    I was trying to install the new CM7. It suggests that you format the sd card and wipe data, so I did. I formatted the sd card, put cm7 and gapps on it and booted into recovery. I wiped data and then wiped the cache and everything else. i went to install from zip and it said something about the zip being bad and aborted. Now i'm stuck in CWM with no recovery loaded. any suggestions or words of comfort?

    I believe pip said something about pushing files to the phone through adb or something like that. I don't know what it is. But someone else had a similar problem (no os) and it was that or a card reader to put the files back on the phone.
    P.S. Just a tip i do, i put a back up on the sd card when i flash just in case something like this happens i can just restore.

    Just a quick question. If you don't have a card reader and the new CM7 has a known usb problem what was your plan to put stuff on the card like recovery files or new roms. Just wondering.

    I would think the better question would be how ANYONE flashing ROMs does not have a card reader for backup.

    You should try 1000 mhz and see the amazingness that is the ascend. It may only last 5-10 minutes but you can damn well say you had the fastest ascend for at least a few minutes.
