    Yea, Clockwork Recovery does suck. I wanted to try out Cyanogen ROM, so I installed CW. I made a backup of my bugless beast install and then installed Cyanogen. After using it for awhile I wanted to revert back. Tried to restore the backup, after that couldn't boot at all. Just got to Motorola logo and froze. I thought I had bricked my phone for a little bit. Thankfully I was able to just reinstall Cyanogen from the SD card. After that I reinstalled sprecovery/nandroid and reinstalled Bugless Beast. I'm not touching Cyanogen again until CW isn't required.

    What's with the people who claimed that clockwork was so superior when it clearly is buggy as hell in its current state?

    I had a sneaking suspicion that CW was bad news from the get go. I dont mean to imply that the dev is unintelligent or malicious, but I had a feeling that two recovery apps would clash for a lot of people.

    There was an issue with 1.7.7 but 1.7.7.3 is fine. I've backed up and restored with no problems.

    If you get force closes on restores, you can fix those by running Fix Permissions within ROM Manager. Or fix_permissions from adb. I'll just make that part of the restore process.

    It always works for some and never works for others.

    Also, if you hop onto IRC or PM me, I can give you my gchat. I'd be more than happy to help you and really want to fix any bugs I find in the recovery. Keep in mind that this recovery is currently not just running on the Droid, but on around 8 phones (Tattoo, N1, Sapphire, Magic, Dream, Eris, Hero, Droid...). So there are bound to be bugs, as I work around the slight differences between each phone.

    But, I intend to be very supportive, but simply posting "recovery is broken, I am switching" isn't going to help me get the problem resolved. I'm very responsive to issues, just ask Blackdroid.
