    No its not necessary. From off position press power and volume up (or down not sure) simultaneously.

    Do you have a custom recovery installed? Olympus is just the Atrix codename.

    If you don't know, don't try and use it until you've done your homework... CWM is a custom recovery that requires an unlocked bootloader, and it's for installing custom roms. It's not something you should play with if you don't know what you're doing, you'll end up permanently damaging your device if you do..

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!
