    It seems as though several people have had this problem of getting into recovery. I believe another way you can get to recovery is by holding the call/send button and the power/end button at the same time. It will give you two options fastboot or recovery, select recovery.

    My Brain Hurts: ROM Manager and Clockwork Recovery Image

    this is a link to the latest clockwork mod recovery image. you have to scroll down through the list to the droid eris. it would have to be renamed "recovery" if someone wanted to try it who doesn't ahve a working trackball.

    My problem is that when I select recovery it sends me to the three dancing droids bootup image and then it just locks up. I had it sit for about 20 min and it still hadn't unfroze, so I really don't know what to do from there.

    I have actually tried this several times as well. I have powered down my phone and rebooted holding VOLUME UP / END simultaneously...however I enter the normal phone startup. If I hold VOLUME DOWN / END then I enter the stock recovery.

    Try starting over including redownloading the gscript.zip file. Delete the current directories for the gscript on your sdcards first. The only thing I can think of is that your downloaded files are corrupt.

    I tried this already. I redownloaded it, and this time extracted everything from my phone, and ran them again. It did not produce any results.

    I tried this is as well. The first time I downloaded to computer - then moved the files to the phone. The second time I downloaded straight to phone. Both times I received the same result - either normal phone startup(volume up / end) OR stock bootloader(volume down/end)

    OK, lets try this. Go into your sdcard/gscript/tools folder and delete flash_image and recovery.img. Then go here and download the hack-v4. Unzip the hack-v4 same as you did the gscript.zip. Copy and paste the flash_image and recovery.img from hack-v4 to gscript/tools and start over.

    So glad to here that it worked. I figured it had to be one of those two files corrupted to cause your problems.

    Don't want to get your hopes up again, but I think Papadroid just had him basically re-download and install the files from a different source (wag3slav3's thread, I think) to make sure they were good, clean, whole files. Papadroid, can you confirm?

    Did you follow / understand the discussion about using the Clockworkmod custom recovery above? If so, you might be able to use it in place of the recovery.img (Amon_RA's that is, that is used by this thread). Since it apparently doesn't need a trackball, it might work for you. I have no first-hand experience with it though, so I can't really encourage you in that direction if you know what I mean (I've read the same cautions about it posted previously).

    I will definitely give this a try when I get home - I see that it has already worked for Kaseladen. Thanks Papadroid.

    Yes all I had them do was replace two files in the process because they were not able to load recovery at all which is not kamots problem. Kamots what you can do is download the clockwork recovery from the below link that varkie provided. Place the recovery image into your sdcard/gscript/tools folder. Delete your old recovery.img and rename the new Clockwork image to recovery.img Then start the process again and it will give you the clockwork recovery.

    The file you downloaded should be recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.1-desirec.img you're going to rename it to recovery.img Just make sure to delete the old recovery.img first.

    Finally got somewhere!

    After getting some time to look at it again, I went and tried to get into the bootloader, but this time went through the original one, clicked on system recovery, and it brought me to the screen pictured at figure 32. Able to install KaosFroyov24 finally. Ill see how I like it.

    Took forever to boot up, like the how to states, and was lagy at first. Ill see how it is in a bit.

    RyRy

    P.S. Im already missing the SenseUI.....any way I can turn it back on? or am I really better off without it?

    alright. i know its probably semantics, but i am getting nervous. do you use the rom or manually. looking for what you would do since you know a ton more

    and all this time i have been wrong my screen looks like 32, not 31. sorry

    ok so i dowloaded the rom and i want to flash clockwork right? will this just put is on my sd card and I can move it manually from there to gscripts ?

    I'm not sure what you're asking.:thinking: BTW, there is no reason to be nervous but I understand.

    Oh you mean rooting it with the adb? It is quicker IMO, if you have adb setup already.
