    Okay, so here's what I'd do.

    1. You have no backups, so I guess there's nothing you can do there.
    2. I'd probably try to install the Amon Ra recovery. It's a pc36img.zip file (name that exactly )
    This file will put amon ra (which is said to be more stable) on your phone as it's recovery. From there you could flash a new rom. I guess it sucks that you'll have no stock 2.2 backup but, whatever.
    From that rom, make sure your 4g keys are still there (check the rooting for dummies guide), and that everything else is also working. Then make a new backup.

    From there should be good.

    I thin the problem would likely be solved by re-flashing, but it wouldn't hurt to put on amon ra recovery.

    Hope that helps.
    (this might get better results in the rooting section... just a though)

    If you just want to put a rom on, the best way is without using rom manager, that program is said to be quite buggy, i've never used it so I cannot fairly judge it.

    Check the rooting for dummies on the root page for info on how to manually flash a rom.

    there's lots of good stuff there, check it out.

    ok so with gingerbread, there is a fastboot option. you need to go to settings/applications and uncheck the fastboot box. on some roms in there is a power option in the phone settings that the fastboot option is found.

    it is good that you wanted to go to recovery. just do not use rom manager. it tends to be very buggy.

    +1 to amon ra that 9to5 mentioned. a much better recovery then clockwork mod that you have.
