    [Q] flashing Recovery.img using Fastboot?

    Ok, so this is my first time trying to deal with the VZW Galaxy Tab. I'm used to flashing Recovery.img's via Fastboot and making a 100% stock backup before i root.

    After a bunch of reading, this tablet seems like a pain compared to every other android device i've messed with. It almost seems like Recovery is pointless. You guys don't use it to flash roms, don't use it to flash kernels or other recoveries.

    So, I guess my question is this. Can I make a backup of where I am RIGHT NOW, before i root and mess with heimdall?

    since the 600+ people who have read this thread either don't know or don't care, the answer is no. you can't flash things via fastboot like you can on 99% of other android devices.

    i had to use heimdall to flash recovery and the kernel to make it work.
