    Hello avid Helpers,

    I wan't to install the new recovery image on my Hero.

    I am struggling doing so....I have Cyogen 1.4 at the moment

    Do I have to do it the adb way ?

    If so what is adb ? I am new to all these command things...

    On the site it says do the following...

    Copy recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img to the root of your sdcard
    Boot into your current custom recovery (boot while holding HOME)
    Connect your Hero via usb to your pc/mac/...
    adb shell
    $su (not required if you have root already)
    #mount -a
    #flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img

    I am on Windows 7

    Do I need to download anything to run these commands ?

    I tried Downloading the Android SDK but kept getting a failure to download package thing.

    An easy guide would be much appreciated

    I tried using the flashrec way but it would'nt backup my recovery image

    I am currently using Sense Hero 2.1 ROM

    Many Thanks

    I used this method to upgrade my copy of amon ra, using the Terminal app:

    This also looks good:

    Which option did you try? I think it means whichever program, adb or the terminal, isn't getting root access.

    I won't pretend to be an expert with ADB, but I believe if you type:

    adb remount
    adb shell

    and you're left with the hash key on it's own like this:
    #

    then you have root access.

    So you might want to try this in adb in stead:

    cd \adbfolder
    adb shell
    su
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-Hero-vX.X.X.X.img

    But like I mentioned, my adb skills don't go much above copy and pasting what I'm told to :p
