    You just hit "flash recovery" and it flashes it in rom manager. No pc required.

    Ahhh Im pretty sure I know what thread you are talking about too. But its for installing a "unofficial" cwr such as 3.0.2.8 but you have to flash the 3.0.0.5 and then replace that img with the 3.0.2.8 in your file manager.

    A lot of people have said you have to do it twice... The first time you hit "Flash Recovery", apparently it just dl's it. Then hit "Flash Recovery" again, and it will install. I've always done it thru the PC though. Hope this helps.

    I'm trying to do this also And am thinking about doing it through rom manager.
    When it fails it doesn't brick your phone correct? And when you do it twice you have heard it works? Just trying to back up my rooted froyo rom. getting mixed opinions about rom manager. Might try if worst cause is it just won't install. Are you using rom manager free or paid?
