    Everyone following the Ultimate Guide has made a backup using Clockworkmod. How often is it wise to do this and does it recover the Kryos to its exact configuration like an image backup on a PC?

    Thanks

    Where does Clockworkmod put the recovery file. I have looked through the SD card and internal storage without finding it.

    It is a full image recovery. In the clockworkmod directory.

    /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<date>/*

    it seems to be the same as if you ran this from a terminal emulator:
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/<mtd_for_boot> of=/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<date>/boot.img bs=4096
    dd if=/dev/<mtd_for_system> of=/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<date>/system.img bs=4096
    etc...
    etc...
    so, the img's it makes are raw images of the mtd's.
