    I have been trying to get there all night, but keep getting a page error. Anyone know if this was planned or some type of glitch?

    I waited and waited to root and then do some modifying. After finally reading all the posts I decided what I wanted to do and have everything I need except Sprecovery. My procrastination cost me this time LOL

    I can still download files that have been linked...just looks like the webpage itself is corrupted or something.

    Most of the files that I get from Sholes, I also backup to my own website, so if you need something in particular, I can look to see if I have it.

    Most are able to download, but sprecovery is not. That, plus the install instructions, are what I need if possible.

    Thanks

    That's terrific! Thanks for the file. Does anyone know the process of updating it?

    No, I have not been able to find the install instructions. I know they are on the sholes site, but was hoping they were somewhere else as well.

    Cool...I found this earlier when looking for the file itself, but did not think of going back for instructions. Thanks.

    Is this the same instructions that are found on the sholes site? Seems less than straight forward.

    Save the SPRecovery img file to your sdcard.

    Then to update it, for me, it is:

    adb shell
    su
    /system/bin/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.2b.img

    If your flash_image is stored in a different directory than /system/bin (possibly /data/local), then you need to give it the proper path.

    This is from sholes.info dev team thread on alldroid.org:

    "Side-note: If you're without adb and you're trying to update your recovery image, you can download the newest .img, use ASTRO to place it in the root /sdcard directory, then use a terminal emulator like ConnectBot, or something else of the like to run:

    $ su
    # /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.2b.img
    (replace '/data/local/' with wherever your copy of flash_image is installed, or if you don't have a copy, see the Sholes.info SPRecovery installation guide.

    Then reboot into recovery mode and you should be good."

    I did this to update to the sholes.info 1.2 ROM last night. Hope this helps.

    check this out if you have more questions: AllDroid - View topic - [ROM .tgz] 2.0.1 Sholes.info Edition 1.2 (UPDATED: 01/25/10)

    Ok, half asleep since I have been up all night, but was is the correct way to use adb? I downloaded the sdk and went to tools, but when trying to open the exe it just does the quick pop up and closes back down. Sorry for my stupidity this morning....

    ok, I realize it is a command line program, but how do I go about linking it to adb. I am at c:\program files> and adb is in a folder on my desktop.
