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

You need this is a zip to simply move a file to your SD card? Wow, that IS lazy. lol

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.
