Ace do you need to mount the sdcard and system in the recovery mode before you flash? Thanks for the help.
Negative... no mount on anything. Just plug into computer with USB and type the two commands into command prompt. Of course, after changing directory to where your sdk tools are
mine is C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
I had to mount the sdcard once inside the reboot recovery on my phone to get it to work.
sorry but what tells you? Your computer's command prompt and like this:
# flash_image boot /sdcard/evilboot9.img ???????????
if your evilboot9.img is indeed at the root of your sdcard and you followed the above directions, there should be no error.
I'm sorry, but it it just didn't work for me that way, I don't know why. I know it was on the root of the sdcard because I still had to use the same path you have above to get it to use the evilboot9.img file. I was just pointing out, I had to mount the sdcard in order for it to work. I'm glad it worked for you the way you outlined, but I figured I would just let people know what to do if your way didn't work for them like it didn't for me
Thanks for your help, everyone. I did something a little differently, but it ended up working out the way it should. I'm now at 900mhz.
But now for the WiFi fix, everytime I type "mount -o remount,rw /system" it says "Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory"
and then I typed the next step which is "cp /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko tiwlan_drv.ko.bak" and it says "cp: cannot create 'tiwlan_drv.ko.bak': Read-only file system"
Does anyone know what I can do to get WiFi back up and running again?
Please provide the link for "tiwlan_drv.ko" download, I would be forever greatful
Here you go.
If you need it for the same reason I do, and you can get it working, please let me know what you did.
Thanks, and now i am having the same problem as you are trying to get this wifi working properly... I've tried doing some things listed on alldroid, all of which did not work.
Here is what i did to get the wifi fix working (from pc command line with droid connected with usb):
1. adb shell
3. mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
4. cat /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko > /sdcard/tiwlan_drv.kRIG
5. cat /sdcard/tiwlan_drv.ko > /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko
6. chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko
7. mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
This should copy your existing tiwlan_drv.ko file to your sd card with the _ORIG extension and will move the new/modified version to your phone.
