    On my Motorola Droid A855
    I'm trying to install ClockworkMod 7.0.0 RC4 via ROM Manager

    History:

    1. Rooted with EasyRoot
    2. Used terminal to delete Amazon mp3 bloatware
    3. Installed ROM Manager (haven't installed a ROM yet)
    Current Versions:

    • Android OS - 2.2
    • ROM Manager - v3.0.1.6
    • ClockworkMod - 2.5.0.1
    Problems:

    • My Android OS keeps prompting me to update the system... has been for months... when I let it update, it shuts off, turns back on, starts installing with the progress bar, then turns to a triangle with an exclamation mark in it and a picture of the phone laying under it.
    • In ROM Manager, when I click "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery", it asks me to confirm my phone as "Motorola Droid (CDMA)", then says "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands!"
    • In ROM Manager (I've already downloaded ClockworkMod 7.0.0 RC4) when I choose "Install ROM from SD Card", navigate to clockworkmod/download/download.cyanogenmod.com/get/update-cm-7.0.0-RC4-Droid-signed.zip ... it prompts me to Backup Existing ROM and Wipe Data and Cache, I select both and click OK. I'm then prompted with "Reboot and Install... Press OK to reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery and continue the installation."... I click OK... and NOTHING happens...
    I'm stumped and lost... where is the broken link in the chain?

    You've lost root.

    Solution: re-root using link one in my signature or superoneclick.

    Thank you SO much for that link. It took me a while, but it worked.

    Cyanogen is now installed... BUT... it didn't back up my contacts, and didn't install gapps... how do I get to the market, etc...? :)

    You can download gapps from ROM Manager. It's the last free link. Flash it just like any ROM.

    I have:
    clockworkmod/download/goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip

    Do I want to use "install ROM from SD card"? That sounds dangerous somehow...
