    So to do this, just switch the format to Unix in the preferences??
    I don't see LF as an option any where, unless I'm missing it :unsure:

    If you end up not able to find the option, you can always convert it on the Droid. Busybox has dos2unix and unix2dos built in, which handily converts text files from one format to the other.

    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
