    When doing the ClockworkMod recovery, where does the backup image get stored - on the PC or on the SD card?

    If it's the SD card, what's the minimum size needed for the file?

    Thanks

    I'll have to double check but I backed mine up to a 64mb sd card. With that being said...not too much space

    /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<date_and_time>/

    it's multiple files. approx 391MB on my kyros (rooted with Gapps)

    it's the same thing using dd to copy the boot, system, data, and cache partitions of the mtd.
