the # prompt, type
mount -oremount,rw /dev/block/system /system
rm /system/bin/su
rm /system/xbin/su
hitting enter after each line.
don't worry if it says it can't find the file... the point here is to get rid of it anyway

The second half is if you have trouble rooting.
