you can share usb storage to pc, or install unsigned update.zip files.

Credits for the apk goes to Tenfar, modifications to work on flipout with hack to boot is made by me.

It should work on all 2.1 based releses, as long as the phone is rooted.

controls in recovery are: VOL- & VOL+ for up/down and POWER to select.

There is an addon option to run adb at bootup (root based), if you put a empty file named: "adb_bootup" on root of sdcard.

Enjoy! (now lets see some mods!)

Installation instructions:
  • 1. root it (SuperOneClick )
  • 2. Install FlipOutRecovery.apk
  • 3. reboot phone once
  • 4. now enter app and press "Install recovery"
  • 5. next you can chose to reboot recovery , normal reboot or shutdown.
Good job!

Is there a way to install it from bootloader mode?
This is the only available mode i have right now
