I like cwm. I've become a little biased to cwm from my gnex days when I think I spent now time in cwm that in android from flashing roms all the time. I never was able to keep any data on the phone because I was always wipe wipe wiping everything haha

Thanks for the post. Is there a reason to upgrade from the 7100 CWM recovery that's already on my phone?

Have you guys tried TWRP ?? It's pretty damn robust. I switched from CWM ever since I got the Note 2 and haven't looked back. The dev updates it pretty regularly which is a definite plus.

I've been running TWRP for a while. I preferred the touch screen interface but I know CWM has it as well. Is there any major difference between the two? From my understanding CWM has been around longer but other than that I don't know if there is any difference. Is there a benefit of either or is it just a personal preference at this point? Either way, thanks to the Op for letting others know.

I haven't used T889 CMW so can't compare the two precisely, but the 7100 CMW didn't backup efs partition and stuff whereas TWRP does. And that alone was enough for me to switch.

I might need to try it out. Also what's up with that crappy rom manager app by the guy from clockwork? It is truly terrible. And never works right EVER. I hate that app.

You would think he was capable of making a pretty good app considering how widespread His Recovery is!

I've used it on several phones and I'd wholeheartedly sucks sucks

personally 4EXT is much cleaner and just as robust as either TWRP or CWM. I know there is talk of 4EXT coming to the Note II, got my fingers crossed

Koush is extremely talented no doubt about that, but things have changed. Rom manager used to be great before 4.0. Now everything has become so mainstream and easy. The shelf life of that app is beyond over. Apps don't last forever. Sometimes it's because of os evolution and other times it's because of dwindling interest on the dev's part . That's how new apps are released.

TWRP Bootloop
I've been usin TWRP for the longest time, on my sgs III and Note II. All of a sudden last week I go into recovery to flash an add on and I get a boot loop in TWRP. Couldn't even pull battery and boot system back. Had to odin CWM, then I updated the TWRP script and would still get a bootloop. So I odin'd back to CWM again and staying for the time bein.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen?

Currently on My Rom 4.1.2.v2

hmm really? Never encountered this myself. It's hard for recovery to get corrupt, unless the addon messed up that partition. Are you on the latest version (2.3.3.1) ?
