    Try rebooting it, you have to be actually at the home screen. I had the same issue. Just unplug it from your computer, and rerun revolutionary

    choose reboot,or power down.

    dont panic... if revolutionary doesnt install clockwork the second time,you can easily do it manually(might be better off doing it that way anyway)

    download your recovery of choice,rename PG05IMG,place on the root of your sd card,then boot into hboot via power/volume down. hboot will install it for you... this is one of the perks of "s-off" :D

    download a recovery from here: http://androidforums.com/thunderbol...0-radios-recoveries-hboot-updated-9-24-a.html

    Okay so now I am officially rooted but I'm not sure I downloaded recovery, (I did it in revolutionary again, hit y, and said successful, but then closed. How can I be sure? And how do I know if I have clockwork? It's not in my app drawer

    clockwork is your recovery. you can get to it from hboot,from apps like quickboot or rom manager,or from the power off menu of most custom roms.

    you will need to boot to recovery via one of those methods,and flash the superuser zip in order to be rooted. there is a link on revolutionarys wiki and at the bottom of the root/unroot sticky at the top of the forum :)
