ROM Manager - Backup won't workSupport

    I have installed ROM Manager on my Samsung Captivate (Model: SGH-I897), which is running:

    Firmware: 2.1-update1
    Baseband version: I87UCJH7
    Kernel: 2.6.29 jeteak.lee@sep-11 #2
    Build: ECLAIR.UCJH7

    When I select BACKUP CURRENT ROM and specify a name for the backup file, ROM Manager reboots into recovery mode and enters manual mode (after running: "update media, please wait ... update media, finished.; # MANUAL MODE #; -- Appling Muti-CSC ... Installing Muti-CSC") and presents the standard menue options (reboot system now; reinstall packages; delete all user data; delete cache data) without creating a backup file.

    How do I get ROM Manager to make a full ROM backup? I'm sure I am missing a step, but I can't find information.

  2. I have the same phone with stock ROM. Never been flashed.

    I lost track of how many times I tried the well-known method (usually mentioned by posters using a non-stock ROM) which also only brought me only to the stock boot menu.

    What worked in my case was installing the mod, then (eventually) 'Reboot into Recovery' which brought me to the long sought ClockWorkRecovery Mod tertiary boot menu. From there I performed a Backup which was conveniently auto-placed into a datetime-named folder.

    Did you flash clockworkmod recovery in rom manager?

    I had a problem making a Nandroid backup (is that what you're trying to do?), my phone hung, for quite awhile, so I pulled the battery (because nothing was working, it was just sitting on the menu). The phone rebooted into Clockwork Recovery and made the backup. I DO NOT recommend this method.

    I'm stuck at the same spot.

    Rom Manager installed.
    Clockwork installed.

    Click on "Backup Current ROM" in ROM Manager and phone reboots. If I click on reinstall packages nothing happens and the phone boots up normally. I'm not sure what I've done wrong.

    Ah, I think I see. I *have* to flash Clockwork every time before clicking "backup current ROM". Without doing the flash it has nothing to load on reinstall packages. Backup in progress!

    I'm in the same place with the same phone, specs, ROM Manager, etc. Any ideas?:confused:

    I am runnning Darky's 8.1 with SpeedMod Kernel and ROM Manager. When I go to ROM Manager and Scroll down to Backup ROM I get a Popup screen to Name my Backup and then after I hit OK Phone reboot and automatically starts backup and when it done it reboots phone.

    I'm on the same boat, captivate, rooted, latest version of ROM Manager but boots into standard recovery menu when using the "Backup Current ROM" option.

    Did you change either the kernel or modem since you did your backup? They must be the same as what was backed up.

    I have a Motorola photon 4g and downloaded rom manager months ago. My phone was not supported in the flash until a few days ago. I made the mistake of buying the Pro version, still no support, no way to ask a question. Everyone seems to be having the same problems that I am.

    1 Does anyone know how to get to them with a question, proposing they will answer?
    2 Does anyone know a similar product that will work?
