    what program are you using to install. If you're using clockworkmod, you should be able to install rom from card with any name.

    Apples and oranges. ROM manager is an app for organizing your roms themes etc. Clockwork is a recovery program. Hold x while powering up until you get the M symbol and that will get you to recovery. Should say right there what version ur runnin.

    ok, apparently rom manager and clockwork recovery are the same thing? do i have to have the premium version to do this? (i dont mind buying it)

    so do i install the rom right from inside rom manager? i thought i had to reboot into recovery?

    what am i missing here

    the easy guide is not so easy anymore :p

    so i went into rom manager and hit the "reboot into recovery button" and that brings me into the android recovery screen (have to press the up volume and camera button)

    so i tried it again with pressing power and the "x" button. same outcome

    this only gives me the option to install update.zip

    i have got to be missing a step here

    Noob, sorry - so I'm clear, what do you mean by reflash? Im having same issue. Btw I'm doing this on wifi iPad using barnacle tether on my newly rooted droid! Yay

    EDIT: Ok, figured it out. Reflash ClockworkMod Recovery using ROM Manager. Worked fine after I did that.
