Default [Q] clockwork recovery

I need help getting clockwork recovery to work on my epic WITHOUT a computer. Don't tell me to install the drivers because I've tried that and it never works also plugged it into the back of the computer usb drives and it never works. I need to find a way for it to work so I can run the truely epic rom on my device. Is it possible to just rename the rom update.zip on the root of my sd card and flash the rom that way? And can I return to stock rom by doing the same method?

There is a program/app called z4root that I have read about. I'm not sure how the program works, but I think it may be what you are looking for.

Try every USB port and try different USB cables.

It sounds silly (and it is) but it seems only certain combinations will work and its not always the default "back USB port and stock cable".

Also once your computer recognizes your phone is plugged in correctly, start odin BEFORE you plug your phone in. My odin doesn't recognize my phone if it's already plugged in.

Of course the easiest way is to just download rom manager from the market. You should be able to install from there. Unforuntely that may not work because i have had issues with that but its worth a try . If that doesnt work try clicking on this linkhttp://www.koushikdutta.com/2010/02/clockwork-recovery-image.html and downloading it for the epic 4g. Rename with astro to update.zip. This is temporary method and you will have to re update every time you want to use clockwork mod. I have never used this before, u may have signature issues. I hope one of these works

Tried you method. Didn't work. Went into rom manager and went into clockwork recovery reboot and went to the standard epic 4g recovery screen.

There is only one way to get cwm on your phone and that's with a pc. There is no other alternatives sorry.

Fyi: there's a update zip for dk28 that can be flashed threw the stock recovery. I've noticed my phone connects easier with dk28 then it does with di18

With having the problems you seem to have and if you TRULY bricked your epic using odin (doubtful), then maybe this type of thing is not for you bud. Stick with stock.
