Happy Trying to Flash ROM

I have a Samsung Acclaim, and am new to customizing my phone, although I am very computer savvy so I can understand the lingo so to speak. I am trying to flash the ROM of my Acclaim. Phone has already been rooted, and works alot better since using Root Uninstall to remove some programs. I was trying to give UberAcclaim ROM a go, and was not successful. It would start to open the file and not verify the signature.

In a nutshell, I need to know how to install a custom recovery. For that particular ROM, it recommends ClockWorkMod Recovery, however after downloading ROM Manager, it says it's unavailable for the Acclaim. I read where the developer said theres a different CWM Recov, but the link was dead to get to it. I have seen several guides saying what you need to install, but not HOW to install it, or where to install it.

Any help is greatly appreciated, be it an explanation, or a link that can help.

Welcome to AF KSHolloman. I am no expert on your phone but I have a question, is your bootloader unlocked? If it is and we can get a recovery that works on the Acclaim we can fastboot the recovery on to your phone very easily.

Hey there and welcome to Android Forums.

Firstly let's stay away from rom manager, it's too buggy to use as an app.

http://iprouteth0.blogspot.com/2012/12/rootcustom-recovery-on-sch-r880-acclaim.html

Follow that link and it will guide you through on how to load cwm onto your device. Ignore the first bit which is the rooting procedure.

Please follow up if this works for you or not
