I have searched high and low and it looks like I may be alone with this problem...Sigh... I have a stock rooted ROM with Rom Manger installed. Everytime I go to apply a zip file they never get applied. After 1 second of starting it says installation suceeded but when I look, one of 2 things happens a) Absolutely nothing or B) my status bar disappears and I have to restore. I have tried flashing Kernels, Battery mods, Etc.... Any clues?

When you go into ROM Manager, what is the 'Current Version' showing in Recovery at the top? Did you install CWM via ROM Manager or another method?

Also, can you manually boot into CWM and install the zip? Power the phone off completely. Press and hold both volume keys as well as Power. When you see the Samsung logo come on, let go of Power but keep holding the volume buttons until you see the blue CWM screen in a couple seconds. Try installing the zip that way.

Make sure to use the volume keys to navigate through the lists and the power button to select the option you want.

Ok what kind of file is it you're trying to flash? Name and/or its purpose.

DaG's kernel, 14 notification mod, anything in the form of a zip format for CWM Falshable. I have done it many times but this one has got me.
