    You might have a "V" with the "S" screen. If you wait till 6:00 I will post the links from my PC that will fix this problem. This wouldn't happen to be your mom's new phone would it?

    Hmm I have the V with the S screen and I was able to install the recovery fine using the thread "Guide to Rooting Without a Computer". I installed CWM 3.0.2.4 and it worked fine. My only issue was installing the BACKside ROM because I was getting the black screen so I had to switch the kernel and install a keyswitch for the menu and home button replacement.

    If you have the 2.2.2, you'll probably need to use the gingerbreak method. And if I understand correctly, the new version of backside already has the 'S' screen drivers built in.
