    so i rooted my phone successfully and installed the virtuous rom through rom manager and everything went fine... now i want to install a different rom like uncommon sense lets say and once it goes into recovery i believe it says unable to mount sd ext? or file not found and then it says installation aborted? any ideas on why this is happening or how i could fix it thanks

    Are you downloading the rom through rom manager? When the download completes it should give you the option to make a backup and clear data... Do you get that far okay?

    Most roms are not compatible with clockwork 3.0.0.5(newest version) . What version are you running?

    2.5.1.2 is the only Clockwork recovery i use.

    Make sure your Rom is in the root of your SD card (if you are flashing manually)

    If you are using Rom Manager then make sure your version is compatible

    you can flash an older version of clockwork using rom manager.
