Default Clockwork-mod Recovery MD5 mismatch! error FIX

For anyone who has had the Clockwork-mod Recovery MD5 mismatch! error.

Update: thanks Exca

If you have androids SDK ( ADB installed) try this easer method by Exca

This is a much easier way:

adb shell
# cd /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2010-06-29.20.22.53
# rm nandroid.md5
# md5sum *img > nandroid.md5

usually does the trick

DO NOT renamed your backup with spaces Thanks ltredbeard and those who verified

This is what I did to fix mine and get my backup working again after getting MD5 mismatch! error
I was trying to restore my backup after trying another Rom.

Wished I'd have seen this before deleting 4 different backups. Can you tell me what exactly this zip does ?

Using these methods fixed my error! Thanks.

BTW: I name my backup and it contained a space. I ended up having to rename the backup w/o the space. Ex. From - Backup Froyo To - BackupFroyo

After follow this easy procedure on my ASUS TransformerTF101, here's the result in my clockworkmod recovery (v3.0.2.8):
1. Checking MD5 sums is OK
2. Restoring system is OK
3. Restoring data is not OK, there is message: ".android_secure.img not found. Skipping restore /sdcard/.android secure.
4. Restoring cache is OK
5. Backup complete

Then after reboot, all my data on that backup file is not restore as expected. I am afraid my data is gone :(
Can someone help me?

I'm guessing by following the zip instructions, you deleted the ".android_secure.img" since it says it's safe to delete if there's a nandroid.md5 file already. But that .md5 file does not match the original. So the backup was likely messed up when trying to fix it with the .zip instructions.

I believe the easier method in post #4 should be tried first on a fresh backup dir.

For future reference to all. What I do all the time is when I make a backup, I hook the tablet up to my pc and back the backup to my PC. This saved me from having to do those steps. I just rewrote the backup on my sdcard and it worked.
