I appreciate the help, I am getting frustrated
HBOOT screen is your bootloader and that is where fastboot commands are run from.
Adb only works within a working os or in recovery.
[QUOTE] I am looking for a way to set S-ON so I can install CWM and flash the nandroid backup that I did find..[QUOTE].
S-On/S-Off has nothing to do with flashing a recovery, only bootloader has to be unlocked , so....
Connect phone to PC.
Put the CWM recovery in your fastboot/adb folder.
Press shilft and right mouse
Scroll down to....
Open command prompt
Then fastboot devices
Once some numbers are shown
fastboot flash recovery filename.img
( filename is name of recovery)
fastboot erase cache
Scroll down to recovery and press power
You should now be able to restore your backup.
PS. If your S-Off. Stay S-Off.. it can sometimes be your only hope of restoring a bricked phone.
