    I am sick of having the sdcard/0/0/0/0 problem, so I want to install the latest version of TWRP, which reportedly fixes this issue. I found the download and instructions here:

    TeamWin Projects - TWRP 2.3 - Galaxy Nexus CDMA (Verizon) | TeamWin

    Sorry for the noob question, but I don't understand the instructions. I downloaded the file to my phone and saved it in multiple locations (didn't specify where to save it), booted into FastBoot mode, and plugged it into my computer. Now I'm just stuck at the FastBoot screen with options to Start, Restart Bootloader, Recovery Mode, and Power Off. Where is this command line supposed to be, on the phone or on my PC? Also, the command line commands that are given don't make sense to me since they do not refer to a specific filepath. Can anyone walk me through this? Thanks so much!

    I tried that as well and couldn't find the file. There wasn't a specific folder for customer recoveries that I found, so I went into the dev/Teamwin folder. Nothing there either. Can anyone assist?

    EDIT: I searched for TWRP and found several recovery files to install, but none with "toro" in the name.

    EDIT #2: Never mind, I searched TWRP Toro and then it came up just fine. I guess I just got impatient and gave up too quickly, thanks for the help.

    just download the goomanager app, hit the menu button, click "install open recovery script", done!

    Or you could've opened a command prompt in the platform tools folder or whatever folder it actually is, put your phone in fast boot mode, and typed " fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.3.2.1-toro.img" . I just flashed it about a week ago.

    Ok...so I went and installed TWRP....Tried to boot into recovery with Clockwork Mod to see is I could get to CWrecovery. Comes up TWRP...... When I try to restore I get a blank folder.......do I need to mount anything, or how to I point it to my nandroids, which I can find in root file mgr.....I can also can get to the folders using the install button of TWRP which goes to the sd card , is that the same if I want to install a nandroid, should I need too.? It looks like TWRP has a root explorer file manger built into it which is the same way you could browse around CWM. That make sense?

    thanks

    nandroids from cwm are not compatible in twrp. make a backup as soon as you install twrp so you have a backup ready.

    Yea...I did that first thing. So If I uninstall TWRP, I should be able to use my CWM nandroid...? The only reason I would want that is the image of my phone before rooting. Other than that yesterdays image would be fine!

    thanks

    As tdevaughn posted, nandroids created with CWRecovery will not be compatible nor found once you flash TWRecovery and vise-versa.

    So if I understand correctly your situation, restore back and/or flash CWRecovery and your CWRecovery nandroids will become available to you. The same will be true if you go the other way; i.e. after a flash of TWRecovery any nandroids created with that custom recovery will only be available and usable with TWRecovery.

    Clear as mud? Maybe not at first, but if you follow a linear logic to these things, then the light turns on.

    good luck

    I guess the simple phrase would be that CWM and TWRP are not cross compatible!!
    works for me. TWRP is nice, but it looks to easy to hit the wrong tab if you get in a hurry or don't pay attention. Specially the Wipe ones!!

    Guess I'll just leave them both installed for a while.....no harm no foul

    Everyone should install the latest CWM or TWRP and make a backup BEFORE updating to a 4.2 rom. :D

    Also TWRP 2.3.3.0 is out.
