k ive rooted my phone and im on jf1.5 but i dont have the recover.img with test keys..so i need to update my recover.img to 1.3..so ive downloaded it i tried flashing it with fastboot and on my computer i get error device not found..so i read this thread and i think i read that u can just place the recovery.img on your sdcard and go to recovery mode and pass alt+S to update or so that wrong wha do i have to do if im already rooted with a hardspl and jf1.5 plz help i like to do a back-up so i can get jf1.5.1..thanx
looking at how the file is set up, I doubt it is signed, there for renaming it update and loading it through recovery is not an option. try using terminal and copy the file "recovery_testkeys.img " to /data/local/ and reboot. I'll try writing a terminal script, tell me how it works.
Copy "recovery_testkeys.img" to SD card root and unmount cell phone.
In Terminal you should get a $, type:
$ su <enter>
#mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system #cp -f recovery_testkeys.img /data/local/recovery.img # cd /system # cat /data/local/recovery.img > recovery.img # flash_image recovery recovery.img #reboot
your system should restart after this, while it is shutting off, press and hold home until your phone boots into the new recovery menu, if you goto bootloader (RGB screen) then something is a miss. yank your battery out and reboot without holding any buttons down at that point to get back into the system.
