    Nandroid backup missing both the recovery.img and boot.img

    I am on a rooted droid X. The backup was made using nandroid Backup Droid X bootstrap. The backup is missing both the recovery.img and boot.img


    In my clockworkmod/backup. I have:
    system.img
    data.img
    .android_secure.img
    cache.img
    nandroid.m5

    I want to do my first custom rom but I am concerned with not having the recovery.img and boot.img in the backup. Are my concerns warranted? If so, how can i get them? Also, I wanted to get a complete backup without using Backup Droid X bootstrap but could not find out where/how to make this backup. Any help or comments are greatly appreciated.

    U can make back ups onto your computer if u don't trust your SD card. I did. Just hook it up and browse to the folder where the .img file is saved.

    Recovery is CWR and doesn't get erased during any of the rom install/wipe functions.

    Boot loader is locked on your phone, isn't it? If it is, it can not be written over/replaced.

    Those are my best guesses. I did look and my old Droid 1 Nandroid Backups have recovery and boot. My Nandroid Backups for the Bionic have neither. The difference seems to be locked bootloader.
