Hey folks,

I'm trying to install a recovery image using fastboot, as per the directions presented here:

http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_fireball

When I try flashing the recovery, I get the following error message:

Code:
sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.6-fireball.img 
sending 'recovery' (7784 KB)...
OKAY [  1.117s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 1.149s
I was able to obtain S-OFF following the directions presented in this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2664460

but I am now currently in "relocked" state because I followed step 5 and tried running DirtyRacun.

Phone: HTC incredible 4g lte.
hboot: 1.15.0000
radio: 1.53.06.0919
OpenDSP-v29.1.0.45.0622

Thanks in advance!

Unhappy in other news ...
My phone is in an unusable state. I still have access to the bootloader, and when it's plugged into my computer, I have access to it through adb, but otherwise, I can't send or receive phone calls from it.

Apparently shutting down and pulling the battery "fixes" that problem.

Step 5 was not to run dirty racoon it was to flash the engineering hboot from the DirtyRacun webpage, but with S-off you should still be able to flash the hboot and recovery.

I find this page useful when I am working in ADB to keep the ideas fresh. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2141817

That's a nice guide on the Android Debug Bridge (abd). As a side note, I was pleased to find that fastboot and adb can be found in Ubuntu's repositories.

Update: flashed DirtyRacun's HBOOT
My phone now says
-- DirtyRacun --
at the top of the bootloader. No need to "unlocking" the phone because it was already in S-OFF state. After downloading the HBOOT file from unlimited's fireball website, I typed these commands, also available from their website:
Code:
sudo ./fastboot erase cache
sudo ./fastboot oem rebootRUU
sudo ./fastboot flash zip [file name]
sudo ./fastboot reboot

Happily rooted with CyanogenMOD installed :o
I'm happily rooted and have CyanogenMOD up and running.

After flashing the engineering hboot onto my phone using unlimited's directions, I was able to install ClockworkMod Recovery for fireball following the directions posted on their website.

Code:
sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.6-fireball.img 
sending 'recovery' (7784 KB)...
OKAY [  1.141s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  2.129s]
finished. total time: 3.271s
I then was able to install CyanogenMod from recovery like "clockwork". Of course, "abd reboot-bootloader" is much faster than the crazy key combinations they ask you do to. When asked to install from sdcard, there were two locations to look at.

Cheers everyone!
