    I updated to ClockworkMod Recovery v1.7.8.4 and attempted to backup my BB 0.9 so I can re-flash to BD 8.1.1 - I get this error:

    Backing up boot...
    Error while dumping boot image

    So I go into nandroid / backup and get the same error.

    Not sure if it's happening to others or not, but I'm sort of bummed I can't save a BB to go back to it later.

    Looks like it's across the board for everyone running 1.7.8.4. Need to flash an old version from clockworkmod folder on the sdcard.

    Yes, it is happening to me also. I did a backup and restore right before upgrading that worked flawlessly also.

    I'm sure a fix is on the way...
