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