Restore a backup starting with stock recovery?

    Summary: I have a Droid, and just inherited a second droid with a busted digitizer. I want to take the SD card out of my own droid and somehow restore my latest backup to the second one.

    The problem is, it's running stock recovery. I can't just boot into the stock ROM and install ROM Manager, because the digitizer is broken and I can't even activate (or bypass activation) of the phone.

    If I can somehow flash clockwork (or any recover besides stock) and do a recovery, I can setup my current phone to not have a lock screen, and to put all the apps I need on the desktop, which would let me use the Dpad to launch them.

    So can anybody think of a way to flash clockwork or a restore a backup using maybe update.zip or something? THe only way I know how is through ROM Manager.

    THanks!

    You would have to root using rsd lite 4.6 if you want to flash an alternate recovery without using ROM Manager.

    Any attempt to flash a custom rom or recovery from stock recovery will result in a signature error.
