phone : htc hero.
I've started using rom manager for clockwork mod.
However; it seems that every time I want to reboot into clockwork recovery; I need to reflash it.
Rom manager shows that current recovery is clockwork; but if try rebooting into recovery without reflashing; i get stock recovery (which ofc does not support nandroid backup :D)

Any idea why is this happening and how to prevent it?

  • When you boot into recovery using RM you get

You need to flash permanently eg via alpha rev, unrevoked or via adb. I have a desire so what I used may not work for you.
