I downloaded flash_image twice, and still get the same results.
Hmmmm....I would say that its not finding it on your sd card for some reason.
Just verifying here, it is extracted from zip right?
Umm..you are typing correctly.
Let me think about this some more, cuz I'm baffled. I read thru the Tacoroot method and it is similar to Capt's method.
Just 1 question, and I'm just wondering...you are doing this to be totally s-off?
Because if your phone is unlocked, s-on from the HTCdev method, you still can flash roms, kernels etc....
also you do not need to use winrar to extract the flash image file. the native windows extraction is just fine. and just to be double sure you are using the android folder and putting the flash image file there, correct?
Yay ocn's here!!!!
I think Taco Root step 4 says to put on root of card.
I'll take some screen shots for you guys. Plus, this will get me to give it a go ONE more time. LOL.
oops yeah you are right. LOL!
wrong image file i was thinking of. mikey you are the man for pointing that out!
OK. So while I was running through it from Step 7 again to get pictures, NOW I'm getting rm failed for /data/data/recovery/log, No such file or directory after Step 9 [adb shell /data/local/tacoroot.sh --setup], but my EVO 4G still rebooted into the red exclamation.
wow dude, this is going over my head, but never fear cuz ocnbrze will check back and he knows his stuff and helped many, many more people with worse issues than yourself...don't give up chum
I'll lurk here just to see how its going to learn
No worries here at the AF!
Yes, and yes.
I know...I read through all of them, and felt that TacoRoot was to my liking, and wanted a challenge. LOL. I guess if ALL ELSE, I'll go through Version 1 of this guide, but I want to see if I can really do the TacoRoot method.
Thanks! I really appreciate the help and input!
and just to make sure you have booted into the stock recovery, correct (step#6)?
doing some research on the error. never seen it before so be patient.
ok so just to make you did do step #6 correct? you have to create a recovery log by going into the stock recovery.
OK. So I'm trying it again from Step 6 now, and when I'm in Recovery with Vol Up + Vol Down + Pwr, I get the message E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command, but the Recovery Menu still pops up.
weird. the error pops up on your phone? what menu shows up on your recovery screen?
Android system recovery <3e>
Use the volume key to highlight:
click power key to select.
Reboot system now
Apply update from sdcard
Wipe data/factory reset
Wipe cache partition
I guess I should mention here that when my phone reboots after Step 9, it reboots into the Red Exclamation.
what happens when you do the undo command?
ok was this done while you were in the bootloader with the red exclamation point? it does look like taco root worked since in adb you got the "#" in the command window.
also have you tried this on a different card?
No, but I can try again from Step 6, and do the "undo" part after Step 9.
No, this is my only micro sdhc card (the one that came with the phone)
ok lets try this then:
1.copy the contents of your card
2.on your phone go into settings>sd card>>unmount sd card>erase sd card>remount sd card
3.transfer back you cards content back to the card.
4.try taco root again.
Yeah...I still get the same error on Step 12
Maybe I should chalk this up as my phone is an anomaly? LOL.
...or maybe I'll try on a different computer.
well the are other methods you can try as well. maybe unlocking the phone and trying the captain's method might be the way to go.
That command will only work in Charge only mode ....
Yes, I was in Charge Only mode.
