    Hi all

    I have a HTC Hero, rooted to VillainRom 6.1.0.

    I am trying to flash to AmonRAs recovery image 1.6.2. I'm currently on RA-Hero-v1.2.2.

    For the past 2 hours I've been following instructions to the letter, battling to get this new version 1.6.2 flashed on my phone! Without any luck.

    I've used FlashRec (old and new version) - it doesn't let me back-up a recovery image, nor does it let me flash a new one when using /sdcard/recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img command. I just get Could not run command

    I've also used Terminal Emulator and Better Terminal Emulator, again double checking that the img is on my sdcard. I followed the command lines as described in numerous forum threads. All I get is flash_image not found

    It's getting really frustrating now! Please could someone shed some light on this.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I had this problem. From what I remember I downloaded Droid explorer to my pc.

    I put the new recovery image to the root of my SD card.

    Plug your phone into your pc. Make sure usb debugging is enabled.

    There is a button in droid explorer that says install new recovery image or something similar.

    Browse to your sd card click on the recovery image file.

    Follow the instructions, your phone should reboot and voila new recovery image.

    Sorry its not more precise. This is the only way I could get it to work.

    Genius Monkster!

    Worked first time and the Droid Explorer itself is pretty nifty.

    Now I can get to sleep in peace!

    Nice one chap
