    ROM Manager is ok... I wouldn't use it to flash anything other than CWM though (I've heard that flashing ROM's using it can cause issues. I have used it to download ROM's on to the phone before, but have always then booted in to CWM and flashed myself. I now don't bother with ROM Manager and just get ROM zips straight from XDA, etc. My advice would be to do the same :)

    Haven't tried CWM Touch, only got the last (non-touch) version on my phone, but I do intend to change that soon. I think that there is a

    Ah - good to hear you went for it... is it as simple as downloading the app and then using it to flash the recovery? I am looking to do it this weekend (as haven't had the spare time at the moment) :)

    Yeah pretty much, just get the 4ext recovery updater and you can choose a version to flash (I went for the last RC; there are some experimental ones that are newer but didn't want to risk anything!) and you're good to go :) I am very impressed with the backup speed (~1 min for the whole ROM backup!)

    fwiw i have used it successfully on cwm, but trying to do a different rom - it nearly bricked my phone and i had to reboot it by installing the adk kit and using command line etc.
