    [GUIDE] How to Root Sprint 2.1 Release for CDMA Hero - xda-developers

    i am using the above instructions to root. i got to the superpermissions and went to flash the recovery image <step 9> and i get this error on my command prompt:

    error writing recovery: no space left on device
    #

    i have stopped and am not going any further. i got the superpermissions app and i clicked allow on the next prompt. idk what to do from here. any help would be most appreciated.

    Moved to the root forum (where there is all sorts of good root information).


    Sounds like your SD card is to full.

    Just reread your post (thought you said pushing, not flashing) and the thread you linked.

    What's your phone memory look like? Try deleting some apps to see if it gives you the room you need.

    You're pushing the recovery image (where you would install custom ROMs from) and the root exploit to the sd card.

    You are then flashing the recovery image to the phone (think of it like installing an app).
