    I am a total newbie and am completely lost. I rooted my EVO and downloaded ROM Manager v4.2.1.0 (free). I went to download ROM option and it list of ROMS I chose a ROM and it started dowloading. It finishes but doesnt do anything. So after doing it 5 times I decided to try loading a ROM to my SD card and installing that way. I open the folder I created to hold the ROM and click the ROM Evervolv-Acies-1.1.0b3 and when I do it just opens up to two different files. 1 is META-INF/ the 2nd is system/ if I click them it just shows me more files. PLEASE HELP ME!

    Well first thing I have noticed it far better option to flash roms in recovery. Using Rom manager more often then not causes problems if you not sure what is doing....if u can boot your phone up go ahead and do that can u boot up?

    Then u will want to put a ROM.zip on the top level of your SD card. (Not in any folders) then boot into recovery and do all the required wipes. Then flash zip from SD option is what u want. Select your Rom.zip and happy flashing

    thats why i don't suggest using rom manager.. some where along the line it did not flash your rom correctly... very picky program... tell you what if your willing lets do this manually. so you under stand whats going on. then if your like you can use rom manager later and you will then know what the app can and can't do

    so first did you make a nandroid?

    Actually I was abl[e to get my phone to go the boot screen and am currently installing the ROM from recovery. I did make a complete back up of my system using both my hardrive on my computer and using superbox tool and titanium backup
