Fastboot can also flash boot images. Try flashing from there.

You mean:


./fastboot-linux flash recovery clockworkmod.img && ./fastboot reboot


? :)

If so, done that.

nope. The boot.img inside the zip file. Copy it into the fast boot folder and ./fastboot-linux flash boot boot.img && ./fastboot reboot

Okay. Gonna trash all BlueMonte ZIP files I have, and download one fresh and try that.


Wait here... LOL :P __confidence__

Okay, getting all muddled up here. Let's rewind a little.

Step by step, what do I do first? Do I try cwm again AFTER flashing boot.img? SO confused now.

Flash the boot image using fast boot. That's all you need to do.

I rebooted into bootloader mode, using ./adb reboot bootloader... now I get...


matt@(none):~/Desktop/r4-4.0.1.4-skate-clockworkmod$ ./fastboot-linux flash boot boot.img && ./fastboot-linux reboot
sending 'boot' (4096 KB)... OKAY
writing 'boot'... FAILED (remote: flash write failure)
rebooting...

Is bootloader mode the correct mode in which to flash boot.img, the same as how you flash the CWM image in? :) (Paul's method). Do I have the correct mode? Which mode am I to put the phone in, to flash boot.img?

This is fast becoming a mess of confusion. :(

yes it is. I think orange has blocked your boot partition. I've never seen flash write failure before.

Its possible but as you say improbable. I'm out of idea. I would ask on the blade forum I they have any ideas.

Not even going there, but thanks.


It seems that the /boot partition cannot be written to, which is causing all these crazy errors. I wonder if rooting the OMC after reverting to stock TPT will help?

Do you think the /boot partition has been re-secured? Is that even possible? If so, what is the next step... would you have to make a new ROM?
