    I have the samsung Galaxy S 4g.
    Just got it today actually.
    Im actually surprised that the internal memory is so terrible. but anyways.
    I succesfully rooted my phone, which was rather satisfying.

    I went on to download Rom manager (premium as a matter of fact)
    Titanium Back up and Etc.

    Anyways
    I can not get Rom manager to back up correctly.
    The order in which I do things is as follows:
    1. tap Flash ClockworkMod Recovery
    2. Confirm Phone Model - Samsung Galaxy S 4g (is what i choose)
    3. "Successfully downloaded Clockworkmod recovery! (is what I see. I then tap "ok")
    (Now i think im ready to back up my phone, yay).
    4.Then tap Backup Current Rom
    5. Choose a name(I leave it as the current date)
    6. Tap Ok

    Instead of getting the results I think are correct, which is rebooting to the clockwork mod or w/e, I get booted to the stock reboot. Which resembles this.

    Reboot System now
    reinstall packages
    delete all user data
    delete cache data

    Can anyone help? I'm trying to install a better ROM and I rly want to do a backup first. Thanks

    Because of the signature verification on 3E recovery, and Samsung's weird partitioning and boot method, ROM Manager doesn't work well on any Galaxy S phone. Here's how to install clockworkmod.

    That's for Froyo only.
    What about Gingerbread? I'm on 2.3.6 stock from Tmobile.

    ROM Manager does not work on SGS4G. You'll brick your device if you use it. If you want to root/install custom ROM's on your device, check out SGS4G threads on XDA.

    Yeah I have the same phone and it freezes up every day several times. I'm thinking of cancelling my T-Mobil account.

    Gingerbread is way easier to install recovery on. If you're rooted, download an app called SGS kernel flasher. Once youve done that download the pre-rooted KJ6 kernel from here

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1513287

    Then, with the SGS kernel flasher app, select the file you downloaded and push flash kernel. It will then reboot and you will have ClockworkMod 5 and busy box

    What firmware are you running? If you're running 2.3.x then use the steps i gave to the above person, if not then you should update to KJ6 using Kies mini. As someone else said, Rom manager will seriously brick your phone, as Samsung phones are set up weirdly.
