Default Trouble booting into recovery

Whenever I go to boot into recovery, whether it be through adb or holding down the vol down and power buttons when the phone is off, I get to a screen with a little picture of the device and a red triangle with an exclamation point inside of it. After about 3 minutes (emphasis on about, I get distracted...) it reboots.

This happened before I s-off'd and installed CWM. Even now, its still happening. I'm not sure if CWM even installed as I can't boot into recovery (hence this thread). Anybody else having this problem?


EDIT: Okay so idk if this is how it was before (because, as i said earlier, I get distracted easily... great.) but when i try to flash cwm through adb, it says < waiting on device > and gets stuck there.
Maybe thats the problem... Im not sure. anybody got ideas?

That sounds like you have the stock recovery, and not CWM. You may want to re-run the S-OFF and see if it sticks. Some people had stated that it took a few tries to get it to stick.

Another update: Im not sure if my phone is supposed to be in the bootloader when Im trying to flash cwm. But when it is and I try to flash the file, it says "Error: Cannot open cwm..."
