The only thing is you would have to boot into recovery right away after flashing and I can create a zip for you to flash that would remove system/etc/install-recovery.sh. Otherwise it will pull the stock recovery from the boot.img and override clockworkmod.
The other option would be to include recovery with a kernel that you can flash with odin.
Many thanks, im going for it now. It appears there is no system/etc/install-recovery.sh, it may exist in another location or reinstalls the default recovery.img from somewhere else. I'm going to look around for it although this is entirely new to me.
The P6800 CWM from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1470896
works, thanks to ezynow for his port to the P6800. No automatic reinstalls of the original recovery on bootup/shutdown. I haven't tested backups/restores/cache wipes, will post after I try each and report.
It appears backups are getting placed on the internal memory sdcard for the default backup option.
Backup to internal SDcard error, when using internal backup:
E:Unable to open ums lunfile (No such file or directory)Couldn't open directory. No files found
Mounting as USB storage and restore from sdcard produces the same errors. Going to see what I can find/figure out. And now the internal sdcard is working and going to the actual microsd card. So what triggered it?
Update: /Everything seems to be working with the p6800 cwm on the vzw 7.7
