I could be missing something since I'm attempting to read this with my Droid, but is there a download link for the recovery.img itself?

By the way, awesome job! Glad you finally got it going!

Do you have any idea if this will fix the 50% bug? If I got it right this is technically an image from your phone, so if you dont have the bug and I push this to my phone it will replace the OS and no bug?

No its a custom recovery that will make rooting very easy and allow you to nandroid backup and allow installing custom roms ie updates.zip. This doesn't touch the OS unless you install a custom rom.

We could technically make a Froyo port from another device. I'm going to chat with Peter Alfonso to see if he feels like it..

To permanantly flash it copy recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img to root of sdcard. Once booted into my temp recovery (fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img) use command adb shell
Code:
mount /sdcard
next
Code:
 flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img

I'll be damned that worked when custom recovery was flashed. Didn't work on stock. Updating instructions and thats awesome because now a bad boot.img will not brick phone as you can boot recovery with those keys.

then still in adb shell type reboot then after reboot do adb reboot recovery to test
Would it be possible to then use something like the quick boot app to force restart to recovery from SW?

ED: Well if SEND+MENU+PWR works after it has been flashed then I guess there is no point

I haven't had a chance to test it yet as I haven't flashed the recovery image. If someone could test this that would be great, because ATM there is no way to recover from a bad flash. If we can verify that flashing the recovery image and using send+menu+pwr keypress at boot it will be much "safer" to go forward

lol, first you have to flash the recovery image too your sdcard. after doing that you can access the recovery menu by holding Send+Menu+Power.

if your wondering how to flash to your sdcard, the instructions are a couple posts up from drellisdee.

Close its not flashed to your sd card but to the nand flash on your device. The img is copied to your sdcard per my instructions and is flashed to nand using the flash_image.

If you flash the recovery from the fastboot boot recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img flash_image is built into recovery so its not needed. If you do it the other way with root shell not in recovery root shell its needed. Updated instructions for it.

Thanks for the hard work from everyone who is doing this your great, I would ove sometime to try and make a rom with a little help! With the root and recovery tool does this mean that even flashing to a bad rom we can recover the phone so it can't be bricked? Also with the root is it just v8 upgrade with superuser access? My wife and I both have ally's and I plan on rooting them and then adding a custom rom when available. Just had those questions thanks guys!

OK, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy. The reason that key combo "didn't work before" was because the stock recovery loads and wipes the data, then checks for an update.zip file. If the file isn't there, it exits immediately. (hence, the quick logo popup)

Anyway, now I'm kinda bricked due to not flashing the ROM per the suggestion above. Really, I don't know what would have bricked it. (not my ally -- incredible user here) But the thing is, I can't get past the Verizon logo. Since I don't have the custom recovery flashed, I can't use the keypress to get into recovery and stay there. Also, I'm really not sure on the keypress for fastboot. Anyone wanna help me out now?

UPDATE: My bad. So, I'm stuck at the end of the Verizon bootup animation but for whatever reason, I can still get adb running. I should be up and going here shortly.

UPDATE: So, yes, apparently I got stuck somewhere after the Verizon Wireless animation. Apparently, this far into it you can do ADB and reboot to fastboot if you don't have the recovery flashed. I also restored a Nandroid backup where I hadn't flashed the custom recovery and had to re-flash it.

Beautiful...

I wanted to see if this recovery console boot would work, but was too impatient so I tried it at work from my phone... Worked like a charm! Just emailed myself the recov img and the flash_image.bin, moved them with astro and used betterterm to:
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
mv /sdcard/download/flash_image.bin /sdcard/flash_image
mv /sdcard/download/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
reboot

And like magic I can boot to the recov from my phone.

Thanks to everyone!
This is amazing!
(its lost on my co workers though, I just get blank stares)

If you used flash_image and that still happens use this from recovery adb shell:
Code:
/ # mount system
 
/ # cd system/etc
 
/ # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
.bak
 
/ # umount system
 
/ # mount /sdcard
 
/ # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img
 
/ # umount /sdcard
 
/ # reboot

Verify that you have recovery-RA_GNM_1.13.img in the root of your SD card by doing a ls /sdcard/recovery* before callling flash_image, also check the md5 if available to make sure the file integrity is good. BTW what is the error?

Not sure if its just me or i did something wrong. But after i turn on my phone holding SEND+MENU+PWR to make sure it worked. Which it did then i rebooted. While booting up my phones LED kept flashing a blue light until the phone booted to the lock screen. Also my SD card was not able to be read by any file browser. Under Settings > SD card and phone settings it showed the amount of free space and total space.

Anyone else experience this? I've backed up the stuff on my SD card onto my computer and reformated to see if that works.

UPDATE:

After reformating the SD card and placing all my contents back on the SD card the file browsers were able to see it. Was it somehow possible i corrupted the card along this process?

yeah did you unmount it? with umount /sdcard in recovery before rebooting?

I'm lost on where he says they go in 2 places. X86 Up Top and AMD Lower part...

Anyone give me a hint on what that means?

Default /sdcard/flash_image: No such file or directory???

Can anyone explain why i get this error?



Code:
C:\users\administrator>cd c:\android\sdk\tool
 
c:\android\sdk\tools>adb shell
# su
su
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
/sdcard/flash_image: No such file or directory

One more question...do the flash_image and, recovery-RA_GNM_1.13, go in as zip files?

I had the same error, the flash_image extracts to flash_image.bin in my case and I had to issue
Code:
mv /sdcard/flash_image.bin /sdcard/flash_image
before running.

Default It happen to me until install su 2.3

download the new su 2.3 and load it on your sdcard. Then reflash the recovery and apply su .zip before you reboot.
