    I just posted this in the all things root thread but I'm not sure how often people re-open that thread. Sorry for the repeat.

    I am trying to go back to 100% stock. My phone is back to 1.5 but I am getting stuck at replacing the recovery image. When I type in the command it says:

    unknown partition 'recovery.img'
    error: cannot determine image filename for 'recovery.img'

    When i do the adb shell test it comes up with a $ and when i type su it says
    SU: permission denied

    Now my root job was pretty amateur so maybe I never fully installed the recovery image? I really don't know what I'm doing so any help would be appreciated :)

    Well, you didn't say what command you are trying, so I'll just guess that it was fastboot; if that is the case, it is evident from the error message that you did not use the correct number of arguments on the command line.

    If you restored to a factory 1.5, then there is no "su" command on the phone to be run. (The "permission denied" error message is a red herring - one of the joys of working with Unix command shells.)

    If you don't know what you did to your phone, then neither do we.

    Perhaps this thread would be of some use to you.
