You need s-off to use 4ext. So technically it didn't flash the recovery in the first place.

I think your problem is S-ON. I had exactly the same issue myself when first trying to shift to CWM Touch. You need to be S-Off for these things to stick.

I used this method. http://revolutionary.io/

Check the various Desire S-OFF threads for more detail.

A S-On device will not be able to flash a recovery (unless you use unrevoked as a roundabout way to flash). They can only 'fake flash' recovery. Those would be lost after a reboot. Go S-Off to flash recovery.
