Default [how to] get a rom to your sd card if your phone wont boot

current recoveries are no longer supporing "mount usb storage" to transfer files(Exactly why,im not sure)

if you find yourself in a predicament where you need to flash a rom on a non booting phone,you have a couple of options:
1)push with adb

2)install via adb sideload

i personally used cw to test these,ill have to check twrp later.

push to sd card via adb
1)place rom into adb/fastboot folder
2)boot to recovery
3)open cmd,check connectivity:
adb devices
(should return serial number)
4)push rom to sd card:
adb push romname.zip /sdcard/ (where romname is your actual zip file name)
5)you should then be able to simply wipe and flash the rom as you normally would.

*if you can find a nandroid for your particular build,you should be able to push that,with:
adb push nandroidname /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/nandroidname/
(again,using cw. ill update if i can determine this to work for twrp)
be patient,the nandroid is a big file,so this will take some time.

2)install from adb sideload
1)place rom into adb/fastboot folder
2)boot to recovery
3)open cmd,check for connectivity
adb devices
(should return serial number)
4)select "install from sideload" from the recovery menu
5)in cmd,enter:
adb sideload romname.zip (where romname is your actual rom's name)
you should see it installing on the phones screen

hope this helps some folks,ill refine it later as i learn more about it. i did successfully sideload superSU,and pushed nandroids to clockwork/bckup and zip files to sd card.

again, the above was done with clockwork touch recovery

we will have to verify the processes with twrp

appreciate you making this thread scotty.

ok I have adb running and see my device for the first time (using CWM and not TWRP)

when I go and try to adb push Nocturnal_1.27.531.7_Odex_unrooted.zip after pressing enter I get this error.

C:\Users\BAMF PC>adb devices
List of devices attached
FA35PW905487 recovery


C:\Users\BAMF PC>adb push Nocturnal_1.27.531.7_Odex_unrooted.zip /sdcard/
cannot stat 'Nocturnal_1.27.531.7_Odex_unrooted.zip': No such file or directory

C:\Users\BAMF PC>

ROM is placed in the adb/fastboot folder im so close!


edit: when I try the sideload method I get a "cannot read sideload" error.

the errors your getting indicate the pc cant find the rom.i actually got the same error when i forgot to type inthe ".zip" file extension.

off the top of my head:
-you could have the name slightly off
-the file may be a different type(not a .zip)
-you could be in a different directory. if you have the sdk in your path,try cd:\ing to the actual folder where youve put the file
-maybe a name issue? i dont think your name should have any impact,but you might try shortening/simplifying the name.
-you also may try a different rom


ill ponder it some more the rest of the afternoon,im usually home around 8ish EST

well that didn't last long...I think something is actually wrong with my phone doesn't matter what ROM AOSP, AOKP, Sense, etc. i'll have random freezes and hard reboots which normally means I have to full wipe and install again.

well it happened earlier went to boot into recovery and no recovery boots, it freezes on the splash screen with "entering recovery"

at this point I just want the phone to work

Hmmm are you using the gsm image? Are you s on,or s off?

Have you changed kernels,overclocked,or made any other mods?

Changed cid or mid?

you cannot access adb via hboot or fastboot,period. adb commands are used in recovery or the booted OS,fastboot commands are used with the phone in fastboot.

best bet is to flash a recovery,then do a full wipe and try and restore a backup or flash a stock rom. assuming you are able to flash a matching kernel run the phone a few days without flashing a rom or making mods and see what happens.

I can't flash a recovery, it just hangs on the "entering recovery screen" for about a minute then goes black and reboots.

is that the md5 you are actually getting? or just the one listed?

if thats not the one youre actually getting, check it and make sure. a bad download could easily casue the symtoms youre having.

once youve verified the md5,have you tried booting it directly to phone memory? use a imilar command:

fastboot boot imagename.img

that should boot it directly into phone memory. if that works,try restoring your working nandroid at that time,or flashing a rom.

try flashing as matching boot image,to be on the safe side,and let me know if there are any errors.

if the phone still wont boot,trry booting the boot image,just like with the recovery,just use the boot image name instead of the recovery image name.(example fastboot boot boot.img)

sorry, yes it is the correct md5 and checked with a hasher.

I also tried the touch/standard versions just for the hell of it.

I just tried the

fastboot boot imagename.img

when I do this the phone reboots, but not into recovery, if I vol down + power and try to reboot into recovery the same thing happens, hangs on entering recovery, and then reboots into a boot loop.

I'm not sure I follow what you mean by flashing a matching boot image.

where do I get the boot.img from? extract it from one of the ROM's?

sorry for such long delayed reply's, I work the third shift :/

I appreciate any and all feedback

you have to relock the bootloader to run RUU
did you skip this step ?

and you also have to have the stock recovery installed

Not sure how much of this applies to you but it's worth reading up on how to get back to stock >> [how to]return to 100% stock from revone or moonshine s off

uh in the other thread, Scotty states the bootloader must be UN-locked, I'm not trying to restore to stock, I'm trying to get the phone in a state where it can boot any OS, not even running an RUU (since there isn't one for tmob) its just the RUU flash screen I believe.

also I can't flash a recovery, tried numerous times, hence stock recovery.

