    Hello All.

    I flashed the Amon Recovery couple of weeks ago.
    ROM Manager has just finally got their Clockwork recovery and I'd like to switch to that.
    How easy is it to do that?

    As far as I know, CWM is still unofficial. If you want CWM, then you can always grab the recovery and flash it in HBOOT just like AmonRa. I've found that AmonRa has been more stable on the Rezound and would wait for an official CWM before trusting it.

    Hmm
    I just got an update for ROM Manager.
    Until that update it told me that my phone was unsupported.
    Now it doesn't.
    Shouldn't that mean it's officially released?
    I can flash over the top of Aman?

    I just downloaded ROM manager and it looks like the Rezound is supported under CWM. So yeah go for it.

    Yup.
    I got the same result.
    Tried to flash and it said not supported.
    Said something about flashing manually but I haven't had time to research it.

    Yes.

    Kind of off topic but I can't see why everyone wants CWM so bad. AmonRa works perfectly fine and outside of the familiarity with the product there's no reason to "wait" for CWM since we have a viable working product now. CWM isn't going to make some of the flashing woes just disappear. Until we get S-OFF(if that ever happens) you'll still need to manually flash kernels.

    I only want it because of the ease of use of ROM Manager.
    Easier to add and update Toms from a GUI rather than command line, as it were.
