Are you making sure to set USB Debug Mode?

Settings>Applications>Development>Check "USB Debugging"

Make sure you are set to charge only, not USB Disk Mode.

Also make sure you have rooted first. I used Z4Root from the Market.

Just a couple basic things to check... I do not know of a way personally to do it through the terminal, I used ADB.

Put recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img and flash_image on the sdcard. Then open the terminal (you can use terminal emulator, from market) and give the following commands:

$ su

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

# cat /mnt/sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

# flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img

# reboot recovery

It looks like you got into fastboot mode. Try flashing the recovery image using fastboot. If it doesn't work, enter emergency mode and flash the original firmware with kdz updater.

The image recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img has to be flashed on the recovery partition, not on the boot partition. The right command is:

fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery-RA-GNM-thunderg-1.1.0.img