Humm.. I know it's stressful time but you need to take things slow.
You said earlier you flashed a rom from CWM
so you do have custom recovery.
does the phone boot to CWM now or no ? when you use power + volume down ?

sorry for the confusion but the thread was made for a different issue which scotty resolved. the current problem is from post #6-7

however I had a random freeze/reboot IN recovery and now I can't access recovery at all (boot loops) and flashing it fastboot shows it successful but does nothing when rebooted into recovery.

right now the only thing I can access is the RUU flash screen and Hboot/fastboot.

the fastboot erase cache should stop the bootloop
then fastboot reboot and hold down on the volume should get you back to bootloader.

in bootloader go to recovery hit power you should be back in CWM

yeah thats a no go, hangs on boot into recovery screen, then screen goes dark, and reboots about 20 seconds later and boot loops from there.

ok so this is REALLY weird.

I went to eat dinner, phone was off as far as I knew but plugged into my PC.

I come back and its in CWM v6.0.3.2

before we celebrate however it's frozen, volume buttons dont move anything, touch screen, etc. I'm afraid to reboot it lol.

ok so I rebooted it (into recovery) and it gets past the splash screen but then the screen goes black, with the home and back button illuminated, I have no idea what this means? I'll wait and see if it ever goes into recovery.

edit: can't replicate getting into CWM. :/

I'm not sure I follow what you mean by flashing a matching boot image.

where do I get the boot.img from? extract it from one of the ROM's?

sorry for such long delayed reply's, I work the third shift :/

I appreciate any and all feedback
just to make sure were on the same page when you tried fastboot boot imagename.img you were replacing imagename with your recovery,correct?

also I can't flash a recovery, tried numerous times, hence stock recovery.
in the other thread,the "RUU" in question was just the system,boot,and recovery images from the dev edition software i was at the time running on my m7.

just a bit of clarification: while s on,an unlocked bootloader lets you have access to those partitions. you can flash home made,unsigned files containg any combo of boot,system,and recovery.

in order for the mini ruu to flash,the bootloader must be unlocked,so the unsigned file can flash.

you cannot flash any signed files while unlocked and s on. hence the somewhat seemingly contradictory statement,that the bootloader must be relocked or locked in order to run a full,signed ruu.

bootloader locked=mini ruu fails signiture verification

bootloader unlocked=full,signed ruu fails with a 99 unknown error

hmm. that is wierd. what youve described is like what i experirenced when trying to boot an incompatible recovery. i feel like something on your PC is interfearing with the flash,while lookin successful in the cmd window,is not actually fully flashing a complete,working image.

have you tried any of this on a different PC?

I haven't yet.

I know that these things aren't perfect (pc's phones, etc) but I did all of the orig flashing, rooting on the same pc I'll definitely try it on another one to root out the possibility of it being PC related.

ok so I have everything setup but apparently getting a bad download of the CWM touch recovery from GOO, and the mirrors aren't working, anyone have a good download link for recovery?

edit: found a good download.

so after flashing the recovery normally and not using fastboot boot it immediately goes into recovery, but I can't do anything vol buttons dont work, touch etc.

at the bottom it states something like

E: cannot mount recovery/log

and 3-4 other lines, but I can't read them because the phone reboots and then once again goes into a boot loop.

I'm losing hope

fastboot boot doesn't work either.

CWM touch and normal.

then tried your dumped "miniruu" and got this error

C:\miniadb_m7>fastboot flash zip 1.29.1540.3miniruu_tmoible_.zip
sending 'zip' (425824 KB)...
OKAY [ 21.522s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
FAILED (remote: 32 header error)
finished. total time: 21.695s
C:\miniadb_m7>


and no i havent been able to boot into a rooted OS

all the phone does is bootloop if powered on, and if booted into recovery it hangs and boot loops.

other instances ive come across with the "remote: 32 header error" hAve been a bad download. ill try and download the miniruu and see if anything has changed in it.

i was under the impression that the phone still booted,we were just having prollems with recovery

there is not a way to s-off that i know of without an OS. if we had a stable,working recovery,then maybe.

if we could boot to something,i was going to suggest dumping the boot and recovery partitions,and take a look. still seems to me the images are becoming corrupt somehow.

but if we cant boot to recovery or the OS,its maybe about time to throw in the towel... im unfortunately about out of ideas.

scotty I greatly appreciate the time and effort you spent trying to resolve this, I'll chock this up to it being a "me" thing.

I tend to find new ways to puzzle people with the things I have managed, cars, phones, etc.

hope your 4th is a good one.

hope yours is a good one as well... sorry we couldnt get it figured out. likely some sort of hardware failure,as you dont sound like youve done anything out of the ordinary to it.

so going to update this.

I went out of town for the 4th and come back to a working phone...I have no idea how to explain it except voodoo lol.

tried one time for the hell of it to boot into recovery and it freaking worked, wiped and restored a sense based rom (ARD) and EVERYTHING worked.

again I have no idea how this worked but it did.

went to flash ParanoidAndroid and everything works as well but had a hard reset and because im terrified of those went straight back to the sense stuff.

should I still go thru the hassle of returning it?

wow... wierd,lol. if the new phone isnt on the way,i think id hold off. no point in sending a working device back. if its on the way,or there asllready,id still think pretty seriously about keeping the old one. try some rom flashes and reboots and try and force it back into the situation you were having. if you cant do it by the time one of them has to go back,call them and tell them your issue is resolved and youll be sending back the replacement,not the defect.

i did just that with a thunderbolt. lost data,tried many,many things to get it working,ordered replacement. bam! data worked again. i kept the old one.

my 2 cents for what theyre worth,but i dont think anyone would criticize you for keeping the new after the wierd issues youve had.

wow,that is wierd. its too bad there is not official t mobile RUUs available,wich may somehow fix it. from what it sounds,however,its likely you have some sort of hardware failure that an ruu wouldnt fix.

thanks for the update.
