Is there an sbf to flash clockworkmod recovery similar to the SPRecovery file used in the "how to root any droid regardless..." method? I've tried flash_image from terminal but get a not found error even though i know the clockwork.img file is right there at /sdcard. RomManager reports that it's flashed clockworkmod but when i reboot into recovery there's SirPsycho's green droid. Some alternate method to change my recovery back to clockworkmod would be greatly appreciated.
Background: Last night I restored my original rooted 2.1 nandroid backup to retrieve some notes and got distracted by a phone call and left it on too long. Maybe I missed my chance to avert disaster, so be it, but when i picked up my phone it was at the "ready to install update" screen and i *think* i just turned it off and tried to reboot into recovery. ( i was still distracted ). I became undistracted when i found that instead of good ol' CWR i had the white triangle / phone icon and no user recovery. So I sbf'd SPR onto it, then the busybox/su/root file, then rebooted, opened RomManager, flashed CWR, set up a restore to my current CM6.1RC3 and let it reboot. No joy; SPR came up instead and just sat there.
Since then i've gone back into RM and "reflashed" CWR a few hundred times, tried several times to unsinstall and reinstall RM (same result). I've also downloaded the correct CWR.img file and tried to flash it from terminal emulator, no joy. I've tried using ROM Manager to flash an older version of CWR and can't, getting "An error occured while flashing your recovery."
lol i've also (inadvertantly/frustratedly) ended up removing the recovery altogether (probably from accidentally initiating an SPR backup and then battery pulling when it was an hour later and still not finished); after that booting while holding the "X" was stuck at "M"; but reflashing the SPR file from RSDLite got me the SPRecovery again.
When I have freshly flashed the SPR.sbf file, or flashed alternate recovery in RomManager, it reports SPR as the current recovery, and when i "flash" CWR from RomManaGER, it changes and reports that CWR 2.5.01 is the currently installed recovery, but no matter what i've tried, when i boot into recovery the text is blue not green. grr.
i've searched quite a bit before posting and am quite frustrated at this point. i've got a bazillion nandroid backups, but they are all clockwork and not SPRecovery format. The only way I now seem to be able to flash a different recovery is via RSDLite.
SO, either an sbf file to flash ClockworkModRecovery, an alternate way to change my recovery, or if there were some way to use SPR to restore from a nandroid backup created with CWR, but i'm not sure if the recovery itself is in the nandroid backup?
not pulling my hair out yet, but quite a bit past simple frustration.
