NEW: I have created a script to easily update to the latest version of my recovery.
- Download this file ----> updater.sh (updated to fix typo)
- Put it on your sdcard
- open adb and type:
su sh /mnt/sdcard/updater.sh skyrocket
- starting in v14.2.1 it will automatically start installing and reboot when its done
Note: If your sdcard is not mounted on /mnt/sdcard then open the script and change the line that says path=/mnt/sdcard/sk8sUpdater to match your mount point. i.e. ICS users may have to change it to say path=/mnt/emmc/sk8sUpdater
Looking through the cwm code more in depth i have noticed MANY flaws with the code for new(er) phones that use /emmc instead of /sdcard as the main storage. i have now fixed those flaws in v9+.
Here is a video of how it works: --------> YOUTUBE LINK

This is what the new dedupe format does. This is a direct quote from the original creator of clockworkmod:
ClockworkMod Recovery now deduplicates files between builds. This results in way smaller backups. Don't delete /sdcard(or emmc)/clockworkmod/blobs Overview I've gotten a few questions about how this works, so I figured I'd make a post on it. Basically, here's what happens: The files being backed up are hashed (sha256, not that it matters). Then it checks for a file with the name of the hash in /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs So, if the hash of the file was c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed, it looks for /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs/c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed If the hash file is found, it continues on to the next file. Otherwise, it copies the file to the blobs directory with the file name being the hash. ROMs and user data, for the most part, do not change too much between builds and backups. So, your APKs, system files, etc, are generally only stored once. This saves a ton of space. Especially between incremental backups. Some of you may be thinking "well, how do I delete a backup?". First, never delete the blobs directory. This would actually delete all your backups by rendering them unusable. Simply delete the usual backup directory, and the next time you run a backup, all the unused hash files will be automatically delete (a process known as garbage collection). The recovery will show "Freeing space..." while this is happening.
