I must be having a blonde moment. But how do I boot into cwm recovery w/o root already? I have cwm installed but of course I can't flash cwm recovery w/o root. And stock recovery of course won't let me upgrade with the too pkg. I appreciate any help in my obvious dumb ass moment here lol!

how do you have cwm installed if you cant flash it?

Put your device into fastboot mode and flash the correct CWM.

CWM 3.0 if you're on 2.2.x
CWM 4.0 if you're on 3.2

there are directions to flash each one on their respective pages (they're flashed in the same manner btw, just I wrote one guide and graffixnyc wrote the other one i believe)

Looks nice. Now I guess I need to figure out how to upgrade from my 2.2.2 root with tweaks to HC without messing it up.

Okay, I guess I don't get "Have Clockwork mod 4.0.1.4 installed" part. Don't you have to be rooted to get CWM installed? What am I missing?
