    I've installed ROM Manager and I'm trying to use it to backup my current ROM and Flash to another (already download Damage Control). I'm currently running Fresh and want to try Damage Control. Anyway everytime I select the "backup current rom" option it prompts me for the file name and just boot to recovery mode and does nothing. Is there something I need to do to allow ROM Manager to work? I'm I fully rooted if i'm running Fresh? Can someone post instructions on how to flash between ROMs using Rom Manager?

    Bingo.
    That is required, it is the first option when you start up ROM Manager to flash Clockwork Recovery over whatever you have.

    Like the previous ppl have said in this thread, you need to at least upgrade to the version of ClockworkMod Recovery that is provided in ROM Manager.

    To do this:

    1. Start up ROM manager
    2. Hit the first link at the top, "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery"
    3. If done properly, it should say something along the lines of:

    Current recovery: ClockworkMod 2.0.1.3
    Latest recovery: ClockworkMod 2.0.1.3

    directly underneath the option you just selected. Numbers may be diff depending on if ClockworkMod or ROM manager has been updated.

    After you've done all this, then try your previous backup procedure again.

    2.0.1.3 is the newest other than the 2.0.1.4 experimental.
