    Rooted with SPRecovery - Can I flash Clockwork Recovery?

    I rooted with SPRecovery and am running metiCkOne's latest Froyo ROM. I want to try MIUI and the directions say to flash with Clockwork. What actually happens if I flash Clockwork Recovery over SPRecovery on my Droid? Will I be able to go back to my current ROM, assuming I backup?

    Thanks,

    MIUI flashes fine through sprecovery. But if you want to switch its not an issue either.

    You can get the free version of ROM Manager in the Market and there is an option to flash CW Recovery and once on CW there is an option to flash back to SPR - just keep in mind that backups made with SPR cannot be restored while CW is your recovery and vice versa

    tp76 and jstafford is right on, but I'd like add my own little anal detail.

    Once you install Rom Manager and then flash the CWMRecovery, make sure you make a backup with RM/ClockWork _before_ you install MIUI. I know tp76 pretty much said so, but . . . . well, I just can't help myself.

    good luck

    Does the Rom Manager only work with Clockwork or can you backup your Rom if you are using sprecovery?

    Rom manager only works with clockwork. But you can backup with sprecovery as well. You just have to boot into recovery to do it.

    U would need to flash CW thru RM 1st before you can do anything else with RM

    I downloaded Rom Manager. I just wanted to double check... What is gonna happen when I flash over to CW from where I am at now? Any chance of something happening or is it just pretty much switching me from Spre to CW?

    There's really nothing to worry about, all you're changing is the recovery image in your system. No need to make a backup for that.
