I seem to get a black screen when I select any of the options from the Recovery menu. I have an HTC Desire with 0.80 HBoot and stock rooted ROM.

You're turning off the display :)
The new recovery uses the track"ball" to select a menu item.

does this recovery version also fixes the wipe-bug, which has been fixed with the ahmgsk_mod-version?

This is for Desire. Maybe something different with Legend. (i see now that it should support Legend and Desire)

I know. I was confused as the trackpad up/down didn't work for me at the start (slightly works now) and the vol up/down did. So I automatically thought the power button would be the select button. I was wrong, but it's sorted now. Thanks for this great work Paul!

"The same technique also applies to the Legend."

Paul, would the checksum stop the backup from working? or should it be ok to reflash?
