    Is your recovery up to date?

    You can always go into Clockwork mod manually and install that way. It's the most stable way I do. Never have problems.

    First thing is to breathe...we'll get you straight! Will ROM Manager let you "Flash Alternate Recovery"??

    Are you sure that the download completed? If you have access to wifi switch. the two options, make a backup/wipe data and cache. Did you click both?

    like kook said, the safest and most reliable way to flash a rom is manually thru recovery. i never, and i mean NEVER, flash a rom using Rom Mgr. i always do it manually in recovery, and never have a problem.

    if you don't want to do that, you can try to "flash alternate recovery" in RM. flash to SPR, then flash back to CWM, and then try to install it.

    Nice...it's like a helping frenzy. I love it.

    I agree with mwhartman also. It may have not fully downloaded. Check your status bar for the progress.

    I'm not a RM expert but I believe when the rom downloads you scroll the notification bar down and tap to install.

    if you are using RM, then you do have it. on the main screen, scroll down to the bottom. the second to last choice is "Flash Alternate Recovery". Press that, and that will flash SPRecovery. When that is successful, your first choice on the main screen is "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery". Choose that, and it will flash you back to CWM. Then try to flash the rom.

    to do it manually, you'll have to find out where, on your sdcard, RM dl's the roms (i'm not sure where it stores them, cuz i never use it). then you'll need to move the rom file out of the folder, and paste it on the root of your sdcard. then boot into recovery and manually flash the rom.

    or, you can dl the rom on your pc and just copy it to the root of your sdcard. that's how i always do it.

    They are stored on your SD card under "Clockwork" There should be a bunch of files on there that are pretty random. Just navigate through them until you find the zip you're looking for.
