    People unfamiliar with cmd are probably having a little trouble. Use the command "cd c:\adb" to change directories to the adb folder.

    To get into recovery once you get to the factory reset screen and it asks you to confirm,do that and as soon as you see the next screen press the menu button. Next to the home button. If i remember right that's it.

    When I get to the c:\abd directory and enter the command it says daemon starting something or another but then eventually concludes to "Device not found"
    ?? I'm in the debug mode.

    try this command too make sure your phone is connected

    adb devices
    if you dont get anything back. unplug the usb from the pc and plug into another usb port and redo adb reboot recovery. hope that helps

    I need some help. I have the update.zip (not "zip.zip")on my sd card and adb on my pc. I can get C drive into adb and can even get it to run. My problem is that my phone only stays in recovery for about 3 seconds and boots up. I've been working on this for quite awhile and not sure what else to do. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

    Never mind...got it!!!!!

    After months of lurking, this thread finally pushed me into registering. I downloaded the update.zip, put it on the root of my sdcard, and rebooted into recovery via adb (I have a little prior experience, having rooted both an OG Droid and, hilariously enough, a Nook. I have not rooted the Viper, BTW). After rebooting into recovery and selecting the update, I'm instead getting "E: signature verification failed", and it craps out. I'm redownloading the update.zip now (v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y... c'mon, sendspace!), but are there any ideas as to what could be the problem?

    If anyone else is having this issue...i used the unbrick method (may have been extreme) to restore the original system files and them the update.zip went through fine

    Thank you for sharing :-) I'm excited about putting this onto my lg viper.

    I have a pretty fast web server...Would it be okay to post a mirror of the update.zip file?

    Here is a simple method to open a command prompt. From explorer go to "Computer" then locate c:\ open "C" and look for the adb folder. While holding shift right click on the folder and look for the option "Open command window here". I hope this helps you get to the proper directory :-)

    FYI - You can go up a directory by typing cd..

    Thank you. I do appreciate your help, but i can get adb to put my phone in recovery. its just that the recovery lasts only 3 seconds after reboot. then the phone reboots again and comes back to normal.

    Are you rooted? I just did the process today while rooted using ROM Manager to reboot me into recovery.

    Thanks VenumX...I am having the same problem since I removed all of the Sprint bloatware, including Sprint ID (sprintid.apk), after I rooted my phone, but the only thing holding up the install is the Sprint ID failure message. I was googling to try and see if I can just download and install Sprint ID as a stand-alone install but I haven't found a sure fire way to do that so I will try the unbrick method that you used.
