    ran into a little problem yesterday when i was going back and forth between roms. i usually wipe before restoring nandroid but this time i ran into the error nandroid adb thing. i was able to get into rom manager and flash clockwork recovery and then flash back RA_v1.6.2 to restore my nandroid but i was wondering whats the BEST and NEWEST recovery image out right now? i dont want to run into this problem again. i thought i broke my phone! lucky i searched on here and someone said to reinstall the recovery image which is what i did and it worked!

    I'm using ClockworkMod 2.5.0.1, never had any troubles with nandroids and the such...

    BTW, read Joe Hunni's nandroid thread, he says not to wipe when restoring a nandroid:) Maybe that could have been the problem

    I don't know about the newest version but Amon Ra recoveries are generally heralded as the best ones. Also, as long as you don't rename your nandroids or swap recoveries after making a nandroid backup (you must use the same RA to restore them) you should be fine.
