Final version of ClockworkMod GUI

You can do backup from recovery in any case - no matter if your phone is rooted or not. It makes no difference, because while

in recovery, no system is loaded. Root is just system related (implies if you have full control over running system applications and filesystem).

What you need to do is to boot ClockworkMod GUI instead of flashing it.

Just use:

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot boot recovery.bin

Then you can backup you original recovery partition.

Hope this helps.

Ok, I'm starting to get it I think.

On the rooting issue:

you flashed superboot, got the Wifi error, reflashed stock boot, and retained root permissions?

Is that reasonable (I mean, is there a reason for this)?

Thank you for clearing up things!

My understaning is:

1) By flashing the superboot, the Superuser will be installed/activated in the system partition during reboot

2) By refleshing the stock boot, system partition remains untouched so root installed by superboot image will remain as is
