    :confused:I was able to install GNM recovery. Im able to scroll up and down to highlight the the functions. Now my question is how do I select a function to get it to run? (i.e. Backup/Restore, Wipe......)

    I figured out how to select an option on the recovery list. When you find an option you want press the menu button left of the homescreen button on the face of the phone. I just found that out lol

    Currently this is good for is restoring from a nand backup. Which is great because I probably would have bricked my phone x2 without. Hopefully we'll be able to flash custom ROMs with this recovery since we're stuck with this phone for our two year contracts.

    You really feel like your stuck with it?

    I don't consider myself stuck with this phone at all. It does everything I want it to do without any real issues and I still haven't broken it yet. I can't ask for more than that.

    Same here. I have a few issues with it, but I do not regret buying it.

    I mean there's nothing better out there that suits my needs. I need something I can stop drop and roll with it in my pocket and not have to worry about it breaking(not literally, I'm not a firefighter).

    Buuuuut..... I feel that it could've been better. The sensors messed up on my first commando and I got a certified like new device. Then it wouldn't take the gingerbread update, another certified like new. Limited RAM and internal memory. 800 MHz processor. The Japanese version of the Commando got an 8 megapixel camera less than a year after the american Commando came out. There's been alot of commandos that have had to be replaced under warranty.

    I don't know, it's a great phone, but if it didn't have that warranty, I would be stuck with a pos phone. Just seems there have been some hiccups in my experience with the device.

    Edit: To add to it, the fact the it is required to root this phone to get it up to par with other devices that came out at the same time. Rooting does void the warranty, and I've had to unroot/reroot the device x3 to exchange it.

    I don't know what i'm getting at, lol. It's a great device, but it still could've been better. Some of my buddies have non-rooted devices, some not even as new as mine, and they run faster, and load faster on Verizon's network. Envious? No, because I've never had a cracked screen or water damage.

    cat /sdcard/recoveryflash/recoveryflash.sh > /data/local/recoveryflash.sh
    chmod 0755 /data/local/recoveryflash.sh /data/local/recoveryflash.sh

    or

    $ su
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 (your device /system path) /system
    # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    # mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/(your device recovery.img name)
    # sync

    How to I use this to put the stock recovery back into place? No one has explained this, and I want to unroot and trade this phone in under warranty. The vibrate sounds like something it rattling loose inside and it's getting worse. i saved the stock recovery as dump-recovery.img I think.....

    do you have installed-recovery.sh? i've never recieved an ota update on this phone, so that file doesn't exist
  16. rjglenn

    rjglenn Well-Known Member

    Nope, never was able to get the radio to work with the 2.2.1 nandroid. I hope you have a good nandroid of your phone's former self that you can go back to.

    Rafael emailed it to me but I was not able to get it to work. I spent so much time on it that I was able to make a brick in my brick factory. So now I am waiting on the Fed Ex truck to come tomorrow.

    I've been warned, by my lovely bride, that this cannot & will not happen again.

    thx for your answer.

    do you have the 2.3.3 nandroid ?

    my phone almost became a brick (been rebooting forever),

    so i have to install the recovery and recovery it with 2.2.1 nandroid (i can only find 2.2.1).

    how did you get your phone work at last ?

    this line of code couldn't work with it?

    like if you had the original recovery.img, the dump-recovery file, could you move the dump-recovery to the root of SD card and-

    $ su
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 (your device /system path) /system
    # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/dump-recovery.img
    # sync

    what would you put for "(your device /system path)"?

    I mean if someone could give me a clear cut answer, I'll try it. I got my tax returns, so I'll buy me a new phone lol. Does the Asurion insurance cover bricking your phone?

    i still have no clue....

    i will upload my stupid scripts ,just wait for a while .

    I renamed the dump recovery file recovery.img and used the script that GNM provided to flash his recovery, thinking it would just put it back. I excuted the script using the script program that was used with the V6 supercharger script. It didn't work. After plinking around for a while with the terminal emulator I called reboot recovery. I got to the "now loading" screen. After an hour I figured it didn't work. I was not able to call recovery with abd from the computer (adb wait-for-device reboot recovery). So it was a big fail.

    As far as Asurion, if you brick it, tell them what you want. You bricking it shouldn't even come up in the converstation.

    install recovery:
    root_and_recovery.rar

    click "联通下载” or ”电信下载"

    just unrar it and usb your phone then run the runme.bat

    you will root your phone and install the recovery .


    i made a mistake , please copy above instead of the runme.bat in the rar.

    I put my nandroid here:

    BS-20111129-2052.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download - Robert Glenn

    I do not know if it is still there. I am at work and file share sites are blocked on my work computer. As far as how I got my phone to work (back then) I just restored the above nandroid and it went back to working. BTW, I was on 2.3.3 when I started. If you will go back one page on this thread another gentleman has a link to a file shared 2.2.1 nandroid if that is what you are looking for.

    Be careful. You can really mess your phone up. I've done it twice now so I'm going to be a spectator now.
