    I have ss v4.7 and had to use clockworkmod recovery to install ROM.
    I did this manually...got boot loops..so went the ROM manager route. Worked finally.

    To my understanding clockworkmod recovery will not block ota updates from verizon. SPrecover will.

    however...doesnt SS ota updates require clockworkmod recovery to get updates from chevy?

    I dont want to lose what I have now as a result of verizon OTA, but at the same time, I dont want to not get chevy OTA by flashing to SPrecovery. Do I basically have to go back and forth and periodically check for chevy updates..flash clockworkmod recovery...check for updates....flash back to SPrecovery to prevent verizon OTA.

    I keep getting boot loops (animation,eye, "droid") Installed bot through RM and Clockwork recovery, did not wipe. I like to avoid having to wipe and set everything up gain, is this necessary? Is it possible my droid cannot handle the kernel package with this ROM? Also, I am comming from stock FRG22D, could that be the problem?

    Yak-

    Chevy SS 4.7 blocks Verizon OTA updates, won't even show up under settings>about phone>system updates.so no worries

    To get Chevy OTA's check under settings>ChevyNo1 Tools
    they will display there when available.

    As long as you make a backup via Rom Manager and Clockwork Mod you wont lose what you have. Then again, I havent used SPRecovery for a long time and havent had ANY probs with this ROM. I keep my droid on clockwork mod for its ease of use with ROM Manager, backing up my rom every few days or so...

    Reboot back into recovery, wipe data and cache then reboot.

    You can still receive my OTA updates even with SPR - but it will reboot to recovery and fail to install - mount the SD and rename the downloaded file (root of SD) to update.zip. Allow update, install, then reboot.

    CWR will do all this automatically for you.
