Unable to backup using CWM
Mods: Not sure if this is the right section, if not please move this post.
This is what I have done so far...
1: Used ODIN (PDA MODE) to write "CI500_VZW_ED05_FROYO_REL.tar" and "atlas_v2.2" to my phone.
Phone is now stock (when flashing these files) from what I have read online so far.
2: Used ODIN (PDA MODE) to write "ec09-modem.tar.md5"
Phone now has a better modem (from what I have read.)
3: Used ODIN (PDA MODE) to write "cwm-recovery-ALL.tar"
So that I could have CWM (apparently its not as easy to install it with the Rom Manager, again, what I read online.) I think it was a 2.X voodoo version of CMW.
4: Used "CWM3_Voodoo.zip" to update the 2.x version to version 22.214.171.124x.ti (cwm voodoo lagfix recovery) and I did this while in the CWM. (I upgraded with the option "install zip from sdcard."
5: Used the option "Install ZIP from sdcard" to root my phone with this file, "su-126.96.36.199.x."
Phone is now rooted (ROOTCHECKER CONFIRMED)
SO, above is what I have done so far. (After trail and error that is, I use to have a nightly build of CM7 on the phone and had it rooted with CMW on it and working but they way I did it then was use a recovery.bin in ODIN. Which at the time the "backup" command still worked.)
My phone is working wonderfully right now, its rooted, got a upgraded modem, its still stock for the most part other then some apks i have frozen, but when I went into CWM to try and make a backup (since everything was working) it says "error while backing up boot image!"
What am I doing wrong? Is it the wrong version of CWM? Ive read that a voodoo version of it will work on a non voodoo kernel but idk. Any ideas?
