    there are 2 seperate files one that will do it from the internal mem partition and then another that will do it from the scard.. (the actual sdcard).. down load the one for sd card...unzip it and put the 2 folders derived from the downloaded zip file( one will be called RECOVERY the other UPDATE, the update folder should still be zipped) on the root of your sd card... you'll prob have to use a disc reader to do it.. then do the power on and vol+ it'll load clocwork and you should be able to then install the rom of your choice from your sd card.... again you'll need a card eader to load the rom zip to the sd card. then you'll be back in business..

    I'm having this same problem and followed the instructions. The CWMod_microsd.zip was downloaded and unzipped to an external microsd but it is performing some other update when it attempts booting and CWMod is not getting installed.

    Help?

    What is it trying to install? The directions are straight forward. Did you do something else not in the directions?
