    I'm not sure if this is normal or not but when I load ROM Manager it says I have 2.5.0.7 but when I try to do something like flash a new rom from rom manager it boots to recovery then immediately shows error ! sign and boots normally. When I use Manually boot into recovery it shows Clockworkmod 2.5.0.6. Another possible issue is that Clockworkmod recovery never replaced my stock recovery. (not sure if thats normal either) Thanks for any ideas.

    I get those same numbers too. I believe its that way on everybodys. At least that's I've been reading here and there. I can never get rom manager to work right either, I just do manual backups and restores. I just use rom manager to change the names of my backups.

    Clockwork recovery will never replace the stock recovery. That's not how the new Motorola phones with locked bootloaders operate.

    We hijack the bootup process to load the pseudo recovery environment before the majority of the OS starts, and that's how we're capable of writing to /system and such like a real recovery could do.

    The Bootstrapper app is hard coded with 2.5.0.6 in it, so whenever you reboot recovery from that, that's what'll load.

    If you do it from ROM manager, it loads the update to 2.5.0.7 (or whatever latest version) every time before starting up the recovery environment (that's what that little envelope looking thing is doing).
