Xrecovery "device or resource busy"

    Hi everyone,

    I've been trying to install the new bravia engine, fps uncap, xloud, and the updated timescape (all of which are in .zip files). I've successfully rooted my phone, and installed busybox from the market, however, when I go into the xrecovery menu and try to install "custom zip from sdcard", any .zip files I choose gets an error message saying:

    E: Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk-p1 (or /dev/block/mmcbkl0)
    (Device or resource busy)
    E: Can't mount SDCARD:bravia_engine.zip
    Installation aborted"

    After this, if I so much as press the home button to enter the category "Choose custom zip from sdcard", I get the same error message saying:

    E: Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk-p1 (or /dev/block/mmcbkl0)
    (Device or resource busy)
    E: Can't mount /sdcard

    Any help would be appreciated!

    You are using the wrong version of xRecovery.


    I had the same problem.

    If you use the xRecovery 0.3 then it gave me that problem, but when I used the 0.29 GBReady version (not the regular .29 version either)...no problem.

    You don't install the APK manually....and using the steps that I have listed, you wouldn't already have xrecovery installed.

    If you use a more updated version of xrecovery, then either xrecovery might not work or you won't be able to install any ROMs.

    I assume you have freshly reinstalled 2.3 with nothing on the phone.
