Lol, wise @55... a backup from directly after u installed cwm. Of just a rooted factory Rom. Your other problem seems personal & I can't help you there, haro can.

ok so I followed all of MT's instruction. Then I restored my data using CWM backup to get my programs back..... is this bad? Seems to be running fine for me, just seemed like a PIA to have to reinstall everything.

You need it to install cwm, but once on gb, don't flash stock recovery! It is the zv4 recovery and will not boot. You can also install clockwork the manual way through adb, that way you get a back up of the stock recovery.

Speaking of cwm, this is just an FYI for those that care. I installed the GB update, then rooted via the one-click-root with SU 3.

I installed Revotoolkit to install CWM. Everything worked fine. I rebooted into CWM okay just to test it. I rebooted back into GB to do a couple more things before installing Gingervolt. When I went to reboot back into CWM, it didn't work. When I expected to see CWM, it looked like an analog TV static for a second and then it went blank again. I pulled the battery and rebooted back to GB. I used Revotoolkit and it said the recovery image version was not found again.

I repeated this a few times to verify, but the CWM wouldn't stick after one reboot.

I have loaded Gingervolt now and CWM is still there after I booted up.
