Once you start using ROM Manager, the Droid X and Droid X 2nd Init are the proper choices. In CM7, that's really all you should use.

You can use Rom Manager on any rom that doesn't make any difference for which recovery you use.
The important designation is when using a second init Rom you must use a second init recovery. Always use the appropriate recovery for the Rom that you have installed.

I don't know that you can on a device with a locked bootloader like the X, D2, and D2G. I'm thinking that would require being able to overwrite the original recovery, which is what causes the device to flip out in the first place. That being why we have to use 2nd init and hijacked bootloaders.

i dont mean for this to be a shameless MIUI plug, but on MIUI I added an option the power button's reboot menu to reboot straight to CWM, no rom manager required. we also use a custom bootmenu that allows you to go CWM recovery on bootup.

however, both of these essentially hijack the stock recovery. it can't be completely replaced.

You can also boot to recovery from CM4DX power button menu. And that isn't a shameless MIUI plug! That's good solid information

My sister's DX is rooted froyo OTA. when powered off, the plugged into charge, subsequently boots into CWM 5020. Reboot from CWD is a normal b
boot. On boot I use a script to copy the 5020 zip from the ROM manager data directory to overwrite the recovery.zip file itself.

Oh that's not quite accurate. It is copied from /data/local to avoid sdcard mount delay

Hi I am having a hard time installing cyanogenmod on my brothers droid x. Thanks to this site I was able to successfully root and get into clockwork recovery. What a headache glad I have a thunderbolt. I can't flash though when I try it goes into clockwork wipes data and cache but fails the install. Any suggestions and any reason y cyanogenmod is not in Rom manager. I downloaded Rom directly from there site. If this Rom does not work any suggestions on a good stable Rom. Links will be appreciated and thank you for your time. I was able to do a back up good thing.

CWR is showing as 5.0.2.3 for me. Application shows it only, and says 5.0.2.0 is the newest. Shows 5.0.2.0 in recovery. I think I got the zip and installed it in CWR from somebody in rootzwiki. Liquid will boot into CWR from power button menu.
