    Uninstall all your drivers and the update software then reinstall. I had the same problem.
    Hope this helps.

    as long as its not in the middle of dling you can connect and disconnect at will and start and restart. when i first did it, my software didnt want to load forcytos recovery but let joeykrim recovery on just fine with no hiccups. just try and try again till yoiu beat it into submission

    I kinda did disconnect in the middle of dling but it still said Ready and wasnt doing anything so i just pulled the plugs. I dont know what the hell to do now. I think i bricked the phone. When i try to turn it on reguarly it shows a distored picture of the black and blue downloading screen but says something about not being able to load jpg or png. I get a white screen with red lettering saying the same thing (but without the downloading screen) when i try to go into recovery mode. I have also been trying over and over and over to use the update tool to install either joeykrim or the other one and NOTHING happens the farthest i get is "elasped time: 2 sec....0%" .........what the hell do i do now?!?!?!?!?




    EDIT: OK. I finally got joeykrim installed. NOW!........anybody know the best roms that work with joeykrim ?

    Glad you got it figured out.
    I would say just test some and see what you like best.
    Radioactive Froyo is popular and lots of people like Ultimate Dream or Interceptor. You can always go to the ROM builder at SDX and customize a ROM too.
    Enjoy your phone!

    I was able to flash the other one instead of the joey one and then installed froyo rom. Idk what I was expecting but I don't see much of a difference between this And stock beside live wallpapers (wich is hella cool )and the fact that. Some stock apps gone
    Btw does anyone know where to download Sprint and Google navigators?I can't find them in the market And I don't appreciate them being gone lol

    Google maps in the Market. When I had to reinstall it the newest one also includes Google Navigation.

    I'm glad you figured it out... I had this EXACT issue a week ago with USB drivers and then unplugging and getting the No .png and .jpg error. I had to redo this all yesterday after a week because I wasn't able to get 3G after installing a new kernal and thought it was error on my behalf. USB worked like a charm and flashing was super easy and quick! =)

    i use the custon ROM builder over at SDX as i like that i can custom pick all the options and they can be loaded and reloaded without having to wipe. as far as the sprint nav and stuff... anything taken off should be in a data or app file backed up on the SD card and oyu can just reinstall dfrom there.

    the custom rom builder says i have to go back to stock android first....damn. I shouldve just used this in the first place haha. Looks pretty sweet.

    The tether application that came with this rom absolutley jsut doesent work no matter how much i mess with the settings either. Im dissapointed. My blackberry nor my ps3 could find it whatsoever.

    My usb connection seems to have given up and died as well. I cant get it to work now no matter how many pc reinstalls restarts and phone battery pulls and restarts. That is not good as relates to wanting to install a custom rom.

    EDIT: Does anybody know what the app or i guess how to in general backup ALL my apps that ive downloaded so i can do the sdx custom builder and not have to redownload them all? It gets pretty annoying.

    Absolutley nothing happens when i plug my phone in to the pc now no matter how many times i remove and reinstall the drivers. I dont understand. Without this i cant flash back to normal to create a custom rom. Im thinking it is the PC because when i plug the phone into the PS3 it shows USB Device right and away and Im able to do everything.

    I found the fix to the usb problem. But im encountering another problem. It never ends lol. Im having a problem with the SDX custom roms. I installeld the original stock DE03 file (wich kinda doesent make sense to me because i thought rooting WAS CHANGING THIS FILE so how am i installing a rom if its back to stock?!?) like it said to do and cuztomized the whole deal and downloaded the file and put it on the sd card.

    When i try to apply the zip though from stock recovery i get this error:

    Finding update package........
    Opening update package......
    Veryifing update package.....
    E: failed to open /update.zip (No such file or dierectory)
    E: signature verification failed. Installation aborted.
