I know this is not a new subject. but i feel i wont get a response in another thread that is pretty outdated. so im trying to flash cwm recovery thru fastboot but i get an error. I've tried typing the directory path c:\android-sdk\platform-tools\recovery.img. i get "cannot load recovery.img". this is what im typing

fastboot flash recovery c:\android-sdk\platform-tools\recovery.img
and i still get the error. I've even tried moving the recovery.img to c:\recovery.img
but no matter where or how i call it. it wont load. please help guys. I had android sdk install before but i had to wipe my pc clean and i just recieved a replacement nexus s 4g.

Have you tried navigating to the folder where recovery.img is located and typing "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"

What do mean navigating? Typing the directory path?

I think he means typing this first:

cd c:\android-sdk\platform-tools\

Place the recovery you need in C:\android-sdk\platform-tools\recovery.img

Open up command prompt and type:

cd \android-sdk\platform-tools

Now, make sure it detects your android:

fastboot devices

You'll see a line with a serial number, you're good to go (remember you need to be in fastboot mode while you do all of this, Vol. Up + Power while off)

Now, just flash the recovery.img (i'd recommend the latest recovery from clockworkmod.com):

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Is your bootloader unlocked? Also, fastboot devices shows a serial number right?
