Now when I ntry to booot in into recovery it gets stuck at the moto logo and won't go away without a battery pull. I really wanna root what doo I do?

    DM updater kinda sucks now. It has problems seeing if youre rooted and hasnt been updated recently at all. I suggest you switch to ROM Manager by Koush as it does everything that DMupdater does and more.

    I dont think ROM manager roots your phone though

    Oh no it doesn't, but its not too difficult to do it the real way, plus its good practice to actually know what you're doing lol
