    For the life of me, I can't seem to flash the stock recovery using my phone. I've used terminal, rebooted in recovery and tried to flash zip. Nothing works, just using my phone. I see a flash alternate recovery option in rom manager but idk how to activate it? Help?

    Download flash_image, unzip place on sdcard, place recovery image on sdcard
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. / # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system  
    3. / # cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image  
    4. / # chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image  
    5. / # mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system  
    6. / # flash_image recovery /sdcard/NAMEOFIMAGE.img  
    7.  / # reboot
    8.  
    replace NAMEOFIMAGE with the name of the image ofcourse, and if you get an out of memory error run flash_image again. YOU NEED TO DO THIS FROM A TERMINAL WITH ROOT, it can be a terminal on the phone, or adb

    The first command always spits out " Usage: mount [-r] [-w] ... and so on, like I didn't type it right, but I've done it so many times and double checked.

    Is your sdcard mounted or un-mounted?

    Alright maybe I haven't explained myself well enough. What I'm wanting to do is to be able to flash the recovery image without the assistance of a computer( aka terminal emulator, rom manager, or through the use of the clockwork recovery.) I know how to flash through a computer, and its super easy, but the ability to "1 click flash" back and forth between recoveries would be nice for ota's

    Might try ally RR but rename the stock image to the one Ally RR uses

    That mount command is correct. Double check your typing.

    I did it fine when I got home and used the computer. The whole point of this post was to see if there was an easier way to do it "phone only"

    Exactly what was suggested should have worked. I believe I've done it from the terminal emulator. Anyway, glad you got it working.
