    I want to try out 2.2 but when I try to boot into recovery mode (or what it is called) using home + start i get an image where i see a device and a red triangle with a "!" in it.
    Running original 2.1 now, any ideas whats wrong?

    You're booting into recovery all right, it just sounds like you haven't got a custom recovery menu yet. They have to be flashed just like a custom ROM would.

    Download ROM Manager from the market, it can install a recovery menu for you. It's not the best one (amon ra is the best), but it's very easy to install on the official 2.1 firmware.

    Which recovery you installed via the ROM manager? (Clockworkmod or Amon Ra?)

    The market has trouble. You need to cancel and download and cancel and etc .. Some say after 20 times it works.... Me usually 3 or 4 attempts.

    Where you see the triangle?
