    Um...what? That was pretty amusing and scary at the same time, there's absolutely zero point in an sbf flash. Clockwork recovery does everything that SPRecovery does and it's integrated into Rom Manager, making it by far the easiest way to backup/restore/flash roms, no need for the 'update.zip' crap of SPrecovery.

    Lets see, if you have 10 people you're going to have 10 different answers. Some mods have stock phones, some have rooted phones, some use ROM Manager, some use SPRecovery. I didn't realize as a moderator group we have to all like the same thing, do we? I have both, I bought ROM Manager back when a certain ROM was supported because I thought CW would be easier to use. Now that ROM dev is gone but they keep putting his ROM on there. I've used both personally and find SPRecovery to be better for my use.

    Your statements are true enough. No one has to like every application. But if you (not you personally) are going to spread dislike for an application, I would like to see facts and not anecdotal information. ROM Manager has had intermittent problems that could be solved easily with a little training instead of scare tactics.

    You have to remember when a MOD warns you away from something on a forum, it carries a lot more weight than if I were to give the warning.

    I bought ROM Manager for the same reason you did. I also uninstalled for the same reason you did. I remember all the MOD here that were fond of that dev and his ROM's. I went back to ROM Manager when I started playing with all the other ROMs on DF and stayed with it pretty much since. I don't have issues with it, because it is a sound app. Hate can't change that.

    Nope. I fully understaind the application, and I hate it. Why should I deal with faulty installs and a missing recovery?
    Mods are people too. They have likes and dislikes. A lot of the mods were just regular forumites before they got their position. They have a right to express their opinions. Also, don't you think it gets annoying to them see people post thread after thread, and their problem over half the time goes back to ROM Manager?

    Sorry, but ROM Manager brings ROMs to the average person, which causes more problems than it's worth.

    Fair enough. I am expressing personal feelings about ROM Manager. I've had problems and issues with it and it wasn't user error. I remain neutral on some topics, but when it comes to likes and dislikes about a program, I will tell you how I feel.

    I did the exact opposite. I tried to flash a Rom using SPR and all my back ups are on clockwork mod. Im still stuck in the spf recovery screen. How can I get to clockwork and get my backups? Please help!

    Tanknspank,

    No need to apologize for that last paragraph.

    Understood and accepted as the way it should be. Would I be going to far with this if I ask you to add a qualifier to your opinion about ROM Manager? Something like "Although I haven't used it since April."
