Thumbs up Auto Recovery Mode available - No PC needed.

I added this to my tutorial, but I really think it needs to be brought to everyone's attention in a separate thread. If the mods disagree, I'm sorry and feel free to close this.

***Requirements***
Rooted phone (not unrevoked)
Custom Rom already running that shows the "Superuser Permissions" Icon
******************

Here's the basic instructions -

****AUTO RECOVERY METHOD**** Thanks to ClockworkMod @ XDA

There is now a way to do the recovery from the phone and load roms w/o the pc.
BTW - Using the unrevoked method does not count for rooting.
This only works for people who are rooted and have a custom rom that shows the "Superuser Permissions" icon.

1) Go to the Market and download/install "Rom Manager" by ClockworkMod
There is a free one and a donation one.

2) Open the app and select "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery"

3) Confirm your phone is an HTC EVO

After it installs, you can you can
- Install ROM from SD Card (if you have a rom loaded on your sdcard)
- Download ROM (There's some roms that work w/ the free version, and some you need the pay version of ROM manager)
- Manage and Restore Backups
- Partition SD Card

That's pretty much it. The program does everything for you. If you have any issues, then it's most likely because you didn't have a custom rom w/ the "Superuser Permissions" Icon showing. I've flashed about 20x's using this method and that's the only thing that ever causes an issue.

Re: Auto Recovery Mode available - No PC needed.

does one have to go into rom manager to get it to boot into full recovery each time or once this is done, it will boot into full recovery forever?

Re: Auto Recovery Mode available - No PC needed.

Does this recovery support making/restoring nandroids? Wiping..etc?

EDIT:

I bit the bullet and tried it....
Recovery Supports nandoids, wiping, flashing (duh), partitioning the card ( bring on app2sd!! )

Very similar to anon hero recovery or even the recovery using toasts method.

Cool.

Making a nandroid with it now.. will report back on how everything works...

EDIT 2: Works perfect. Damn..made a nandroid, flashed a .zip off my card..saaaweeet!
Flashing on the go! Props to ClockWorkMod!

Re: Auto Recovery Mode available - No PC needed.

Will this method not work if you used unrevoked but then uninstalled the app and then downgraded by using the two roms and then rooted following the toast method that you outlined?

It should work fine since you are rooted with toasts method.
