    Hi all,

    I was trying to change the boot image while running. I did it with the following commads (in adb shell):

    Code (Text):
    1. cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd/mtd2
    2. cat newimage.img > /dev/mtd/mtd2
    Apparently, it didn't work. But now, when I try to use tools like flash_image, I receive the following error messages:

    I tried erase using fastboot, and flash image, and I still get:

    What does it mean? Did my device damaged? :( :(

    Never have use adb so I have no clue. Have you tried posting over at XDA? They may have more of a clue as to what you did. I would try a nandroid restore and if you didn't do a nandroid well then try reflashing the rom.

    If your talking about the SDCARD check in windows

    chkdsk x: /f /r

    That will work for the FAT on the SD Card

    He tried to change a boot image. (Boot area of phone) which being a native linux format or even a yaffs will not work.

    If he however is talking about the SDCARD then chkdsk may or may not fix the error he will need testdisk to fix that. I have no clue if testdisk can be pushed to the phone in adb or not and even if it would work there.

    I didn't realize he was talking about a location on the phone, thought it was something to do with the card... :D
