does anyone have their recovery-backup.img . I want to try reverting back to the original bootloader the update the new MR and install aman ra recovery again. If this works, this will save a lot of people alot of time. This way they wont have to flash the RUU back to the phone.

Please and thankyou :)

Glad I am a maniac about backing things up.

I tired this already, the update fails halfway through it. the phone reboots and tells you to call customer service with a error code.

So I did:

flash_image recovery recovery-backup.img

Now when I try to boot to recovery I get a little yellow warning triangle with a phone laying next to it.

Anyone have a copy of this file? I'm getting the "download limit reached" error from Rapidshare.

Did anyone get this MR upgrade method to work? I'm running a stock rooted ROM, but I have the nandroid recovery image installed which is keeping the MR install from working.
