    There are more and more ROMs that need AmonRA recovery to be able to get flashed.
    I've used ROM manager, loaded the PC36IMG.zip using Bootloader. No matter what I do, i can't seem to get it to work. Anybody have any ideas?

    Make sure your putting it on the root of your sd card, also make sure it didn't get renamed PC36IMG.zip.zip. I'm not sure about the EVO but on the Shift your SD card has to formatted to fat32 in order for bootloader to recognize the file.

    Thanks for the reply, Crump! I've done exactly as you suggested, and still can't switch over. Anything else I could be missing?

    Have you tried to flash it with android terminal emulator? Its free in the market.

    Download the .img from Amon_RA and put it on the sd card.

    When entering the emulator you see a $ and when you type su it will change to a # key.
    Here is the code to make it happen.

    Code:
    su
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-supersonic-v2.3.img
    reboot recovery
    If you want to follow along with a video then here is a good one:

    Thanks SmokeCrawler!
    I tried following the instructions you gave and in the video, i keep getting these errors:

    mtd :erase failure at 0x00000000 (I/O error)

    etc...( the above error would repeat 20 or times with different numbers)
    error writing recovery: no space left on device

    Should I try a wipe data/factory reset?

    At the bottom of the ROM manager app says flash altermate recovery. That's the way I did mine and it worked just fine.

    Uninstall Rom Manager download the PC36IMG zip from AmonRA to the root of your sd card, reboot into recovery, it will ask if you want to update say yes and poof you will have AmonRA recovery. CM is notorious for swapping back to CM recovery, esp if you have the free version. I dont use CM just like flashing the old fashion way. If you want to really keep AmonRa stayaway from Rom Manager

    After you place the PC36IMG zip file on your sd reboot into recovery. make sure it on your sd root and not in any folder on your sd

    You don't want to flash a recovery.zip file from within another recovery. Download PC36IMG.zip and place on root of the sd card.

    Make sure its saved as a zip file. Sometimes it can be saved as just a "file" or even zip.zip if you are not careful. *This has to be on the root of the sd card.*

    Reboot into Hboot and wait for it to unzip and run the recovery zip.

    Vol. up to run update and then vol down to go back to hboot and select recovery. You should now have Amon2.3 recovery.

    I have always used clockwork but I wanna switch to RA to partition the sd card! Is it ok to switch using rom manager while running kingdom-supercharge3D?
