    Again I'm usin OV New. Flashed the incorrect CM recovery for this phone. Trying to recover ever since. I have all the appropriate files on the SD but need to get rooted again....
    The recovery is there just black, you can use adb to flash a ROM and to wipe what ever you need wiped. CuriousNoob knows all about using adb that way.

    Still unsure what the next step would be -- i mean, I thought to flash the correct recovery first before doing any sort of any type of rom.
    But the issue is getting rooted again.
    the terminal emulator is unuseful cuz no superuser permissions accepted

    Well I formatted the SD and tried to root again...no success. Is it because I'm just not rooting from 2.2?? I have backups on the PC but now the USB connection fails and does not appear. Debugging is checked, what happened here!??
    I was going to attempt the ADB route but now can't copy the files

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post this very helpful information. I am new to the whole "rooting" and "hacking" thing and started with my new nook tablet last week and was very successful so i thought i'd give my old phone a try and found some trouble trying to write the codes myself. Being able to do the recovery from a flash.img was much easier. Thanks Again and I look forward to learning more and being able to contribute to the android central community.

    You skipped a step.
    You didn't flash gapps.zip after the rom.

    Did you enable android debugging? It's under settings-applications-development and has to be enabled for gingerbreak to work

    No one here is stupid. Your asking a question. Yes you will be able to. It is easier than it seems. Just follow the guide and you should not brick your phone.

    So I am using the recovery v 4.0.1.5 that was provided in this thread. I've had no problem until now, but I cannot back up the boot image. It says error while backing up boot image! Any ideas?

    I suggest looking more into the different threads in this forum .... the zv 4,5 is different then the z v 9 phones as far as rooting methods

    It's your browser's setting that's thinking it's txt file, check settings or switch to a different browser or PC.

    The gapps is to ENABLE google play market downloads, it has to be separate from CM ROMs because Google legally doesn't want third party ROMs to include them. You still have to go to the market to download whatever Google or other apps.

    I am at the point where I enter the clockwork recovery screen and attempt to Backup the original rom. When I click any button on the clockwork recovery screen the only thing that happens is it loads a screen with a hat on it, but does not proceed from there. Did I do something wrong in the steps leading up to this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
