    I remember getting that issue... restart the phone and then unmount the sd card from the settings menu, then remount and try again. It might fix it after a couple of tries... Lots of users have had that happen to them in the past and really its just a glitch with CWM itself. To get back to stock recovery, we have that in the all things root section, or at least we should...?

    Thanks for the heads-up, Skinnyjeans21 :thumbup: :).

    I've moved the thread over to the N860 all-things-root area for you guys--let me know if it belongs in the other ATR area and I'll move it there.

    Cheers and best of luck!

    :)

    Thanks for the help man. I actually fixed it by formatting the sd card on my computer to FAT32

    A simple solution to this problem in clockwork mod is to partition your sdcard using cwm recovery. Go to "create partition" in cwm and create a small partition of ext. Now your sd card will be mounted. ofcourse copy the zip files to be flashed afterwards.
