    working kernels are on the first post and one confirmed working ROM. anything else you try you're "on your own" sort of speak. Test and report back. do a back up first!

    I know I've been seeing that all day, tell them how to fix it and they still don't get it right.

    should have backed them up before you upgraded, but you can still do it after

    I am all set I get confused because I was running gingeresteem with Kanaida 1.3 kernel after th VCD update I of course deleted it all bloat now I want to get back at the ROM and kernel I had and that is where I get confused do I need to install it from scratch again or will I just use Rom Manager and install from there or from my sd card?

    I'd wait on using any custom roms till they get everything straightened out. how ever if you want to do that, if you had it backed up, you can just use the backup.

    Ok I'm having a issue. I upgraded to ZVD and I followed the instructions above to root. I put the root zip file on the SD card. I downloaded Rom Manager and tried to install CWM and it fails saying "An Error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands"

    Did I make a wrong turn somewhere? lol

    Mate, you are going to want to run the root from the computer.

    Running LD-ICK and rebooting with no problems. ZVC Roms are working just make sure you backup first and erase after installing ZVD and do a fresh install.

    So CWM backups before D update are of no use now. Is that correct?
