$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p32
# reboot recovery

THANKS SKEEVYDUDE FOR THE PROPER COMMAND & EPINTER FOR THE RECOVERY
And anyone else I forgot


Edit: to add the correct android terminal
Command & instructions

Disclaimer: if you **** up its not my fault
This Will work if done properly


Requirements: android
A BRAIN
Terminal emulator
Recovery.img (see epinter/skeevydude posts)

Download recovery of your choice place on root of sdcard

Open terminal and enter this command


$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p32
# reboot recovery

Your done congratulations you now have a recovery


Problems? : triple check your commands I'm NOT a Dev and cannot provide support as this is a fairly basic process for anyone expert or beginning always remember android is Linux and thus terminal has more power than you realize and so does google good luck!

Hi, can you please explain the steps you followed to install recovery. Do we put the recovery image file in SD card and use any terminal emulator app to key in the codes? TIA

It is a nifty way of doing it
