    Hi,
    I'm on the leaked 2.2 and for some reason I can't seem to get bootstrap recovery to work. It's installed on my phone and when I press Bootstrap Recovery it says sucess but when I try to reboot into recovery nothing happens (my goal is to eventually install the ApeX rom) any suggestions?

    how are you trying to boot into recovery? you should be able to just hit the reboot from within bootstrapper.

    Did you upgrade to 2.2 recently? If so, you may have lost root access. I'm not sure why, but that's what happened to me a couple of days ago when I tried to flash RubiX. Same exact symptoms as you, "Success" was shown, but would not reboot.

    See if the wifi router application will run. If it can't, you most likely lost root.

    Sounds like you lost root, use the D2 method, and try again.
