My only problem (so far) is this. When I install Rom Manager, I am able to successfully flash my ROM to ClockworkMod 126.96.36.199. However, when I select "Reboot into Recovery" in Rom Manager, or try to "Backup Current ROM", the screen displays the droid with a progress bar temorarily (without any other writing nor progress in the bar), then hard resets itself. It apprears that the phone factory resets itself, and I lose all my apps/data. The weird thing (maybe I don't fully understand rooting) is that the phone remains rooted, remains in Gingerbread (as opposed to 2.2 which it initially came in) and SuperUser is still installed, but that's it.
I reinstall Clockwork Mod and the same thing happens when I flash the ROM and attempt to backup or reboot into recovery.
I've tried a few times now.
Also, how do I attempt to enter clockwork mod's recovery when my phone is off? I'm scared I'd do another hard reset (Which I think happened before)
it is hard reseting itself because you didnt flash cwm recovery properly ...follow the method in below link and flash it ..it will take just a minute and it works for sure...
Flash recovery from lgmdp - xda-developers
Recovery Key mapping:
Up & down : vol-up and vol-down
Select : Menu
Backup : Back
