    First off I don't have this phone...its my brothers phone that I'm trying to do but no luck. He has the ascend...obviously...firmware 2.1. I rooted his phone with z4root n was successful so I tried to flash cwm 3.0.0.5 n seems like its going to do something but tells me its unable to flash the recovery. What should I do next?

    Were you trying to flash recovery via Rom Manager:thinking:
    How did you confirm root:thinking:

    There is a way to flash using terminal emulator download the recovery.img (if its not named recovery.img change it to that name and put in root of sdcard )
    open terminal emulator
    Type:
    su (hit enter)
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

    Sent from my typewriter.

    Its ok...he has root...I put root explorer on his phone and deleted some bloatware but that was it. I don't have his phone in my hand so I can't tell you exactly what the little message said. I seen his phone in the pull down and selected it and thats when it said recovery was unable to be flashed. I've never tried terminal emulator and where do you find recovery img?
