    Isn't it volume down + back + power that boots into recovery?

    If you'd pull the battery and let it boot up normally, does it load your OS, or did that somehow get lost in the process?
    I'm an *****! You know, I never really thought of trying to let it boot normally. I just tried...and it did. :-) So I guess now I can just try and reflash the recovery or should I not do that?

    I have the old screen. I used adb when I first rooted about a year ago but have not used it since.

    Try this. It will put an old version of cwm on your phone

    I'd give it another shot. That's why we don't install a new recovery AND a ROM at the same time. Always leave yourself in a position where you know at least one of them is working.

    The download links seem to be broken. Thanks for the help though. I'll try to find that file elsewhere on the web real quick.

    Just found out qpst can talk to the phone with this recovery.. It can't in iho recovery. Great news for anyone wanting to update prl
    I just finally succeeded in changing my PRL tonight. Was a bit of an ordeal, until after all else failed, I tried using CDMA Workshop while booted into recovery. That ended up being the only way I could get it to not only connect to my COM port, but also fully communicate with my phone to read my MSL.

    I just wanted to let you all know that thanks to pbailey212, DizzmalDan420, CuriousN00b, and LeslieAnn, my phone is now back online, and with the new "touch" recovery no less! I and all of us in these forums couldn't have done these things without all of you! Thank you very much! -Roger

    Is there no MD5 for this? My connection isn't very stable lately and I don't want to flash without checking.

    Check to see if theres one on the OS forum. But I copied everything from there.

    There's not no; little slow on the response on my part but...

    Here is a fresh compiled build of th7 (no changes, just resynced my local repo to make sure I had the right one stuff; I've been trying to hack amend back into this thing [way more difficult than one might hope])

    And an md5sum: 918a1cd72fcbac6b72c23fc83db58b8a

    Don't expect me to make a habit of this (while I've been helping out this is totally Drew's baby); Drew is not available for me to run this by him but I don't think he'll have any issues being that we're trying to confirm you flash an intact version

    Thanks.

    It seems it's standard to post hashes for ROMs. I figured it would be even more important to check a recovery before flashing. No offense to Drew or anyone else, but it's kind of hard to trust someones coding if they don't think it's important to provide a way to verify file integrity.

    Download CWMT Recovery v5.0.2.7-th7

    By clicking the link below you agree that you are flashing this recovery image at your own risk. Neither myself, drewwalton19216801, Team Hydro, nor anyone but yourself are responsible for any problems that may occur before, during or after flashing this recovery image.

    http://www.teamhydro.net/downloads/R...7_thunderc.img

    added link with md5sum thanks to sblood86

    recovery-th7.img

    md5sum: 918a1cd72fcbac6b72c23fc83db58b8a
    Any idea why these two files md5sums are different? Is one a later version?

    The one downloaded from teamhydro gives:
    bda76ec1214f88eeb922d05fb18fa1e7

    The one from sblood86's link gives the md5 you posted:
    918a1cd72fcbac6b72c23fc83db58b8a

    What differences are there between these files?

    For now, I'm sticking with the teamhydro link, unless you know why sbloods is different?

    Sblood synced with his repo so I'm assuming that is why the md5s are different. There's no difference in the recoveries in the links.

    I have updated the OP to state that this recovery should not be used with LeslieAnns radio update zip. I appologize for not updating it sooner. I am without a pc and no longer using VM and barely use my OV. Planning on ebaying my OV but will try to keep this recovery up to date untill drew starts an official OV thread.
