I messed up somehow trying to boot to CWM screen instead of normal boot
I updated to 2.2 using this thread's method without issue and have been using my device fine since then. I wanted to boot into CWM to see a backup thing talked about in a backup discussion. For some reason I couldn't get it to boot into CWM so I thought something was wrong with CWM. So I searched to find out rom manager is used to install CWM. I installed rom manager which indicated CWM wasn't present so I chose the option to install it (or whatever the proper term is). Once it was done and indicated it was present I chose the option to reboot into CWM. At this point all I got was my device hanging at the samesung screen with samsung URL. I let it stay that way for like 5 minutes or more. At this point I figured I messed u and needed to redo the flash process from the thread I linked so that everything was back to the way it was before I did the rom manager thing. However I'm still stuck at the samsung screen with the URL. What do I need to do to get my device working again?

Second to boot into CWM you need to shut down your device completely.
Third press and hold Volume down+camera+power.
After about 5 seconds or so you should boot into CWM from that Odin thread you linked it should be green text clockworkmod 188.8.131.52

Thanks much, I flashed again and all appears to be working now. I was able to get into CWM and the device boots correctly. I also removed rom manager. I guess I should have stopped and asked before I messed with it. Talk about panic attack I thought for sure I screwed up my device big time.
