Although a great app for supported phones, ROM manager has been an outright disaster for the Transformer Tf101 for recovery in particular.
After seeing tens of threads involving issues with flashing using ROM manager, and no warning thread, I decided to post this.
If you're rooting for the first time, or upgrading recovery Do Not Use ROM Manager. It simply does not work properly for the Tf101. This may change in the future if the dev adds official support, but for now, please avoid like the plague.
Install recovery with this instead: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...very+installer
Gnufabio did a good job making a working recovery installer.
After you flash this, if you want to upgrade your CWM go to the development forum and flash the new CWM .zip using the version installed by recovery installer. Hope this saves some people some trouble, Thanks!

Well, it is encouragement of laziness, but it actually does work well on supported devices, to be fair. Just not for the TF101, so stay away! D:

I got it working well on a friends GS2, but just UGH otherwise. Killed a vortex with it that was very painful to get back.

Off to uninstall it. I found it useless after I rooted my tf101, but I never read that it didn't work....thought I was going to make life easier.....wrong guess

Yep..again this was one of the orphan apps I had installed on my OG Evo years ago and forgot about. Used it once to install AmonRa recovery on the Evo and never used it again. One night at work away from my computer I decided I needed a new recovery on my Transformer and made the mistake of trying ROM Manager which equaled disaster. Long story short, took a while to get back to square one. If you have it on your transformer, uninstall! Good thread OP should be a stickie!
