NEW: I have created a script to easily update to the latest version of my recovery.

- Download this file ----> (updated to fix typo)
- Put it on your sdcard
- open adb and type:

sh /mnt/sdcard/ skyrocket
- it will reboot you into recovery
- starting in v14.2.1 it will automatically start installing and reboot when its done

Note: If your sdcard is not mounted on /mnt/sdcard then open the script and change the line that says path=/mnt/sdcard/sk8sUpdater to match your mount point. i.e. ICS users may have to change it to say path=/mnt/emmc/sk8sUpdater

I have ported touch recovery to Clockworkmod 6. I will be making updates to this just like my other touch recovery. I have added a few menu items and tweaks to make it like my CWM5 recovery.

Looking through the cwm code more in depth i have noticed MANY flaws with the code for new(er) phones that use /emmc instead of /sdcard as the main storage. i have now fixed those flaws in v9+.

Here is a video of how it works: --------> YOUTUBE LINK

This is what the new dedupe format does. This is a direct quote from the original creator of clockworkmod:
ClockworkMod Recovery now deduplicates files between builds. This results in way smaller backups.
Don't delete /sdcard(or emmc)/clockworkmod/blobs

I've gotten a few questions about how this works, so I figured I'd make a post on it.

Basically, here's what happens:

The files being backed up are hashed (sha256, not that it matters). Then it checks for a file with the name of the hash in

So, if the hash of the file was c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed, it looks for /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs/c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed

If the hash file is found, it continues on to the next file. Otherwise, it copies the file to the blobs directory with the file name being the hash.

ROMs and user data, for the most part, do not change too much between builds and backups. So, your APKs, system files, etc, are generally only stored once. This saves a ton of space. Especially between incremental backups.

Some of you may be thinking "well, how do I delete a backup?".
First, never delete the blobs directory. This would actually delete all your backups by rendering them unusable.
Simply delete the usual backup directory, and the next time you run a backup, all the unused hash files will be automatically delete (a process known as garbage collection). The recovery will show "Freeing space..." while this is happening.

Whats in the extras menu?

- change bootanimation (this lets you select a bootanimation form your internal sdcard. it backs up your current bootanimation to /{internal sdcard}/clockworkmod/ba_backup/. it only backs up the original bootanimation so if you keep changing your bootanimation you will still only have your original one in ba_backup.)

- enable/disable one confirm (this makes it so you only have to scroll through one confirm selection when installing something instead of having to go through 10 of them to click yes)

- hide/show backup & restore progress (this makes it so the progress bar when you backup/restore doesnt show up and makes backups/restores a bit faster since it doesnt have to show you the progress and files its backing up)

- select android_secure on internal/external (use this to select where you have .android_secure. default is internal, so if you have it on external make sure to choose this once to set it up)

- aroma file manager (file explorer)

- create custom zip (this will create a custom rom from the currently installed files you have on your phone. it takes your /system partition and /boot partition and makes them into a zip file ready to be flashed. the end product will be in clockworkmod/custom_rom/. this has recently been fixed to work on all phones/roms

- choose custom openrecoveryscript (read THIS)

- recovery info (shows the version of recovery and the build date)

- Special Backup & Restore (backup and restore your kernel/boot and /misc partitions)

- Misc Nandroid Settings (change time zone, turn preload support on/off (default is off), enable md5 checking)

its up to you. if you want to know how far along the progress is then show it. but itll take a little bit longer to backup. or if you dont care about how far along you are and just want it to be done in the fastest time possible then hide it.
