    put phone in ftm, then use adb fastboot flash to flash recovery: ex:

    adb.exe fastboot flash recovery recovery.img


    then to boot into recovery u press POWER and VOL up
    please keep me informed, i wanna know if this works..xD

    without a custom recovery we cant do that right now.. which is why we're working on one... so far the only way is using adb fastboot. Ima try rebuilding the recovery, i think i got the architecture wrong when building it, did the same thing sebastian did, built it for armeabi instead of armeabi-v7a

    ok, I rebuilt the recovery using the right specs, lets try this again...=3


    same disclaimer and all..


    recovery.img

    Just in case something goes wrong, u can flash the stock recovery:

    please leave feedback, and also when leaving feedback, please describe the issue thoroughly, that way I can understand whats wrong

    I'll test it out when I get home to my PC. About 3.5 hrs.

    Just so everyone knows even if it fails miserably it wont brick your phone. Just reflash stock recovery and your GTG. The hardest part to all this is getting the drivers to work. After that its super easy.

    Yea, your right, especially when I dont have a warp to pull all the drivers out of... Using the kernel from the b08 update that u posted on forums to do all this, so hopefully it all works

    you need to download the drivers from the OP, the original post, I'll repost them here if need be:

    hopefully those work for you, there are suggestions further up in the thread also such as this one from woodstock:

    I have wondered for a while if these instructions by Woodstock for the prl work would solve the adb driver issues : open dialer and enter *983*87274# and choose "AT"

    I wonder if some phones come shipped in an odd mode, I couldn't get connected until after I updated to b08
