I am getting the same error as Xav. After I flash, I get a constant reboot loop.

Checksum error with the actual boot.

Any ideas?

Checksum will fail, always.

If you can provide me a log, I might be able to fix it.

Sure. I'll have to try flashing it again though. I was thinking of reverting back to stock, but I can't figure out how to get rid of Malez.

I'll tear a Linux box apart, but smartphones, even ones based (although loosely) on Linux confuse the crap out of me.

I was thinking of moving to the Official 2.2 froyo but...

I am also wanting to eventually Root my phone so I can drop a terminal on there as well as something like the Metasploit framework. I'm not exactly sure how far they've gotten on getting something like that working on an android, but I know they have been making progress. But I digress.

For now, 2.2 Froyo - official FIDO.

flash 4.002.14, then the Fido official ROM, if you wanna Malez it you gotta hope that my boot.img works lol. If it doesn't I'll recompile it and you can try something new

Not entirely sure what metasploit is though.

Awesome. I'll try that tonight. Metasploit is an exploitation framework for Penetration Testing. It's a work thing :D

I just installed the malez recovery, however, like the previous poster, I got an infinite boot loop after i flash the update.zip.

How do I fix this?

Can I just use any custom rom out there and flash it rather than using the update.zip?

Sorry for the noob question :D

Okay, I'm going to try to fix this for you guys tomorrow. I think I know what needs to change. Also, this is NOT required for other custom roms, only Rogers 2.2 Official.

After I install malez recovery, can I just install any custom rom? What is the update.zip for?

Also, can I flash the stock Rogers 2.2 using malez? Where can I get the file?

Sorry for my endless questions

You can install any custom rom yes. My update.zip is to make sure that on the Rogers rom, that Malez doesn't get deleted every time you reboot your phone.

The ROM I have posted (search for my topics), that is the official Rogers ROM, however it's modded (just the installer script) to install from Malez.

I am attempting get to stock 2.1 so i can install rogers ver. 2.2. I have gotten to the point where the instructions say I have to remove Malez-recovery. The phone boots up ok but I get a bad check if I try to update to 2.2. The problem I am having is the remote restore of the recovery.img. I managed to run adb shell then open malez. then i am stuck as to what I should do. Could some do a walk-through of this part? thanks

I can confirm that this fix is working on a Fido Acer Liquid E running stock 2.2 Froyo. I am currently flashing it to LCR-F 2.0 now that malez' recovery works due to this fix :lol:

Hi Everybody,

I just used the Fido stock ROM (2.2 froyo : 4.004.04_PA_FIDO) back after a LCR 1.2.

The flash has been ok in Malez.

I'm just unable to use tethering (wifi or USB) : process com.android.settings error.

Could this be because I still have baseband : A1-05.01.05 ?

Maybe the fido rom (is not an EMEA) has a pb with this baseband ?

Anyone ?

Thanks

Vixdee

I have the Rogers Liquid E and I'm on the official 2.2. Malez 6.1 installs fine but when I boot into recovery I get the triangle with the ! in it with the Android dude. If I press the home button it takes me into the stock recovery. Will it work if I try to install the modified Malez' recovery you have posted? Thanks

Ok... so it's been months and I have yet to upgrade to Froyo. Every time I try, I either get an error on the actual flash or it hangs on the Android boot screen. Thank goodness for Nandroid's recovery.

Could someone give me a step by step on getting back to Factory? I'm retarded when it comes to Androids :)
