Unix-based operating systems include MD5 sum utilities in their distribution packages, whereas Windows users use third-party applications.

Successful verification of the md5 file shows that the files are the same as at the time of packing and "not corrupted".
Consider this,
You flash a ROM which did not have a correct md5 checksum.
It may mean that the ROM was corrupted due to some reason and you may end up with a bricked phone.

though the chances of this happening are pretty low with a backup.. but better safe than sorry.

and i changed my username cause i liked it

Or you can simply use the app root toolbox available in the market.

Well yeah, MD5 is a great thing when it comes to checking consistency of a file, but for example, it bothers me because i have about 5-6 rom backups and they are all difrent roms, so i need to change the name of folder from date-time stamp to name of the rom, but when i do that i cant restore it any more because MD5 checksum apperantly checks the folders name also so i have to rename it again to date stamp... but sometimes it can be useful... just sayin'

I don't think cwm checks the backup names. I've got a couple of backups renamed to the ROM names and they work well.
