    Do you have the Android SDK installed? If so you need to change directory to the Android SDK/tools directory then issue the fastboot command. If you don't have the Android SDK installed...Happy birthday. The attached file contains fastboot, adb and a few DLL's. Unzip this file and in your command prompt change directory to wherever you unzipped the file to. For example:

    Unzip the carepackage.zip file to c:\temp
    *You may want to copy your amon-ra img file there as well*
    open command prompt
    type cd\temp
    then fastboot flash recovery recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img

    Of course you need your phone connected via USB and in HBOOT, but I'm assuming you've already done that....

    Hello all, new Rezound owner here, from an HTC Thunderbolt. OF course, being rooted, I cant stand to have a new phone and not root it. Im stuck at the above step. I have the Rezound unlocked, and it bootloader fastbootusb attached, tried the HTC sync driver install/unistall/reinstall download/delet/redownload of the amon ra file 3.14, and when I sent the recovery file over to the phone i get this:

    C:\Temp>fastboot flash recovery recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img
    < waiting for device >
    sending 'recovery' (7074 KB)...
    OKAY [ 1.498s]
    writing 'recovery'...
    FAILED (remote: not allowed)
    finished. total time: 3.822s

    any help with this isa appreciated. I have the android folder on my c drive, but I figured I would try the above to see if I had any luck. Im stuck, it isnt working for some reason. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    also, I should expand, I still have S-ON, so I was wondering, is that what is preventing me from flashing the recovery file? I dont do this stuff often, so forgive my noobishness. At least I I got it unlocked...:biggrin:

    Just getting very frustrated here...my Thunderbolt was soooo easy to root compared to this...

    Aight, figured it out. Of all the stupid stuff, I had to switch to a different USB port on my comp. Gah, I feel dumb. But after that, loaded like a champ, and now Im rooted. However, it still doesnt say S-Off in the bootloader menu...guess Ill have to figure that one out.

    SSDD. Get the Mac/Linux Android SDK(if you don't already have it) and from a command prompt "fastboot flash recovery <whatever_your_amon_ra_img_file_is>" and you're off and running.

    Do you have the Andriod SDK installed? Did you change directory to where ever you installed it? Quick example. Say I downloaded and installed the SDK into /AndroidSDK then:

    copy your amon-ra img file into /AndroidSDK/platform-tools/
    open a command prompt
    type "cd /AndroidSDK/platform-tools/"
    then "fastboot flash recovery <your amon_ra.img_file>"

    I think I forgot a "./"
    "./fastboot flash recovery <your amon_ra.img_file>" instead of "fastboot flash recovery <your amon_ra.img_file>"
