    SPrecovery vs Clockwork(spell)

    I have seen Clockwork Recovery pop up a lot the last 2 weeks.

    those that have been successful using it have touted its ease of use and speed.

    I am very comfortable with SP.

    Is Clockwork the wave of the future? The New Style!?
    What advantages does Clockwork offer?
    If you want to start using Clockwork are there special instruction for those of us who are currently using SP?
    Any gotchas?

    I haven't even read about Clockwork. Not sure how you could make it easier than SPR. I'll stick around for someone to point to a how to or screenshots or something.

    I don't know about easier, but it def. has more features, with the exception of choosing which partitions you restore/backup.

    difficulty is probably the same as sprecovery. youdont have to rename you ROMs to update everytime though. it did a super clean install on my UD v8.

    You can format system, data, boot, and cache with in it. No need to use ADB to do so. Also if the ROM is made correctly there is no need to unzip the file to load it.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    does it overwrite nandroid backups if you use the same name or does it fudge up? SPR tends to lock on me if I try to do this.

    Having used SPRecovery many, many times, I've been leery of Clockwork Recovery. The first time I tried it, threw me off since the earlier version did not allow camera button to click on options (as does SPRecovery), but that apparently has been remedied in newer version(s). However, as time passes, it does seem that Koush has made a lot of improvements to Clockwork with added bells and whistles.

    Though it would appear that Clockwork Recovery could be the wave of the future, my hesitance with it revolves around the proverbial one man [person] show. The only name I hear associated with Clockwork is Koush. For those who have been around a bit, we saw what happened to SholesMod when "one man" parted ways.

    Assuming that the remaining SholesMod group, now DroidMod, will continue to support SPRecovery and/or its successor, then to me it has an edge because it would be supported by a team, rather than just one developer.

    That's just my two cents. And if my assumptions about Clockwork and/or SPRecovery are inaccurate, by all means correct me.
