You missed the part where you're supposed to change directories. At the command prompt type CD C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools or whichever directory you installed the SDK to. Then type adb shell.

If you downloaded the platform tools add on,inside android sdk, all you have to do is navigate to the platform tools folder,open it up,hold shift + right click. Then select open command prompt here..then copy and paste the commands.

I have had mine done for quite some time, I have never had a problem with the command prompt and finding directory I needed, but this little time saving tip saves both typing and time.

That error usually happens when you skip the first line:
Code:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system

Anytime you enter a line correctly, it will repeat the line right back at you. If it isn't spitting it back, something isn't right.

Your output in CMD/ADB should look like this minus the error at the end:


Unfortunately up to this point there has not much reason for it to fail other than user error as long as it is a fresh boot and ADB was given SuperUser permission.

Would it still look like this using the terminal?

Hey Mike, as noted in the below post (oops, I meant to post the other quote first, then this one), I ended up having to use the term on my wifes phone. However, following your lead in the 1st part, I couldn't get r/w privileges. What I ended up doing was typing all the commands from the 2nd part and it worked flawlessly. Her phone now has the custom recovery installed and I have booted into it and made a nand backup already. Thanks for the guide, I was able to make it work for my wife's phone.

Hey Darnell, I just did this yesterday on my wife's phone (did mine a few months ago) and ended up having to use just the terminal on her phone. When I was trying to install the Android SDK on her Windows 7 computer, I also had to install the JavaDK. For some reason or other, I couldn't get it installed, so never was able to get the Android SDK installed either. I then tried it on mine (remember, I had set up recovery on my phone previously). I kept getting the following: error: more than one device and emulator. So, I decided to just do her phone from the term I had installed on it. All that to say, that when using the term, you don't get the repeat back to you like you would in the adb shell.

Interesting find. I plan to get a new comp in a few weeks that will be Win7 64bit. I may have to keep my XP box in a corner somewhere until Win7 complications get worked out.

Our home computer is Windows 7 64bit. My work laptop is WinXP SP3, and that's where I have worked on my phone. I tried the 32 bit version of the JDK, and it wouldn't run (I know that some 32bit programs will run on 64 bit os). The JDK would just hang on the progress indicator during install. I plan to try it again sometime, so I'll keep you posted.

Update: So I re-downloaded the JDK today and this time I just let it run it's course. It took an extremely long time, but it finally installed. Then I went and ran the installer for the Android SDK. It said I needed the JDK. Now I was frustrated 'cause I had just spent an hour to install the JDK. After a couple of times of this, I finally googled the problem and found a solution. Apparently, for some reason on W7 64 bit, when you get the notice saying that Android SDK requires the JavaDK, if you hit the back button, and then hit the next button it'll work. So I followed that advice and low and behold it did work. I now have the Android SDK installed on my wife's computer.

For just using adb you do not need to install any of that. you need in one folder these files

A while back, when I was first learning how to flash the getitnowmarketing recovery, I was directed to install just the Android SDK tools and the and the Platform tools. Then I could run ADB shell under to push commands to the phone, such as doing all the commands necessary to flash the recovery.

This is what you read correct

Android SDK Tools and Android SDK Platform tools. Make sure USB debugging is activated (On your phone go to settings> applications>development and check USB debugging) Then open up Cmd and type the following: cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools.
When you follow those you end up with the folder on your hard drive inside that folder are the files I showed.

Correct. So in order to get all that, I had to also install the JDK. I guess that I didn't understand when you said I didn't need to install all of that.

What about extracting the .zip(s) file before copying to root of sd_card (should be extracted first) - just idea. Please disregard if that's been done.

Sorry to bump this thread. I'm using the terminal emulator and I got the same error all I did was continue on to the next line of code and then I used an app called "AnReboot" to boot into recovery mode and I got the all in one recovery working perfectly.
