Default Which Recovery for CM7?

Problem: I flashed newer versions of CWM (5.5 and 6.0.2) and TWRP 2.3.3 in prep for trying CM11. Neither recovery seems to be able to create a Nandroid of CM7. They both hang about 25% into the job.

So I'm not sure I'll have a valid backup, I'm not sure I'll be able to restore my current Nandroid, and I'm not sure I'll be able to flash a new ROM. Before I do anything else, can someone point me to a known working recovery for CM7.2?

Thanks!

If Nandroid fails, try online nandroid or titanium backup. If those fail, then just try using TWRP 2.6.3 off SD (I couldn't get it to work from EMMC), and backup/install from there. If no backup options work, just try not backing up; you can always just use repart.img to restore to 1.4.2.

I eventually found a flashable zip of CWM 5.0.2.8 and was able to flash it sucessfully. Booted to recovery and was able to make a full Nandroid. Enough for now, I'll fool with CM11 another day.
