How-To #7: How to Update and Access Your Recovery Screen

Updating the recovery mod is one of the most useful aspects of rooting. It allows you to debug your phone for any problem, but more importantly, it allows the installation(a.k.a "flashing") of any zip files, such as roms and SPL.


1) Make sure your android system is rooted
2) Install Rom Manager App
3) Click on Flash ClockworkMod Recovery in the app, look at pic below

4) After the recovery is flashed -> Open up a adb shell and type in "adb reboot recovery" or "reboot recovery" in any terminal emulator

Hi, how do I enter this into the terminal?

$ su
# mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
# cd /system
cd /system
# cat /data/local/recovery.img > recovery.img
cat /data/local/recovery.img > recovery.img
# flash_image recovery recovery.img
flash_image recovery recovery.img

When do I press enter after each command? Where are the spaces? i.e. is there one after mtdblock3/system ?

Thanks !
