Default [Q] HTC One V Windroid toolkit

OK, so I installed the toolkit on my laptop, and so far have managed to unlock and root my phone.

Here is the problem.

When I boot to recovery, My phone comes up green, then the red triangle. Volume up and power gives me the Android system recovery (3) and a message on the bottom
E:Cant open /cache/recovery/command. all I can do is reboot the phone.

Ideally what I want is to be able to backup the phone, install a new kernel/rom and be able to restore it if I mess up.

Tried to search for help on the forum, but it didnt do me any good. Is there a newbie guide how to do this?

Thanks in advance

Larry

I have downloaded the CW ROM manager and installed rom manager v5.5.3.2 current recovery 5.x.x.x latest recovery 5.8.4.5. I boot into clockwork recovery mode. get the green circle with the arrow followed by the phone with the red triangle. Press volume up + power and get menu for android system recovery. With the menu

reboot
apply update from external
wipe data
Wipe cache
apply update from cache

bottom has a message E: cant open /cache/recovery/command

So i dont think I have accomplished anything except downloaded a useless app
