    Dear all,
    I'm trying to upgrade my device to Android 2.2
    I could find both the recovery.zip file both the android2.2.zip file
    for my device (fake names, to keep the discussion at the most general level).
    Any attempt I've made to flash them on it failed though.

    As far as I have understood I need to have Rom Manager and Clockwork Mode Recovery installed.
    I then need to flash the recovery img file so that is correctly recognized by Clockwork
    and can reboot the tablet into recovery mode.

    In theory (but I never got to this stage) when the recovery mode is enabled
    I should have an option to apply the update.

    This seems quite a general way to upgrade an Android device.

    Could someone write a step by step guide that explains how to make Clockwork
    Recovey recognize the recovery.zip file and how to flash the android2.2.zip update?
    Possibly could you explain how to do this using only adb ?

    When such a guide is ready and tested it might also be made sticky so that everyone can find
    it at first glance.

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Cheers, -Luca

    I think the reason there isn't a general how to root thread is because it can vary from phone to phone and you would be in deep trouble if you were to flash something that was not meant for your phone.

    Certainly this doesn't fit in the category of Android Applications so I'm going to move it over to your root section where you should be able to get specific help for your device.

    Hi bluenova, actually I wasn't talking at all about rooting the phone/tablet.
    I was taking that for granted.
    And I specified that you need to have found the images that are suitable for your device. The problem is that after you've found the right roms it's not clear how to flash them. And that should be done in a standard way through adb, isn't it?
    In any case I'm sorry if I didn't chose the right category.
    Thanks for your help,
    Cheers.
