    Angry First of its kind: 2.1 sbf file with O/C kernel preinstalled

    This is a first of its kind at least that I know of.

    This file is the 2.1 sbf file but I have replaced the stock kernel with my custom kernel overclocked to 1.1 ghz.

    Please follow these directions.
    Before beginning ensure you have the following files.

    1) flash_image in your c:/android/tools directory (or where ever yours is located).
    2) su in your c:/android/tools directory (or where ever yours is located).
    2) sprecovery 0.99.3b in your sdcard root directory.
    Now using the Motorola RSDlite program install this rom 2.1 Base ROM
    Now follow these directions to install the custom recovery.
    A) once os is installed you will need to connect it to a computer and go into the command prompt
    B) next, go to your android/tools folder
    C) next in the command prompt type adb push flash_image /data/local
    D) next type adb push su /data/local
    E) next type adb shell
    F) next type su
    G) next type mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    H) next then type: cd /system/bin
    I) next type: cat /data/local/flash_image > flash_image
    J) next type cat /data/local/su > su
    K) next type chmod 6777 flash_image
    L) next type chmod 6777 su
    M) next type flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    N) next type mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    O) next type reboot
    that is it..reboot and you now have the custom recovery and an overclocked 2.1 ROM

    I hope you enjoy this !!!

    You can download the files here.

    Only problem I have is where you got this posted. It should probably be in the hacks section. I'll see if I can get someone to move it there so more people can see it.

    Hmm, to me preinstalled would mean the kernel is in the sbf file. With this method you're installing the sbf then the kernel. Am I overlooking something?

    His instructions are giving you info on installing a recovery image after flashing the SBF. Its not the kernel.

    I want to stop in here and the P3 for this file and the instructions for installing. I know he has worked very hard on it as well as the staff at mydroidworld. They are good friends of mine and wanted to share this with our community as well.

    Our sincerest thanks to all involved in this sbf file. We look forward to working with MDW in the future

    this looks good. however, instead of installing the flash image and sprecovery using adb could we just use dmupdater? or does that just work on 2.0.1?

    Which sbf file is this?
    The ERE25 or the previous leak?
    Just curious.

    @ tktouch12 - DmUpdater does not work on 2.1.

    @ Topsy - This is ERE25.

    @ awar32 - the Link has been fixed.

    @ Miami - thanks for the post and I know we go way back, lol, but still its very nice of you.

    I will make no promises but I am trying to add a custom recovery and create my own sbf from this base. I'm not entirely sure this is possible though.
