    There is no reason not to wipe it first.

    Dalvik will rebuild itself if there is an issue and cache does so as you work.

    Recovery issue: I have had no problems with the new BACKside, but still would like ICS. I have been reading that the AOKP version has working wireless (I am wireless only) so I downloaded it and proceeded to go through the complete wipe and flash. Wiping was no problem, but I was unable to flash the ROM. I am going to try going back to the stock one used for the radio and see if that works.

    [edit] bad md5 sum, my bad. Sorry 'bout that...

    I may just be missing something obvious, but, Jerry, I've been using your recovery since I offered to test it, and I was using the latest version you pm'd me... but, I tried booting into recovery and flashing quattrimus for a change from froyo and it failed me with a status 7 error "could not find build.prop value == thunderc"

    I tried downloading aokp and flashing that amd got the same error. I know I've seen this in the amend scripting on the virgin update, so what's going on?

    I have flashed froyo and Gingerbread successfully with the recovery, but not ICS. Just to make sure my files weren't corrupt, I flashed the iho recovery 4.x.x.x and aokp flashed without problem.
    Thanks.
    quattrimus want to see thunderc in the default.prop. this recovery shows thunderc_VM670. working on fixing this in mine (its a simle fix, but my phone doesnt like it when i unpack then repack stuff)

    That shouldn't be too difficult to fix when building from source. I'll try to have it fixed in V3.3 due out mon-tues.

    I'm working on the automatic backup/restore functions, and realized I'm changing things ROM Manager probably uses. I believe I've made the appropriate changes so that it will fail gracefully with CWM-Green, but I'm not 100%.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned this before, I've edited the OP with the following:[WARN]
    Do Not Use ROM Manager With CWM-Green!!!
    ROM Manager depends on a particular set of functions in CWM
    CWM-Green may have changed some if not all of these functions!
    This Could Brick Your Phone!

    Always backup everything before a rom install.

    Always backup everything before a recovery change, and AGAIN, after a recover install. Why twice? Because this way you have a backup that you know is compatible with your new recovery.

    google undelete or revio they can recover your deleted files. Go back to your previous recovery and restore the backup. Problem solved.

    I did 5 backup/restores last night while testing out the new auto-backup features I'm working on. I had 2 bad md5sum errors related to the sd-ext partition, none on the others. The logs haven't been much help trouble shooting. So I've added a check after the md5sums are generated, to test them against the files. If they don't match, an error will be reported, auto-backup will stop, and the default recovery menu will appear, along with a message telling you what happened, and recommending you re-do the backup manually.

    Note- I have made zero changes to the backup code when accessed from the menus, it's pure ClockworkMod.

    Sorry for the troubles, but thank you for reporting them!

    +1 for LeslieAnn's suggestion for handling backups. I'm a bit less OCD about it. I use TitaniumBackup to backup any recently updated/installed apps, and use ADW's backup/restore feature. I make a backup in recovery once every two weeks to a month. If there are ever any issues, I have a known good backup, and TitaniumBackup's recently saved backups, so there's always a means to recover all apps. Using LeslieAnn's suggestion, you will also have backups of everything else on your phone, such as sms/mms, bookmarks, app settings, etc.

    I have a request if possible it would cool to have the ability to name our backup rather than the date if we prefer... I change roms enough that sometimes I can't remember what one I was on for that. backup custom naming them could help a lot

    You can do that by renaming the folder in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup

    Which is a lot easier than enabling a soft-keyboard and input in recovery.

    However, I may be able to have BacksideUpdater pass a name for the recovery file, no promises.

    Nope. The md5sum has nothing to do with the file name or the folder its contained in.

    OM IHO now has the Backside Updater, and the install is 90% automatic, the only thing that still needs formatted is the sd-ext, the next update should have a script that does that during install.

    Actually it always ruins my backups with the md5 mismatch. Not sure why though

    md5sum are handled differently with image files, the md5sum is embedded into the file name. But you can get the md5sum form the image file and copy/paste the new md5sum in the md5 file the recovery writes, just make sure your use Unix format doing so.

    If you rename backup folders, just make sure you have no spaces or other funny characters. Otherwise you WILL get MD5 errors. If you stick to letters, digits and underscores, it works no problem.

    The question is, why are some people getting bad md5sums?

    Right now, I'm torn between sdcard r/w errors and a race condition.

    I don't think any of your changes did anything (on my modified touch recovery with your changes I haven't had any issues)
    Hope that helps, probably won't..
