What exactly is recovery for? And if the commando is screwed up to a point, you can't boot into recovery to fix it.

Its required to flash a custom rom. Maybe now we will see some roms pop up for commando.

If someone makes a nandroid backup before futzing with their phone, it can save you alot of pain if you screw it up...

Ok, well I'm a n00b to smart phones, with this being my first one. What benefits come from a custom ROM? And if you can't boot into recovery, what good is a backup?

Any chance of finding a 2.2.1 recovery for commando?

2.3.3 is slow and more bloated than ever, VERY slow even after rooting and stripping it down.

I would love to go back to 2.2.1!!!!!!!!!

Ok, in instructions for alot of things I'm seeing, if you mess up, you may have to reboot into recovery and reflash your ROM. If you can't reboot into recovery, then how can you reflash your ROM?

So can this be used on the commando or not?

It can in theory, with great risk...

Being able to boot to recovery from off gives us the ability to fix almost anything we do to the phone. Since the Commando doesn't allow this, you have to boot to recovery from a powered on state. If you really screw the phone up (like with a failed rom installation or a corrupted libaudioflinger.so file), you won't be able to do boot into recovery and will have a paperweight.

That being said, has anyone been able to get this installed? installed-recovery.sh does not exist anywhere on my phone. Flash_image does not download as a zip, it has no extension. Adb will not move it because it says it does not exist. The flash_image from the older version does download as a zip and it can be moved. Since its 60 kb smaller I don't think it is the right file. Trying to flash from adb gives a single error, flashing from terminal gives a screen full of errors and then says it failed.

I hope I am just doing something wrong...

No sir. Not tried....yet.

I plan to do some more reading......am still not sure how to do it or what I need.

If you can't do it I am pretty sure I have zero chance of success.

rjglenn;

When I thanked the author I had not yet read through the thread.
I was thanking them for making progress.

Now that I have tried to understand the "instructions", I realize I have no idea what part of that post is instruction and what part is just general discussion.

I am sure I am not up to the task because, to me, that post may as well be a foreign language. I have no idea what the author is talking about.

My phone lacks the file you mentioned as well.

Correction!

installed-recovery.sh does exist on my 2.3.3 Commando, just where the instructions say:
In the /system/etc folder.

What is this /dev/block/mtdblock2? Is it a folder or a file?

My phone does not have it. I do not know why. The mtdblocks are flash memory or how memory is managed in a linux device.

No, I don't think I need it. The directions call for the renaming of it anyhow. I just wonder why I don't have one in the first palce.

Install-recovery.sh is an evil script that will overwrite recovery with the stock one. That file only exists on phones that have done an OTA update. Like the directions state if its not found move on. If it there it has to be removed.

So anyways, for those of us not so tech savvy, when will we see custom roms and will it be easy to install them? I mean it took me like 45 mins just to root 2.3.3

I updated the install of recovery to make it easier via a script. See 1st post in thread linked above and of course it requires root to do.

Nothing to coach. I used the script. Pay no mind to the error messages. Mine did not reboot to recovery, I had to call recovery in terminal emulator while in su mode. It then rebooted into recovery. I made a nandroid but that is all that I did. Hopefully my thread will get lots of attention and we will have a nice ROM to play with in a little while.

Well that post was completely wrong...

If you were able to follow the instructions to root your phone then you should be able to use the script. Download the file from GNM and copy it to the root of your SD card. if you don't have terminal emulator, dowload it and then do it from there.

Ok, what am i doing wrong, after I followed their instructions, whenever I try to reboot into recovery, the device gets the little android with the exclamation inside the triangle (but after pulling the battery, it reboots fine)

should I do it all in terminal editor rather than adb?

I don't think you are renaming the install-recovery.sh file and it is overwriting the custom recovery on reboot.

Thanks, that's the problem, I was in a hurry, when I get the chance, I'll post a (as close to stock as I can get) nandroid backup for anybody who might need it (also I'll look into getting a kernel dump, that should help with development...)

