you do have an alternate recovery, right
most likely very simple...............is it a STATUS 7 ????
if so, you just need to update your recovery.
if you are using CWM, many ROM's suggest TWRP. some are not having problems with CWM, but TWRP is much more user friendly and don't have to mess with vol +/- buttons
