Ok, that got CWM working. I actually am just running 2.3 still so I just went into the current CWM and loaded it as a normal update.zip file from the SDcard which got it updated. It now properly recognizes the backup. Got JB loaded up. Will play around for a while and report back. Oh, and it did pop up with the serial activation as soon as it was connected to wifi... I just hit "activate" on the one it was showing and it seems to have gone through.
