The patched Hero recovery image from Cyanogen is super-useful, but having to boot it up via fastboot all the time is a pain... so why not install it on your device permanently?


Is there a way to restore the default recovery image?

When I restore factory defaults it always displays the patched recovery image.

I want to send back my phone to HTC because mobile internet is not working fine.
I don't now if it is a problem that I installed the patched recovery image. I did not installed any new Rom or Radios yet.

I guess using this ( http://android.modac...-the-new-hboot/ ) and an original recovery image.

Just use HTC RUU firmware then you can get original boot back

now here comes the man whose mobile phone hates him soooooo much...

phone:
- htc hero / sim- or netlocked by t-mobile UK

history:
- (i can't install the rom i want, because i have read that i had to install this patched recovery image first)
- if i'll connect the mobile phone to usb, it's detected like an usb-stick (for saving data), so i can't run the program "adb", it always tells me "device not found"
- i can't install the named drivers for htc because there are no drivers missing - phone is just in usb-storage mode i think
- i can't change anything on the phone with my hands, because the netlock doesn't let me in without a valid sim-card

and:
"unlock-now" has send me the money back, because they couldn't find out the right key for unlocking, so PLEEEEEAAASSEE help me :-(

As previously mentioned in this thread you need to have USB debugging enabled;

have you got USB debugging ticked? It needs to be

Setting-Appliactions-Development-USB debugging.


Thanks

Hi all,

Trying to install this on a UK Orange model Hero, and when I enter the second command I repeatedly get the message:

ERROR: Unable to create a plug-in (e00002c7)

... until I cancel the command. This is on a Mac if that matters.

Can anyone assist?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi all :)




Ok,,  im a bit of a complete newcomer to modding and customizing phones and the like...  and through some miracle i managed to get The patched Hero recovery image from Cyanogen installed permanently on my Hero (G2 Touch)




Just 1 quick question..  does this mean my phone is now rooted? or is that a completely different thing altogether?.... 




Now if i could only pluck up the courage to install the custom rom.. lol..    Which was my other question actualy..   does the phone need to be rooted before i can install Modaco`s rom?




Many thanks in advance,,,  please be gentle.. its a whole new world for me :)

After it reboots into bootloader run the cmds from top of first page make sure your recovery img is on your sd card though. Or use flashrec a program that puts the recovery image onto the device without using cmd prompt

Hey all. So I've got the new Hero for Sprint, and I'm trying to load up one of the recovery images in the hopes I can get a backup for someone to start cooking with. I got to the bootloader, but I get the following error from the console:

bash-3.2$ ./adb shell reboot bootloader
bash-3.2$ ./fastboot boot cm-hero-recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'... FAILED (remote: not allow)

Any thoughts?

Sounds like you can't load the recovery img yet just like the new t-mobile Rom over here in the u.k.

The patched Hero recovery image from Cyanogen is super-useful, but having to boot it up via fastboot all the time is a pain... so why not install it on your device permanently? :D

To do so...

- download this file and extract it to your PC or mac
- open a command prompt to the directory containing the extracted files
- type the following commands (prefix each command with ./ if you're on a mac)

adb shell reboot bootloader (wait for device to reboot into bootloader)
fastboot boot cm-hero-recovery.img
adb shell mount /sdcard
adb push cm-hero-recovery.img /sdcard/cm-hero-recovery.img
adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/cm-hero-recovery.img
Job done!

Now if you pull the battery and turn on the device while holding down 'home', you should get the patched recovery image. Handy! :P

Ok I am a complete noob when it comes to this and I am trying to follow the instructions. Obviously I am doing something wrong.

I am using Vista 32bit
I have downloaded the file and extracted it.
I connect my Hero to my pc and run adb shell reboot bootloader
However I was getting "error: device not found"
So I decided to try activiating the HTC Sync.
This seemed to work and it would reboot into the bootloader.
However after that I could not send anymore commands as it would lose the connection and say "error: device not found"
What am I doing wrong?


E:\Android\Modoco\patched recovery\Hero>adb shell reboot bootloader

E:\Android\Modoco\patched recovery\Hero>fastboot boot cm-hero-recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'... FAILED (remote: not allow)

E:\Android\Modoco\patched recovery\Hero>adb shell mount /sdcard
error: device not found


Thanks for you help.
