    i KNOW my phones rooted, ive applied the update and ive been doing root things for quite awhile.
    However, when I go into rom manager, download a rom, and install it, it brings me to the normal recovery menu, the blue one with only 4 options.
    I reapplied the update.zip and still nothing

    When I try to reflash the clockwork it says...
    An error occured when attempting to run priveleged permissions

    im not on any custom rom...just stock 2.1

    Check your SuperUser app to see if ROM Mgr has the appropriate permissions - if not uninstall and reinstall it and then when it asks for permissions, allow and always allow.

    Im having trouble installing kernals for the new froyo update. I can't seem to get a change in clock speed no matter which kernal i try, im stuck at 800. My wifi is still broken as well, and now i can't reboot into the manuel clockwork recovery utility now, i just keep getting long reboots back to startup. Im starting to dislike this froyo:mad:

    To fix rebooting into CWM:

    Use ROM Manager to push SPR onto your phone. Then use it to push CWM back onto your phone.

    For kernels:

    Make sure you're copying the .ZIP file (not extracted) to a folder of your choice, and make sure that you use the option from Install --> ...from SDCard - so you can navigate to it.

    Pay attention to what happens, see if it is reporting an error when the logging text goes flying by - perhaps you're not actually getting the kernel installed at all...
