The choice essentially boils down to personal preference. Amon-ra arguably has a nicer looking interface (I prefer it at any rate), while Clockwork integrates with Rom Manager. I currently have Amon-ra installed. You can flash Amon-ra from Rom Manager; the menu entry near the bottom should say "flash alternate recovery".

Another feature of Clockwork is that it allows the user to navigate through subdirectories to select the zip file to flash. Not a killer feature for me, but I'm not everyone.

Well that's not what to has at the bottom. It says ra something but the doesn't say amon ra recovery. Is amon ra recovery the alternative recovery? Hm, I have no idea how to do this. Help?

Stick with Amon, I don't think clockwork backs up the Wimax flash partition which is pretty big since people seem to be messing up their wimax radios/settings.

Install rom manager from the market. Then just press the flash alternate recovery. It should install
Amon's recovery. If that option is greyed out, install clockwork first, then the option to install the alternate recovery should be able to be selected.

You surely realize that you are asking a simple question in the Development forum, right?

You do realize there is a forum for questions, right? It's called ....... Evo 4G Q&A.

You do realize you are taking up someone's valuable time and making them MOVE YOUR post to the correct forum, when as a adult (?) you should have been able to do that in the first place, when you created the post.

Please... have some respect for these forums, create your posts in the appropriate forum, it's really not that hard to do.

Oh, wait I take all this back.....Your nym sounded familiar so went back and saw some of your posts to see why it rang a bell.

You're the guy with questions such as

Cm6, what is it?
Does unrevoked forever come with Nandroid?
Does anyone know how to do a nand backup?

Dude, you really should just stop creating any new posts and READ. Every question you've asked, are questions that should have been answered by doing the most basic of reading, BEFORE you even root your phone.
