    did you try to flash a new rom before the error?
    Does holding x and powering on get you to recovery?

    I wish people would take charge of their recovery image and go with sp recovery. I see 10 RM fails a day. If you use RM, you have to flash the image twice in half the cases. You have great help here, but I had to drop my .02.

    Not sure what may be causing your issue. Here are some things you can try.

    1. Flash the alternate recovery (SPR). Power off then power on by pressing "X" and power. Make a backup and reboot. Then try to re flash CW.

    2. If you have the most current version of CW installed revert back to a previous version and see if that will allow you to use CW.

    Hope this helps.

    If you can find koush's repository, check if the apk is in it.

    Not sure this will correct but here is a copy of an IRC chat I had with Kousch's team. I asked how to uninstall RM. Their reply:

    Remove rom manager from XXXXXX on IRC chat

    Data/app-private
    Com.koushikdutta.rommanager.apk
    Long press delete


    Looked at data/app there are two apks there so I fererl they should be deleted as well


    Let us know if this helps.

    Sorry if I added to the confusion.

    To execute the commands I sent you need to use Astro or file manager.

    Look for
    Data/app-private
    Com.koushikdutta.rommanager.apk

    Once you find the apk then long press and you will have the option to delete.

    Looked at data/app there are two apks there so I fererl they should be deleted as well.

    I CAN NOT verify that this will work. You may want to log on to the IRC

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/koush/38233-real-time-irc-support-click-here.html

    and verify.

    I know that PilotCharles posted the process but I'm unable to locate it. I'll continue to search and see if I can contact PC.
