    I'm trying to follow the instructions on Droid-life.com to go back to stock from Cyanogen, but when I use DM Updater, it will not overwrite SPR to clockwork, so if I try to use the stock mod, I get an error because it's still using clockwork. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! I also have a message about my SD card not being mounted if that matters.

    [FONT=&quot]DO NOT TYPE THE QUOTATION MARKS AND MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE THE SPACES (if you have 0.99.2b on your sdcard, use it instead of 0.99.3b in the text below)

    "su" press enter
    "flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3b.img" press enter
    "reboot recovery" press enter


    These are from BayouFlyFisher and they worked great for me

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I have either recovery image on my card, at least I can't see them using astro.

    Do you have them on your computer? You can mount via usb while inside clockwork recovery.


    EDIT:I had to type 0.99.3.img.....no b

    Would they be in my root folder on the sd card or in some sub folder?

    I can't seem to find them, I followed the instructions via the video at Droid-life.com to install 5.05 and everything was fine until I followed the isntructions to uninstall at which point when I go into DM updater I get the following message "Your SD card is not mounted. If you SD card is mounted on your computer, you must eject it before running DM updater."

    I think that has something to do with why the DM updater won't run the SPR recovery program.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Open terminal emulator and try the commands. I use to think DmUpdater was the easiest Until I did it this way. If you were rooted before and able to boot into sprecovery, chances are the image is still there (on the root to answer your question)


    EDIT:the root of the sdcard is not in the root folder.

    unfortunately not, it says there's no such file or directory.

    yep, even tried them both and I looked at my sd card and can't find any evidence of those files. hopfully I'm not too screwed. Is there anyway to install sprecovery over clockwork?
