    Hi all
    After a bit of advice as had a major (well in my eyes anyway) squeaky bum moment earlier. (I've had a quick search but can't see to find a reason, so sorry if this has been answered a 1000 times already)
    Bit of background.
    Desire is s-off with oxygen r2 h-boot table and I'm running oxygen 2.3.2 rom
    And I decided it was time for a change and decided to flash a the latest dgb release and h-boot to get the full benefit of the rom.
    So here is what I did.
    Downloaded the rom and relevant h-boot table ans checked the md5 to ensure the download correct.
    I wiped all user data
    Used android flasher to flash the h-boot which worked fine and then tried to flash the rom
    However when I booted into recovery I had the error in the title of this thread or something similar. (Cache : recovery file)
    So I reflashed my h-boot back to the oxygen r2 table and used my nand recovery to get me back working.

    So any ideas what went wrong and how I can avoid next time as I really want to try the rom and h-boot and I'm pretty sure I have just done something simple wrong

    As I could still get to recovery and bootloader I knew the problem was not that large. But the first time something does not quite go to plan panic sets in so any advice is greatly welcomed.

    Thanks

    yes, after flashing dgbhboot you will need to do
    fastboot erase system
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot reboot bootloader

    then boot to recovery and it should be fine

    I knew it would be something simple, thanks for the quick response.
    I will give it another go

    Thanks again Rastaman-FB
    once I had had a cup of tea and chilled out for 5mins I set about following your instructions and surprise surprise it worked
    dGB h-boot sorted and rom installed......
    Cheers
