    I have a droid with froyo 2.2 and am trying to use a new rom following this guide. <mod edit: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-help/28436-complete-how-how-mod-your-phone-2-1-rom-o-c-mm-boot-animation-etc.html> This is all new to me. I get to steps 15 and 16 and have issues. particularly with 16. I type everything out the way it says and it says, /system/bin/flash_image: cannot open for write: read-only file system. However, the previous step should make this writeable. I have su as indicated by the # symbol. When I type in step 15 it says, Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory. Is it possible that i need the dashes for the rw? If so, how would i write it out? I have confirmed that the files are in the root of my sd however my sd card seems to have some other folders on it . I don't want to reboot until i get an answer here cause i don't know if i've caused any damage to the phone. Anyone know what i should do? The folders i have are .android_secure, Android, dcim, and Lost.dir. The only other files that are on the sd are the ones that are in root. i have flash_image (it is not a txt, i checked. identical match to guide), and recovery-0.99.3.img. Thanks to everyone in advance for their help.

    Let us know which rom you would like to install. Those instructions are for an older rom. Someone will point you to newer instructions. There are newer methods that cut waayyy down on typing:)

    So what is your end game? to get SPRecovery on and flash a rooted Rom?

    If so : SBF to root and to unroot do box option 1-3 and then you can insatall any custom Rom.

    Yup, that is where he wants to go. Most rom announcement threads include instructions, but I have noticed not all of them do. For someone new this can be confusing. For the rest of us its old hat what "do an update.zip" install means. For that matter we even assume that is what we should do.

    thanks for the reply guys. ultimately i would like to get ss v4.6 on there if possible and also try out some kernels that are ulv or lv @ 1ghz minimum (i know that speed is individual phone dependent)

    unfortunately, after downloading rsdlite and insallting the appropriate usb drivers it sees the phone as seflash omap3430 but does not let me hit start after loading the sprecovery .sbf file. does the fact that i'm on 2.2 mean anything?

    So, do you have ROM Manager installed on the phone? If so, and it's the paid version, you just hit Download ROM and select the one you'd like.

    Well if you have clockwork you should be all set.

    1. download the Rom you want from this site and put on sd card
    2. boot into clockwork
    3: Make a backup!
    4. wipe data/cache x2
    5. install Rom fom sdcard
    6. select Rom
    7. install
    8. reboot

    I think that is the process. I use SPR but it is similar

    I wouldn't use Rom Manager except to flash SPR if you want to change recoveries, it has had a lot of Froyo issues.
