you need to download root explorer
then go to "/etc"
then click "Mount R/W" on the top of the screen,
and then delete install-recovery.sh

You have to use root explorer, and mount sysm as r/w, then rename it to something else, and again mount system as r/o.

What is the question?

If you ARE rooted you need to install a file manager (Ex. Root Explorer), set R/W and either delete or Rename the file. Suggest you simply rename by adding a .bak to the end of it.

Once this is complete flash the recovery image through fastboot.

BTW .. you could have posted this in the Clockwork thread and the instructions I gave above are already there.

Edit: LOL ... I must type too slow. In 7 minutes you got three identical answers.

Make sure you mount the system as r/w.
