I have enabled "ADB Daemon" from BootMenu and now that I log in I can see that there is indeed no /dev/block/mmcblk0*. However these are listed in /proc/partitions. So I can
# cd /dev/block/
# mknod mmcblk0 b 179 0
# mknod mmcblk0p1 b 179 1
Then install the update from ClockworkMod, and I have a progress bar....
....and the phone reboots with a Google logo rather that Moto, and eventually I get a screen with a green grass background! I even seem to be able to make calls, and WiFi seems to work.
OK!, so, what is the consequence of not having gone via a 2.2 system?
@endecotp - thanks man. Same problem here - glad you figured it out as i wouldn't have thought of that.
Also to anyone else that's reading. Went straight from Eclair to CM 7. Nothing odd to report. Camera, Phone, wifi all working. Great ROM - thanks to the whole CM team for a great rom + endecotp for the tip so i can use it. Very Happy
for anyone stuggling with this.

Continue with the install.