Help me out here:

1- The recovery file does not exist on Mediafire. When I click on it Mediafire pops up with "Invalid or deleted file".
2- I downloaded the other file referenced specifically for the commando; the .img file. I can't use it since I don't have the recovery file.

I was able to root with both 2.2.1 and with 2.3.3.....even before the script was made. They both seemed pretty simple, but I am lost on this one.

Am I wrong....do I not need both the "recoveryflash.zip" file and the .img file?

Are these the steps you are following to accomplish it?

Directions to flash recovery:

UPDATED Easy install via script:

MUST BE ALREADY ROOTED:

1. Download & unzip recoveryflash.zip on sdcard. You should have a folder called recoveryflash on sdcard after unzipping.

2. Place the recovery.img you downloaded in this folder in /sdcard/recoveryflash and then turn off sdcard as mass storage . (Do not rename the recovery.img from the download)

3. Reboot phone and wait for sdcard to mount (about 5 - 10 seconds) after you see home screen.

4. Become root user in abd shell or terminal emulator with command without quotes "su" & you should have a # prompt

5. Enter these commands in terminal emulator or adb shell # prompt one at a time and press enter after each line. If anyone has trouble with the 1st line you can also use a root enabled explorer like root explorer or estrongs and copy/paste the recoveryflash.sh into /data/local and then start with the 2nd line.

Code:
cat /sdcard/recoveryflash/recoveryflash.sh > /data/local/recoveryflash.shchmod 0755 /data/local/recoveryflash.sh/data/local/recoveryflash.sh
6. It will automatically install & reboot you into new recovery. Using the script above your old recovery.img was copied to /sdcard/dump-recovery.img. If you had the stock recovery copy that file to a safe place as running the script again will overwrite it.

I found "recoveryflash.zip". The first link doesn't work but the second one does if you look in the correct directory.

That is what I did, in terminal emulator. After it finished it did not reboot into recovery, it rebooted regularly. I then went into terminal emulator and called reboot recovery, which I had to do in superuser. That time it rebooted into the recovery.

I did a factory wipe of the phone in recovery today and again lost superuser. Ordinarily I would just restore a nandroid. The problem with this is you have to have superuser rights to call recovery in terminal emulator. I guess this is some more of that "interesting security" that GNM spoke of so many months ago...

You have to have su rights to call a reboot in terminal on linux... Thus isn't really a commando specific feature

Thank you, Gentlemen!

If you have recovery installed on the phone, you should be able to call recovery with adb using the command "adb wait-for-device reboot recovery". I have done this as a test and it works. Connect the phone to your computer, enter the command, and then power on the phone. As soon as the phone makes the USB connection to the computer it will reboot into recovery. Once in recovery use the menu to restore a nandroid. If you don't have a nandroid then you will need to ask for one. If you don't have recovery on your phone then I don't know what to tell you.

For anyone who's reading and has been hesitant to install the recovery that GNM has developed for us, this is why you should have a recovery on your phone if you are planning to do any "work" on it. It's more than just being able to install ROMs, it's about being able to fix mistakes.

Got it to work. Thanks! The directions say don't rename the .img file, but it downloaded as a .txt file.

So you're still running 2.2.1? That means you can create a nand back-up of it and others could flash back to that?

I have no clue what's going on. I'm surprised I haven't bricked a phone yet lol

Spike - if you post a nandroid make sure you make it from a wiped phone. No need in giving us all your personal information...

Talking I got it to work

Thanks GetitNow for all your work on this. I was able to boot into recovery. I am anxious for someone to post their 2.3.3 backup. I haven't been able to update to 2.3.3. since I rooted, unrooted (restored bloatware) and am still on 2.2.1.

Default 2.2.1 Nandroid Backup Posted

I performed a factory reset of my Commando and a complete data wipe in recovery and backed up everything but the /ext-sdcard. Here it is (2.2.1): BCDARS-20111129-0239.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
