All credit for this software goes to the dev (Koushik Dutta and anyone else on his team).

** Nandroid backups made on previous versions of CWM cannot be restored in CWM 5.0.x.x. So if you have backups made in versions 2.5.x.x or 3.0.x.x, you will not be able to restore them once you've upgraded. **

I still don't know how this flew over our heads.

Either way, glad you provided every possible method to upgrade.

As far as I know, the jump was made straight from 3.0.2.4 to 5.0.0.1. I have yet to see a changelog, but if anyone finds one, I'll add it to the OP. After poking through the menus, nothing obvious stood out, so it seems to be a bug fix and "behind the scenes" release.

-From Mr.Dutta via G+
I've just finished releasing updates to a bunch of devices to ClockworkMod Recovery 5.

Major changes:
Backups now use tar over yaffs for everything except mtd partitions. Backups got way faster.
Backups now preserve the filesystem type at time of backup. Restores will restore the appropriate filesystem type at restore.

Please update to ROM Manager 4.4.0.3 or higher and try out the new recovery!

Troubleshooting:
Flashing issues: If a recovery does not flash properly, enable erase recovery in settings and try flashing it again. Recovery flashing can be finicky at times.
Bugs: Report them to me! You can always revert back to the older recovery too from within ROM Manager!

I decided to flash the upgrade. The flash went perfectly. However, I can't boot into recovery while within Android. I have to power off and boot into the bootloader and then select recovery... Whenever I try to reboot to recovery via the Android UI, it reboots and hangs at the boot splash screen.. It doesn't even work if you select the option from the ROM Manager itself just hangs... I rolled back to previous version and its working again...
Possible bug??...

I'm not quite sure if that's a bug. Since there's a lot of internal changes, I'm assuming the path it takes from Android to CWM has changed. So maybe that's why we're stuck at the splash screen.

But that's not too big of a problem. So far it's much faster than the previous versions.

WOW! I just did a backup of my current Rom and it literally took like 1 minute! It's WAY faster now.

I'm not having that issue at all. I can reboot into recovery using the power menu within Faux's 1.3.1 rom and it works perfectly. I can't speak about other roms, but just letting you all know that Faux's latest works fine.
