all sorts of issues
Just got an unlocked mytouch 3g from my sister and been trying to unlock, root and load a custom recovery on it. I've tried multiple methods and nothing seems to be working quite right.
I have a 32a chipset with a 2.22 radio
I have 2.2.1 software so I used the SuperOneClick root method. Everytime I use it though the software seems to freeze up. I don't know if it got through all it's steps or not but when I use rootchecker it says it is rooted. I didn't have superuser on the phone so I downloaded it from market and it says the same. However, it says my su binary is out of date and can't verify the md5sum of the new download.
Back to this method, when i try and push the new recovery image to the phone it says
"failed to copy 'C:\roottools\3.22Radio\recovery-RA-sapphire-v1.7.0G.img' to '/sdcard' : is a directory"
I did the not so cool method and turned on the usb storage and just copied the file to the root of my sdcard. (also, oddly enough, if I transfer the file to /sdcard/dcim or some other folder on the card it works fine)
As you would guess, I didn't have flash_image in my shell so I went to step 9
when i go through the steps I get to the end and it says "error writing recovery: permission denied"
I've also tried to install clockworkmod recovery and it flashes fine but it won't ever take me to it.
In the end, I obviously have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I do, however, know I have usb debugging on. This is my second android phone I've rooted so I'm not a complete noob...still pretty close though.
