    I've had my INC Rooted and have the old version of ClockworkMOD Recovery since I did it.

    I believe i know how to do it,

    1) Download
    http://koush.tandtgaming.com/recover....5.0.1-inc.img
    2) DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR PHONE
    3) Run unrEVOked v3.0
    4) Under FILE choose CUSTOM RECOVERY
    5) Point to the img file
    6) Plug in your phone

    Is that how you do it?
    What does the new version do that the old one doesnt?
    Is it in my best interest to do it?
    How do I do it with v3.1?

    Yes, that's how you do it with v3.0. I believe v3.1 already has the latest version of ClockworkMod, so no need to download the image separately with that version.

    If you have made a nandroid backup, that is still able to be recovered at any time. I'd take that from your SDcard and also back it up on your computer as well.

    Good question, I've been wondering this as well.

    I searched around and turned up the 2.5.0.0 changelog (could not find 2.5.0.1) Koush posted at XDA:


    • Confirmation on all restores, wipes, and anything that would otherwise change your system.
    • Alphabetically sorted zip and nandroid lists.
    • Support for all ext2/3/4 partitions.
    • Added a back button/power button select for ephumuris!!!!! When recovery starts, press up/down/up/down to turn it on or off. (Basically, scroll over the top/bottom of the menu several times)
    • Better error integration with ROM Manager.
    • Command line nandroid.
    • Backup of Froyo apps2sd!

    ..I guess if none of this matters to you, then no need to upgrade (I have no plans to upgrade).

    can we do this on the phone itself now (without plugging it into a computer and running unrevoked) now that forever is out? i mean if we already have s-off, of course...
