So i know this is my second post about a problem with my thunderbolt today but...
My phone is rooted. Has superuser permissions and rom manager. But it won't flash clockwork mod so I can't flash any new roms.
Anyone know how to fix this?

Open ROM Manager, select Flash ClockworkMod Recovery.

If you are getting an error, then you need to tell us what it is.

Did you try flashing an older version of CWM through Rom Manager? Scroll to the bottom of the Rom Manager and you'll see a selection called All ClockworkMod Recoveries where you can choose to flash a prior version.

Do you have "Superuser" app loaded on your device??? You need this app to grant privileges to your device.

Double check if you are rooted... power off... then boot up in hBoot to see if you have S-Off or S-On... hBoot - hold Volume Down, then with that held down press and hold the Power button... let go of the Power button after 15 seconds, then the Volume Down... the white screen is your hBoot screen.

Sorry if I sound like a noob, but how do I do that?
It doesn't appear in the uninstaller or in advanced task manager

Ultimately you might want reload your current ROM... but some ROMs will let you remove it... Settings > Applications > All tab > Superuser > uninstall... then reload it from the Market. Again, if that doesn't work then you might want to reload your ROM or change ROMs.

Its s-off
That means its not rooted, right?

Did you use Revolutionary to root your device and if so when you installed SU did you install it from market or flash it through Recovery because it wont work from market because SU has to be installed to root / System / App directory and when you install from market it installs to Data / Apps which doesn't work...

Install attached file from Revolutionary Recovery.... Power off / Press and hold Volume Down / Press Power Button / Once in Bootloader select Recovery

No I used a method from xda.
Heres the link:
[Updated: 3/26]Easyroot + S-Off [Version 1.6.3.11] - xda-developers

I had one of my friends (who is a lot better at rooting) root it and its getting the same error. He used the long ADB way

From the post that you gave I can see a user get a bit off with the method the instructions, I would try Revolutionary because it is the simplest method at this time...
