    I suddenly seemed to have lost the SPRecovery function when using Clockwork.

    When I ask for altnernate recovery, it confirms that SPRecovery has been activated but when I re-boot into recovery, it brings me to Clockwork menus.

    I can no longer backup using SPRecovery where once before I had a choice.

    I even uninstalled Clockwork but when I reboot into recovery, it brings me into Clockwork menus.

    Does a specific ROM prevent/change that? I am using Sourcery 1.2. I noticed it on PE 4.1 as well.

    How can I get back that function as I like having the option to use Nandroid or Clockwork?

    Thanks!

    Wow..thanks...but OH MY! :)

    I was afraid of this. LOL

    So I have to re-install based on a cursory reading of the very detailed instructions? Will I lose everything? Do I have to "start over?"

    EDIT: Hang on! I kept flashing CW then SPR per your first line and now it is working! I had to do it numerous times but it fianlly re-booted into SPE! Thanks again. For the life of me, I couldn't get to SPR for about a week.

    So I am guessing flashing alternate recovery/flashing CW/flashing alternate recovery/flashing CW/flashing alternative recovery yields negative results ?
