I found a way to return to the recovery 2e

recovery 2e


Copying a file using the Root Explorer

Quote:

# unzip and put archive contents in a folder called recovery2e on /sdcard/
# first mount -o remount,rw /system (important options in Root Explorer for do this)
# file recovery copy to /system/bin (and replace)
# xbi folder contents copy to /system/xbin/ (and replace)


Method by captive thanks buddy

Quote:

# put archive contents in a folder called recovery2e on /sdcard/
# open a shell and get root (ADB or Terminal on Phone, type su and pres enter / accept )
# remount /system rw (busybox mount -o remount,rw /system)
# rename recovery in /system/bin to recovery3e (for backup purposes)
# copy "recovery" from /sdcard/recovery2e/ to /system/bin/ (cp /sdcard/recovery2e/recovery /system/bin/)
# copy the folder /sdcard/recovery2e/xbin/recovery to /system/xbin/ (cp -rr /sdcard/recovery2e/xbin/recovery /system/xbin/)
# enjoy!

Didn't work for me - used root explorer method. Now just hangs when I try to get recovery mode. Can get download mode ok still, and phone boots ok of course. Running JPM with root and voodoo5 3. Anything else to try?

it no works.

Phone: Doc's JP6 + voodoo pre3 + rooted

Method: Root explorer.

1, during copy the xbin folder to system, it shows "replace files" but after i check inside the system/xbin, the files are disappared??!! I did manually copy everything one after one from xbin to system/xbin, but i can't see where they are after copy.

2, anyway, i reboot the phone with 3b combo, the recovery mode still showing 3e.

so i say it no works. anyone tried the cable methed?

Could you please update the instruction for jp6 + voodoo pre4?

abd remount (don't know why) isn't working and /system is always ro so adb push and shell (adb shell works) cmd aren't working.

It is correct to remove su and busybox int the extracted folder since i have both already installed?

I was on JPM, followed the instructions.

Phone couldn't boot, lost ability to enter recovery. Luckily I could still enter Download mode, flashed to JPM, but being on voodoo kernel before that, didn't managed to disable lagfix before getting into this trouble - Couldn't revert back to RFS, and without ability to enter recovery to format.

Finally reverted back to Eclair firmware, could see my beloved recovery again. No way I'm going through the above again.

The above is just my own experience, for reference just in case someone is as unlucky as me.

This is the clear step on recovering the recovery2e

Recover recovery2 e

1. uncompress the downloaded file recovery 2e and copy the direcotry to sdcard and rename it to recovery2e
2. Using root explorer copy File recovery from recovery2e on sdcard to /system/bin
3. Using root explorer copy Folder recovery in xbin to /system/xbin
4. If did not work try copy xbin folder over /system/xbin folder

Your method DO NOT work at all. I cannot enter recovery mode.
Fortunately download mode is still available.
