    I have always used ClockworkMod recovery because its simple but I've heard great things about the others.

    What's your personal favorite and why?

    I'm thinking about trying one of the others to try and learn more!

    All input is appreciated!!!

    I use Clockwork and Sprecovery. To install ROMs and theme I use SPrecovery because I can get into the SD card for .zip files quickly. I use Clockwork to do my back-ups because it loads EVERYTHING as long as I don't wipe data. I haven't tried RZRecovery. Hope this opinion helps.

    It absolutely helps. I'm trying to get as many opinions as possible because I want to hear reasons why everyone thinks one is better then the other. What do you mean you can get to .zip files easier then clockwork?

    RZrecovery is the way to go. All the stability of SPRecovery and tons more functionality than Clockwork. It's the new hotness. Plus you can charge your battery while in recovery, that feature alone makes it the only recovery I'll use.

    oh yeah, he threw in a flashlight option as well just for kicks.

    If I try RZRecovery, I know I can easily go back to Clockwork through Rom Manager. But, can I easily go back to RZRecovery?

    RZ is as easy to install as any update.zip, just re-flash with Clockwork and you're good to go.

    Yes, all you have to do is flash the update.zip containing RZR from within Clockwork or SPR

    I was looking it to see how to install RZ and all I could find was the process using ADB which I've never used. I can learn but I thought it would be easier.

    But the way you guys describe it, its easy! So I do it EXACTLY like another rom? I just want to make sure.

    Also is this the recovery that you all use? Why do you prefer it over Clockwork?

    Can a backup made with SPR be restored using RZRecovery?

    I have been using SPR up until now and I have kept the backups I have made of different ROMs (that's how I swithch between them) and I would hate to not be able to use them any more.

    Spr is most stable, but lacks features and hasn't been updated in a while...
    Clockworkmod is not quite as stable but has more options and can be used with rom manager
    Rzr is as stable as spr, has more options than cwm, but doesn't work on rom manager
