My rom seems to be stuck at the bootscreen? The custom one Paul has put in shows up, then it flickers and goes back to that screen again over and over. Unless it has a >5minute bootscreen time for first boot?

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I flash Koush's 2.5.0.1 recovery image as per pinned topic - says successful/done etc. Remove battery to turn handset off (power button does not seem to function after flash) and then boot into recovery (power + vol buttons)

Have tried it 3 times now, just get the stock recovery screen with the 4 options each time???

Found the answer here


So this is what happened to me last night:

I wanted to do a nandroid backup and followed the insuctions in the first post including the amendments regarding ADB

I'd go back to the recovery rom by using the power and two volume keys to only be presented with the same 4 default options.

What I didnt know was that the flash had been succesful every time and that I actually had choose the option to update the device using the update.pkg to see the extra options (including nandroid)

Paul can you please update the instructions and make it clear that this is the case. It took me over and hour to figure that out since I was worried about accidentally restoring using the update.pkg file


Paul - please can you update the instructions as choosing 'update using update.pkg' is not a very intuitive way to get into custom recovery mode (if you have not done it before)! :P

Cheers

With this update my LED buttons are off most of the time, only periodically blinking 6-7 times then returning to off state.

change the drivers manually.. when connected in fastboot point the drivers in device manager to the sdk/usb drivers folder..

you can also flash recovery (and boot) from a terminal on the streak direct.

fairly sure I've written these loads of times already

with a rooted device..
copy the recovery image to the sdcard

install and open terminal emulator (unless that one can't do root) in which case better terminal emulator (paid app) which is frankly *better*


su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/whateveryoucalledtherecovery.img
reboot


while its rebooting hold down both volume keys

Same thing happening to me. Flashed over stock 8105. Followed all instructions and things seem to have gone to plan. No idea where I took a wrong turn...

so after a power nap ... success!

after my slight snafu I flashed back to stock recovery and then stock 8105 ... then i only flashed the custom koush recovery, applied a rom from the kitchen and stick a fork in, it's done.

bonus - the MCR did not wipe the device, hurrah!

read it all... including the bit at the very bottom...

it does not go back into stock recovery unless you let it boot normally!


when you trigger the reboot command from the shell hold down the two volume keys..
it will go straight to recovery menu

select the 2 option to get into the clockwork menu

Thanks - that worked! Slightly different combo. Initially I had a couple of Google applications excluded. Now have it all in. Wonder if that's what made the difference.
