Ok the step you need to stop doing is trying to apply the update.zip. this isn't nessasary. You need to have the files on your SD card that you wanna flash and go straight into " the apply zip from SD card". Try that. I have had several errors on flashing because I did several things wrong. I will help as much as I can.

Odin the cwm all unless you are doing a MTd, cm7, Aosp rom. Did this wrong for days trying to fix the stupid errors.

Which method do you use if you want to use a CM rom? I tried for days and never could see anything in any stickies saying that cwm all would not work with certain roms. A link to the right sticky would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Dave

Flash the CWM4 that was fixed for CM7, either through Odin (TAR file using PDA button) or through your existing CWM (ZIP file)

I honestly don't remember where I found it....I think it was the link to the cm rom. I will check and get back later.

Ok here it is....it is a small clue in the attached files area after the write up...lol. I tried for a week to figure it out without those files. I downlaoded them but thought they were a "fix" in case I needed them....noob here too!

Flash or Odin into the cwm4 and you will be in business.

im am new to this but it cant be this hard...i did a factory reset and wiped everthing...thank for the help by the way
No problem at all...first problem is that .tar files are used with Odin not cwm.

breath...

What do you want to install...like what is the rom/kernel that you want...

I am using Odin to get back to stock now..then I am going to try the Biffmod and PoolParty Roms. I have tried the GB leak and supa frankenclean voodoo and nonvoodoo.

you need a zip file to use the cwm...pick one and we go from there

Pick a zip rom/kernel (zip file) and place in sd card... check...

Odin correct version of cwm for the rom...check...

follow guide for the specific cwm you need to boot into recovery...do it...boot into cwm....check...

wipe data ....check
wipe cache....check
wipe dalvik...check

apply zip from sd...confirm...should be good...:D

let me know

No...

Don't do anything with the update file...skip that step
Wipe, and
Instead apply from SD card and you are done

If you want cm7 than you need one more step. You need to apply from SD card the fixed recovery...not the update.

Once that is done you reboot into recovery and it rakes you to the new one...then you install the cm7 or mtd....etc.

Should be set :)
