another question, how to do a fastboot via my pc?
The pad needs to boot into fastboot mode. I think it was volume - (basically one volume button is going into recovery/the green android and holding the other one going into fastboot mode/bootloader). You'll know you're in fastboot mode because the pad said so.
To flash the boot.img, you'll need fastboot software in your pc/computer. Just search for fastboot.zip in xda or Google and extract the content and put the boot.img in the same folder as the fastboot software and run the command in the first post from the command prompt. If you don't understand command prompt, then make a text file in notepad containing the command and save it as anything.bat (choose the file type to all files or something like that) and save it/put the anything.bat file in the same folder as the fastboot software and run it. For preventing the windows closing so that you know whether the flashing is successful or not, Iirc, you can add @echo off in the second line of the bat file, so it would look like this
Fastboot flash boot boot.img
I might be wrong though. If you dig the Olympic kernel thread, I think you'll find a better example of the bat file (and I think there's a link for the bat file there).
