Flashed wrong recovery image (it was for Dream).

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've flashed a wrong recovery image, it was for Dream and not for Hero. I've flashed the last v1.5.2 by Amon_RA and now i cannot go in recovery mode.

I tried flashing the backup or other recovery for Hero (with RecFlasher, because I can't with Fastboot), but everytime i try to boot with Home+Power i only get an icon (a triangle + a phone).

How can i flash back a right recovery image for my Hero 2.73.405.5?

Now my phone runs, but i cannot go in recovery mode, only in fastboot bootloader.

Thanks to all!

p.s. I can still get superuser rights.

For reasons of posterity in future incase someone looks at this thread in weeks/months time, this should also be possible to fix on fastboot. Use these commands:

fastboot erase recovery

fastboot flash recovery correct_hero_recovery.img
Alternatively, use
fastboot boot correct_hero_recovery.img

to get access to a 'temporary' recovery environment using fastboot.

Flashrec is just as good a method, but could be blocked by a future update, hence this explanation for future reference.

Could I manage it via fastboot also with my 2.73.xxx.x stock ROM?

much easier way if you have a terminal emulator and your phone is already rooted.

su

flash_image recovery /sdcard/name-of-recovery.img

Oh yes. Forgot about that method as well :) Obviously, if this was you trying to root the phone for the first time, it wouldn't help, but that's what a goldcard is indirectly for. As a recovery method, shenshang's method is better.

Maybe we should compile a list of all these different methods of flashing. It might act as a good 'how-to' for people, in order to save time used answering the same questions over and over again (not that it happens that much just now).

Definitely - the instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.p...amp;postcount=1 suggest that you need to boot into an existing recovery, to flash the new one. This is not the case.

I followed shenshang's instructions over SSH from my PC and it was as simple as this:

su

flash_image recovery /sdcard/name-of-recovery.img
