Help please
Sorry if i´m too noob but I have a nexus for almost one month and cant install amon ra recovery and so.

I already have unlocked the bootloader, updated to froyo test release (FRF50) and rooted it with paul´s superboot.

I have sucess to install amon ra recovery via fastboot or terminal BUT I always come to stock recovery.

Amon Ra said in big red letters:

Check if there's no /system/etc/install-recovery.sh script if you keep booting back in the stock recovery (exclamation mark with a little Android).

Ok, I have this file but please someone help me how to delete it!!! No sucess in terminal ( su -> rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh -> file read-only).

I´m looking to some help about how to remove this damn file. thx!

Before the "rm" command you have to "remount" your device to have read/write permission:

adb remount
rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh

First thanks for the fast reply.

To start i tried the command in debug mode and i got operation not permitted at remount. Its ok, system is booted, lets try in recovery mode.

For some strange reason adb dont respond in recovery mode. No devices attached it says. I will try in another computer later.

Recovery mode doesn't have USB debugging enabled for some reason. Boot regular and then do this:

Code:
adb shell
$ su
# mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
You should now be able to delete the update.sh following the previous instructions. No "adb remount" needed.
