every time you want to use recovery. its a couple extra steps from a booting to a permanent recovery,but is a good habit to get into IMO,as launching recovery in this manner will let you restore backups without a seperate kernel flash.
hope that helps clear it up
last and not least...
a neat trick for keeping track of your sd card,is to figure out which it is(put it in a card reader is a surefire way) ans create a folder named "aaa SD card" or somethin to that affect... it should always be the first folder on your sd card,and make it pretty obvious that youre in the right place(thanks iowabowtech for that tip
Thanks again SO MUCH, scotty! That bit about going into fastboot instead of hboot is why I'm stuck on that red triangle thingy lol. I did a recovery via your guide starting from step 2 (Temp. recovery).
& will definitely do the "aaa SD card" thing ASAP. That's gonna help BIG TIME.
You're truly awesome <3
