    So I just rooted my wifes old Incredible that she doesn't use with Unrevoked 3 and everything went fine. I downloaded the latest rom manager so I could update the clockworkmod recovery. I'm going to be getting a new phone friday and I have to return my phone. I want to flash a nandroid of my phone onto the old incredible so that she can use it over wifi for her youtube and facebook stuff. The problem is that even though I installed the latest Rom Manager, it says I don't have clockworkmod recovery installed. It is installed. Its an old old version of it but its there. When I click on "Flash Clockworkmod Recovery" in rom manager, it looks like its going to download for maybe one second then the download bar goes away. I tried installing an old version of Rom Manger to flash clockwork with that, but same thing. It doesn't even want to try and ask me what phone I'm using. Just for the hell of it, I went into my Incredibles rom manager and click on "Flash Clockworkmod Recovery" and same thing. No message that I have the latest version or attempt to download or verify phone. Is there a manual way to download and flash the latest clockworkmod recovery? Is there something I'm missing? Thanks!

    Cwm site seems to be down. I can go to the site but can't access the cwm files from the rom manager tab like usual. Well there's a couple things you can do, the easiest of which is wait and see if Koush gets his server back up and running. :D

    If not, you can get the newest version for the Inc (pretty sure its the newest and final) from here:
    Recoveries | PvilleComp's

    You can either flash via hboot (not recovery) by renaming the file to PB31IMG and placing the zip onto the root of a FAT32 formatted SD card. Or you can extract the img file out of the zip and flash via fastboot if you are familiar with that method and have the sdk setup on your PC. In that event the command would be:

    fastboot flash recovery <recoverynamehere>.img

    (Minus the < > symbols of course)
