    You need to root prior to using ROM manager. Doesnt look like unlocking the bootloader is enough. The app errors when running privelage command.

    Same here. Were you able to reboot and still get in or did you have to edit that System>recovery-from-boot.p file?

    Backed myself up earlier today as well. Had to delete that system file though. Renaming it didn't help.

    Which is why I made this thread. :D Just go into Root Explorer, go to System>recovery-from-boot.p and change it to "1recovery-from-boot.p" or delete it and you should now have CWM permanently.

    I renamed it and it's working perfect. Tested it 5 times before posting.

    Haha, no worries. Your thread made we want to get ROOT done now. Ive been unlocked waiting for the Recovery just haven't rooted. I used Droid Life instructions. I pushed the su.zip to /sdcard/ with adb and flashed the recovery with fastboot. Then booted into recovery and flashed the su.zip. Then Downloaded ROM manager, flashed recovery and am backing up now!

    I renamed the file by adding .bak on the end and also removed all permissions. I have no issues keeping cwm recovery on my nex. Just a suggestion rather than adding a 1 to it. I'm sure both will work. Just remove permissions from that is you have an issue. If you boot and stock recovery is there reflash cwm recovery before renaming and changing permission again

    I ended up just deleting it, and that worked for me. Now my problem is getting that Android is Upgrading window to go away. Everytime I reboot or try to flash that google wallet it does it.

    Then after that, I am going to have to try getting google wallet to stop FC'ing.

    Deleting sure will work but when or if u need to put the stock recovery back you're going to have to do it the fastboot method rather than renaming and rebooting.

    My suggestion was an alternative not a must.

    Haven't tried gwallet yet
