Default Cwm warning!!! Don't flash it!!


I don't believe the new cwm is quite ready for prime time. I don't know about other devices but it didn't work on mine. I did a nandroid and tried to restore it. There was an error and I bricked at the boot logo. Fortunately, I had a nandroid made through the previous cwm. I flashed the old (working) recovery through fastboot and am restoring the nandroid now. No muss, no fuss.

I am concerned about less savvy root users, so I am putting out this warning. Don't flash the new cwm recovery on the gnex. My experience shows that it just doesn't work.
