[RECOVERY] Updated ClockworkMod for all (non-voodoo) ROMs
So the current iterations of cwm seem to have trouble working reliably with the newer froyo ROMs, and koush's recovery (although seeming to work correctly) is quite broken. So......
please find below a new recovery package that should work for any ROM for the fascinate, mesmerize, or showcase.
This recovery is used via fakeflash, ie: it flashes a stock 2e recovery that uses test-keys, allowing you to flash test-key signed update.zips. After installing the recovery, flash update.zip from the stock recovery to get to cwm. The recovery is red, just like the voodoo versions of cwm, but it WILL NOT work with a voodoo installation (yet).
cwm_froyo.zip can be flashed via any cwm recovery, and will place the new update.zip on sdcard for you.
if you are using odin or heimdall, then use the cwm_froyo-odin package. Unzip it, place update.zip on /sdcard, and flash cwm_froyo.tar via odin or heimdall.
