    go into recovery and try and wipe dalvik cache and cache.

    if that does not work in amon ra go to advanced and then select fix uid mismatches or clockwork mod under advanced select fix permissions.

    what did you wipe?

    try and do a full wipe(dalvik cache, cache, and data) plus vr superwipe and reflash the rom.

    I think i screwed the pooch.. when i initially went into recovery before installing the mikg rom it didnt have the same options as the evo i did last night. i cant tell you what specifically was different but it was.. should i just start at step 1 for dummies and start over?

    when you flash a rom you need to do minimum of data, dalvik cache and cache. some do everything except for the sd card. it does not hurt to do it, but that is up to you. i only do data, dalvik cache and cache and then the vr superwipe when i flash a rom.

    you might want to switch recoveries. follow the guide for instructions on how to switch to amon ra.

    When i go into recovery my options are:
    reboot system now
    apply update from sdcard
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    install zip from sdcard
    backup and restore
    mounts and storage
    advanced
    power off
    go back

    Does this look right.. should i just start over? if so, should i choose factory reset in recovery? thanks so much for your help!

    you are using clockwork mod recovery. i think if i remember right we had you switch recoveries to amon ra.

    you can flash mikg with clockwork mod if you want. dalvik cache is found in the advanced option and you will need to wipe the cache partitions as well as wipe data/factory reset then select install zip and flash mikg.

    but i would really recommend that you switch to amon ra.

    pretty much anything on the card is safe to remove. but i would for sure remove the PC36IMG file. i would keep 2 or 3 nandroid backups and that is it. they do take up a lot of room. and also once you flash mikg or any other rom then you can remove the file as well.
