I'm sill encountering the same issue. After successfully flashing CWM to /dev/block/mmcblk0p16, it seems to reinstall the stock recovery (as mentioned above). I have tried everything from pulling the battery after the flash, to removing /system/bin/recovery. With device in normal operating mode: dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 Booting to FTM mode, without mounting /sdcard: dd if=/data/local/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 Both methods return success, however, the stock recovery always returns to ruin the moment! Thoughts, anyone?
