    Might I inquire as to why? CW is vastly superior.

    And there are links everywhere on this - I'll see if I can find them for you.

    Hello Mtz,

    Now that you are rooted go into the market and download ROM Manager. Once you have ROM Manager on your phone open it up and once open you will see a option that says Flash ClockworkMod Recovery. Just click that option and the phone will do the rest.

    Folks, I've been working with SPR and CW for quite some time. My personal opinion, use SPR. It is more reliable and causes less problems. CW has more issues, constant failures, and just not as reliable, in my opinion.

    This is true from my experience as well, the concept of cw is awesome and I wanted to love it but on more than one occasion it gave me big problems. I've been told that the problems stem not from cw but rather the mods themselves, though I'm not sure. Either way sp is reliable 100% of the time, no real bells and whistles, but it has everything you need AND works everytime(not counting user error)

    I go back to my SPRecovery is a pickup truck and CW Recovery is a sports car. Lots more bells and whistles but spend a lot more time in the shop. :)

    I gotta agree with him. SPRecovery has given me ZERO problems, while I had a few while using CW.

    Open rom manager and scroll to the bottom. You should see flash alternate recovery image or something similar. That option should do it for you. If not you have an issue.

    Yeah I never do anything through rom manager it self while on the phone. I always reboot to the clockwork recovery itself. I have never had any issues with it. Works everytime for me. I like sp recovery as well though cause that was the first one I used. But I guess everyone likes there own. But good to know incase I start having problems with clockwork I will switch back to sp.
