Hi I got a bit greedy and installed
http://www.modaco.co...5-testing-1710/

Obviously its not for my model phone (my phones a crescent) and Clockwork recovery no longer boots. I get the Android logo and the frount LED stays on red. (ParanoidAndroid loads fine)

I've tried re-installing via the clockwork app but get the same problem

I was going to try getting clockwork back by doing this
but I cant find that option under Paranoid Android

I've also tried this
clockinstall.bat finds the phone but AGAIN I get the same problem on reboot

It seems it like it cant boot anything other than the os
.........Dunno.......Out of ideas

Why would you install something that's clearly not for your phone?

No matter.

You're gonna have to start from scratch again and if you've not backed up your rom then you're gonna lose that too. Just follow the instructions from one of the topics on this forum and install clockwork from scratch

He's not going to lose his ROM at all.

A fastboot erase and flash with the correct image should be enough.

have you tried flashing it from terminal emulator. just put the recovery img on the sdcard, open the terminal type su.
you'll get #
type. flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
