I have a rooted VZ GS3 with SU, ROM Manager, some Titanium frozen apps. Wanting to load a ROM but need to backup first. Whenever I attempt to backup with CWM (5.8.4.8) I get "Error while backing up boot image!". There is plenty of space so any idea what I am missing?

Bump. I'm having the same issue. My Cwm doesn't show my external sdcard either. It used to show internal sdcard and external sdcard but after soft bricking and using Odin to flash a Rom I lost that ability.

Is that a version of CWM Touch?

I believe this is a common issue, at least when I was having it and researched, and the accepted fix is to use a non-touch CWM. I'd recommend 6.0.1.0 as it has the ability for kexec and ensures you won't have an issue with flashing aftermarket kernels

Verified the issue is with CWM Touch. I reverted to the non-touch version, and I had no issues backing up.

Try using a different version of CWM touch. I have trouble backing up and restoring with touch too

I have no issues with K-exec CWM http://goo.im/devs/BeansTown106/SGS3...w_recovery.img

6.0.1.0 should do it. Also, make sure you are selecting the option to back up to the internal sdcard and not the external. That one took me a few minutes to realize as i don't have a 2nd sd card in my phone.
