Default How to Flash Clockworkmod Recovery 3.0 easily from your phone

I found a really easy way to flash the new recovery. My fastboot didnt seem to have an option for a terminal so I thought of this genius yet n00b way. Here are the steps.

Steps:

1. Install clockworkmod from market.

2. Flash Clockworkmod recovery from Rom Manager.

3. Navigate to clockworkmod/download/koush.tandtgaming.com/recoveries (or where ever your recovery was downloaded to. This can be done in File Manager, Astro, or Androzip.

4. Mine was "recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.3-vision.img". Rename it to "recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.3-visionXXX.img" or something obviously different.

5. Download clockworkmod 3.0 from hereish:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=893933

6. Move your recovery.img to clockworkmod/download/koush.tandtgaming.com/recoveries and name it recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.3-vision.img

7. Go into ROM Manager and Flash Clockworkmod recovery, it will say its still 2.5.1.3 when your done. Reboot into recovery and you'll be welcomed by a new orange 3.0



More than likely i could have done it much easier but it just kinda clicked and i didn't wanna bother with fastboot as it feels clunky on the G2.

not really a "hack" per se but it tricks ROM manager into flashing a newer clockwork while still thinking it is the same old one. i thought about doing this the other day but never got around to it so great job on this

Nicely done, flashed it via your method.

You may want to correct the typo you have in there as I first tried to copy and paste your file names. It's clockwork, not cockwork.

How does it feel clunky? fastboot flash recovery recovery.img is a lot easier than this method.
