First of all some information that might be useful, dunno:
DREA110 PVT 32B
I downgraded to RC7 (Kila_uk-user 1.0 TC5 RC7 112931 ota-rel-keys) again and did the telnet-thingy to install the recovery image, which works fine - but here's where the problem starts.
I wanted to install DRC83_base_defanged (as the CMWiki says) from the recovery mode but it simply says "Installation aborted".
Also wiping, recovery etc. doesn't work at all. No matter what update.zip I want to install, it's the same every time. I googled for like 5 hours now and can't find any solution, please don't flame me if I was simply too stupid for proper searching, trust me I did ^^
The same thing happens to me when using the CM recovery and the RA one. Am I right that this can't be because I have no root? Because if I can install the recovery images, I should have root, right? please help me I'm getting crazy, trying to make it work for the whole day now
thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english and newbiness ^^
the only thing I can think of is one of your partitions has become corrupt
its happened to me before ( well truth be known I did a flash_image system /sdacard/nandriod....system.img
, don't do that
here is how to confirm
from RA Recovery go to console, and type
if any of those complain, then we are closer to fixing it
you need to erase the problem partition with fastboot
fastboot is part of the android sdk, you can hopefully find install instructions somewhere on this forum or google.
once you have fastboot setup, you need to get into fastboot mode on the phone, do this by holding the camera button when turning your phone on, you should see skateboards
hook your phone up to pc via usb
select fastboot on the phone ( fastboot should be in a red block )
then on pc
fastboot erase < the broken partition >
e.g. if system failed to mount
fastboot erase system
Hope this helps
