    2.3.6 Rooted fine, but somehow when I went to install clockworkmod from rom manager it deleted current recovery but failed to install cwm. Been trying all day to push through fastboot (moto-fastboot-win32 commands). Downloaded recovery atrix5.img and it will send the command (moto-fastboot flash recovery recoveryatrix5.img) or whatever it is (going from memory, the link I was using isn't open now)... but it will not write it. Keeps saying failed.
    Have tried using the atrix fastboot tools w/ recovery (no luck with that either). Oh, and deleted install recovery sh file in system/etc and didn't work either.
    There is a rom on the device that I could flash via rom manager but I don't want to since there is no recovery on the device. Also forgot to mention, when I do try to get to recovery, I get a boot 2 error (it says something then 2... going from memory)
    Think that's all the relevant info. Need help getting a stock or cwm recovery to stick. Thanks.
