The next steps states I can then type the following in the command line:
adb shell strings /dev/mtd/mtd8
adb shell flash_eraseall /dev/mtd/mtd8
adb reboot recovery

I'm not clear if I should have the phone connected to the computer just right before I run those commands or not since the next steps states to let it reboot. (The phone normally will lock up once reaching the Android icon with spinning green circle within a few rotations of the circle animation).

I was not sure if the author mean this would be the computer rebooting or the phone, and wanted to make sure I was following the steps correctly.
