Hey, it's the same file. Both QbKing and Chainfire link to same page. So actually I did it right by the same method. So do you have any other thoughts that aren't condescending?
Are you sure you are following the directions properly? I tend to odin back to stock, reroot and flash new roms about once a week. I feel like I get a cleaner flash if I come from stock instead of another rom. (I know it is dumb and a waste of time but its my way.) I always go to Chainfire's site and get the newest autoroot, then Philz touch to for his newest custom recovery. (I did hear there was some problems with one last week or so but not sure which, again, read his thread. Philz is awesome.) I also always use 3.07 on my PC to Odin both of these because I have not slowed down enough to get a copy of 3.09 without having to go through the website that seems a little sketchy to me. I then setup 3.07 on my laptop and with cf-autoroot so it can check whatever it checks. I turn my phone completely off. Let it settle shut down. Then I boot into download mode. Once in download mode, I plug in my USB cable. Once the "com" lights up I hit start. I have heard of people having problems here but so far, knock on wood, I have not. Once that finishes and everything settles on the autoroot after booting up, I will do the same with the custom recovery, i.e., setup up the pc, turn off the phone, boot into download mode, plug in cable, hit start. Shazaam!
If I just could not get it to work, I would go to cm.com and let them root the phone on their website and then flash a custom recovery and come back here to flash a rom.
Daniel is sometimes short but it is because it is frustrating to answer the same question over and over when the answer is very often two pages back, on the first page of the OP or can be found within seconds using google. Since I cannot speak for Daniel, in my personal experience, there is no reason for you to have these problems unless you are not following directions. Of course, everyone's phone does a little different so maybe you just got one that doesn't like CF, no matter how weird that would be. Good luck!
