    Have you tried using the "Flash Alternate Recovery" option in ROM Manager?

    I had some troubles with the same thing with an older version that would not boot to SPrecovery with Cyanogen. I had to install UltimateDroid, then flash to SPrecovery. That seemed to work OK.

    However, if you're already using ROM Manager, why would you want to go back? Hopefully, when you switched ROMs you would have made a backup using ROM Manager. You should restore your backup with that, not clockwork directly.

    Yes I did try flash alternate recovery and it said successful but I still boot into clockwork and now i open rom manager and it says i need clockwork and the alternate recovery is grayed out.. I even ran terminal emulator and tried flashing "flash_image" and "recovery-0.99.3b.img" using the scripts I used when I first rooted my phone and nada.. how can i use clockwork to install nandroid backups from when I had sprrecovery?? possible? :cus: lol

    As far as I am aware you cannot install sprecovery nandroid via ROM manager.

    As sad as this might be, you might have to flash a sbf file and start all over.

    Let's see. You tried to push from adb, but have you tried it from terminal emulator straight from the phone?

    Edit: I got all that backwards, did you try pushing through adb?

    so does no roms also mean no backups?

    clockwork allows you to mount while in the recovery to get a Rom package onto the phone.

    just download the Rom you wanted, usb to the computer, boot the phone, mount, transfer, install.

    Specifically what remix are you using so I can try to find a direct d/l for you.

    This process must work. If you look at the link I included in my first reply the OP used this method to get up and running.

    I don't see why if you are installing sprecovery correctly, but odder things have been known to happen

    no offense, and I know we are working for the same goal... But why would it matter if I said the same thing so he could read the reply in his thread?

    I didn't follow your link, you also said your response might not be accurate, where I have been in his shoes and had to do the same thing he is doing now.

    This forum isn't about who can help more or in a better way, it's about helping at all...

    Preference. I like them both for different reasons.

    If you're up and running good now, why ruin the good thing? :p
