[SOLVED] install-recovery.sh - The undeletable script from the dark side...
First of, I would like to thanks all of you for the amount of info I have found in this forum.
This is trully amazing and, so far, allowed me to sucessfully:
- Unlock my phone
- Root my phone
- Install a custom recovery image
I know that I am creating a new post on a very known and discussed subject BUT after 2 days of google seach nothing I have tried has permitted me to sucessfuly delete this £$%^&*() of script.
As you all know, it needs to be deleted to launch the custome recovery image (at the moment, I am stucked with the exclamation mark with the little Droid when I try).
IMPORTANT: I currently run the Froyo android 2.2 official ROM.
To delete this scipt, I have tried 2 approaches:
- Console mode from windows using ADB
- directly form the phone using a File explorer
#1: From the console:
As mentionned in many previous posts, I have tried the following commands once connected to the nexus
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
I beleive this command is either incorrect OR no longer working with Froyo 2.2 as I get the following message which looks fishy (I am not a Linux specialist...):
Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory
When I try to delete the scripe with the commande below, I am kindly informed that it failed as it is still a read only file system
#2: From the phone
I read that SUFBS, a very nice file explorer was available on the market allowing to mount both system AND data in RW would allow me to do it.
I have had several try at it enabling RW at different moment (System then etc then directly when I am in the folder and see the script I want to delete) and whatever I do, each time I select the command delete, it looks like it works (little pacman eating) but the script from the dark side is sill there like nothing happened...
As I am close to give it the microwave treatment to see if it works better ;) I thought I give it a try on the forum to see if any Android/Linux god would spend 5 minutes to explain to me what I am doing wrong...
Thanks a lot in advance!
