    Hi,

    If xRecovery does not "kick in" either you have not installed xRecovery properly OR one of your xRecovery files is corrupted.

    Copy/Paste all of the three xRecovery-0.1 files into the /system/bin again using Root Explorer (remember to <click> Mount R/W) and you will be up and running.

    cheers :)
