Default Can't boot into recovery

I have tried everything, Last time I did was when I manually updated...This time I am going hard reset because my phone is acting a little weird. It just won't boot into recovery, I can sit there holding x and power at the "M" for 15 min, it wont do anything? I battery pull and boot regular and it boots fine

I just got the same problem. I'm on 2.0.1 with the Droid. I wanted to flash a new recovery from sholes.info. ADB responded with

error writing recovery: No space left on device

after I rebooted I can no longer get into recovery. Phone hangs on the moto logo. Boots into OS fine.

Sounds like you recovery partition got overwritten somehow. You will need to install the flash_image binary then flash SPRecovery from a terminal app.

Command would be as so...

su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.2b.img
reboot recovery


If that works then your all set, no idea on how to get the original recovery back though except by finding a original droid dump and seeing if it is in there. I wonder if the 2.0.1 update you used had those 2 files missing from system, boot-old or something like that. That could have caused your recovery to be deleted when you rebooted at any time.

Just so we're clear...
- Shut phone OFF
- Press & Hold 'X' on hardware keybd
- Press power button
- As soon as you see the Motorola logo, let go.
- Recovery console appears

If that doesn't work, you'll have to reflash the recovery image.

Aahh. You're right (with a small mod)...

su
/data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.2b.img
reboot recovery

Question Similar Problem

I too am having an issue when trying to reboot into recovery. After entering the recovery menu I am getting the error

"E: Can't open /cache/recovery/command"

Where can I download a flash_image binary to install? And as for flashing the SPRecovery, what terminal app do you recommend? I am running 2.2 and rooted, but and getting the same triangle! hang-up when booting into recovery to do a nandroid backup.

Thanks

I am having that problem too. will not boot recovery but loads os fine. I just tried to install SPRecovery. I tried what CRPercodani said, No luck though.

Is there anyway to remove SPRecovery without being in Recovery mode?

Thanks

If you get the yellow triangle message then press volume down and camera at the same exact time (this can take a few minutes as it has to be at the exact same time). If you are rooted I would install ROM Manager and flash clockwork recovery. Then you can select boot into recovery from the menu inside ROM Manager.

Thanks, Although I cant even get to the triangle. I used to be able to before I installed SPRecovery. I tried a rom manager and it will not put it into recovery it just reboots the phone. I tried holding the buttons down for 5 minutes, do you think it would be much longer than that?

I had similar problem with my phone using the ROM Manager. (if anyone is using ROM Manager) All I did to fix it was re-flash the clockworkmod recovery. Now I can manually get in to recovery on power up.

A long period of time will not help, or it didn't help me, try the reflash i suggested. then try it again. Also you can select the "reboot into recovery" in ROM manager and see if it will take you there. Hope this helps.

I tried that, it didnt work it just rebooted normally. I think I may have found the problem.
I found one of the files that its supposed to use for boot with SPRecovery. And I think the other one is missing. Under "/system/" there is a "recovery-from-boot.old" but isnt there also supposed to be a "recovery-from-boot.p"

Thanks again for the help

I am also having trouble getting into recovery menu. I hold x and power and it just hangs at the M logo. It will boot into OS just fine. I backed up with rommanager and downloaded the clockwork through it as well. I clicked on rester as well as wipe and clean. It does nothing. Just hangs on the logo as well, then reboots into the OS. Is there anyway to fix this? I would appreciate any help.

Sorry for a delay, but since your phone will boot up normally, open rom manager and then go here:
Code:
menu -> Clear Download Cache
then:
Code:
menu -> settings -> Advanced Mode [check]
then go towards the bottom of the main screen in Rom Manager and under "more Recoveries" select "Flash Alternate Recovery". After it completes then go back to the top and flash CWRecovery again and see if it will take.

good luck

I've never been able to flash alternate recovery in ROM Manager. Tried these and "An error occurred while flashing your recovery" comes up. ROM mgr also reboots into stock recovery. Hope this helps, looks like a lot of us have the same prob.

With the increase of these types of problems, I can only wonder if the 'alternate' recovery is no longer available through the servers that rom manager accesses at this time.

For what it's worth, I wrote an email to koush the other day, but haven't gotten a reply:
Quote:
Hi. I am no where near your knowledge level, but I have been promising I would attempt to ask this of you, and hope that for some reason this email will stick out to you from the many you probably already get bombarded with. I remember when you first started trying to develop stuff for the A855 at the old alldroid.org site, and the reasons that you created/ported ClockworkMod Recovery for the A855 in favor of just using SirPsychoSrecovery; you said that CWR used a more accepted rom install method then the A855 specific SPR.

