    Why can't I flash a new Rom?

    Hi, I'm new to al this flashing thing but I want to upgrade to ICS and I'm struggling.
    I have an unlocked bootloader (phone says unlocked at boot up)
    I'm running Clockworkmod recovery 5.02
    Super user is installed
    Rom manager is installed
    If I boot to android recovery, select update from sd card I can select my new rom (CM9) but the installation just aborts and the phone reboots.
    Help, what am I doing wrong?

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    When you boot into recovery, how many options do you have? If only four or five, then that's the stock recovery and the CWM Recovery didn't take. If you have more options, then choose install zip from SD instead of "update."
