    I've done it... In fact that's the only way i have really done it...

    it should go
    the easiest way would just rename the recovery image
    and put it on the root of the sd card then type
    into the terminal emulator.
    Make sure ur rooted and have superuser installed as well

    Are you using CM7? Verify flash_image is on your phone. On one of my phones I had to d/l first, install into system/bin and then set permissions. Once I did that, I got a different error msg containing the word "stop" but found it had flashed successfully. There is also a thread devoted to this topic.

    yeah i'm trying it on miui however i have a friend that just bought a triumph he doesn't have a pc to actually install the cwm recovery through, i believe its called download mode, so he asked me if there's any way to do it on his phone.

    i figured if i could do it on mine, it might work on his.

    it seems that it all depends on the rom or maybe even kernel you're using. if you could tell me what you mean by install into system/bin, like just copy the "flash_image" file not the recovery right?

    sorry for double posting but i do still need help I've installed the flash_image file and gave it the necessary permissions. however when i go into the terminal and type

    $su
    #flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

    i gives me this:
    error scanning partitions

    any ideas or clues as to how I can fix this
     
  6. wow. on the triumph, you dont have to do ANY of that.

    just boot the phone into download mode, connect to a PC, and the internal storage will show the same way a flash drive does. just drag the new recovery, rename it to recovery.img, rename the old one something else, and when the phone reboots it thinks the custom recovery is the normal one.

    no adb, no terminal, no hassle, no fuss.

    Yeah there is no partition on our phone lankest recovery which is why it can't flash it. Flash image won't work on our phones!

    The recovery lies on a fat partition at /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 that must first be mounted as a fat partition then the recovery.Ingram copied o er to this partition. Easiest way is download mode and it mounts it on the computer, or place your recovery in a cwm fladhabke zip I have made for this phone and flash it. No need to make it any more complicayed than it is. That is the way you mess stuff up!!
