My username is actually evo and when I right click and go into properties the path of the file is /home/evo/Desktop

You should be running this then:

Code:
chmod 0755 /home/evo/desktop/emmc_recover
Code:
/home/evo/desktop/emmc_recover --flash hboot_1.4.nb0 --device /dev/sdb13

So I got through this part, thank you! I was missing a slash before home, lol.


However, still nto smooth sailing. It asks are you sure, I hit enter, and now it says cannot read image file hboot_1.4.nb0

If it's not 1 thing it's another.

Yeah, these are exactly what I'm typing (was missing the / before home though, DOH!).

Now the problem is after I hit enter when it asks are you sure.

Well ensure that the hboot_1.4 is on the desktop as well, and if it is, it could be a bad file. So try re-downloading the file.

You can have it pull up a console to see if it's doing something by pressing the 'ESC' key on your keyboard after you go past the boot selection list and the Android Robot shows on the screen.

Edit: Also, if that doesn't work, try to find an option in the Universal USB Installer for openSUSE 12.x, which is what the Live CD is based on.

Tried making a boot disk again using the openSUSE option, for some reason it still didn't want to boot on my desktop. I'd choose the option to boot it, it'd show loading kernel, screen would go black for a second, then back to the blue screen with the little green robot. ESC would do nothing. I let it sit for 10 minutes to no avail.

However, using the new USB drive, my laptop booted into linux with no problems. Now that I've got that set up, it's time to brick. Got my fingers crossed Thanks for the help!

EDIT:
Got it bricked on the first try. Counted 5 "Mississippi" and got the dim red light (very hard to see!). Running the 1.13 RUU now! Woohoo!

Thanks everyone!

Just redownloaded (from the attachment in the first post) and copied it to the desktop (right next to the emmc_recover). I told it to replace the one that was already there when asked.

Same error. Cannot read image file hboot_1.4.nb0

What happens when you put it in the home folder and use /home/ubuntu

Only reason I ask is because that's what worked for me.

Old or new syslinux ... or does it matter? For the life of me I can't get the program to show properly on my netbook after the initial menu screen. (screen snow) My native resolution is 1366 x 768 and I've tried lower resolutions with no luck at all! My phone has been "bricked" for 5 days and I'm having all kinds of trouble with the Linux, 3rd step.

For your issue, use the following command:

Code:
/home/evo/desktop/emmc_recover --flash /home/evo/desktop/hboot_1.4.nb0 --device /dev/sdb13
And repeat it 3-4 times, using /dev/sdc13, etc etc.
