    I bought the premium version of rom manager. I'm on petes bb froyo release with sprecovery.

    Apparently I need to have clockworkmod to even use rom manager? Everything is greyed out except the 2 top options. the developer is no help. Can I get a walkthrough of how to do this? Do I need to back up anything beforehand? How do I do a nandroid backup.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    Did you flash the ClockWorkMod?

    Nope cause I didn't know what that would entail! Would I lose anything? Thanks for such a fast reply!

    So is that all I do? Will I lose my apps and settings?

    Press on that tab, and select the CDMA prompt, and it'll flash the ClockWorkMod to the latest version and then you'll be able to use RomManager

    No... only if you flash a new ROM, wiping data... but flashing ClockWorkMod doesn't do anything except install that recovery tool.

    Thanks. Didn't think it could be that simple.
