it might give u that error if adb is open. unplug ur phone, open windows task manager, look for adb. if its there, kill the process. disable and then reenable tethering on ur phone, and then plug it back in. the driver can b picky sometimes if not done in the correct order.

if the adb interface thing came up, u should b good to go. open a command prompt, browse to your sdk folder, then to the folder platform-tools inside of it. once in platform-tools, type adb devices. if it comes up with a string of numbers or a mention of Venture, u should b good to go! the fact that it is giving u the option to safely remove the interface means that ur adb driver is installed. dont worry about the pdanet program. it doesnt have to b connected to the internet to use adb.

You shouldn't have to run PDANet anywhere, just install it on the computer so the driver gets installed and then ignore it entirely. Works on my XP computer.

He meant command prompt (it's technically not a DOS prompt and hasn't been since Windows ME), not Explorer.

Start -> Run
CMD <enter>
cd "\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools"
adb devices (you should see "List of devices attached" and one item in the list)
adb shell (now you are at a $ prompt, the linux command prompt running on the phone)
su (now you are at a # prompt, the elevated linux command prompt running on the phone)

I am obviously missing a step and i can't figure this out. I opened up the command prompt in DOS it starts with documents and settings instead of just C:\ I am drawing a blank can someone give me all the steps i am missing something .

i opened fastboot.exe and it says adbwinapi.dll was not found

once u have set up adb, u need to move the 2 files that u downloaded from the very first posting in this thread (the custom recovery files) into the platform-tools subfolder of your sdk folder. after that (with your phone plugged into your pc), you run the code that is posted in the beginning of this thread in your command prompt. make sure that you are in the platform-tools directory in your command prompt before running the code. if all goes well, cmw recovery should be installed after entering the last line of coding in ur command prompt.

so, first thing u need to do is to copy the flash_image and the cwm-recovery.img files to c:\program files\sdk-tools. after you do that, open command prompt, make sure in the command prompt that you are pointed to the c:\program files\sdk-tools directory, and run the EXACT coding in the first post of this thread. that SHOULD take care of your problems if u follow step by step.

edit: i should make it clear that the flash_image and cwm-recovery.img files do not go on the sd card at all. those files are put into the sdk folder, and the coding that was posted at the beginning of this thread tells adb to "push" the files to your phone's file system. after that, adb tells your phone to flash the boot.img file to the /boot partition. just make sure that flash_image and cwm-recovery.img is in the sdk folder, and follow the exact coding as it is written, and u should b fine.

adb push is done from the Windows command prompt, not from the phone's linux prompt. Any command beginning with 'adb' is run on your computer at a "C:\{whatever}\>" prompt.

C:\Program Files\sdk-tools>adb push flash_image /sdcard/android/data/flash_image

i wish someone would edit the instructions, so to tell to install sdk to the main directory of c:\\ so that the file path to run adb would be
cd c:\\android\platform-tools
i dont remember if i added the folder android as the root folder....but regardless. installing to the program folder only makes it entirely harder to manage all around.
all i know after some work, and READING the rest of the forum with help from google i was able to do it.
im not sure where sdk tools is, and if its the updated version of sdk....but yes, like they said you have to have the files you want to push in the platform-tools folder
find your platform tools folder, add the files you want to push, IE the recovery files, then navigate to it on command prompt, then
type adb devices (i dont know why this didnt work in your example)
then you should be able to push them to the correct directory.
like i said dude, this thread has a ton of replys, im sure someone has addressed this before. im just glad these guys are patient and will explain it again.

Just add it to your path. Then you don't need to CD anywhere.
Instructions from http://www.androidauthority.com/how-to-install-android-sdk-software-development-kit-21137/ :
Quote:
  1. Go to the Control Panel, and select the System Properties (Windows XP) or System (Windows Vista/7).
  2. Select the Advanced settings. (On Windows XP: Click on the Advanced tab. On Windows Vista/7: Click on Advanced system settings on the left.)
  3. Click on Environment Variables.
  4. Under the “System variable” section, you will look for “Path”. Double-click on it.
  5. In the “Variable values” section, add at the very end the location of the tools & package-tools folder, with a semicolon separating these two paths from the rest. (e.g. %SystemRoot%;C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools;C:\android-sdk-windows\tools)

I had placed the recovery files in sdk first and it didnt work so i downloaded the mini-sdk "sdk-tools" that allowed me to get as far as i have and the files are not found. so now i am simply stumped. I took a nap ate some dinner and i am just lost.

No. I have read that post and every single post in this tread two or three times. i have been running it from my computer since i realized i wasn't supposed to turn on USB storage and only needed usb debugging enabled. i have to have pdanet turned on on my phone before i connect to avoid an error. and i get further with pdanet turned on my computer as well is it supposed to say "not found" or is it supposed to be blank"

will i really brick my phone if i download the two files to my computer connect my phone and move the two files to the sdcard and then use ROM toolbox to simply move them to the data/local/tmp directory with root browser?
and then while still connected run fastboot.exe on my computer. while in the adb shell mode from the command prompt

there is definately a chance. rom manager is not compatible with our phones right now. i dont understand why you would want to do it that way. u would b taking a bunch of extra and unnessessary steps. the adb method still isnt working?

no it isnt working. i deleted and redownloaded everything moved the SDK AND sdk-tools fileS from proGRAM files to c:/.

