How to flash without a pc (boot.img, recovery, hboot, radio, and more.

Disclamer: if your break your phone you did something wrong, it is your fault not mine.


Partition list
Download the file that you want to flash, rename it to what it is, ie recovery.img and put it on the root of your sdcard
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/"FILE_YOU_PUT_ON_SDCARD" of=/dev/block/"PARTITION_NUMBER"
Example
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p43
Reboot and you are good to go!

You can also use 'cat'.

cat /sdcard/name_of_image.img > /dev/block/specific_image_partition_block
