    So after reading the threads about cyanogen the past couple of days it has definitely raised my curiosity about the rom. I have a few questions first.

    1. If I flash clockwork & cyan and decide I don't like it, all I have to do is "flash alternate recovery" and it will uninstall clockwork?

    2. I have seen how the google apps are not coupled with the ROM. I see that there is a separate file to download, do I just update.zip this.

    3. I searched the forums and didn't find a good guide for going from a SPRecovery Rom to a clockwork rom. If anybody knows one could the direct me to it.

    Thanks in advance

    I also have these same questions, Thanks. I've been running Chevy's ROM's for the last month and have had no issues. Since the begining I've used Psyco's SPRecovery and have also had no issues. One of my guys is just raving about Cyanogens roms and I want to give it a try. I understand that I need clockworkmod for this. If I do a nandroid back up with SPRecovery can I use clockworkmod to restore?

    The guide is done it is in the Rescue squad section. Rom Manager is the easiest way to go back and forth and to install cyanogen roms.
