I'm not sure what's causing your specific issue, but after going back to stock with Odin I follow the following instructions:

Quote:

To add CWM recovery to the rooted version, download a custom Gingerbread kernel from HERE or HERE and flash the zImage using SGS Kernel Flasher (found in the Play Store) on the phone. If you go this route for root and CWM, your Custom Binary Download counter will not show any custom binary activity.

You can download the SGS Kernel .apk from this post so you don't have to log into the Play Store. When you flash the zImage, it will hang on the Samsung logo for a bit while it reparations and installs the kernel. 1.2 GHz is stock by the way.

I have nothing against Rom Manager but I stopped using it after experiencing some issues.
