    guys I did a factory data restore on my samsung galaxy i7500(not L).
    after that it rebooted into recovery and showed a msg
    the archive: rectools.tar.gz was not found on sd card
    this small recovery ............. blah blah blah

    guys I did the following steps-
    1. connected my phone to pc
    2. already installed all the drivers needed
    3. in cmd prompt gave the commands >
    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push RECTOOLS.tar.gz /sdcard/
    it shows me
    failed to copy

    I had the same just now.

    Only solution, after trying for hours to get ADB or fastboot to work as a solution, I had a different solution: I took my regular smartphone (Nokia E72), removed its SD card. Took the SD card from the Galaxy and put it in the E72; then connected the E72 to my PC, copied the files needed (rectools and the things I wanted to install - the last nightly from Drakaz), put it back in the Galaxy, and it worked.

    It did take 4 attempts before it went into the recovery (the first times I got the 'mini-recovery' thing again), but after a couple of tries it went through. Now I have 2.3.4 installed and, it seems, working quite well.

    The only downside is you need another smartphone, or an external micro-SD reader for your PC...
