    $20 says he hasn't installed a Custom Recovery image.

    And to the OP, we need more info to even pretend to understand what the problem might be.

    Well what you have to do First is make sure that you have some sort of "Recovery" either it being Clockwork or SP. You need that first.

    Then that being said Create a Nandroid Back up so if something goes Wrong you can revert back to stock or what ever your Running..

    If thats all good then With MIUI you need to download D1-MIUI-0.12.3.0.zip
    first.. and install that. THEN install the update which is the 0.12.3.2. That should get you up and running..

    ** Make sure you wipe data and cache after you create your NanDroid back-up**

    Dont know if i missed anything.

    I dont do much downloading on my phone it takes awhile, use a computer it takes a fraction of the time to do..but you could just go onto this thread and click on the link that i gave you then go into the offical MIUI thread and get the 0.12.3.2 link and then download that..

    Either download astro file manager or Crutchlite downloader. In Astro under preferences check the box that says enable browser downloads.
    Then you can download any file so just download from the sticky at top.
    Don't forget that once downloaded it will be in a folder marked downloads and you have to long press on the file then move it to the root of the sdcard.
    Then just used clockwork recovery to install the zip.

    +1 :)

    simple and easy approach, download 0.12.3.0 then select backup rom and wipe /data and let it reboot and install




    then once thats all setup download 0.12.3.2 from rom manager which is just a minor no wipe update

    Sorry guys, I'm a Noob also.

    I'm at my wits end. I have tried to install new ROM with no success.
    I rooted the phone via the 17-step method presented by MotoCache1. Confirmed rooted by SPRecovery and have the Superuser Permission app.

    What's seems to occur after I execute a complete wipe, followed by a cache wipe, is a breakdown in my ROM installing ability. When I select restore, the only file visible is BDS-20101205-0513 which appears to be a backup file in the nandroid folder.

    How do i get 0.12.3.0 on the soon-to-be flying D1 from my hotel window?

    Thank you in advance, Droid Wizards!

    you are selecting the wrong option in recovery, rename the file on your sdcard to update.zip then in recovery select install /sdcard/update.zip

    EDIT:
    another option you could do is in your current rom, download rom manager (free version) from the market. then install clockwork mod recovery (do it like 3-4 times, sometimes it doesnt install right the first time) then download rom from rom manager, and make sure you backup and wipe data first. install 0.12.3.0 then 0.12.3.2 over top of 0.12.3.0 without wiping.


    Steps you would take:
    download rom manager(free) > install clockwork recovery from within rom manager(3 or 4 times) > download this rom from rom manager (0.12.3.0) > backup+wipe > let it install > then in rom manager install the minor 0.12.3.2 update
