    So I am stumped.
    I am trying to go back to SPRecovery from Clockwork.

    I am getting the following:

    # /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3b.img
    /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3b.img
    mtd: read all-zero block at 0x00000000; skipping

    I get the same result with the 0.99.3.img which is the same file I had used before Clockwork.

    Any thoughts.?

    try this

    copy sprecovery to his sd card.

    adb shell
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/sprecovery.img
    # sync
    # exit
    adb reboot recovery

    Well, at least it's something new. Tried with both ADB and in terminal, same results. What the heck?

    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3b.img
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.3b.img
    flash_image: not found

    Are you in a boot loop. Because if you can load your phone up; just install droidmod updater and It will get rid of clockwork.

    File name is wrong. Check for extra file extension being added by Windows. File is in a folder.

    Seems like a long way around to get there, but if I can't figure it out I'll do that. Thanks.

    flash_image: not found is an indication that the command flash_image is not a valid command.
    I just checked on my phone (CLOCKWORK) and noticed the flash_image command is not there on the phone it must use something else
    install flash_image (flash_image at sdcard root)
    adb shell
    dd if=/sdcard/flash_image of=/data/local/flash_image
    chmod 755 /data/local/flash_image
    rm /sdcard/flash_image
    and then try flashing your recovery

    Same error. Oh well, I guess I can use DMUpdate, but I'd really prefer to figure it out.
