    I have been getting alot of messages from people that are trying to use droidmod to go back to stock when they are running Cyanogen... (keep in mind I am pretty active on other sites, just never posted here). Hopefully this resolves the issue of DroidMod saying that your sd card is not mounted.
    ***********************************************************************************************************************
    ***anyone that is having trouble running dm updater***
    sprecovery and clockwork recovery hate each other.... the way that I was able to get it to work is by manually pushing sp recovery to the phone using a free app in the market called terminal emulator ( by jack palevich)
    step 1: install the terminal emulator app
    step 2: download this http://downloads.droidmod.org/recovery-0.99.3.img and copy it to the root of your sd card
    step 3: open terminal emulator and typ this in EXACTLY
    ____________________________________________________________
    su [press the enter button on keyboard]
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3.img [press enter again]
    reboot recovery [press enter again]
    ____________________________________________________________
    the phone will reboot into recovery (sprecovery), then just choose reboot and your phone will reboot like normal. you will then be able to run dm updater like normal. (thanks to the droidreview guy for that video back in the day that showed me how to push sprecovery!)

    There have been a few that weren't able to get the emulator to read the sd card ..the recovery has to be flashed from /data/local..might want to add THAT push as well

    issue with reading the sd card to flash sprecovery.
    Code:
    adb push recoveryimage /data/local/recoveryimage
    flash_image recovery /data/local/recoveryimage
    Where recoveryimage is the name if your sprecovery file. ...OR you can easily switch thanks to adrynalyne and his custom scripts.. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-recovery-image-use.html?highlight=adrynalyne

    mmm i don't think recovery images have to be in /data/local/ boot animations do. recovery images can stay on the root of the sdcard and you just
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recoveryimg.img

    unless you are trying to get it stored out of the way? I thought the partition was /recovery. it has it's own mtd block according to various sites even this one. /system /cache /data
    /recovery /sdcard...etc unless it's just symlinked to /data/local?

    wait update: were you just meaning if you can't get the sdcard to work? it should work if you are using the phone emulator but if you are in recovery mode the sdcard is not mounted by default. clockwork has the mount options now though and that should take care of any issues i'd hope.

    why not just run the rom manager and install the stock rom through it? that gets you back to stock and then you can start all over again with dmupdater from the beginning.

    or you can use rom manager to change the recovery image from clockwork to sprecovery and you are at where your instructions left off.

    dinsdalepirahna: if you ran the code above, all you did was install sprecovery into the recovery partition. that did not install any roms at all. run dmupdater and let that do it for you is the easiest way.

    You can flash SPRecovery from ROMManager. And then you can flash back to Clockwork.
