ok so im trying to instal a custom recovery image but i cant get it to work for the life of me!
ive tried using flashrec but it just comes up flash failed
ive tried using adb but when i type
adb shell
#mount -a
i get "cant read /etc/fstab no such file or directory"

if i type
adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
i get "flash_image: not found"

how can this be so hard? i flashed a custom recovery a few weeks ago using adb and it worked perfect so what am i doing wrong?
im rooted and using pauls latest rom
edit* just to add, when im on the main home screen i can only connect to my phone when its in "htc sync" mode. when im in recovery adb just says "device not found"
