    Every time I attempted to enter Recovery Mode I get the red triangle with " ! " and android lying on the ground. I've tried to get to recovery via rom manager, also power + volume up/down no luck. Anyone now a fix... Thanks in advance.

    Go into rom manager and make sure cmr is installed.

    I have 5.5.0.4 installed. Is that the most recent? I have no data cause of the outage unable to see if there are any updates.

    Can u hook to wifi? Have u tried just rebooting the phone? Once u get data again, click on it to install it again. Won't hurt nothing. Then from rom manager click on reboot to recovery.

    Before I flashed a different ROM I had to flash CMR in ROM Manager every time before rebooting into recovery otherwise I ended up with the same image.

    I have the same issue with mine, just updates Busybox and has a log that it should now work with Nexus on 12/28 but it's the same version I already had. I can get to recovery after the red triangle on mine, pressing the lock or lock/volume does it. I still need a lot to learn about installing ROMs, my Tbolts recovery was simple with more options like installing zip options?! My GN is already unlocked and rooted so more reading is needed.

    I was able to get into recovery too a few times, but it still seems to be a hit and miss for me.

    Rename /system/boot-from-recovery.p to boot-from-recovery.p.bak. that's overwriting CWM.

    That's what I'm reading right now, thanks! As long as I go into recovery right after flashing I have no issue. Need a lot to learn coming from rooted Tbolt.

    Edit: Looks like I need to pay for Root Explorer?!

    figured that out but what the other poster said was look for "boot-from-recovery.p" I'm only finding "recovery-from-boot.p" what one is it that i'm supposed to be renaming?

    EDIT: I renamed "recovery-from-boot.p to recovery-from-boot.p.bak and it didnt fix the problem.

    You will still have to delete/rename the recovery file after installing cwm. Once the recovery file is gone you will.have to flash cwm again from rom manager.

    I had the same issue as above, renaming recovery-from-boot.p fixed the issue, but remember you will need to flash the ROM again in order to fix the problem after renaming the file.

    If you're running the stock rom every time you reboot it will remove the CWR, this is built into the android OS. So until you swap out that ROM to something other than stock you'll have to reflash CWR every time you reboot.

    Ok thank you for clearing that up. I was running the Stock ROM. I was just worried that if I did flash a diff ROM that this would cause problems somewhere along the way.

    No problem man, it's just a security thing with android. If you fup your phone it'll reflash the stock recovery so you can still fix things. But with CWR installed you don't have that problem.

    Just want to reiterate that the suggestion to delete (or rename) /system/boot-from-recovery.p would also work and enable you to keep your stock image yet get into CWM recovery.

    If you don't want to spend the $4 for File Explorer, you can do what I did.

    Download the following two apps:
    Mount /system (rw/ro)
    ASTRO File Manager

    Start Mount /system (rw/ro) to put mount /system as rw
    Navigate to /system folder via ASTRO and delte boot-from-recovery.p
    Then go back into the first app to unmount /system

    Done. OK to uninstall both apps if you don't need them. Also, the above file serves NO purpose except to block you from accessing a custom recovery, so don't even bother renaming, just delete and be done with it.
