    I saw the google doc on the bootstrap...I just wanted to make sure that I didn't mess things up by doing what I did in that sequence and for selecting Droid 2 as the device instead of DX as you state in that google doc. thanks

    for D2, D2G, R2D2, and DX, you need to install D2 bootstrap then,
    to select DX 2nd init recovery (in Rom Manager), so that its compatible with 2nd init roms

    Then backup stock ROM via CWM?
    If that is correct, would it be advisable to backup EFS file (is there an app to do this?) as well as apps on phone (can use Titanium Backup Pro)..correct? thanks

    I recommend making a nandroid backup after rooting, and before any major changes
    I have never used Encrypting File System, so not sure
    titanium backup pro is a very usefully app, I use it every time I install a new rom

    "Reboot into Recovery" in CWM (Rom Mgr) or "backup current ROM"?

    ok you asking about /efs folder?
    This is a very sensitive system folder that contains Phone-specific information such as the IMEI (encrypted in the nv_data.bin), wireless devices MAC addresses, product code (also in the nv_data.bin), and much more. Often users trying to change product codes or trying to unlock the mobile will end up corrupting data in this location.
    I think that it is untouchable, because of the locked bootloader, I have never had a problem, and have flashed roms/sbfs a hundred times on D2, D2G, DX2 and D3

    You hadn't gave info on EFS folder for backing it up, but you directed to make a backup (nandroid). So reading your google doc it says "tap on Reboot Recovery" so I just wanted to be crystal clear on what you meant and what I see in Rom Mgr (CWM). thanks

    I have never had much use for rom manger, I just use bootstrap to reboot to cwm

    edit; rom manager is not cwm recovery, it is an interface to cwm

    oh yeah...recalling the other option on the bootstrap app...to recover..
    good to know about Rom mgr and cwm. So did I gaff by using Rom Mgr to flash cwm recovery?
