After trying for HOURS I discovered that I has to install 6045 CWM to get the roms to install. So there appears to be a dependency of CWM version to rom version. Can anybody shed any light on this and explain which CWM version is applicable which to specific custom rom? Thanks.
i'm far from expert, but I think I can give you a decent explanation.. I don't think cwm is "rom specific" as you say, but more like "android specific" like ginger bread, jellybean, and kitkat. older versions of cwm work with older versions of android os.. I hope that makes senses, sorry I can't go into more detail but i'm not a 100% on it.
