    Hi Guys,

    I am having a problem with rooting my G1, For the last hour I have been stuck at the point where I have downgraded the phone to the RC7 successfully and am trying to press enter twice and type the telnetd.

    At this point I'm not sure if it should give me a sign that it has worked but I then goto telnet command prompt which is showing some questions marks them the # sign but when I type in the commands from the instructions the following happens: Typed exactly as it appears on my screen

    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    # #cd sdcard

    # #flash_image recovery recovery.img

    No such file or directory

    # #flash_image recovery/sdcard/recovery.img

    usage: flash_image partition file.img


    # #cat recovery.img > /system/recovery.img

    recovery.img: No such file or directory
