    Just means the flash img is not in the right directory, or you typed it wrong..

    Just to make sure, you are not typing the pounds sign right? It should be your prompt instead of the $sign other than that check the root off your sd card when you used the adb push maybe it do didnt get pushed on the card.

    "no such file or directory" means that the filename is missing or spelled wrong. If the OP had actually included the prompt sign with the ./ I believe the error would have been something like "permission denied."

    So yeah, the OP should redo the adb push command to make sure the file gets copied to the proper location.

    Any way to root 2.2 without losing data? I just set up my phone the way I want it but would like to root it to get rid of Sprint bloatware.
