Im pulling the file until I get the issues resolved sorry guys.
Looks like a useful tool, but I could see this not working for some people if, like me, "adb remount" doesn't work for them. I'm not sure why, but it always says permission denied, whether I run as root or not.
hey that was really cool... thanks... ill use it when i update next time. bty i get that problem sometimes too... i just try it again then it works for some reason.
are you issuing adb root before the remount?
it took me a few tries to realize I had to do that
Yeah, took me a few tries too, then I ran adb root thinking oh that'll definitely fix it! but it didn't I don't know why. Might be specific to my current setup for some reason though.
Well hopefully after some people use it I can get some feedback and fix it if it isn't working correctly
Wow I cant wait to try that out.... No more typing code.... YOU ROCK!!!
try to have it do
ECHO Remounting /SYSTEM Read-Write
res\adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
then do an adb sync when done
that should help on ones with stock ramdisk where adb isn't root and remount fails and you could try an adb shell su too intstead of adb root.
Thanks for the tip.
I have been mucking around with it and have had issues getting adb shell su to work the way I want it to, if I pass that command the batch gets stuck in a shell and I cant get it to pass more commands. I know Im just missing something but I cant see what.
res\adb shell su
then the script will pause until the shell is exited from, I have tried just passing exit but dos is lame and waits for "adb shell su" to exit before proceeding
any ideas? If I can get adb shell su to work I can fix all these problems
Ok So is this why it didnt work for My Father-In-Law's Phone?
He wants the recovery system and he has a stock phone.
So I rooted it with Universal Androot. and then hooked it up via USB
and Ran your Batch file. It failed
Did I do somthing wrong or was it the program?
Cool idea for a Program by the way.
Right now its only works on about 50% of the setups out there, its nothing you did wrong, just a problem with the tool.
I would suggest using rom manager to flash for the time being if this tool didnt work, You can even flash AmonRA thru rom manager now.
Hmmm I can do it the old fashioned way for sure. I just was looking for the cheap way out. LOL
However the rom manager is a good idea.
Fixed it, the way its written now it should work on any setup as long as usb debugging is on and the sdcard is not mounted on the pc
So ignorant question.... Is this where you will download the New version?
Again thanks for taking the time to make this. You rock Brother.
Im pulling the file for now.
I am working on it but running into roadblocks. I need to find a way to get the batch file to relay commands thru the adb shell, I have tried opening a new cmd window to get su and continue in the original to no avail. The commands that require su need to be run from within the same session that requested them. So the search is on, Ill let you guys know when I get it working, I might have to resort to VB sorry about the premature release, Ill make sure to test it on more than one ally next time
Hey Props for the idea And I wish you best of luck on getting this running.
If you need any help testing I am your man.
I need a tester.
I spent all day remembering VB and putting this together
I dont have an ally so I cant test it, but it goes through all the motion s on my dinc
If someone can test this it would be great, just extract, plug phone in with USB DEBUGGING on and phone plugged in WITH adb drivers, select the top 3 settings then hit flash
just kidding. Though I am glad I rid myself of that language.
Just downloaded and ran it. Works great!! thanks alot, this will be coming in handy.
Well when my father in law gets back we will definately be testing this on his ally..
OK - weird but true story. I could not restore to Clockwork until I allowed it to restore RA over itself first. After that, I could switch between the two with ease.
It doesn't appear that it worked to flash the Stock recovery image with this. Also, once you flash recovery, you have to close Flasher and reopen it if you want to flash a different recovery or you get the error dialog in the attached file.
Glad that it finally works with my phone. So much easier than typing all those lines of code in that tiny terminal screen!
Yeah Im glad its starting to come together,
Im going to email myself the code today from work, as I have installed visual studio 2010 at home.
I plan on reworking the code, as right now it is written very poorly ( very reminiscent of an old qbasic program) adding a textbox that debug info spits into, adding a root button and if I can figure out how koush sends instructions to recovery I will add tools for flashing roms, kernels and more!
