"An error occured while flashing your recovery." (ClockworkMod)
My ClockworkMod Recovery was out of date according to ROM Manager (Premium) but when I went to update it I got this error message. I'm currently running AOKP but would like to flash Paranoid Android. I understand that when flashing a new ROM you should make sure your recovery is up to date. 1) How important is that really? And 2) What is the best/easiest way to update or replace my recovery?
For background: I unlocked and rooted my GSM Galaxy Nexus with WugFresh's Nexus ToolKit which installs Team Win Recovery Project. ROM Manager gives you the option to flash to an alternate recovery but even after selecting TWRP, booting to recovery brings me to ClockworkMod Recovery.
A possible solution I've been mulling over would be using the Nexus ToolKit to flash back to stock while retaining unlock+root (I believe this is an option). I can then reinstall either TWRP or ClockwordMod Recovery and flash a new ROM from there. My only concern there is that Windows constantly wants to install its own drivers for my phone no matter how I try to disable automatically downloading device drivers. When I first used the Nexus ToolKit, I had to use my work computer at my old job to get around this.
If all this seems like a roundabout way of doing it, it is because it my understanding that the only other way to flash a custom recovery would be through adb manually. I have never done this before and it seems daunting. On top of that, I think I would run into the same problem with Windows automatically installing drivers for the phone. 1) Am I wrong about adb being the only other way? And 2) Are the drivers actually a big deal?
Thanks in advance