I continued through with the commands regardless of the "file not found" response and nothing.
i get get the error HTC sync error = -1 but that is with pdanet turned on my phone.

in command prompt it doesn't read the phone at all and the list is blank.

why should that have to be edited? you are talking about moving two or three folders. if you really wanted to be lazy you could just hold shift and right click in a window, the option to open command prompt will be there. ergo destroying any "hardness" of what you are talking about.

or just setup the path properly like divine pointed out

"successfully wrote block at blah balh blah" i can't copy and paste.
i didnt' copy your code exactly i used TEMP instead of TMP. And doing adb device before devices helped without it being tethered with PDAnet. that was a useless download.
so now i can use ROM toolbox to install my personal ROM? That is safe right?

u need to go back and double check ur spelling on everything and try again. i believe the first big error was pointing it to cwm-recovery.imp (instead of .img).

I know i misspelled i exited and started again but i didnt exit the prompt so i couldn't copy it all and paste the 9 or 10 successfully wrote block at 19...... and partition created text when i was done. i have created a back-up and i had the same recovery screen as the one in the picture posted in this thread. i am going to try to isolate the mobile id wallpapers and save the files of the ones i like before flashing my ROM I put together last night.

Dude just put your rom.zip on your sdcard and flash through cwm. That's what cwm is for!!

rom manager does not work with this phone. as brandon said, cwm is the best way to go. im not trying to be rude here, but if i were u, i would definitely start back at square one and relearn all the basics a little more in depth before trying to tackle a custom rom. if u needed that much help to figure out the basics of flashing a custom recovery via adb and flashing a rom, chances are unlikely that u will build a successful custom rom. all of the research is out there. google is ur friend!

stop....just stop before you brick your phone and have to buy a new one....we can't help you if your not precise and thorough in your attempts to do things on your phone.
and if you must keep going, for the love of god LISTEN....ROM MANAGER IS NOT GOING TO WORK, IN FACT IT WILL BREAK YOUR PHONE.
cwm recovery, works great for the rest of us. you can do anything from there, flash a new rom perhaps! back up a current os! wipe system/cache/dalvik so you can flash a new rom!
i guess i dont know what to say man, we ARE trying to help you, but what your doing is going to make you very sad one day. as far as i know, there is not a "rom manager app" that will work for this phone.

Yeah ROM manager honestly don't work good for supported phones! Its just a useless app most certianly in my opinion. Much easier to do things the old fashioned way!

Default I did just fine

I have successfully built and installed my own ROM. the way that the process was being explained to me to create ADB was not precise and required a lot of inference on my part considering I had never done this before EVER. A few typing errors didn't brick my phone. I do Appreciate the patience but more thorough explanations were needed for someone who is doing this whole process for the first time. I have never worked with the android platform before the day I started working on this flashing project. I rooted the phone on my own and i was able to edit some files on my own. I didnt' even use the code as posted because that didn't work. Now those that come after me can read the thread and see the actual code. and PDANET WAS USELESS


SO again thank you to those who were patient with me. and to those that obvious were not present during the process please keep your comments to yourself.

Where did you find the driver for the phone? You need the Android SDK USB driver plus the phone driver, and the only way I know of to get the phone driver is to install (and then never run) PDANet.

pdanet just installs the android adb driver. pdanet needs the ADB driver to be able to tether internet, so it's automatically installed with the application. think of the pdanet driver as a generic device driver for your phone. there is no other "phone driver" necessary. if u install the SDK tools (there is no need to download the usb driver in SDK manager), and then install pdanet (when it prompts u in the install, choose the "other" option when it shows u a list of devices), you're good to go with adb, fastboot, etc...

The ADB driver for this phone is what I was saying with "phone driver". I'm just wondering where he got the ADB driver without PDANet, or if maybe he just didn't realize that he got it from PDANet.

I thought the USB driver listed in SDK Manager was also necessary. Thanks for clearing that bit up.

nope. the google usb driver in the sdk is just another generic adb driver. i never had luck with it tho. also, if i remember right, theres a driver pack called universal naked drivers, or somethin like that, that i had success with on the venture. all the same thing tho... generic adb.

there is no actual adb driver specifically made for the venture. we have had to rely on universal drivers, like the ones pdanet installs.

Would someone be willing to walk me through this? I'm completely new to this, I don't know anything. None of this is making sense to me, I don't even know where to begin. I downloaded the two files, but what do I do with them? Reading through the thread, I see that there are several programs that I need to download... I'm so confused. Will someone please help me?

I have the two files listed at the beginning. What do I do now?

ok. u already downloaded the 2 files at the beginning... on ur pc, download pdanet (look for a link in the thread) and install. next, download android sdk and install (link also in thread). pay attention to the folder u installed sdk to. after u r done installing the sdk, copy the first 2 files u downloaded (the recovery files) into the "platform-tools" subfolder of ur sdk folder. after that, open a command prompt, point it to the platform-tools subdirectory of your sdk folder, and copy each line of code (listed at the beginning of this thread) one at a time into command prompt. if u followed directions closely and there were no issues, cwm should now be flashed.

Default Help flashing recovery

I am having trouble trying to flash this recovery the way u guys are saying. I have read and re-read every post. I placed the two files into the folder called platform-tools. That is right? Now when i try to adb push the file with the first command from the abov directions and it tells me cannot stat 'flash_image' : no such file or directory.. I don't get it. I am new to flashing recoveries so any help appreciated. Google has been no help to me as i continue my quest. Thanks in advance.

the process is all there. just read every step and do it as you read. are you pointing the command prompt to platform-tools in your sdk folder with the "cd" command before trying the adb command?

Copy and paste what you see when this happens so we can see what leads up to it.

Ive never flashed or used adb before because i never had to. I need to know how to point adb to c:/adnroid/sdk/platform-tools which is where i have the two downloaded files.
