Does this recovery work?

I have flashed the same recovery via rom manager and it just comes up with a black screen

Koush has said he will fix it in the next few days

How does CWM save/store its ROMS, and where does it load from? With the Xoom, without a working SD, it was not possible to use CWM.

If the onboard storage is all one volume with the OS, is the storage included in the backup, and how is the images written if the storage is needed to hold the ROMS to be flashed?

I'd like to know this too. I found something that would back it up, but you need root first. I'd like to be able to back it up before rooting if possible.

Rooting shouldn't affect the Recovery partition so you should be able to safely root then backup your stock recovery before installing ClockworkMod Recovery?

Or if someone backs up theirs you could download it and keep a copy of it?

I have just installed Rom Manager and I get a FC but it seems to have installed the CWM OK. It successfully rebooted to CWM and I could navigate around but I didn't try flashing anything yet.

The issue may be more with Rom Manager than the recovery

Installed CWM just fine, however when i try to do a nandroid backup it says "Can't mount backup path" or when i try to browse for a zip to install "Can't mount /sdcard/".

My first guess is that it is because i encrypted my phone, but i believe it works on my Xoom, which is encrypted as well... (I will check this later when i have my Xoom nearby)

    can any1 make it a flashable zip

    Attached.

    Note this is an alpha build. I'm sure koush has not vetted out all the bugs yet...

    Has anyone made a custom Recovery so we don't have to go through all those annoying No's on the screen?

    It's already built-in. Create /sdcard/clockworkmod/.one_confirm like this:

    adb shell
    touch /sdcard/clockworkmod/.one_confirm

    This will give you only one "No" choice on top of the action choice.

    Protip: Test something before you post it. This does NOT work at the time of writing.
