    When did you get those errors? What exactly led up to it?

    And no worries. I'm not a pro either, just done it a few times and trying to help. I know how hard it can be when you have no idea what to do.:)

    hmmm. I would delete the files it extracted and try again. If you get the same thing (errors) try 7zip to extract it.

    EDIT:
    HOLD ON! I can't get it to extract properly either. Gimme a sec...

    EDIT2 I had the wrong password :eek: it is "androidsamurai" without the quotes of course.

    Now erase what it had extracted and try again :D

    Next go to your start menu on the pc and right click "My Computer" and click "properties"

    Select the "Advanced Settings" tab

    Select "Environment Variables"

    Click "New" under system Variables and input:

    Variable: adb
    Value: C:android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

    Save that (if there is a button for that I can't remember.)

    Open up command prompt.

    Type the following without the quotes:

    "cd\" Press enter You should see C:\>
    "cd android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" Press enter. You should see C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>
    "adb.exe" Press enter

    You should see a bunch of stuff fly by. Good.

    Make sure your phone is booted into Fastboot: From OFF press the down volume and hold it. Press the power button and hold it too for a slow 5-count then release only the power button. you can release the volume button only when the HBOOT screen comes up. Let it cycle it's attempt to find a PG32 file or whatever.Select FASTBOOT and you should now have a highlighted FASTBOOT where you before had HBOOT (about 1/4-1/3 down from the top)

    EDIT: I changed the commands a little...

    What happens if you boot into bootloader and then plug it in?

    Note: I changed the commands in the last post.

    what was the old command this ones not working and i tried to go back and duplicate, with no luck

    edit i can get in to fastboot\bootloader
  11. TheAtheistReverend

    TheAtheistReverend Anybody want a peanut? VIP Member

    These commands wont work unless you're in FASTBOOT on your phone.

    Have you been able to get it into FASTBOOT?
  12. jpetrach

    jpetrach Active Member

    ok but the steps in previous post was correct
  13. TheAtheistReverend

    TheAtheistReverend Anybody want a peanut? VIP Member

    "cd\" Press enter
    That should put you at the root of the C drive.
    "cd android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" Press enter
    That should get you into the platform-tools folder.
    "adb.exe" Press enter.
    That should make a whole bunch of stuff scroll by.

    (I forgot a "cd " when I tried to fix the commands the first time. Before that I had it wrong too.) I'm trying here...

    With the volume down button held down when you turn it on it goes to a screen similar to this?

    When you select FASTBOOT you get a red highlighted FASTBOOT where HBOOT is highlighted in blue in that photo?

    Similar to this?

    TheAtheistReverend Anybody want a peanut? VIP Member

    OK Good

    Now do you have the 4EXT recovery image? If not, I uploaded it to my DropBox Here.

    Put it in the same folder you're viewing in command prompt, the platform-tools one.

    ok now what
  23. TheAtheistReverend

    TheAtheistReverend Anybody want a peanut? VIP Member

    IN command prompt type "fastboot erase recovery" press enter

    Then "fastboot flash recovery 4xt-recovery.img" press enter

    Then from your phone reboot bootloader, then choose recovery on the phone HBOOT menu after it does the PG32 file check.

    TheAtheistReverend Anybody want a peanut? VIP Member

    I would go back to a NAND if you can. Or flash a known good rom. I don't remember how you got into this mess, but I think I had flashed a bad DL of a rom or something when it happened to me.
