    I rooted my phone using unrevoked. FLashed to VirusROM Kingdom 1.3, which I am loving, great ROM. But i was trying to get back into recovery mode and its not working. What am I doing wrong? I shut the phone down. Hold down Volume down and press power, but the phone just boots normally into the rom. Help!

    Pull out your battery, wait 5-10 seconds, put battery back in, and try the volume up + power button again. See if that works.

    Also, under settings > power, make sure 'fastboot' is unchecked. I'm not sure if that option is in this ROM or not, but check and make sure.

    I am not certain but some of the new roms have a fastboot option under settings>applications. Make sure it is not checked and try it again. Other than that, most roms have the option to boot to recovery if you hit the power button then select restart and recovery.

    This was the issue, thanks a bunch. Does this fastboot option significantly increase the boot speed? Should I recheck it when I am done in recovery?

    It may help to some degree, but I'd leave it unchecked if I were you. Oh...and you're welcome! ;)
