777 ? wtf?
777 is rwxrwxrwx
at the most flash_image should be 755 (rwxr-xr-x)
but since you need root to use it 700 (rwx------) is better
the 5x cmr doesn't work for the dream
Yes the thread says it works perfect but also says it doesn't work on the dream yet, so not so perfect
also the instructions for flashing are wrong
the OP instructs the user to
- adb remount
which makes system rw, which has nothing to do with recovery
- adb su
which is a pointless step since a/ not needed as you are already root b/it runs su then exits
so you are following two guides which are written by people who don't really understand what they are doing
so the question is
did flash_image really fail?
probably not since you are flashing a recovery which is known to not work with a G1
If flash_image did fail, it is most likely a memory problem
two ways around that
- via adb shell stop android with do the flash_image recovery recovery.img
either reboot or start zygote
- write an init.d script to flash recovery on boot for example
test -e /cache/recovery.img || exit 1
flash_image recovery /cache/recovery.img > /cache/flash_img.log
You don't need clockwork 5x
apparently 2x crashes windows so either upgrade to a real OS or install RA-1.7 and keep a clean /sdcard (no scroll or dir navigation with in RA)
1.- 777 works for me, so no need to change to 700.
2.- Yes normally I remit myself to follow guides, my G1 is not exactly my main phone but I like to experiment, I have JTAG so no problem.
3.- yes, once flash_image performed the flash it just stayed there doing nothing, the command prompt only shown that I entered the command correctly but didn't did anything else.
4.- Just because you say that I don't need cloworkmod 5x doesn't mean that I will even listen to you, BTW, I run debian and windows 7, sorry, windows 7 still owns as my main os, you go and play whit whatever you understand for a "real os" I'll "play" (literally) with mine.
Go and flame anyone else please.
