Can someone confirm that this is currently only for the Desire, even though it sort of implies that it's for the Legend as well?

Thanks.

Very handy. Now I don't have to be at my usual PC to flash new ROMs!

Thanks Paul

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?


Just tried the process again but this time I was able to access the menu from recovery & flash the update zip, it seemed to work great. Thanks! :)

If there is a way to stop the above error though, or an explanation for why it appears, it would be nice to know.

My reason for asking is that when I tried it I got this:

-- Install from sdcard....
Finding update pack...
Opening update pack...
Veryfying update pack...
Installing update...
E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
(Status 0)
Installation aborted.

Someone earlier in this thread had the same error and the reply implied that it was because he'd tried it on a Legend.

Has anyone tried this successfully on a Legend?

Looks like updater-script never sets permissions for /sbin/nandroid-md5.sh

This is the same METHOD as used on the Legend - it isn't FOR the Legend. This is for the Desire, as it's in the Desire forum.

Thanks - that's what I was trying to clarify

1:53:10 AM Paul O'Brien: I can haz Legend one too?
1:53:16 AM Koushik K. Dutta: haha that is the legend one


That makes me think it actually is the same for Desire and Legend.

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.

So rom manager works fine on Desire?

Here's another potential fix for the md5:

REMEMBER TO RENAME IT TO update.zip BEFORE PUSHING TO YOUR /sdcard

Device node isn't there, just need to create it in /sbin/mkfstab.sh:

if [ ! -e /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 ]; then
	mknod -m 600 b /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 179 2
fi

By the way, do we need sbin/[ and sbin/[[ in the zip?

The device node missing is benign. The issue was that nandroid-md5.sh was not executable. That should be fixed in the newest zip I linked above your post. And no, those two don't need to be in the zip. I will remove them.
