in the booted OS,you can:
adb reboot to reboot the phone
adb reboot bootloader to boot to fastboot
adb reboot recovery to boot to to recovery

in fastboot you can:
fastboot reboot-bootloader to make the bootloader reboot
fastboot getvar all to list some phone info
fastboot oem writecid VZW__001 to change your cid
fastboot reboot to boot back to the OS

last and not least,some troubleshooting steps:
Ok, moving along! I think the adb thing is working. All the commands led to the appropriate returns (device number, etc.) FYI the white window said "fastboot usb" instead of "fastboot devices". As in my other post to Hadron, it looks like I'm rooted with superSU. I'll change the cid next. What is that for? The phone seems to work fine. Hadron's comment that "the recovery command being just black doesn't sound right" concerns me some. After that, I'll try to get the CW touch flashed.
