if you disable the progress bar and information the backup will be done in 1-2 minutes.

you need to disable it from ROM Manager.

It take that long? It takes hardly a minute on mine to make a complete nandroid! Maybe that's because I use a class 10 sd.

Nah. That fast just means you don't have enough apps. :D

yeah ...

i restore all the apps i have through TB even if i dont use them

so the size of backup is about 900mb to 1.2 gb about 120-150 apps most of it games

hey guys, I have CWM Recovery v6.0.0.0 fully working in my device!

Here's a link for download: http://jenkins.cyano...ve/recovery.img

It's only image, flash it through fastboot or wait for someone to make a flashable .zip, I'm not able to do that.

Not my work, building it from http://builder.clockworkmod.com/ and all credits goes to Koush

Can anyone make a flashable zip of this?

You can install recovery through Terminal Emulator.

Just put recovery.img on sdcard and type:

su

flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

I'll test it, wait a while

EDIT// Touch not working!

I have a flashable .zip of v6.0.0.0: http://www.mediafire...d16kjvkwrm9fnp1

Uploaded by me, I used KonstaT's recovery update in thread somewhere here at Modaco and just replace recovery.img inside the .zip, so it's unsigned, but working

EDIT2// In v6.0.0.0 it shows me some error messages in recovery (something with low space - it's probably trying to save a .log file into /cache partition), maybe it's because of size of my /cache partition (2 MB), so it cannot save logs there

Q: Ist that .zip install CWM 6.0 beta for usage with reboot in CWM 5.x ( i have installed) recovery mode and then install that .zip?

Or must i use other way (like TPT install) ?

THANKS for answering that maybe dump question.

Thanks for the CWM installable .zip!

Is is possible to change the very, very small font size a bit bigger in next builds?

I think it would be OK on low res 640x400 screens but its very small on Blade 800xyyy res.

Will give it a try ;)

Backup (maybe restore, too) should be faster and backup takes less space (for example - with 5.x.x.x my backup took about 900 MB, now it takes ~ 450 MB)

Good to know....

Found out why the backups are smaller now

Thats cause they are split into two directories now i.e Blobs and backups...

Read this for more info..

TL;DR:

Don't delete /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs

I've gotten a few questions about how this works, so I figured I'd make a post on it.

Basically, here's what happens:

The files being backed up are hashed (sha256, not that it matters). Then it checks for a file with the name of the hash in

/sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs

So, if the hash of the file was c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed, it looks for /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs/c5273884b90d490134e7737b29a65405cea0f7bb786ca82c6337ceb24de6f5ed

If the hash file is found, it continues on to the next file. Otherwise, it copies the file to the blobs directory with the file name being the hash.

ROMs and user data, for the most part, do not change too much between builds and backups. So, your APKs, system files, etc, are generally only stored once. This saves a ton of space. Especially between incremental backups.

Some of you may be thinking "well, how do I delete a backup?".

First, never delete the blobs directory. This would actually delete all your backups by rendering them unusable.

Simply delete the usual backup directory, and the next time you run a backup, all the unused hash files will be automatically delete (a process known as garbage collection). The recovery will show "Freeing space..." while this is happening.

So... has anyone actually tried actually restoring a backup from v6? Cause it doesn't work...

I took 2 backups, to test the speed boost it provides to the second. I've tried restoring both multiple times and the phone just hangs on the green droid. My backup made in v5 restores fine.
