Can I ask two newbie questions. To do this does my phone have to be rooted? From this recovery can I flash other roms?

Try to download the update.zip again from the mirror...

Tried, and with a different sdcard (the one that actually came with the Desire) and still the same error(s).

Interestingly, when I first go into stock recovery I get:
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

Does that have any significance?

This is what i get... :)

PS: i have NOT rootet my device so far its all original 1.21.405.2 Firmware


I think this is your problem, rooting changes the keys to test keys so you so this production keys the signature validation would be expected to fail

Makes me want to buy the desire and not wait for the evo to come to Europe.


O/T, but a handy tip for you - the Evo will *never* come to Europe.

Why?

Two reasons!

First of all it is a CDMA device and there are no CDMA cellular networks in Europe.

Secondly, the 4G radio is WiMAX - as far as I'm aware, no European cellular networks have any plans to implement 4G via WiMAX, and will instead use LTE.

Regards,

Dave

This *MIGHT* work to flash 1.22 (I am stuck with 1.22 on my phone and can't root). But when trying to use the update.zip I get: "E:failed to verify whole-file signature" "E:signature verification failed".

Is there any way around this that may allow rooting for 1.22 roms?

How reliable is the nandroid backup and restore in this new recovery mode? I notice the menu entries are slightly different to any of the previous recovery screens and also the nandroid backup I'm currently doing gives a more detailed view of what's being backed up instead of just dots that go on for 3 lines.

Otherwise though, everything seems to be working just fine.

If it's as reliable at nandroid and of course flashing ROMs then I'll use this method from now on :)

Many thanks!

Just tried to follow the instructions from the first post but I get an exception when I press the volume up & power button after it is in recovery, the error says: E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

Just noticed that the first post says this is only for devices rooted with a test image, what is that exactly? I am currently on MCR 3.1 with an overclocked kernel, should this work for me or not?

Do I need to be rooted for this to work?

I get the following error when I try this on a non-rooted 1.21 Desire.

E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

-- Install from sdcard...

Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to verify whole-file signature

Hi

My guess is that you first have to format the card from the PC recovery.. then copy the zip to the card and do the ROM upgrade.

This is a nice tool for me at least.. yesterday I flashed rom like 20 times during testing :)

Brilliant, works finde.
Nandroid backup has a problem (sd-ext), because I have noch ext SDCard partition to backup. Would be a good idea to give Nandroid the option "Backup with or without ext SDCard partition".
