Default [RECOVERY] [APPS] ROM Manager and Clockwork Recovery Image v1.6 3/8/2010

Hi everyone, I've written a brand spanking new recovery with a Android application front end!

To install my ROM Manager and recovery, simply download ROM Manager from the Market!

ROM Manager:

ClockworkMod Recovery:

ClockworkMod Recovery is based off the eclair recovery image. Features include Nandroid backup, adb shell, advanced options (ignore asserts and signature checks), and file browser for choosing update.zips (you can now organize your stuff by directory).

Bug fixes.
File list now scrolls in recovery.
Added hooks for ROM Manager.

Initial public release.

For a manual installation of the recovery, you can download it from my website:

Are there any new options that are not available in Amon_RA's recovery image?

Oohh! I'm liking the idea of being able to store zip's in directories then being able to browse to those directories in the recovery rom to flash them. I can't tell you how many times I've had to boot out of recovery and use Astro to move a zip from my downloads folder when I wasn't near a computer that I could use ADB to do that with.

I'll wait for Amon_RA to make the file browser feature. That's the only feature that Amon_RA recovery (cyanogen recovery) is missing to make it MORE perfect.

While everyone is putting forth their feature requests, I'd might as well offer my $0.02 ... any chance we could get a feature to boot a custom kernel image or even an option to dual-boot from a zImage ala Debian?
