I installed this recovery successfully, but I'm still getting the screen ripple effect. Never mind that, but whenever I try to install something I get a "can't access SD partition" or something along those lines.

Hello,

I had flashed this recovery and yesterday I saw Ripple efect on screen but today no rippling , may be because my battery charge is more than 50% today.

I made one backup but not able to pull it to my PC . Geting error:
remote object '/data/media/0/clockworkmod/backup/1970-02-20.00.19.44_LXB22.46-16' does not exist

Please suggest something.
