    I have done everything to try to get wifi tether working but the only thing I can't get it to do is flash the new boot image using the flash_image tool. I always get permission denied. I have tried chmod to 700 using the adb shell and that sill doesn't work. Any ideas?

    Are you running the command from your phone or from your computer using adb?

    You have to be in the nandroid recovery console (hold x + power button) and connect with USB through your computer, while using adb. Hope that helps.
