    Can't make Nandroid Backup via Clockwork 2.5.0.1

    Hi all,

    I've been running a rooted phone since before the official 2.1 with little issues that weren't my own fault. I'm running the most up to date Clockwork Recovery via ROM Manager (2.5.0.1 I believe) and if I try to backup my ROM via ROM Manager, it fails. First, it would get stuck at the Moto logo, now after reflashing recovery, it starts backing up boot, but almost immediately goes back into the main menu. No backup shows up in recovery. The only change I can think of is that I manually deleted a lot of old backups on the SD card.

    I'll be trying another Clockwork reflash...but anyone hear of this specific problem, with a fix? Thanks!

    I am having the same problem on my phone. I can't create a back up and I can't load a new rom.
    When I open rom manager after it fails to back-up it gives me a message saying "is recovery broken". Then there are 5 tips to fix rom manager but none of them have worked for me.

    Two suggestions.

    Use an older version of CW or flash the alternative recovery SPRecovery and use SPR to make a backup. A word of caution, a backup made with SPR is not compatible with CW nor is a backup made with CW compatible with SPR.

    Rom Manager is telling me to "Fastboot or SBF a recovery onto your phone from your PC" what does this mean?

    Sorry, I'm not familiar enough with RM to advise. I believe there is a fix permissions settings and perhaps a clear for cache that may resolve but I'm not positive.

    That was the first thing I tried. In the past Fix Permissions solved any problems I had but not this time.

    After another reflash all of the "failed" backup started showing up, and although I have no idea if those are complete, one of the backups appeared to make it all the way. Now USB's having trouble connecting to Windows...yeesh.

    ...there it went!

    ...and the four backups with today's date are all under 1MB. Clockwork's obviously still not quite right. I'm actually looking to update to the most recent Froyo build from Bugless Beast 0.4 and these bugs are making me want to even more...if I can work them out!

    My suggestion for both issues -- if you can get into RM flash SPR and make a backup then install the rom you want.

    If you can't open RM or are hesitant to flash and use SPR go to the developers IRC and ask for assistance. Here is a link Real Time IRC Support, CLICK HERE! to that site.

    Let us know how you resolve.

    After flashing SPRecovery, phone got stuck at the moto logo for a minute or two then rebooted back as normal. This happened many times with Clockwork, and is now happening with SPRecovery. It seems as if this problem isn't with any specific recovery...

    I have a bad feeling about this :\

    Lets hope that is not the case. Did you do a factory reset and wipe data and cache during the last rom install?
