    find it droider?

    With RE:

    I went to
    root/../etc/install-recovery.sh
    mount to rw
    open install-recovery.sh with text editor
    add two lines:

    insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    setscaling.sh

    save and exit
    reboot, and there you go...

    Also, thanks Hilbe for guiding me through all that.

    Not showing up for me either..

    When I adb pull /system/etc/install-recovery.sh

    I get

    adb: not found

    Can't find in RE, either.

    My how-to assumes the user has a computer with ADB installed.

    I've got adb, lol.

    It's what I've been using to OC and execute the setscaling.sh scripts lol.

    I can't locate the install-recovery.sh, not even in RE.

    Take off that period at the end of step one to avoid confusion. I am sure when people start copying and pasting this there will be problems;)

    You need to add the .sh to setscaling;)
    P.s I still can't find it

    Good call! I have no clue what to say. Are you using RE? I'm assuming actually that you are trying every way.

    Yeah I even tried making it in notepad++ because it has that option and it still doesn't work. I wish there was a crying "smiley"

    Took the "." off my how-to for you guys. Also, there are a few other scripts called on startup, but I'm not sure if they will work as well as install-recovery.sh. Here are some others to try:

    /data/misc/wifi/forward_start.sh
    /data/misc/wifi/forward_stop.sh

    I searched RE for install-recovery.sh

    No sign of it at all. I'm not sure what's going on here...lol

    Something is wrong I looked in RE too

    C:\Users\Jeff\Desktop\tools>adb pull /data/misc/wifi/forward_start.sh
    remote object '/data/misc/wifi/forward_start.sh' does not exist

    C:\Users\Jeff\Desktop\tools>adb pull /data/misc/wifi/forward_stop.sh
    remote object '/data/misc/wifi/forward_stop.sh' does not exist

    Lets see...
    I am running .604
    I have Nextheme but I don't think this could be causing this...could it? Who has nextheme? PJ.?
    thats about it :(
    What is wrong?!?!?!?!?!?
  15. PJ.

    PJ. Member

    Yeah, I'm running nextheme.

    I can't find it, I'm stumped.

    kastleberg, what about you?
  17. Hilbe

    Hilbe Well-Known Member

    Maybe nextheme removed it? I don't run nextheme, I'm bone stock.

    Can't find it in mine either. Search yields nothing as well.

    For those that don't have it, here is my install-recovery.sh. Unzip, drop in /system/etc, and use at your own risk. Permissions look like:

    -r-xr--r-- root root 470 2010-08-09 22:04 install-recovery.sh

    What is that? chmod 644? It is late, I'm heading to bed. Best of luck.

    Trying it now.

    WORKED for me! I didn't do ANYTHING except move it to the root/etc/ folder no changing the chmod or permissions or anything.

    To all:
    I was one of you guys that could not locate install-recovery.sh for the life of me.

    I used his uploaded file, extracted to root, moved it to root/etc/ and rebooted.

    works perfectly with my modded setscaling.sh @ 1.1ghz @ 34

    I've had a few random reboots running 1.15 at 34. They didn't show up for awhile, so keep an eye out. I'm trying 1.125 at 34 right now.

    Hibe, if you ever get the time... I think you should post your own thread with your instructions. To anyone that hasn't been following along this is thread is all fragmented and all over the place. Its confusing as hell, and I've been here since day 1 :) Just a suggestion. Thanks for your work guys
