    PLEASE HELP!!

    I'm in the middle of rooting (using Matth3w's guide) and when I type:

    /system/bin/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3.img

    it returns:

    /system/bin/flash_image: 1: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

    I've tried 3 times thinking a typo, but I don't think so.

    PLEASE HELP

    Looks like you are typing that line correctly, is there something that wasnt entered in right in the previous steps? I would go back and check that first and then maybe just exit and start over if everything looks ok above.

    I do not see a typo in what you typed here. Did you enter any " ? Did you download and install the SPRecovery on the SD card without any file extension?

    One of my downloaded files was corrupt, re-downloaded it and all is well. As I told mike in my pm...
    I was at a good stopping point before I install overclock and smoked glass so I had me a pizza two beers and a float around the jacuzzi.

    I'm now officially ready. :)
