I installed ClockworkMod's ROM Manager v.4.8.0.6 which includes ClockworkMod (CWM) to backup stock ROM on brand new Samsung i9000m.

Problem #1 with ROM Manager
CWM won't install because it does not have verified signatures which my device requires to install it.

I removed ROM Manager and re-booted.

I installed ROM Toolbox.

Problem #2 with ROM Manager
With ROM Toolbox, when trying to backup ROM I get the message:
ROM Manager blocked other apps from creating backups in recovery unless ROM Manager Premium is installed.

Once you install ROM Manager Premium you can use ROM Toolbox to backup your ROM.

From stock Recovery I wiped and restored, tried all over again with same results. I can reboot into stock recovery, but I cannot backup my ROM.

This is bad. No application should hook into and lock-up your device in such a way that you cannot get it properly recovered, or prevent another application from properly backing-up your ROM.

I have sent emails and tweets to the developer but have yet to receive a reply.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I cannot proceed until I get a full backup, which from the message I am getting, ROM Manager is preventing from doing unless I send money.

Hello there guys

I have the same problem like catalyst2012. I have searched the net, even bought clockworkmode rom manager premium but then my android (X8) isnt supported so i am in a bad situation. I have also tried to manually install rom manager (and its CWD recovery) but no result. Any help will be kindly appreciated. Thanks.
