    I have Xionia custom recovery installed right now. Is it okay to flash the clockworkmod recovery from RomManager?

    And if I do flash the clockworkmod recovery does that make my Xionia backups worthless?

    Yes, it does:

    And to answer the OP, yes, it will make any nandroid backups from another recovery worthless.

    The Clockwork recovery in ROM Manager is different from the Xionia Clockwork recovery done by Zefie (which may have been based on the other one). It was modified to work on our phones by Zefie. Why would you think a generic version would be preferable to one customized to run on our phone. As far as I know ROM Manager will brick your Optimus S since it is not intended to work on it.

    It will only brick your phone if you do something...erm...not smart. The only thing ROM Manager is good for (for our devices) is flashing the Optimus V ClockworkMod Recovery and flashing aospCMod, both of which work just fine. Try anything else and yes, you will brick your device.

    Yes, currently. I've gone back between it and Thunder-C numerous times in the past with no issue. Just follow the directions in that thread and you should definitely NOT brick your phone. It has to be the Xionia one though.

    You are talking about a different recovery. This was a discussion about RomManager. Your still talking about xionias cwma.

    Man you're like the little dude with the halo on my right shoulder who's rational and knows what's going on....and I am the devil who's really close to doing stupid stuff without giving a thought.

    I did not know it wasn't meant to work with our phone, but it seemed logical to ask before I switched to a recovery system that has not been mentioned in this area of the forum before. (usually its thunderc or xionia) I will just uninstall it, and use xionia to flash the roms I would like to putz around with,

    Using a ClockworkMod Recovery for the Optimus V should be fine, as stated by drew above. The kernel is the same for our phone, and the same with the partition table. The only difference is APN's and (possibly) a keylayout.

    There is only one thing I would be careful putting on your phone: ROMS and recoveries... Two Things! Only two things to be careful about: ROMS, recoveries, and kernels... Three Things! Only three things can really mess up your phone: ROMS, recoveries, kernels, and Over-the-Air Updates! Four things! Only four things...

    You get the idea. It's definitely wise to check with the hive mind before doing anything to the underlying layers of your phone's system. The most critical is the recovery and the...

    sometimes you just have to ignore that little halo wearing dude and just let em HANG. The CWM recovery
    in Rom Manager for the Optimus One or Optimus V is compatible with all Optimus variants.

    Just remember to use the camera button to select, not the menu button.

    What I understand from this is the majority of us will continue to use Xionia or ThunderC. Is that correct?

    Rom manager is working for our phones, but I suggest keeping Xionia for a recovery. I just used Rom manager and I lost my recovery, and had to flash it back.

    Xionia works best with Gingerbread and Froyo mods.
