I don't get it...
I followed all the steps. My phone is rooted. Running 2.2.1 (I used Super One Click)
I get to the recovery screen after following all the steps where and can make backups and get the, E: "Bad Boot Message"
which is supposed to be fine.
I've gone through these steps 2 times now with out any problems other than the no backup file exists.
But as soon as I restart my phone and attempt to enter custom recovery either through the key combo or through terminal emulator on my phone it just loads the factory reset and wipes my phone.
Edit: I got it working!
With help from this post:

I've not testing since I still have the original Verizon recovery.
- Rename /system/recovery-from-boot.p to /system/recovery-from-boot.p.disabled (with RootExplorer)
IMHO this a bug in ROM Manager and you will see it fixed eventually. There is a new feature in the official "Google Froyo" that they don't handle.
All credit goes to patch.
