    Don't use the soft keys, use the hard keys.

    volume up = up
    volume down = down
    camera = select

    So not only can I not boot into Clockwork recovery, but every time I boot into the Samsung recovery every update.zip file I try to use comes back with signature errors.

    I've rooted w/the one click root, I've installed the ROM Manager apk. I've rebooted holding the volume down+camera+power...I've tried unrooting and the phone freezes and I get many error device not found errors in my terminal window about a minute after the unroot run.bat starts running....it does try to run

    I'm running out of ideas. Whats frustrating is I'm not a total noob to Android...has anyone else run into this? What did you do to get past it?

    Whatever errors I'm getting from the Samsung recovery can be ignored because I'm trying to replace that anyway. I want to flash a new ROM with Clockwork, that is the goal. Unrooting may not be the right thing to do. Any advice, links, criticism for posting, whatever, will be greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy.

    I recently rooted my Sprint Epic 4G using the z4root app in the android market. It wored perfectly fine. I loaded the clockwork recovery version 2.5.0 ,just fine, however when I try to but in recovery mode or backup my rom, my recovery screen doesn't give me all the normal options and it trys to unzip some type of update file before it says installation aborted. Just wondering have I done something wrong or not enough?

    I hope someone can help me.

    I rooted my Sprint Epic 4G using the z4root app in the Market. I installed ROM Manager and flashed Clockwork Recovery using ROM Manager. After doing this I tried to create a backup of my current "Stock" ROM. When it reboots it goes into the stock recover NOT the Clockwork Recovery. I have looked on other forums and did what they suggested, such as manually going into recovery using the hardware volume, camera, power keys. This also did not help. They also mentioned using a custom kernel, but I know nothing about that and seems to defeat the point of backing up the stock ROM first.

    At this point I think I just want to un-root my Epic, but I have heard (correct me if I am wrong) that the Sprint/Samsung OTA updates will not work with Clockwork flashed. So before I un-root my Epic I would like to be sure the Clockwork is unflashed. I found a stock recovery image, but to flash it I need to use Clockwork, but I can't because it does not work correctly.

    I would really appreciate it if someone can walk me through removing clockwork and safely getting back to stock. If possible without wiping my apps and data. Or if I at least could get a better understanding of getting my phone backed up and if I can get OTA updates.

    Thanks ahead of time to the Android Community!

    Well I'm not sure what happened to my phone but the button configuration you mentioned above for Clockwork (up=vol up; down=vol down; and select=camera) doesn't work for me. My power button is down and my "H" key on my keyboard is select. I'm not sure what button up is and I've restarted my phone a couple times but I still have this button configuration while using Clockwork. I was a little worried that I couldn't select anything so I slid out the keyboard and just went down the rows in a desperate attempt to get out of Clockwork and discovered that this is my messed up configuration. So if anyone is having this issue I would suggest trying the "H" key on the keyboard to select or to just randomly try keys to see which ones work.

    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.
    I have followed the instructions closely. I have my Epic rooted. I have ROM Manager installed. I let ROM Manager flash Clockwork for the Epic. I have used the manual method (vol down, camera, power) of getting into recovery. But it just goes into the stock recovery, not Clockwork recovery. I have read quit a few forums and do not see what I am missing.

    It seem that the Clockwork flash itself is not taking....

    Any ideas?

    You completed every step in the first post of this thread? I don't see you mentioning that you successfully flashed the kernel that allows ROM Manager to work.

    Your correct, thank you. I was reading so many forums, and the one I was originally using did not mention that, and as I was reading more forums looking for help I did not realize I had not been to page one of this forum. My apologies.

    I do have a different question to ask though. If I later choose to unroot and go back to stock. Could I use ROM Manager/Clockwork to flash the original kernel and recovery? It seems like if I flash either the original stock kernel or recovery then I would not be able to get into Clockwork Recovery to flash the other. So is the only choice to later go back to stock, is to use Odin and flash the entire stock ROM?

    Also as I set right now "without" the custom kernel, but with Clockwork installed but not working correctly do to no custom kernel (still booting to stock recovery) would I be able to get OTA Sprint Updates? That may be my biggest reason for not going forward further, as I want to be able to get the next update when it comes out..

    Anyhow sorry for the noob questions. I just got the Epic not long ago, and I am just trying to piece together all this stuff.

    Use this to go back to a completely stock state. As for updates, XDA always takes the OTA updates and makes a custom flashable zip for modified phones, that shouldn't be an issue.

    ROM Manager will not work without a custom kernel. Boot into Clockwork manually by holding vol down+camera+power after turning off your phone.

    Which ROM are you trying to flash? It may already have a custom kernel in it.

    Follow these instructions. After you're done, ROM Manager should be working and you will have Epic Experience installed.

    Others could be having the same problem as you, so I'd rather post it here for them to see

    Your problem is that you can't simply use ROM Manager to install Clockwork. You need to use one of the two procedures in post #9.
