    I feel like I am writing too much, but wanted to try one last thing tonight or quit.
    I downloaded a One Click Root for Epic zip from SDX. Ran it and am rooted, downloaded Wireless Tether and another, they are working. This is very similar to the Exploit program 2.2.1, except it is 2.2.4. Glancing out files, this one had a few more folders within.

    Also, ClockworkMod was on phone before rooted.

    And it did take forever to download drivers. They wouldn't on my laptop, went to desktop. So there might be something to haven't framents left on it.

    And that one is made to run without unmounting card. So if you are getting stuck above, try this alternative.

    You are in usb debugging mode, right? This method worked for me when I first rooted. It should work the same for Clockworkmod.
    Yeap Debugging mode...unmounted.

    one last question- did you extract the files to the tools folder of your sdk?
    One thing to try is manually pasting in the lines
    Code:
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    adb push root.sh /data/local/root.sh
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/root.sh
    adb shell /data/local/root.sh
    
    wait
    
    adb push redbend_ua /data/local
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/redbend_ua
    adb push zImage /sdcard
    
    
    adb shell /data/local/redbend_ua restore /sdcard/zImage /dev/block/bml8
    
    wait
    
    adb shell rm /data/local/redbend_ua
    adb shell rm /sdcard/zImage
    adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    adb shell rm /data/local/root.sh

    I've been trying to install this recovery and i still can't get it to work. I'm on a mac so i had to do the command lines manually thru terminal. I didn't get any errors when inputting the commands. After the phone rebooted automatically, I completed the "cleanup" portion and turned off phone but when i try to get into clockwork, i still get stock recovery. Any suggestions?

    says
    android system recovery <2e>

    Samsung Recovery Utils
    - for BML-

    so i go to apply sdcard:update.zip cause im assuming i still have to flash clockwork mod
    i get an error saying
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:singature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    what should i do? wait till rom manager has cw support for the epic?
    or is there some way to fix this?

    I believe that you have to flash a boot kernel first (andromeda on XDA) before you can flash a custom recovery. If I try it with a stock kernel I do not get any errors but it only goes to the stock recovery (that is what you have above) The other error is because the stock recovery will only flash a properly signed update

    I finally figured it out!! To get the clockrom custom recovery installed you first need root then before you use the one click clockrom installer you need to start remount rw- check out this great tutorial here

    I've got clockworkmod installed via osx, but I get the signature verification failed error as well. I don't have nandroid backup to backup my stock rom so that I can install a custom rom. I also only have the option to update via an update.zip not any other type of zip and when I try that I get the signature failed.

    Any help? Please keep in mind that I have a mac and cannot use any of the windows run.bat tools. (snow leopard)

    Thanks!

    I'm on a Macbook Pro, and if you plan on tinkering with your phone a lot I would highly recommend getting a copy of Windows and installing it on Boot Camp. But if you don't want to go that route, you can always open up the .bat files and manually enter the code into Terminal.

    No luck getting to clockwork recovery. I followed the steps and everything appeared to work as intended but it still boots to stock recovery. No Epic Experience for me tonight

    10/10/10 is my lucky day!

    I finally got Recovery mode working!

    I'm trying to flash andromeda through Rom Manager and I still only get stock recovery. Any suggestions on what may be going wrong?

    If you're rooted, try tapping "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" in ROM Manager first. Then boot into Clockwork and install your ROM or kernel.

    Hmmm I always thought I was rooted, my wireless tether works and I've removed all kinds of bloatware. I pressed flash in rom manager which says it downloaded successfully. When I try to boot into it or flash something I still get the stock recovery...

    Kind of ironic - Clockwork is supposed to save your phone, not brick it Glad you figured it out!

    If you're referring to the Reboot into Recovery Mode option in the ROM Manager app, it will not work unless you have flashed a custom kernel that is ROM Manager friendly.

    You need to use the manual method. While the phone is off, hold the vol down + camera + power buttons.

    what exactly are you guys doing when trying to flash recovery?

    make sure you follow the directions to a T. also if this does not work theres another method or two over at xda forums.
