    From the default location in the terminal. I suggest using the adb as doing this on your thumbs is prolly suck.

    An excellent post has been written on how to use ADB. I recommend people follow that post before attempting my methods.

    I have a few questions before I consider doing anything. What is the failure/success rate of rooting. Will the phone screw up if you do a over the air update on a rooted phone? When rooting do you have to reprogram your phone number to your phone? When flashing do you have to reprogram your phone number to your phone? Un-root if you have problems and need to use the warranty? Will restoring system defaults require you to reprogram your phone number? Do you think we will ever be able to duel boot roms, one the stock system, and one a custom rom? Thanks in advanced.

    There always seems to be variables with the commands to do the "same?" thing. Which is best to use for setting up the recovery? (other then the mtdblock3, mtdblock4, 4 being the correct one)
    The one listed in the OP's post:

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    /system/bin/flash_image recovery /sdcard/use the recovery ROM in your sdcard
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.old
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    Or the one from this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ery-image.html

    1 - place the required files (flash_image binary and recovery.img - naming shouldn't matter i kept the version number on it) on your sdcard - you can do this with a microsdcard reader, adb push, or just by connecting your *working* droid to your computer and mounting the SD card.
    2 - Connect your phone to your computer in debugging mode and use ADB shell to start a root session on your phone by typing su
    3 - mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system - this mounts /system as a writable partition
    4 - mkdir /system/xbin - if it already exists you will simply get an error
    5 - cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/xbin/flash_image
    6 - chmod 700 /system/xbin/flash_image - validate permissions on /system/xbin/flash_image - you are the root user after all, don't need world and group executable or even read =)
    7. mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.old - This will ensure that the custom image will not be overwritten on reboot.
    8 - sync - flush changes to block device
    9 - mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system - remount in read-only - you shouldn't need to make any more changes
    10. /system/xbin/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img - will reflash your recovery partion with the custom loader.
    11 - hit power button, select power off
    12 - hold x, hit power button
    13 - you should be greated by the custom recovery firmware

    Disable default Verizon crap
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /system/app
    mv Email.apk Email.bak
    mv VVMStub.apk VVMStub.bak
    mv com.amazon.mp3.apk com.amazon.mp3.bak
    mv CorpCal.apk CorpCal.bak
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    ?

    Ok I got how to do this but exactly what happens, and to what ?
    Corporate Calendar, Amazon
    What is VVMStub ?
    What email are we getting rid of.

    Where does it go. Can you get it back ?
    This thing is looking pretty cool.
    Hope it is as tough as they say.
    I am easy on my phones, but if it is tough it should last forever, right ?

    @mrZoso, You may choose to put it in bin or create xbin and put it there; either will work.

    @stainless, you are simply placing them in the same folder with the .bak extension to replace them do

    Code:
     
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /system/app
    mv Email.bak Email.apk
    mv VVMStub.bak VVMStub.apk
    mv com.amazon.mp3.bak com.amazon.mp3.apk
    mv CorpCal.bak CorpCal.apk
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    VVMStub = Visual Voice Mail
    Email is the email app (you should just use Gmail)

    You aren't deleting them, simply renaming them so they don't show up in your apps list. If you one day need them, you can use the renaming code in reverse to retrieve them.
