THIS WILL NOT WORK ON UNREVOKED ROOT.

fake-flash!


Fake-flash using a similar concept to the original root method, it launches a recovery image from the test image recovery, but instead of pushing the files from a PC, the files are extracted from an update.zip on the SD card.

You can now download and install the recovery via ROM Manager! It's a free app on the Market. Buy the premium version to support my work!

ROM Manager will ALSO install the recovery update.zip to /sdcard/update.zip. So if you ever hose your installation, simply start up in test/stock recovery mode, and navigate to apply sdcard:update.zip! And you'll be in ClockworkMod recovery!



Preparation
  • Download the fake-flash update zip from one of the links below
  • Copy the update.zip to the root of your SD card (the name MUST remain as update.zip)

When you want to launch the recovery image
  • Turn on your device with 'volume down' pressed and select 'Recovery'
  • When the exclamation mark appears, press and hold 'volume up' then press 'power'
  • Select the second option, 'Apply sdcard:update.zip
  • That's it, ClockworkMod recovery should launch!

ROM Manager is by FAR the easiest way to install this. It's free! Go get it! For manual installation, use the following link:

Yes, what you were using was a beta meant for the Desire. This version works great on Evo
