Hello everyone,

Thanks Paul for this and the rest for their input. I got a Streak 00-EU unlocked from Dell. Bricked the phone the first time(1st stuck on Dell logo-2nd black screen forever), started reading up some pages and flashed the pants off the Streak with a cocktail of recoveries. Somehow when tryin to get back to stock 1.6 my Streak was unbricked and now i'm on 2.1.

Differences are awesome in this 2.1(i picked 8105), feels like how the phone is suppose to perform at the least bit. Only that now it doesn't show "3G" anymore for my local carrier(i'm from Malaysia), instead it shows "H" which i think stands for HSDPA. Googled it and i believe that "H" is actually "3G" in the EU, correct me if i'm wrong please.

Now on to superboot and rooting cuz i would like to change the O2 splash :lol:

Thanks again to everyone, especially Paul.

OK, re: the recovery overwrite problem, do the following from a command prompt...

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system && rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh && mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
exit
exit
...and you should be set (testing myself now!)

Hi I recently joined the forum and downloaded a cooked Rom from the Kitchen, when i followed the above I can no longer get into Bootloader, nor can i find the install-recovery.sh file, any idea how to fix this, im worried its now bricked :lol:

Having said that its still running the previous r1 of the ROM I just cant get back into Bootloader or flash a new rom!

Please help!

I've renamed and moved the install-recovery.sh to a folder on the sdcard,
that way I've got a dead-easy way return to stock recovery, in case a new update.pkg appears when I'm nowhere near a computer :lol:


Hello Fards or anyone else who can help, I was wondering and im a total noob but i have to hope this works, I was trying to update based on the cooked rom in this post and while following the instructions from the r1 post somehow managed to stop my streak from getting into bootloader.

Have had a quick look around I cant find the install-recovery.sh anywhere, do you know how i can get this back or do you have copy of one i can put, hopefuly that will fix it but nothing else seems to work.

Just for some background its a rooted dell streak with 2.1 r1 installed, baseband GAUSB1A120321-EU, Kernel 2.6.29-perf
Build 6941

Ive tried using rom manager to flash clockwork recovery and reboot into recovery, ive tried rebooting with the camera and ive tried restoring a backed up rom.

I even tried flashing the old 2.1 r1 rom i had previously used but I just get a blank screen

The streak still loads normally under 2.1 and I can still enter recovery mode, i just cant get back into bootloader... Is it bricked? B)

Please please any help would be really appreciated, having just joined especially to use Pauls r2 rom I really hope this can get fixed

Thanks

My first post...

I received a new unlocked US Streak from Dell on Monday. My first dabble into Android, but I loaded the stock recovery and the O2 2.1 image and all is working well.

Not sure what the 00 and stuff is but the part number, if that helps is CN-00GTVD-74261-08Q-01CT-A00

I am perfectly willing to mess with the device as it is not my everyday phone - it was a gift from Dell. Let me know if/how I can help out.

Took me awhile, but I was able to use these instructions with my 1066usa streak. WORKS GREAT!! Question though, whats the difference between using update.zip vs .pkg installation when flashing/installing.

For the life of me I can't figure out why I keep getting "Operation not permitted" when I try to stop the recovery overwrite. Tried the command several times. Have root and have Dell PC Suite and android sdk installed and adb works too.

EDIT: adb devices gets the Serial number
adb remount gets "remount failed: operation not permitted"

EDIT2: All worked out. I flashed to Alternate version of ClockWork.

I was experiencing some difficulties getting the ClockwordMod Recvoery to flash, but Owen over on the #dellstreak IRC helped me out. Running 2.2 like a charm! Thanks a million everyone!

I am a real dummy in androids and their builds, all I know is how to follow instructions, but I seem to be blind enough to not notice how to, if I have the 6491 build installed from modaco, can I update to 2.2 beta even if it says that you need to have that 8xxx build or if not, how do I upgrade from 6x to 8x?

Thanks for the tip, Paul. I'm having a problem with the shell command. In Windows 7 from a command prompt, and from the clockwork recovery directory, when I type adb-windows shell I get "error: device not found". Any suggestions?

Hi,

I just purchased streak with 6267 (00EU) version.
I read everywhere, that it is indeed upgradeable to 2.1 then 2.2

I followed instructions at the other thread.

Problem is, just after i flashed Update.pkg (Streak_104_4399_21.pkg), it says "software is up to date. Rebooting in 30 secs", and after rebooting, it actually still is 6267 !!! :mad::mad::mad:

I tried for more than 5 times. All same results.
I also tried to factory reset, re-fastboot, re-flash recovery, then re-flash ROM. Still same results !! It still is 6267 after reboot..

Anyone knows which part I have gone wrong ?? Please guide me... I badly want my streak to go 2.2.

I seem to be stuck in a failed boot cycle after (carefully) following all the instructions to upgrade my streak to 2.2.

2.1 worked fine.

Whoever helps me fix it (first) will get a free t-shirt (from faroutshirts.com).

EDIT: I replied to the wrong thread, DISREGARD!

I seem to be the only person getting stuck at the Dell logo after flashing and it's really frustrating!

Here are the steps I'm following:

Flash stock 2.1 recovery (6941)
Flash stock O2 2.1 (8105) using PKG
Reboot phone, confirm it boots 2.1 successfully
Shut down and flash 2.5.0.1 clockwork recovery
Reboot and apply 1.1.1 update.zip and reboot

The Dell logo goes through one animation cycle and then it just sits there indefinitely. It's worth noting that beta 3 worked on this device but I cannot go from it or any stock build to 1.0 or 1.1.1 without getting stuck at the Dell logo.

