I've been having some trouble with SPRecovery. Trying to backup or restore or install an update zip from SDCard I get an error status 31. This indicates the sdcard was not formatted using the Droid to format. So I formatted the sdcard. The error still comes up. But if I keep trying over and over again eventually I can mount the mmcblk0 and do the backup, restore or install. No logic to why it works sometimes but doesn't work most of the time.
So I decided to push a good copy of SPRecovery. I had originally installed SPRecovery via an sbf using RSDlite. This copy was set up to work with ESE81. It flashes the image file to prevent the stock recovery from coming back.
I found a copy of SPRecovery 0.99.3 and used Terminal Emulator to flash it to the device. Everything worked. I backed up the phone. Restored a previous back up. Installed a market fix via update.zip. It worked fine each time. So it leads me to believe the error was coming from that bad install of SPRecovery.
But now I have SPRecovery 0.99.3 and I used to have 0.99.3b. I can not for the life of me find a newer version via google search. Any help pointing to a downlaod. I am looking for the .img file. But an update.zip would work too I suppose.
