[RECOVERY] [3/30/11] Updated ClockworkMod for ALL 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 is a "red" cwm recovery, and it will work with both voodoo and non-voodoo installations.
cwm-recovery-ALL.zip can be flashed via any cwm recovery.
if you are using odin, then use the cwm-recovery-ALL odin (.tar) package.
updated 3/29 - thanks to GizmoDroid for help with fixing fix_permissions script and root permissions typo that screwed up nandroid restores
updated 3/30 - fixed 'umount' typo - actually *fixed* fix_permissions this time - fixed odin/heimdall recovery attachment
Flash in CWMR - xda-developers
Flash in ODIN - xda-developers
The bad thing is that ROM's like Superclean have kernel/recovery/OS all bundled together, so if they flash CWM first, then flash the rom, CWM will be overwritten.
Here is a version of the flash with the /system files stripped out. I would recommend using this, or the odin file, if you are using custom kernels.
