    I think its well known that flashing CWM that way gives a nice dud phone. You can cruise over to the root section and find the unbricking thread.

    You can't install CWM once you've installed ICS. ICS locks the boot loader and by installing CWM, you break the security check, hence the security error message. Your only way out is to reflash your OS. If you want to play with other roms, you will need to go back down to GB and install CWM there.

    You have to be running GingerBread in order to be able to use recovery and ROMs. If you are running ICS, you have a locked bootloader that likes to brick itself. I moved your thread to the All Things Root subforum by the way because you are rooted. :)
