Ok now that we got Root on Arc thanks to our devs (Bin4ry...) it's time to move to the next step...recovery!
All the devs who want to discuss, brainstorm, work on and edit recovery for Arc are all invited here.
I don't consider myself a dev so I will let you begin...

Can you check which
/dev/input/eventX [X is a number]
is the Keys under the display?

On X10 it's
/dev/input/event2

f.e.:
You can try it with:
cat /dev/input/event2

now press the keys, do you see some output? If not just try the next one. Until you find the right one for the keys.

Okay,
Flashtool is already prepared for this case!
So we can try it directly. Download latest!!!!! Flashtool (version 2.9.1) and download the chargemon.zip from my attachment.
Flashtool link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=920746

Unzip the file and copy it into flashtool folder:
Flashtool/custom/xRecvery/
overwrite the original chargemon file!

Now open flashtool and and click "Ask Root Permissions", if that had worked you will see that the "xRecovery" Button on the right side gets activated.
Push it now!

When flashtool says -> Recovery installed.
You can reboot the device -> Now push the back button on the device during the booting process. If all works you will be in Recovery

Regards

Flashed the recovery, but it doesn't appear to be loading (tried rebooting while holding the back button, and 'adb reboot recovery')

ok, thanks for testing.

Can you check if the files are there correctly ?

use adb shell and type:

cat /system/bin/chargemon

do you get a readable text or some weird signs?

As an update - I copied the correct version onto the phone (the script) and it still does the same thing

Okay thanks,
maybe this will help.Problem is that we cannot run anything from /data/.....
So Flashtool fails to install it :/

Just run the RunMe.bat
