    I went through the steps and everything seems to have worked, but I still can’t write to the root directory on the phone! Apps like Titanium Backup install and run just fine, but I still cannot paste a file into the root directory on the phone.

    OK. Just figured out I had to swipe down in CWM to choose “yes” to confirm the install of root.zip since it didn’t appear on the initial screen. Duh. Appears to work fine. Seems a tad slower. Will down load titanium backup to weed out some junk apps. Will post again if I note anything else. Thanks!

    When I select root.zip, the confirm screen doesn’t offer a “yes option” only a column of “no’s”, so nothing gets done. Basically still have the stock 4.0 after flashing the recovery.tar.md5 – I had updated an out of the box phone to 4.0, with no customization or sim using Kies before trying the root.

    It’s touch recovery; use the touch screen instead of hard buttons. Worked for me that way.

    Same here, CMW goes into a boot loop.

  • sjs

    Same, CMW goes into a loop, shows all the “menu options” such as install from sdcard however, the on/off key which usually chooses the menu option does not work and the main menu here just flashes on and off.
