Hi have the stock 2.3.5, I flashed clockworkmod and I tried to do a backup of my rom. Clockwork on opening says:
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

and then when I try to do a backup the same errors...
if I select "mounts and storage" I can't manually mount nothing (/system, /cache, /data).
I try to format the 32GB sdcard again and I changed it with another one (2GB). Same results :-(
anyway the problem it isn't the memory card, clockworkmod can see the contents of it. the problem is that can't mount system folders...

You can't backup stock roms using this CWM recovery since it still doesn't supports backing up of rfs partitions. The developer left it so since we believed those who will be using CWM recovery will probably be using any custom rom which is supported for backup.

Yes, you can backup and restore stock roms with latest CWM recovery v5.0.2.6 however, there comes an issue when you try to restore GB backup over cm7 or other custom rom. So, it seems pretty useless.

Also, CWM recovery doesn't work fully with stock roms. Just yesterday someone complained recovery shows error when flashing gingerbread-2.3.6-root.zip file for rooting GB 2.3.6, later when I suggested him to flash it on stock recovery it worked.

So, it's pretty simple and clear custom recovery is good with custom roms only. :)

Unable to backup stock rom, seeking help.

Hello all and thanks Bunnybugs_007 for the tutorial.

I managed to install CWM v 4.0.0.5 but still I cannot backup my stock rom.

I can boot into recovery mode from CWM (4.0.0.5) But I can't backup stock rom.

I am getting mounting errors. (The only partition I can mount is the sdcard partition).

I would also like to ask you if I can update CWM through itself during recovery mode. Is this possible, I mean, CWM flashing itself?

Or do I have to use ODIN to update CWM 4.0.0.5 to CWM 5.0.2.6.?

This file is in a zip format but it does not have any img file inside...

I own a froyo but keep getting erros in mounting.

Thanks a lot.

P.s.: I been looking around for the answer but haven't figured it out yet. Although the question about CWM updating itself might by absurd i am forced to ask it. The info that I have gathered until now is confusing. I have also tried to update CWM through ROM MANAGER. but its GUI doesn't even recognize the CWM that is already installed. And RM doesn't recognize the phone model, when I try to get an appropriate version for it. So it's of no surprise that RM can't backup stock rom either...

Hi Guys!

I flashed Clockworkmod recovery in my Galaxy Mini. I have Rom Manager, but when I try to partition my sd card, it says "You must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed before continuing! Install blah blah blah!"

The ClockworkMod is working in recovery mode too, but I don't know what exactly is the problem!

Help Guys! I desperately want to increase my internal memory :(

    Well, as far as my experience goes, it does.

    But, found a version that's specially made for froyo, so I'll add it to the post.
