Hello, I have a Droid 2 Global, with OTA .629, but already rooted and everything, but i have constant reboots since i had the phone (with .330, .607, .608 and .629) maybe its a defective phone, i dont know really, but the problem i have actually it is:

I installed the newest clockwork recovery using Rom Manager, but the recovery it doesnt do anything, it says it wipe data/cache, and very quickly, but it doesnt, it gives me error formating /system, etc...

It says that installed sucessfully Cyanogenmod 7.2 (latest nightly) but, it freezes at M logo... what should i do?

This is hardly discussed or documented anywhere, but if you're using CWM, you have to flash Droid X 2nd Init and NOT Droid 2 Global as your recovery.

that's because Rom Manager isn't recommended
I used Droid 2 bootstrap, with 2.4.33 and 4.5.608 and it worked fine

your cwm was likely corrupt, selecting Droid x just installed a complete cwm

edit: if you are using rom manager you have to use Droid X 2nd Init, or just use Droid 2 bootstrap

You aren't quite right.

The correct way is installing Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery and using that to hijack. This will give you CWM 2.0.0.x. Once done, install the Droid X (2nd init) CWM via ROM Manager, and you'll end up with a fully functional CWM 5.0.0.x.

(Custom ROMs like CM7, CM9, and MIUI come with 5.0.0.x preinstalled, and restoring a backup made with 5.0.0.x is impossible if running 2.0.0.x.)

ok, i dont really get it...

using Droid X 2nd-init, it wipes and everything, and flashes CM9-D2G-04162012 and update-cm-7-20120420-NIGHTLY-droid2we-signed, coming from stock .629 firmware, and it freezes at M logo after rebooting, then is necessary sbf'ing again .608, and unbrick it againg, and is a loooong process....

again there are no roms built for .629, so you need to search for ones that are reported to work, and how they got them to work

In general, according to people who use CM9 on top of .629, any .608 ROM works on .629. There are no differences.
