You could try using ROM manager to download a fresh version of ClockWorkMod. I think the latest is 5.0.something. I'm still using 3.0.0.8. At the top of the list of options once you open ROM manager is "Recovery"...from there you can find the version you want.

ROM manager can also allow you to download older versions of CWM.

It's really the only thing I ever use ROM manager for.

Be careful when installing the latest Clockwork. There is a thread saying that 5.0.2.0 locks the bootloader. I have 5.0.1.0 and that is stable.

Im not the most knowledgeable of people on this forum and Im not doubting you but how could CWM lock the bootloader. Wouldn't that defeat the point of having a custom recovery?

If it won't go into recovery with 5.0.2.0, like mine, and keeps looping back to the bootloader, reflash the same version. Go to CWM, and even though latest and current might show the same version, select Flash again and do the same version.

This fixed mine since I was having the same problems. I can boot into recovery without problems on 5.0.2.0 and it hasn't changed my bootloader lock status.

Guys I am experiencing the same issue as Wanda. I made the mistake of upgrading clock work recovery in rom manager. Now my phone is stuck in a reboot loop to the splash screen. When I try to enter recovery I am unable to. I am confused how to get a older version that works since this seems to be the problem. Where can I get it and how do I install it without recovery and since I cant get back to rom manager?

Same issue, this is a big problem.

Can't get into recovery to restore with a backup. Also, can't get into rom manager as I'm getting the force close popup on all apps. Basically it just let's me to the hboot screen and then when I click recovery it takes me back to the same screen.

I did update clockwork mod to the newest update in rom manager a few days ago.

Ok, figured it out, to the help of no one other than trial and error. For those of you with similar problem, try this....

1) Uninstall update on Rom manager to previous version
2) Re-update Clockworkmod as it wasn't recognized in Rom Manager
3) Downgrade Clockworkmod to 3.0.0.8
4) Now I was able to reboot and flash my backup recovery

I hope this helped.
