    it might give u that error if adb is open. unplug ur phone, open windows task manager, look for adb. if its there, kill the process. disable and then reenable tethering on ur phone, and then plug it back in. the driver can b picky sometimes if not done in the correct order.

    when i went to safely remove my phone from the system tray it asks me to remove adb interface as well. could that be the issue. If i remove the interface instead of

    if the adb interface thing came up, u should b good to go. open a command prompt, browse to your sdk folder, then to the folder platform-tools inside of it. once in platform-tools, type adb devices. if it comes up with a string of numbers or a mention of Venture, u should b good to go! the fact that it is giving u the option to safely remove the interface means that ur adb driver is installed. dont worry about the pdanet program. it doesnt have to b connected to the internet to use adb.

    I am assuming that you mean window explore not DOS prompt to my computer C/: and search for the folder SDK which was downloaded through the alternative thread with the EnvSET shortcut or through the SDK in program files in the Android sdk tools file. and if window explorer in windows XP where am i typing devices?

    You shouldn't have to run PDANet anywhere, just install it on the computer so the driver gets installed and then ignore it entirely. Works on my XP computer.

    He meant command prompt (it's technically not a DOS prompt and hasn't been since Windows ME), not Explorer.

    Start -> Run
    CMD <enter>
    cd "\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools"
    adb devices (you should see "List of devices attached" and one item in the list)
    adb shell (now you are at a $ prompt, the linux command prompt running on the phone)
    su (now you are at a # prompt, the elevated linux command prompt running on the phone)

    I am obviously missing a step and i can't figure this out. I opened up the command prompt in DOS it starts with documents and settings instead of just C:\ I am drawing a blank can someone give me all the steps i am missing something .

    i opened fastboot.exe and it says adbwinapi.dll was not found

    one last thing i have thoroughly confused myself. too many things going on and not enough sleep. ok so i have gotten to the su now am i at the end of the code i need to input or the beginning? and start with the abd push flash_image blah blah blah that followed on the first post in this thread? and when i put in the location i put the directory on the sdcard which i put it in the android folder. with my stock ROM backup and my personal ROM replacement i worked on last night. yes i am on the phone so yes where i put the files on my phone.

    once u have set up adb, u need to move the 2 files that u downloaded from the very first posting in this thread (the custom recovery files) into the platform-tools subfolder of your sdk folder. after that (with your phone plugged into your pc), you run the code that is posted in the beginning of this thread in your command prompt. make sure that you are in the platform-tools directory in your command prompt before running the code. if all goes well, cmw recovery should be installed after entering the last line of coding in ur command prompt.

    Dracable Well-Known Member Contributor

    so, first thing u need to do is to copy the flash_image and the cwm-recovery.img files to c:\program files\sdk-tools. after you do that, open command prompt, make sure in the command prompt that you are pointed to the c:\program files\sdk-tools directory, and run the EXACT coding in the first post of this thread. that SHOULD take care of your problems if u follow step by step.

    edit: i should make it clear that the flash_image and cwm-recovery.img files do not go on the sd card at all. those files are put into the sdk folder, and the coding that was posted at the beginning of this thread tells adb to "push" the files to your phone's file system. after that, adb tells your phone to flash the boot.img file to the /boot partition. just make sure that flash_image and cwm-recovery.img is in the sdk folder, and follow the exact coding as it is written, and u should b fine.

    adb push is done from the Windows command prompt, not from the phone's linux prompt. Any command beginning with 'adb' is run on your computer at a "C:\{whatever}\>" prompt.

    i wish someone would edit the instructions, so to tell to install sdk to the main directory of c:\\ so that the file path to run adb would be
    cd c:\\android\platform-tools
    i dont remember if i added the folder android as the root folder....but regardless. installing to the program folder only makes it entirely harder to manage all around.
    all i know after some work, and READING the rest of the forum with help from google i was able to do it.
    im not sure where sdk tools is, and if its the updated version of sdk....but yes, like they said you have to have the files you want to push in the platform-tools folder
    find your platform tools folder, add the files you want to push, IE the recovery files, then navigate to it on command prompt, then
    type adb devices (i dont know why this didnt work in your example)
    then you should be able to push them to the correct directory.
    like i said dude, this thread has a ton of replys, im sure someone has addressed this before. im just glad these guys are patient and will explain it again.

    Just add it to your path. Then you don't need to CD anywhere.

    I had placed the recovery files in sdk first and it didnt work so i downloaded the mini-sdk "sdk-tools" that allowed me to get as far as i have and the files are not found. so now i am simply stumped. I took a nap ate some dinner and i am just lost.

    You must have missed this post:

  20. SimsKITblue

    SimsKITblue Member

    No. I have read that post and every single post in this tread two or three times. i have been running it from my computer since i realized i wasn't supposed to turn on USB storage and only needed usb debugging enabled. i have to have pdanet turned on on my phone before i connect to avoid an error. and i get further with pdanet turned on my computer as well is it supposed to say "not found" or is it supposed to be blank"

    will i really brick my phone if i download the two files to my computer connect my phone and move the two files to the sdcard and then use ROM toolbox to simply move them to the data/local/tmp directory with root browser?
    and then while still connected run fastboot.exe on my computer. while in the adb shell mode from the command prompt

    Dracable Well-Known Member Contributor

    there is definately a chance. rom manager is not compatible with our phones right now. i dont understand why you would want to do it that way. u would b taking a bunch of extra and unnessessary steps. the adb method still isnt working?
  22. Dracable

    Dracable Well-Known Member Contributor

    what error are u getting when u try to connect to the computer without pdanet turned on on ur phone?

    edit: nevermind. i saw the error. just missed it thru the first read. the very first time i had flashed cwm, i did it thru fastboot. read up on how to flash recovery thru fastboot.
  23. SimsKITblue

    SimsKITblue Member

    no it isnt working. i deleted and redownloaded everything moved the SDK AND sdk-tools fileS from proGRAM files to c:/.

    I continued through with the commands regardless of the "file not found" response and nothing.
    i get get the error HTC sync error = -1 but that is with pdanet turned on my phone.

    in command prompt it doesn't read the phone at all and the list is blank.

    why should that have to be edited? you are talking about moving two or three folders. if you really wanted to be lazy you could just hold shift and right click in a window, the option to open command prompt will be there. ergo destroying any "hardness" of what you are talking about.

    or just setup the path properly like divine pointed out
