    Ok, Im done with clockwork recovery.

    I like it, I really do.

    But this is literally the fifth time its bit me in arse. I just backed up a ROM, and then tried a new kernel (which broke everything) and restore back only to have EVERYTHING crash on boot. Yes I have the latest version of CW.

    Ironically enough, its most often when backing up koush's ROM.

    I know its CW, because I can flash an older image and the backups work--sometimes.

    In this case I had to flash back from 1.7.1 to 1.6.3 just to get my phone back up with a backup I made with....1.7.1.

    I'm done with it.

    I'm with you. It will not allow me restore my phone with anything it creates. I did exactly the same thing as you, tried a new kernel and that screwed everything up. But this was after having tried CM 5.0.4.2 about 6 times. And having to reload sprecovery each time in order to use a nandroid backup.Clockwork was fine until I had to restore using it. It has never worked for me.

    Yeah, I resigned myself to doing backups on SPRecovery and flashing his ROM's with ClockWork....its annoying to use two recovery images but hey...whatever works in my opinion.

    I had quite a few problems with it myself, last thing I want is a recovery program to be problematic, coughRSDLitecough. What good is a recovery program if you possibly won't be able to recover things.

    I had that issue a couple nights back running the scripts on one of the other threads. However, after reflashing 1.6.9 I was good. I have since had to restore using 1.7.1. guess we will see.

    I use CW to flash Koush's ROM's, get everything the way I like, use rcimage to switch back to sprecovery, then do an sprecovery back-up of Koush....it's a pain, but that way I can always retore anything with sprecovery and never have to use CW for recovery's, only initial flashes.
