No. I would put them in a subfolder and leave them there. AFAIK the recovery is being loaded from these files on the SD card. It may be loaded into the recovery partition created by DAF.ex in this procedure in the future, but even then, loading a ROM will not wipe this out.

Any way to fix this?
I put the two files in the root of the SD card ...
Your MAGDLR may still be using a different directory for trying to launch Recovery. Try putting these files in a directory and choosing that Dir for SD boot.

You can but you will not be able to load recovery from SD until you put them back. You might want to keep them and use them to back up your ROM until we have another way to get into recovery. Why not have more tools? :)

Not Yet. This could come about the time they link recovery to MAGDLR properly. We will see.

Well, you might not have to run DAF.exe but your NAND will not be repartitioned to support the new partition layout that includes a recovery partition.

E:Can't find MISC:

or am I missing something.
I would just try it. The Recovery partition does not exist until you repartition using the DAF.exe included and I got the MISC errors too. You were going to loose your current ROM anyway, this just gives you a CHANCE to try and keep it.

I am not sure you can unless your ROM has a Update.ZIP version you can flash over it. This may be a ROM that was not written to support the partition structure we are using. This is why this is not a supported method for keeping your current ROM. Any number of things could stop working when trying to load from NAND, especially one written before the CW method and new partition structure. The steps that it goes through to load a kernel and ROM are going to look for certain things. If they are not found it just will not load. Sorry. Find and update.zip you like the look of and hope that you data partition survives (does not relate to SDcard <2.2). It might, but still may not load properly without a wipe before flashing from within recovery.

There are multiple screens of directories. Scroll down. New dirs are normally at the bottom and I had to go about 5 screens to find mine.

Edit: because clockworkmode just allowed 250mb of build storage
An MD5 error could indicate the backup was corrupted (maybe by an SD card that needs formatting).
Your EDIT is also a good point. If ANY of the backup IMG files end up containing more data than will fit in the new partition structure, they will never restore. The Recovery partition has claimed some of your once available space.

CW is supposed to be used with zip files and you should just wait for devs to provide zips of their NAND Roms...
This is a good point. If you Flash another NAND ROM from windows it will repartition your NAND again and you will have to run the Clockwork DAF.exe again at some point.
