    I have a Sprint Hero that I have rooted and in trying to do a Nandroid backup have found myself unable to get to recovery mode. I hold Home, hit power and the system hangs on the initial HTC screen until I remove the battery. After that the phone will boot into the regular OS just fine.

    Now I am kinda stuck here, without recovery mode I can't even restore my phone back to stock can I? It's not urgent since my phone works normally otherwise, but any help on this would be appreciated.

    EDIT:
    It appears that I was not flashing correctly. Now all fixed. Hopefully see you on the other side in wokring order.



    I'm having a similar problem.

    Using the instructions here http://androidforums.com/all-things...nstall-custom-rom-backup-more.html#post454774

    I'm coming from a HTC Hero 1.5 Orange phone.
    I've rooted phone (I've tested this by downloading an app that needs root access and it works with no problems.)
    I copied the file recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img from [Recovery ROM] [07-Mar-2010] RA-hero-v1.6.2 - xda-developers
    I've installed flashrec and backed up my ROM

    Then when I get to step 7 to boot in to the recovery screen I get a black background with a phone and large triangle with exclamation mark in side it show on the screen.

    What have I not done correctly?

    .
     
  5. I think you have to push the recovery image instead of just copying it, but i might be wrong. ccapaso has a thread on here or xda somewhere where it explains the recovery thing in detail.

    thanks. i have an evo now and totally forgot how to get my hero into recovery.

    i am having a weird issue with superuser permissions though. i tried to use ROM manager to reboot into recovery and SU force closed then ROM manager did as well. i havent powered this phone on in months so i dont know if need an updated superuser permissions apk. i am running some version of Fresh (fresh on evo as well ;) )

    Just do it manually by powering on while holding the home key.

    I got this from another post. Download the ROM Manager App (little clockwork orange gear with a fedora on it) and flash the Clockwork Recovery (first option) and use their recovery. I also gave it superuser permission too.
