so i followed this guide
READ THIS FIRST - If you want to ROOT, flash ROMs, Kernels, etc

i ran the update and got the super ninja icon..

and i went through everything up to step 2 installing a custom recovery
"dd if=/sdcard/flash_image of=/data/local/flash_image"

i get a user permissions error when i try to run that.

guessing i need to re do it? but im not sure how or the right way to do that

thanks!

lol....that thread you got the directions from the post was made by an admin that said "Incredible Administrator." I thought maybe you followed some directions for the Incredible that were new.

Just out of curiosity, what ROM are you installing?

OK...I can help you with Froyo. I think that BB at this time isn't a good choice. I'm only saying that because of the amount of issues people have popping up.

You already have SPRecovery installed, correct? And have you done a back up?

don't bother with that.

Download Rom manager (free) it sucks but is good for one thing, flashing recovery

Open Rom manager and do, I think the only option, flash clockwork mod recovery, let it do it's thing, don't know if it has to reboot or not, but when it's done go into Rom manager again and scroll down to "flash alternate recovery" when that is done you will have SPRecovery 0.99.3b

OK then at this point boot into recovery holding the X. Use the volume button to navigate through the menu and go to backup/recovery. Use the camera button and press. Then do a back up of your current OS.
