    You cannot do this from within Android, so reboot to recovery mode.
    You will also need adb setup for this. In SPRecovery, go to mount options and mount the sd card.

    Code:
    adb shell
    flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img
    Reboot.)
    I reboot into recovery (SPRecovery) mount the sd card, open terminal and type adb shell:

    I get back :
    Code:
    error:device not found
    any advice?
    i use clockworkmod recovery, its more advanced in my opinion. you can install it with rom manager free from the market, ive had NO problems getting adb shell in recovery with clockworkmod

    I used clockworkmod and it worked but my recovery seems unstable. sometimes it wont mount the sd card. sometimes it reboots on its own back to normal.
    I got an error just now

    adb shell
    error: protocol fault (no status)

    then reboots

    Your kernel is probably buggy.

    Hey sorry to bump an old thread but I just have 2 quick questions...


    1) Does this still work nowadays? I mean is all of the data still updated or should I download new kernel stuff or something? If so how?

    2) When I try and do this command:
    Code:
    git checkout --track -b android-omap-2.6.29-eclair origin/android-omap-2.6.29-eclair
    This always comes up:
    Code:
    ljbaumer@ubuntu:~/kernel/droid/ti$ git checkout --track -b android-omap-2.6.29-eclair origin/android-omap-2.6.29-eclair
    fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
    Did you intend to checkout 'origin/android-omap-2.6.29-eclair' which can not be resolved as commit?
    What should I do?


    Thanks a bunch,

    Although I don't have a complete answer for you, I can say with a fair amount of confidence that this thread is too old and is in serious need of maintenance. The kernel has been updated from 2.6.29 to 2.6.32 and the newest version is gingerbread, though you _might_ be able to still pull froyo source independant of the gingerbread commits.

    I personally gave up because the android gods just don't seem to want me to compile. Either my linux machine was always crashing and/or every time I asked a question it went unanswered.

    good luck

    Well, I'm not sure how you would download the kernel only files for gingerbread; basically the kernel for gingerbread and froyo are the same as it was coming from eclair to froyo that the kernel version was changed, here's an educated guess:
    Code:
    git checkout --track -b android-omap-2.6.32-froyo origin/android-omap-2.6.32-froyo
    Now that is a guess only. If you want to download the whole gingerbread source, that is another story and I am pretty sure I know where to find the proper command for that.

    good luck

    Awesome, I'll try that when I get a chance, do you have instructions for getting all of the froyo stuff? Like just using the eclair commands but with froyo?

    start [CVPCS Android Wiki]

    It's a bit old, but it's a start.

    good luck

    Solution

    Now that is a guess only.
    I do believe I have found the proper solution.

    Froyo:

    Code:
    git checkout --track -b android-omap-2.6.32 origin/archive/android-omap-2.6.32
    Eclair:

    Code:
    git checkout --track -b android-omap-2.6.29-eclair origin/archive/android-omap-2.6.29-eclair
    To find what heads (branches) are being called at any point in time check the bottom of the page at android.git.kernel.org Git - kernel/omap.git/summary for the "heads" section. Today the 5th item down is "archive/android-omap-2.6.32", which made the branch we put in the "git checkout" command "origin/archive/android-omap-2.6.32".

    I haven't pushed any further into the guide than this step yet, but I will post updates if/when I finish to let everyone know if it still works.
