    Edited because it has just been brought to my attention that an excellent post has been written on how to use ADB. I recommend people follow that post before attempting my methods.

    Something I noticed, which was posted at Sholes site, when setting up the recovery image for use. There is a line missing from the original post. I put it in bold below.

    Flash/Recovery image
    ::NOTE: This is not important atm, since there aren't any roms for us to install. However, once roms start comming out this will be how we get them on the phone. Additionally, I have left my link at 0.08 for stabilty reasons.
    Flash Image- http://cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip
    Recovery image- http://hh628.ath.cx/recovery-0.08.img
    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
    mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    Try this link, it's the same one from Sholes and it just worked for me.
    http://sp.sholes.info/recovery-0.14.0.img

    Then:
    adb shell
    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/recovery-0.14.0.img
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.old
    mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    You'll need the flash_image also.
    http://cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip
    Unzip it and put it on your sdcard, the recovery image also needs to be on the sdcard.
    Not sure about using a terminal emulator to do this, it probably would work.

    Fixed the recovery image download to point to their main site so that it will always be current. :D I did this on my all droid one awhile ago and forgot abot this one lol.

    I just use
    Code:
    mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.old
    and everything works, but either one could be disabled and it will still work. Disabling the sh will save ya some time in processing, but not enough to really notice it.
