Fake flash (Clockwork) means going into the Desire recovery then running a "Fake" flash file to get the custom recovery menus. Both can be flashed as Permanent (They boot automatically to the custom menus) using Unrevoked.

Permanent flash is good until you have a problem (what if...) and you need to send it back under warranty. Could result in void warranty if they check it. With fake you just pull the SD card out.

The difference is that the Amonra recovery is a permanent recovery because it's flashed into your Android. It is then always available. The ClockworkMod recovery is not permanent because it is used when it is started as a fake flash, so not permanent.

Delete please.

My advice is to try AmonRa as i read that C'Work didnt always wipe everything, and loads of other users reported this.
Give it a try (got nothing to lose)
LINK IS IN MY SIGNATURE - please report if this fixes any of the problems?
I too am using Clockwork mod, however I have absoulty no problems with OD 4.0. This maybe caused because I did a reformat of the vat and ext3 particians manualy in linux as I wanted to make double sure my SDCARD was wipped clean and the reserved block size was adjusted to 0% as I forgot to do it when I originaly created it. This was so I could squeeze a few more MegaBytes out of my SDCARD for use with app2sd.

If anyone has OD 4.0 issues, it maybe wise for you to do the same or use a different recovery program.

Why does Opendesire have poor image quality when viewing pictures in Gallery and in the browser?Image quality is also degraded in Rockplayer while viewing divx(some kind of posterization) P.s. already tried modded gallery3d ,same thing. NextSense rom doesnt have this,but OD is much,much better from all the roms I have tried so.... Anyone else noticed this?

What about just flashing the RUU back onto it? Removes root and custom recovery

AmonRa isnt permanent, i used it as a fake flash (apply updat.zip) and i still had the htc recovery too, its only permanent if you use unrevoked to Permanently flash it otherwise use it as a update.zip and its just like clockwork mod. i was just saying it might be worth the guys who are using clockwork to try AmonRa as it fixed ALL my problems since i switched. you dont have to but it worked for me and i havent had any of the problems some of these guys have had, i used to though when using C'work.
