No...I only tried the newest one. Is it still the one that is in the original link?

UPDATE: Still no joy here......lol I still get the "Cannot load 'recovery-clockwork-streak.img' error when I double click on the file in Win 7.

UPDATE 2: I now have a superuser permissisions icon showing since I used Superboot..... still the error with the recovery img tho!

I try the above and get image downloaded .... I assume everything is ok..

But I cant get into the recovery mode.

I've copied the upgrade zip file and called it Update.zip and put it in the sd card root.

I get a blank screen and nothing happens when I execute the upgrade.apk on SD car

Any help appreciated.

Awesome news,

I'm looking into getting a Streak on a data only plan with o2 and I suppose the first thing I wanted to know was can you load custom ROMs

Thanks Paul

Does the AppMarket "ROM Manager" by ClockworkMod work on the Streak?

Yes, I've tried that and get to the first menu, choose upgrade from SD and.... nothing just a blank screen.

(upgrade.zip is located in the root of the SD card)

Tried using boot manager and tried boot to loader, boot to recovery, all they do is reboot the device!

Basically, I have root and that's it

I must be missing something along the way

I can flash and rebuild an iPhone in minutes, this thing is driving me nuts!!

[update] 22:27

started from scratch.

Now I've got into nandroid and done backup

An error saying it can't find MISC - is this critical? before I cause any damage?

Black screen I can get, lol

Thats prob where I was going wrong. I downloaded all the files again (without the 2.x) and I'm getting a bit further now.

How do I tell if the ROM has installed correctly?

cheers

I'm getting the same error as JimiB - following the instructions on linux 8.04 and getting the <waiting for device> message in the terminal window.

Any ideas? Can I debug this?

*edit* ok - helps if you do su before executing the script!

Also make sure the device its being recognized by usb, I think I did adb start server to get mine playing in lucid.

I continue to have problems with both of these builds and I hope someone can help me.

I tried flashing Paul's custom ROM from the kitchen, which doesn't boot for me. No idea why - but that's another story. Before flashing the ROM, I installed the custom recovery image and I did not root my device. Or is rooting necessary before flashing a new ROM?

So, I was trying to go back to back to the stock ROM and I tried both builds, the 3883 and 4399. With both, the same thing happens. They install and boot fine. Everything seems to be working as normal, until I go to the market and sign in to my Google account. The problems unfold as follows:

- Upon entering my login details in the Market, it is verifying my account and I then get the message that some background task has crashed. This brings me back to the login screen in the Market and it appears as if my login has not worked. But it has. It is starting to download e-mails.

- If I close the Market by going to the home screen and then go to the Market again, it works fine and I can download and install applications, including the ones I have purchased.

- Looking at the data sync with Google, it shows e-mails and calendar syncing fine, but for Contacts is says "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly". But of course it isn't back shortly.

- Launching the Contact app produces a crash (process com.dell.addressbook has stopped working).

There are two things I find strange about this:

(1) Is the contacts app a Dell application, not native Android? Can this cause my problem?

(2) I have exactly the same thing happen on both builds. Could I have messed up something that is so deep in the system that is survives complete wipes and ROM flashes?

Btw, I have done complete wipes and factory resets before flashing each ROM.

One thing I still want to try is to flash the original 4399 build from the Dell website. But because it is a *.pkg file, I can't flash it with having the custom recovery installed. Unfortunately, Paul hasn't posted the original recovery yet, of which he says he has a backup.

I would be most grateful for any comments or ideas.

Many thanks

Sadly that now happens to me, too. Exact the same.

I tried several PB ROMs or ownbaked Roms, all had this error. Now I've gone back to the stock ROM and the contact app crashes everytime. I never had that with the stock ROM before, and actually I never experienced this ever with any of my past android devices. Never ever.

I did a wipe a lot of times, nothing helps.

HELP plz, without contacts (you can't add, sync, check any contacts) the phone is useless.

Thx man.

I read somewhere that that the old 38xx Version is much faster than the new one?

I only had 4399 installed, so I can't compare it. Can anyone say smth. about it?
