    I rooted using SuperOneClick, installed ROM Manager (the free one) and installed ClockWorkMod recovery. However, when I try to boot to CWM all I get is the stock recovery. I'm trying to install Peter Alfonso's stock Gingerbread ROM for the Droid.

    Any help is appreciated, THANKS.

    Keep flashing clockwork repeatedly with rom manager, some times it takes about 10 times till it sticks. Also go into the settings and check the option to erase recovery before flashing.
