    re-read the tutorial on recovery.

    Search for a thread here called "custom recovery image" you'll see there's a step that involves renaming boot.p to boot.old or something like that. This prevents the system from reinstalling the standard recovery image on reboot.

    Good luck.

    You can do it either before the flash or after, but before you reboot the phone. Personally, I would do it after flash, to confirm that you got no error messages during flash. If you rename and the new flash does not work then you have no proper recovery. Unfortunately there is no good way to confirm flash has taken properly other than any error messages, but it is a solid process, and you just need to document exactly what you have done and are going to do to troubleshoot any issues.
