    SPRecovery and Clockwork Recovery

    Maybe a noob question but I could find my answers in the search. Currently have Bugless Beast v.9 and I am thinking of trying CyanogenMod. I currently use SPRecovery to backup with Nandroid. If I install Clockword Recovery and ROM Manager to try CyanogenMod, will SPRecovery still work so I can Nandroid back to my Bugless backup if I want to? Thank you!

    Yes. Rom Manager gives u the option to switch back n forth between the 2 recovery systems. The only thing is Rom Manager uses Clockwork as the recovery system when installing ROMs with Rom Manager. If u wanna use SP, u choose 'Flash Alternate Recovery' to use SP again. U can then choose 'Boot Into Recovery' to use SP.

    Jroc, I purchased Rom Manager last Friday and installed Cyanogen 5.0.6.1 It was very easy. I noticed that SPR is available under alternative. I've not opened that particular tab.

    Yesterday, I was playing around and tried to boot into recovery by pressing the X key and power. Now that I have Rom manager installed things are very different.


    Have you used the SPRecovery option in Rom Manager? If so, does it still work like it did before installing Rom Manager? I would appreciate your thoughts on how to open and use SPRecovery.

    If you let RM flash SPrecovery for you it is just like before you flashed CWrecovery. You will be able to use your old backups made with SP. The switch back and forth between SP and CW images is painless with the RM app.

    Edit: Just to make sure you know, RM will not work when you flash back to SPrecovery. All the boxes pertaining to ROMs in the app will grey out until you reflash CW.

    Thanks kaboyd! I was hoping that was the case.

    I imagine that c backup made with ClockWork will not work with SPRecover and backups made with SPRecovery will not work with ClockWork. Is that correct?

    Yep. The backups are different between the two images. They have to be handled separately from each other.
