    Can't boot (or flash) CM Recov

    i recently updated my Gummy Rom from 1.2.0 to x13thAngelx's 1.3.0 with HWA, shortly after I tried flashing the SSK mod for 1.2.0 and when into bootloop, here are the steps I used to recover, I have preformed these steps multiple times over the last few days.
    1. SBF to stock VRZ Gingerbread
    2. Root
    3. Bootstrap Recovery
    4. Boot Recovery, Format data/cache/Dalvik, Flash Gummy 1.3.0
    5. Flash Gapps 4.0.4 (i think)
    6. Boot phone

    Now at this point I can't get into CM Recov again, trying to do the button pressing powerup simply does a regular powerup, and when I try to flash CMRecov with ROM Manager, or Bootstrap recovery with Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrap, it will successfully complete, but the phone will freeze up when I try to poweroff or reboot, and trying to boot recovery will cause it to freeze on the Motorola logo indefinitely. I did make a Nandroid prior to flashing the SSK, however restoring this from GB will not restore it, but will flash barebones Gummy, without my data, and when I try to Flash gummy and then restore I get a list of errors saying backup not found etc.

    Any idea what my problem is?

    Immediately after you bootstrap recovery open ROM Manager and choose Update Latest Clockwork. When the device list appears choose Droid X 2nd init. Then reboot recovery from there.

    I have the latest ROM Manager, the new one, (1-2 days old) picks your CM version for you, I did flash the 2nd init., still nothing

    Are you just trying to restore your nandroid at this point or still trying to get 1.3 to work?

    1.3 is working, I'm trying to restore my nandroid, (which is 1.3) if possible I'd like to find a working SlimSoftKey mod for 1.3. However my number one goal right now is to boot clockworkmod recovery, which my phone refuses to do.

    this issue could be done by using bootstrap... bootstrap is a great app... you just can't use it on 2nd init roms like ics gummy.. it usually breaks the init process... i'm surprised it can actually boot up to be honest... but that could be your issue...

    and if you got adb setup on your computer... you can also try "adb reboot recovery" as that has gotten me into cwm a couple times when i was bootlooping...

    but i think your best bet to actually get it working... sbf and reflash...

    I'v sbf'ed and reflashed over 5 times in the past 4 days, (I basically haven't had a phone for the past week). It's the same problem every time. I do know that the 1st time I flashed the regular CM, not the 2nd init, however the last time I reflashed and downloaded ROM Manager koush had just released a new version, which automatically checked my phone and gave me only the 2nd init as an option, I'm a little fuzzy on the details - cuz in that sitting I sbf'ed and flashed like 3 times in a row, trying different things - but I believe that I could have tried bootstrapping too. So basically probably the only time I flashed the 2nd init, I made the mistake bootstrapping at the same time.

    ok, so forgive me but I would like to clarify some things.

    1. you can sbf/root and access CWM from stock?
    2. you install gummy 1.3 and then can't access CWM?
    3. all you are trying to attempt is to restore your nandroid?
