I have been successfully using below procedure for couple of month to get Samsung Galaxy S 4G Clockword recovery fully working.
I followed below steps and I got Samsung Galaxy S 4G clockword recovery's Backup, restore and ROM.zip flashing fully working.
1. Install VKB5 Rom on phone using odin (Download mode on phone) from below link:
2. Download "3e_recovery_installer.zip" from here:
run the 3e Recovery Installer. When finished, close.
3. Flash ClockWorkMod Recovery via ROM Manager from market by selecting "Vibrant" when asked for phone type. Then reboot into recovery.
(You may need to reboot your phone if you get stuck on the ROM Manager "Reboot to Recovery" screen) (Just reboot, then attempt to reboot into recovery again)
At the green recovery select "reinstall packages". The first time will fail, run it once more, and you should now have the green CWM Recovery menu.
4. use Rom Manager to flash SGS4_data_mount_VKB5.zip from below link:
5- Now you should be able to backup, restore and flash Rom.zip files created with Deodexer using clockword recovery Rom Mananger.
6. Videos showing SGS4 Clockword fully working
SGS4 Full Clockwork Backup video

1- data folder 3rd party aplications i.e. none Google included in Rom.zip will not be flashed with rom.zip to the phone but can be installed later.
Note that data 3rd part aplication can though be backed up and restored with Clockword_recovery.
This is not the optimal solution for SGS 4G Clockword Recovery Mod. I have been waiting so long like all others on this forum for the offical ROM Manager Clockword Recovery Mod for SGS 4G. So I started loosing hope, therfore I tried to use others on this forum experiences to come up with a working Clockword Recovery Mod for SGS 4G. again this is working fine for me with a minor issue I already mentioned above in issues. If I find a better working Clockword Recovery Mod for SGS 4G I will switch to it as soon as possible. This one is satifying my needs for Backup, Restore; and flashing ROM.zip and zip files for now.