Any help would be super appreciated. I can't wait to get a reasonably stable 2.2 build running!

I found a solution to my boot loop problem, perhaps it will help you. It looks like you have to go in to the partitions menu of clockwork recovery and mount each partition after flashing and before rebooting. Odd this was omitted from all the tutorials I found!

This topic is the place to find everything you need to upgrade your streak to version 2.1! I've successfully updated both an O2 streak and a direct-from-Dell-UK red streak. :)

Enjoy! :)

ROM download

About

This is the main Android 2.1 ROM download. :(

Download

  • Build 8105 (intended for O2 devices, can be applied to generic UK devices using the guide below) - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 398c9b72837bf042c76562b5ec9bf96c
  • Build 8023 (intended for O2 devices, can be applied to generic UK devices using the guide below) - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 0035768dcfbe73d7598a3f78a5899f37
  • Build 6941 (intended for O2 devices, can be applied to generic UK devices using the guide below) - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 69632bb5b1c8e5bc4ffc2333f2a38998
Tools (download ONLY if instructed in the guide below)
  • Stock recovery (build 4399) - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 1211852b3cea6f3610931f99d477ff5e
How to install
  • Download the pkg file above and copy it to your microSD card named 'update.pkg'.
  • ONLY if you have flashed a custom recovery image OR if you are using a non O2 supplied device (e.g. from Dell directly), you need to revert to a stock recovery image by carrying out the following steps:
    • Download the stock recovery image above and extract to a directory
    • Put your device in bootloader mode - Unplug the device from your PC, remove the device battery, then replace it and turn device on with the camera button pressed. Select the 'fastboot' text on the top right, wait around 10 seconds then plug the device into your PC. The screen display should change to 'FASTBOOT MODE'. If it doesn't, repeat and retry (it's a bit temperamental!)
    • WINDOWS - double click 'install-recovery-windows.bat'
    • MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-recovery-mac.sh' followed by './install-recovery-mac.sh'
    • LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-recovery-linux.sh' followed by './install-recovery-linux.sh'
  • Power on your device with the 'volume up' and 'volume down' buttons pressed. This will give you a menu, where the second option is 'Apply update.pkg from SD card' Select this option (using volume keys and camera button to select).
  • When this process completes, your upgrade is done!
Superboot

About

Superboot is a boot.img that when flashed, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK by ChainsDD). No need to flash the system partition, no need to use ADB, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just flash the boot image using the instructions below and you're done!

Download

Before download, you should check your device's 'about' screen to determine which build number you are running. Although the Superboot may work on other builds than that for which it was designed, I cannot guarantee that!
  • r1 for build 6941 - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: c4e7708d4c78e5b3d6d85aeff3a1356b
How to install
  • Download the Superboot zip file above and extract to a directory
  • Put your device in bootloader mode - Unplug the device from your PC, remove the device battery, then replace it and turn device on with the camera button pressed. Select the 'fastboot' text on the top right, wait around 10 seconds then plug the device into your PC. The screen display should change to 'FASTBOOT MODE'. If it doesn't, repeat and retry (it's a bit temperamental!)
  • WINDOWS - double click 'install-superboot-windows.bat'
  • MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-superboot-mac.sh' followed by './install-superboot-mac.sh'
  • LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-superboot-linux.sh' followed by './install-superboot-linux.sh'
  • That's it, you're done!
Recovery images

About

The custom recovery allows you to do all sorts of lovely things such as installing ROM update zips (for custom ROMs), wiping various parts of the device, backing up, restoring and much more.

Download
  • Koush's recovery 2.0.5.1 repack for 2.1 devices - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 948e19055762737366dd0347c0e1b734
  • Stock recovery (as shipped with build 6941) - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 2fecd8e5266da024af4c3a26939ae6a8
How to install
  • Download the recovery image zip file above and extract to a directory
  • Put your device in bootloader mode - Unplug the device from your PC, remove the device battery, then replace it and turn device on with the camera button pressed. Select the 'fastboot' text on the top right, wait around 10 seconds then plug the device into your PC. The screen display should change to 'FASTBOOT MODE'. If it doesn't, repeat and retry (it's a bit temperamental!)
  • WINDOWS - double click 'install-recovery-windows.bat'
  • MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-recovery-mac.sh' followed by './install-recovery-mac.sh'
  • LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-recovery-linux.sh' followed by './install-recovery-linux.sh'
  • That's it, you're done!
To enter recovery mode, turn your device on with 'volume down' and 'volume up' both pressed.

Update: The stock 2.1 build has a built in mechanism that is overwriting the stock recovery image. To disable this, with your device booted and rooted, enter the following at a command prompt (in the directory where you extracted the zip above) before re-flashing the recovery image using the instructions above:

adb-windows shell (or adb-linux shell or adb-mac shell)
su
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system && rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh && mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
exit
exit

need help and please do not ignore. some feedback would be nice!
i just can't get clockword recovery working at all! man i tried every thing from instructions to my own intuition and nada. every method states its been flashed correctly but every time i boot into recovery i get stock recovery image. i tried fastboot flash method and it said okay in terminal and on phone still nothing. tried paul's .bat file which again said download done but no clockwork recovery. used rom manager from market which indicates that i have the clockwork mod installed but when try to boot into recovery via rom manager just boots back into OS bypassing stock recovery altogether. frustrated and annoyed after reading and trying all i can ........... i am now asking for help. trying to run command to remove install-recovery.sh says file does not exist.

question:
when flash clockwork mod do i need to wait for phone to reboot? if so how long do i wait?

PLEASE HELP!
i successfully flashed 2.1 via .pkg file and installed root. recovery is only thing thats proving a nightmare.
