I just rooted my phone with the one click root and now I'm trying to flash clockwork mod onto my phone so I can flash the froyo ROM and a new theme but every time I click "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" it gives me an error saying that an error occurred while downloading your recovery. I even tried to use older versions and I get the same error. What am I doing wrong? I'd really like to use froyo.

Download the second file linked in this post.

Extract, place update.zip on SD card. Using Odin, place the .tar file in the PDA section and flash.

After this do we need to flash it from rom manager too

The .tar file is in the zip you extract...

Odin can be found here.

Since you are placing the update.zip on your SD card, you don't have to flash with ROM Manager

I would recommend reading through the beginners guide which is stickied at the top of the general thread which covers rooting, odin, CWM, ROMS etc.; http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=897889.

Alright, well I used Odin and flashed that .tar file and I'm still getting an error from clockworkmod. Any other suggestions?

Did you put the update.zip on your sd card? You shouldn't need to do anything with rom manager.

Edit: Further instructions... Place update.zip on root of SD card, flash .tar with Odin using PDA, boot into stock 2e recovery (blue) and apply:update.zip, which should take you into new red cwm

I did all of that and I got a message that says it failed to verify whole-file signature, and that the installation aborted. I guess my phones just not to be rooted....

Wait, are you not rooted? You'll need to be rooted first to install CWM.
