    This only helps those with root already. Previously, you had to be connected to a computer and run a batch file to get into a custom recovery, but this tricks the phone into flashing an update.zip that is actually a recovery image. Just follow the tutorial in my sig to root and update, then you can download ROM Manager from the Market.

    I ran the Rom Manager and installed the Clockwork Recovery Rom.

    I then turned the phone off....Went into Recovery...Held Volume up and Power and I get the message

    "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command"

    i have to then choose to apply the update.zip

    it then loads the recovery rom (Flash, Wipe, Wipe Data)


    this is the only way im able to get into it for some reason.

    now....

    if i go into rom manager and choose reboot into recovery nothing happens. If i choose reboot into recovery and reboot the phone and go into recovery, i just get the red exclamation point and nothing happens.

    Actually, ROM Manager has been updated to support NAND unlock, and it flashes the latest ClockworkMod straight to your recovery partition. By far the easiest way to keep an up-to-date recovery image.
