    Hello, I want to install DarkyROM on my rooted Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 (on :greendroid:2.1-update1:greendroid:). Is ROM Manager safe to use? And how do I install the rom?
    Can I just Wipe the dalvik Cache, Erase all data and cache, and backup my current ROM?.

    Some of them require you NOT to wipe dalvik cache (like Liquid GB), but make a backup, If you have Titanium Backup, I would recommend backing up there too as its simple to restore your apps after installing a new rom.

    Ok. I have already made a Titanium Backup to DropBox, but should I, or should I not wipe my Dalvik Cache? Is it dangerous to do it BTW?
    BTW, I´m in ClockWorkMod Recovery (or Android System Recovery 2e) now.

    It's ROM specific. Some require it, some don't. I recommend you find the developers website and read up on the requirements.

    I read on DarkyROM´s website and realized that I don´t have 3-Button Combo. Do I need to have it?

    Yep, it sure is amazing.
    Back to the case again... I don´t know how to fix threebutton combo. I can´t boot into download mode, or recovery mode via threebutton combo, only via ROM Manager.

    Now I just tried to install DarkyROM.
    First, I opened ROM Manager, then I selected Install ROM from SD Card, chose the update.zip file, Then a menu popped up, I selected "Wipe Dalvik Cache" and "Backup Current ROM" options.

    It reboots my phone into recovery. Then I selects Apply sdcard:update.zip. It says:
    copy_common_data
    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Installing update...

    Installation aborted.

    Why can´t I install the ROM?
    Well first of all I installed it from the ROM Manager Downloads folder (sdcard/clockworkmod/downloads/)
    I rebooted into recovery to install.
    Result: It doesn´t find the update.zip file.

    Then I moved the file to the root of the sdcard...
    Result: It still doesn´t find the file.

    Then I renamed the file to update.zip instead of Darky_ROM.zip or something.

    Result: It finds the package, but it wouldn´t install.

    Please Help!
