    Ok, so im a noob at this. I rooted my og droid with super one click, have superuser, and installed busybox. I want to flash a new kernel into the 2.2.2 os, ive downloaded it to my sd card after renaming it as a .zip, opened my phone into recovery and wiped the cache, it doesnt have a davilk wipe from what i see, and tried to install it but it says no such file and aborts. i also have the same problem with the system update to 2.2.3 i keep getting from verizon. whats the easiest thing i can do to flash the kernel without the possibility of bricking my phone????

    Which recovery are you using? What color if you do not know the version?

    I would guess the OP is only using the stock recovery, since there isn't a "Wipe Dalvik Cache" option available (but he may not be looking in the right location either).

    So, I guess the easiest thing would be to...

    - Install ROM Manager
    - Flash ClockworkMod
    - Reboot into Recovery
    - Nandroid Backup
    - Wipe x3
    - Apply any zip from SD Card

    Now, what are the options on the Stock Recovery? I haven't used it in so long, but if I remember correctly...

    - Reboot system now
    - apply sdcard: update.zip
    - wipe data/factory reset
    - wipe cache parition

    Where as CWM would have those plus the following (at least on the version I am using, 2.5.0.1)

    - install zip from SD Card
    - nandroid
    - partitions menu
    - advanced (this is where Wipe Dalvik Cache is, for the OP)
