    I used the 3 step root method. Everything went ok.... I think.
    Su, busybox are all installed. Clockwork is flashed Rom manager works.
    When I boot into hboot (power and volume down) PG05IMG.zip begins to load automatically and asks me if I want to update.
    Is this normal? If no. What do I need to do?

    When you're holding the power button and vol down while it loads up, it thinks you want to flash an image right away.

    What you should do is delete the PG05IMG.zip from your sd card, when it doesn't find it it will take you straight back to the fastboot menu.

    After that you can select recovery to boot to CWR.

    Another option is to just plug in the usb with it powered off, it'll boot straight to CWR.

    Thanks mark, I renamed it to .zip.bak and it went back to hboot.
    Did I do something wrong in the rooting process to have this happen? Or the .zip just didn't get deleted? Is this normal?

    Also what exactly does the pg.zip contain and do?
    Is the .zip just firmware?
    Is this going to cause me problems later?

    The Pg05 is a RUU for your phone. RUU stands for ROM Update Utility. It is an executable file that checks the phone, prepares it, and installs the ROM contained within it.

    If you don't delete the zip it just does that. No big deal. It should have said to delete it before you did the next step.

    So when flashing a new Rom. I just download the .zip file for the Rom and flash it through clockwork like anything else?

    Good deal. Thanks guys. Just want to understand everything before I make the leap. It's a little different then the dx. I've read all over and know the risks which is why I asked before moving forward. I figured all was fine but needed the reassurance.

    Hey, mk
    Are kernels flashed through clockwork or should the be renamed to PG05IMG.zip and flashed through hboot.
    I've read some devs say to flash through hboot, does this mean enter clockwork from hboot of let hboot fastboot the .zip.

    To flash a boot.img from HBOOT you need the fastboot program,

    fastboot flash boot.img boot

    But, if it's an update.zip, you can just use CWR, there were some issues before but it seems to have been programming mistakes in the update script and not a problem with CWR.
