    To do this D/L Rom Manager from the market and that will let you flash Clockwork Mod and back to SPR, if you like.

    Your Rom won't change at all, and you won't lose your backups per se. Backups made with SPR are not compatible with CM and vice versa, but once you flash CW you can make a new backup.

    Bakups made with CW are not compatible with SPR nor are backups made with SPR compatible with CW. Therefore, the stock backup you made with SPR can only be restored with SPR.

    Depends how bad it goofs.
    But simply flashing CM thru Rom Manager will not mess up your phone, then just make a backup with CW, and yes RM will let you flash back and forth between CW and SPR.

    Tallica is correct!

    When I rooted RM/CW was not available so I used SPRecovery. I purchased RM so that I could help others via the Rescue Squad. I continue to use SPR by flashing the "Alternate recovery" option in RM.

    Thing is though, you have to keep track of which backup was done with which recovery. If you back up with CW then switch to SP Recovery, your CW backup is not available. Flash back to SP Recovery, and it should be waiting for you, right where you left it.

    There's a section here on the forum that's devoted to the Devour - Motorola Devour - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum You should wander around over there and check out the various threads.

    HTH,

    i rooted my OG Droid following these directions here and i would like to install ROM Manager. I have installed it from the market. Problem is, when i flash it and then reboot it gets stuck at the M and the only way to get my phone to boot again it to flash the SPRecovery sbf back.

    I'm confused. You do not need to flash RM just install. Once your install then select either ClockWork recovery or SPR (alternate recovery). Make a backup and install a rom

    Yes you do install CW. Sorry, I was not understanding what you were doing. Are you sure that the root was successful?

    I suggest this -- Open RM scroll to the bottom and tap install SPRecovery alternate recovery and see if that works. If so , you can use SPR as your recovery to make backups and install roms. I've used SPR for over a year and it is very stable

    i am able to get into SPR just fine by holding X on boot. i am just more familiar with ROM Manager and never used SPR. I like that i can install ROMS without renaming them to update.zip. or can you also do this on SPR?