On the many forum(s) sites, and even on your site, it is mentioned that sometimes when flashing CMRecovery from within Rom Manager it might not ‘stick’. A flash of the SPR and then CWR is almost always the solution. In some of my reading of the ‘generally used’ and/or accepted methods for most Android phones to keep a custom recovery a change and/or rename is made to /system/etc/recovery.sh, which I can only assume is the method used by Rom Manager.

Anyways, here’s what I really was wondering/asking/requesting. Is there a way to instead or also include this command right after the flash_image recovery command for the Motorola A885:

mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.p.old

As I have found this to be the best and for sure method for owners of the A855 to retain their custom recovery regardless of rom/recovery. This is the command I used way back when (12/09) and have never had any problems with keeping recovery since.

Thanks for reading.

Now, I have also had people come back and say that command is useless. But you could always go to my guides and try them out. When all else fails the good old 'manual' method _should_ work every time.

good luck

Before the RM update a few days ago, I was able to reboot into recovery successfully for the first time. The only difference was I moved the recovery.img from clockworkmod file to the root SD. There was already a file named "recovery-from-boot.p.old" there, and after a boot to stock recovery, got stuck in a boot-loop. After moving recovery.img to the root SD I went back to RM, flashed CMR, and then was able to reboot into recovery and haven't had any problems since. I am still unable to flash SPR, have no idea why or the ramifications of that but I've been good to go running cyanogen.

I currently have CM 6.1.2 on my phone and wish to upgrade to the latest 7.0.0 RC. My problem is that I can't boot into recover mode to backup my current ROM or install new ones. I currently have CM Recover 2.5.0.1. I have seen recommendations to flash the alternate recovery (SPRecovery) and back to CMR, but every time I try, I get the error "an error occurred while flashing your recovery." I have tried booting into recovery about 10x, and it hasn't worked once since I installed CM 6.1.2. Flashing other versions of clockwork fail, and the method where you hold x with the power button doesn't work either.

I have tried using some of the suggestions on this thread, but my phone doesn't seem to have any of the files that have been discussed. For example, my /data directory is empty and I can't find any files with the word "recovery" in them anywhere on my phone.

Thanks!

i went thru a spell where i couldnt flash clockwork... i kept getting that error while flashing message. what finally fixed it for me,was to go into the clockwork mod folder and delte all the subfolders except for "backup"(defiantely DONT delete that one! and it wouldnt be a bad idea to back the other ones up first,justin case) then try and flash clockwork again. as was mentioned,clear download cache,and make sure "erase old recovery" is checked.

In my clockworkmod folder, I don't even have a "recovery" folder. I have a "download" folder, and the following files.
.hidenandroidprogress
.rommanager_market_license
.settings

I tried moving the "download" folder, and I'm still getting the same errors. The strange thing is that I can always successfully flash Clockworkmod 2.5.0.1, but not any others. I want to try another recovery since I'm not able to boot into recovery mode at all. Any other ideas? This is so frustrating!

I found a potential culprit. I tried following the steps in [Fix] For I cant boot into recovery to make the two flash_image scripts and running them using gScript Lite. I did that, and I was getting "out of memory" errors. I have 32 MB free in internal memory (12%), which seems like it should be enough. What could be causing this error? The flash_image and the recovery images are all in the sdcard directory.

Phone doesnt turn on much anymore it goes to bootloader only when i power and hold d tap but then blank and goes to M logo then nothing. I did clockwork recovery and cynaogen 6 and didnt like it and wiped everything. At first i was able to do nandroid backup complete but that was it until screen said at bootloader "battery low and "cannot program. What would this mean? Two days before i did this the battery was fine and i was running 2.2 update no rooting. Something went really wrong all i get is M logo blinking off and on while charging too. I have not been able to recover anything now. I am stopped at the M logo or once and awhile bootloader flashes when i power up and hold D tap but thats it need take battery off to get out of M logo

After I flashed cyanogen 7.1, I could'nt make a backup of the rom or install a new kernel (would not go into the recovery menu, either through clockwork or through holding the x+power button <I has an OG droid>)

Did some digging, found this thread and this post helped me out My droid is backing up as I type this (which it would not do before, it would just go to the "M", hang there for a min or so, then reboot).

Good info

This was the post that helped me fix my OG Droid!
I was having the same issues as everyone else, couldn't flash squat.....was getting really frustrated....almost had to activate my second OG Droid....aka: (Dad's game phone). but I used this method above, & all is as it should be again.....Thanks!!

Then try all of them because you aren't giving us anything to go on.

Kind of like, "my car won't start, please help"
