Hi,
Can someone help me with this error? While flashing Amon's recovery I get the below error.

sending 'recovery' (33 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: image error! (BootMagic check fail))

I have successfully unlocked my bootloader and rooted my Nexus One. Any help is appreciated.

I recently had the same problem, hence why I found this post...

I had right clicked on Amon's link to download and also had a 33kb file. Make sure to follow the link and download from RapidShare.

Hope this helps :)

Quoted from your post. Watch:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>fastboot flash
recovery radio.img

Look closely at the 2 parts I've underlined. I hope you'll see the error. In case you don't - just look if they're the same word.

Wow. That is a huge and scary mistake, what if they had it the other way around and flashed the recovery to the radio. Yikes! Instant broken phone, and all because of a lack of understanding of what is actually going on.

I once saw a guy get hit by a car. I tried to put him in the recovery position, but put him in the radio position instead. Needless to say, he wasn't pleased... xD

Sent from my Nexus One using XDA App

The good thing is that fastboot checks for image integrity, and it would probably stop and not allow overwriting radio with different partition.

Hi Guys, im having the same issue with my HOXL.
I read ur post and see the file should be bigger?

I downloaded TWRP from their download page, from the link on an XDA thread.
And its actually the same place i got it from last time, and that time it worked.

C:\Users\Compaq\Downloads\Android\PC Apps\OneXRoot>fastboot flash recovery openr
ecovery-twrp-2.2.2.0-endeavoru.img
sending 'recovery' (0 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.142s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: image error! (BootMagic check fail))
finished. total time: 0.175s

Any ideas?
