This is in reguards to putting on a recovery.

I but the phone in fastboot then go into SDK tools and click on Fastboot and it opens then closes in under one second. I have the recovery image fill in the same folder as well.

This is driving me crazy and I can't figure it out!

Thanks for the info in advance!

Happy New Years!

I really appreciate all the input!

Sorry for the ignorance as I'm still learning this whole HTC thing. I came from the Droid X. Ugh, what a change!

Theres a good walkthrough in the development section. Here's the short version.

First off its very similar to unlocking(same tools needed)
1) copy your recovery image to wherever you have fastboot on your PC(for this example say c:\android
2) reboot your phone into hboot(power down, then power up holding power + volume down)
3) choose fastboot on the phone
4) plug the phone into your PC
5) open a command prompt on your PC
6) change directory to c:\android(or where you have fastboot)
7) run "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img " (where recovery.img = your recovery file
8) reboot

Done

I'm going to thank you for this, too. I don't know if it's because I know how to do this now after doing it so much over the past week or so, but that was the easiest explanation I've seen of flashing a recovery. Nice job :D

This is a great explanation but this is what it says:

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash recovery reco
very.img
error: cannot load 'recovery.img'

Now when you say put it in the same directory does that mean the same folder?

Thanks!
