    ROM Manager now supports the Droid Bionic! You still need to install CVPCS's bootstrap first. It does state that the "Official" bootstrap coming soon, which just means Koush has signed off on it and it will be available in the market then i suppose.

    Gotta love the speed at which the Bionic is being developed on. So happy I go this phone!

    Just a few questions. First, I loved CM7 on my DROID 1, but could never get it to flash to my D2G. Tried twice on two units, both failed and just replayed the boot image.
    Why did I need to flash cwm recovery when I had to use bootstrap? Is it still necessary for some reason? What does it do in this case?
    And would I have the same issues trying to do this with my Bionic that I did with my D2G?

    I hope so, because if I go into CWM via the Bionic Bootstrap app., I go into CWM 4.0.1.5, but if I use ROM Manager, I go into CWM 5.0.2.4

    Went to "manage backups" and the two nandroids I made with bootstrap didn't show up. Looks like CWM is using the internal SD partition for backups. Wouldn't this screw someone over if they bricked their Bionic?

    if someone bricked their bionic and had to use the FXZ(SBF) it wouldnt make a difference..

    however when just restoring/creating backups - i think that the saving to internal instead of external memory is a bug that needs to be fixed

    in the meantime you can create backups with rom manager and then manually cut and paste them into your external sd card via root explorer.

    Restoring will remain a problem because it will continue to go to the internal sdcard directory.
    We need software dedicated to the bionic, universal compatibility has worked so well before when all of the devices worked generally the same.
    Well maybe not completely different software, but more will have to be done to accommodate the Bionic than has been done before for previous devices.

    Just rebooted to recovery and the backups on my ext sd card were available. Looks like it's just an issue from within Rom Manager.

    What is the difference between the bionic bootstrap that came out a few weeks ago and the one in the market now? Besides $. I'm going to pay for the one in the market to support the cause but i was just wondering what the difference was. Can you boot into custom recovery when the phone is off? On the one that came out before you could only boot into android's recovery when the phone was powered down.

    How do you make a selection without the camera button now in recovery?
