    I have ever since rooted, been using sprecovery. Well today I tried to test out this ROM Manager app I have been hearing about, and it says I need to flash clockworkmod.

    My question is, can I have both sprecovery and clockwork? What will happen if I hold down x when booting the phone? Will sprecovery show up(as it does now) or will clock work?

    If I can't have both, which should I be using now? If clockwork, how do I remove sprecovery?

    You can only have one or the other. Not both. If you choose the first option in ROM Manager to flash ClockworkMod Recovery, whenever you hold x and the power button you will see the ClockworkMod recovery screen instead of SPRecovery. And you don't have to remove either one if you flash one of them. They just overwrite the other one.

    Which is better? Does clockwork use its own back-ups seperate than sprecovery's nandroid?

    Also if I do switch, can I leave the SPRecovery file in the root of my card or will that cause problems?

    theyre both good sum ppl like one more than the other but its a personal preference...and yes niether back-ups are compatable with the other, you can leave your sprecovery files in your nandroid file and if you choose to go back to sprecovery itll be waiting for you to download just as will clockwork files also..
