So I have a rooted 2.1 Verizon Moto Droid. I tried to overclock it using the evilboot8.img I am an experienced Linux user so I understand the concepts of whats going on.
Heres what I did.
boot to recovery (Clockworkmod Recovery v184.108.40.206)
adb command prompt in windows
flash_image boot /sdcard/evilboot8.img
it just sits at the M Motorola logo.
I knew I had a back up (from rooting the phone). I didn't need to look up a guide to do it because the procress is the same.
boot back to recovery
adb command prompt from windows
flash_image boot /sdcard/nandroid/2.1_rooted_fresh/boot.img
everything works fine.
So either the evilboot8.zip I downloaded is garbage or theres something else going on. My flash_image obviously works because I was able to use it to restore my backup. Any ideas or a link to known good evilboot8.zip will be appreciated.
