so i followed this guide
READ THIS FIRST - If you want to ROOT, flash ROMs, Kernels, etc
i ran the update and got the super ninja icon..
and i went through everything up to step 2 installing a custom recovery
"dd if=/sdcard/flash_image of=/data/local/flash_image"
i get a user permissions error when i try to run that.
guessing i need to re do it? but im not sure how or the right way to do that
