I get the error "cannot load bootloader-toro-primekk15.img"

I assume this is somehow related to the files / folder location. I downloaded the 4.02 img file, and unzipped it to the following:

c:\android-sdk\tools folder

Then I ran 7zip to extract the files to that folder, which created a folder "mysid-icl53f" in my tools folder. So, I have a folder "c:\android-sdk\tools\mysid-icl53f". In THAT folder, I have a file called "bootloader-toro-primekk15.img". I am running the fastboot command from within that folder, where the img file is located.

What am I doing wrong??? Thanks for any and all help!

That should be working, assuming that your fastboot command is executable from that directory, too.

If you didn't set your PATH environment variable to also know about where the fastboot utility is located, you might just want to make sure that fastboot is also in the same directory with all of the files from the mysid-icl53f subfolder.

Also, check your spelling and/or try doing a copy and paste (I usually pull-up the file in an editor and copy and paste the commands from that file so that I don't make any typing mistakes).

I just did this same process for 4.0.1 tonight (was testing some stuff) and have done this about a dozen, its probably something simple.

Let us know.
