That looks a whole lot easier!
Am I right to think it's just a case of installing this app on a rooted Desire, flash the clockworkmod recovery from within the app and away you go?
Can't make out from the vids if it downloads pre-specified roms for you (selectable in the menu) or if you have to have the rom on your SD card named as update.zip - or both?
Thanks, looks like this could save a lot of time!
So that's another way of rooting phone? I'm confused by ClockworkMod name... =\

Hmm so many updates and I still can't use this properly. Just want the power button to confirm and I'll be glad. Very glad.
when I download the program it is called recovery-clockwork-bravo and there are no update.zip and if I just rename it my phone can´t find it......
what aam I doing wrong?????
Sounds extremely exciting and wish it was working for me . I understand that once "recovery-clockwork-bravo.zip" is downloaded it should be renamed as "update.zip" and placed in the sd root folder - is this correct? When trying to "Apply sdcard:update.zip" i just get the opening update package/verifying update package an then:
E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
I guess I must be doing something wrong?
Note: The recommended install method for fake-flash is now 'ROM Manager' on the Android Market.
This morning, Koush and I have been working on / stumbling through getting recovery running on a Desire without using a PC for devices rooted with a test image. The same technique also applies to the Legend. Presenting...
Fake-flash using a similar concept to the original root method, it launches a recovery image from the test image recovery, but instead of pushing the files from a PC, the files are extracted from an update.zip on the SD card. Here's how it works...
When you want to launch the recovery image
- Download the fake-flash update zip from one of the links below
- Copy the update.zip to the root of your SD card (the name MUST remain as update.zip)
- Turn on your device with 'volume down' pressed and select 'Recovery'
- When the exclamation mark appears, press and hold 'volume up' then press 'power'
- Select the second option, 'Apply sdcard:update.zip
- That's it, ClockworkMod recovery should launch!
Just to caveat this initial release, we've yet to carry out extensive testing and you are constrained somewhat by the limitations of the stock kernel (e.g. no support for EXT4).
That's it for now... enjoy... i'll update this post as further advances are made. If you'd like to support Koush's work, consider buying 'ROM Manager Premium' from the Android Market.
