Is using RM the only way to reboot into CWR?

theres a way to get it to install permanatly but im not having any luck getting it to actually work. so the easiest way i have found is through Rom Manager.

darkcyber,

See the bottom part of this post in this new root-related guide:

edit: I'll just paste it here for you

Q: how to enter into recovery (custom or stock)?

A: four ways (so far):


  1. put your phone in fastboot / bootloader mode (see above) and use the volume up/down keys to toggle the mode (displayed at the top of the screen) to "Recovery" and select that mode by pressing the power button

  2. use the (free) Market app Quick Boot (Reboot) and select "Recovery"

  3. via the ROM Manager app's "Reboot into Recovery" option on the main menu

  4. via an adb reboot recovery command (only when you are in adb mode)

Cheers!

I vote for #4 followed closely by #1 if you're not by a computer. Thanks Scary.

You are most welcome! :)

Many roms also include the recovery reboot option natively I will use that more than any other option if it is available otherwise I would use option 1 in SA's post

+1 Yeahha!

I'll update the thread with that nice nugget of information, thanks! :)

My personal favorite and one of the first apps I always install after rooting is Quickboot :). Its such a simple, clean app.

Cheers!

Thanks for the information!

So, I guess, right now, we don't have a Nexus Bootstrapper then :) (like Droid X & 2 Bootstrappers.)

No and we won't ever have a nexus bootstrapper ;) they need to be used on those moto devices thanks the the efforts moto took to lock down their devices. The nexus will allow you to get to recovery easily and change it so a bootstrapper is not needed.

I would guess that using Quickboot or a native rom reboot recovery feature is similar to using a bootstrapper but it is booting to the actual recovery and you can still get there if you can not access android so you don't need to worry about having to use something like an SBF to get a working system again if something goes wrong.
