Installed ClockworkMod via ROM Manager, selected reboot into recovery via manager and the phone only boots into "Android System Recovery" now. OK button doesn't work to select "reboot now", though long depress does what it should.

I just flashed the EG30 tar file (see comments) successfully, but it booted back into "Android system recovery" again and the ok button will not select on "reboot system now" but long long depress will reboot it... back into recovery though. Any ideas on how I can get the phone to start up properly?

Flashing stock is the same process as flashing custom via Odin, you just need a stock ROM. –  Matthew Read Jan 8 '12 at 20:56
    
I can appreciate the duplicate thing, but the questions cited aren't really helpful. I was hoping to find an article that lays it out. Been Googling and not much luck. Was just hoping for an A-Z laying out the files needed, selections to check in Odin, etc. I guess I'll keep searching. –  rickwnet Jan 8 '12 at 21:04
    
All you need is the .tar file for the ROM, and the XDA post I link to in my answer to the first dupe has everything you need to do in Odin. I've also wrote out instructions for Odin myself a few times, e.g. here. –  Matthew Read Jan 8 '12 at 21:07
    
Oh, my bad. The first one does lay it out, blind... thanks. I just applied the EG30 tar file successfully, but it booted back into "Android system recovery" again and the ok button will not select on "reboot system now" but long long depress will reboot it... back into recovery though. Any ideas? Apologies if I 'm posting this comment to the wrong question. Thanks. –  rickwnet Jan 8 '12 at 21:34
    
Ah, that's different now. I updated the question with that and re-opened. –  Matthew Read Jan 8 '12 at 22:28

My first instinct is to say the partitions are messed up. I would try using the "shipped ROM" from here and re-partitioning via Odin. I found the .pit file here.

Perfect. Applied "SPH-D710.EG30_CL435734-OneClick.exe" linked to your "shipped ROM" URL and all is well. Was able to apply a Sprint update successfully w/o booting in the stock recovery over and over for the first time too. Thanks! –  rickwnet Jan 9 '12 at 14:21
    
@rickwnet That's great, glad it worked out so well. –  Matthew Read Jan 9 '12 at 16:27
