    I have finally run into my first issue with rom manager. I think my recovery is broken, i tried almost all the options it says to do if you have a broken recovery such as clear download cache, install past recoveries, install alternative recoveries, etc, nothing seems to be working. I also have a constant spinning circle within rom manager as if its trying to comlete some task. I would really like to flash a new rom but im stuck , any help would be very much appreciated.I guess i got so used to rom manager doing everything for me that i need to learn alternatives.

    under rom manager settings do you have erase recovery before flashing checked? If not I would check that then try again. Sometimes it takes flashing different recoveries a number of times before you can get it to stick and after that it will be fine for awhile. If that doesnt work I can post up instructions for flashing manually with terminal.

    Yes i had that checked in settings. but your right 3rd time was the charm, it seems i can back up my rom now, thank you so much. Should i stick with this older recovery which was only like 4 prior to current recovery? or get the newest one after this?

    Flashing the newest one now shouldnt be a problem. Its an issue with the flashing process and not the recovery itself.
