    the other folders are on the phone and not the sdcard. the .bin file and the image file go on the phone and the others go onto the root of the sdcard. ummm, it think there is a post on the first page about this. maybe second.

    it's the 6th post.

    it will tell you this if you haven't loaded the image correctly. have you made certain that steps 7-10 were done successfully?

    so this is what i am doing lol and i guess i am doing it wrong...... no matter if i think i am following it to the t lol
    i copy the 2 files to the sd card zip and the image
    run the command prom as administrate and copy the other 2 files to the phone no error.... (adb push flash_image /data/local/
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/)

    now these lines i enter them line by line
    "adb shell
    chmod 0755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    chmod 0755 /data/local/flash_image"

    (now the phone goes into sleep mode)

    again i enter lines one by one and no error
    "cd /data/local/tmp
    ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin"

    now i enter wireless setup and toggle on and off airplane mode,,,,, and on the cm i see "if you like what we are doind... we also acept donation 1000 usd!

    adb connection will be reset

    i see #

    and then i do the last steps and it reboots to hboot and it gives me that message that its older.........

    alright, you didn't put in your post the following steps:

    Code:
    cd /data/local
    ./flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
    you need this part or you will get the error you are getting. did you omit it in your post or in the process?

    yes i did left it out but i put it in the command....
    the reason why i left it out is bc i notice that when ever i get the error in the hboot it ask me to reboot and i hit yest for the past 2 times this time i hit no and it did the same search on the sd card and it ask me to update lol
    thank you for your help (just wondering firmware say 2.1-update 1 is that the correct downgrade?)



    now i am going yo use simpleroot
    any tips ?

    i believe my confusion set you back some time. my bad for that. and on simple root -- i must i admit i have never used it. i was rooted before it came out. as far as i know it is pretty straight forward, though.

    Used Simpleroot for the first time today. It is VERY easy. Just make sure you follow the directions in the command windows.

    I know this was directed at UTnick but I figured id give my opinion as well.

    Yes. Smart idea. After I get my phone all setup and configured the way I like it I make a Nandroid backup. If anything starts acting funky I can wipe phone and restore from that.

    Always a good idea to back up your stuff.

    hey Luce
    Thank you for the quick reply..............i dont mind if you are able to answer it.


    for any one who many know the answer
    i hope you dont mind if i ask you a question
    my question.....
    i have clockwork as my recovery (loving the clockwork since it reminds me of my old psp mods) i notice that i am able to erase everything of the sd and restore the phone to factory settings and the clockwork is still there. i also download rom manager free to start adding a stock rom and then do a full nandroid backup of froyo 2.2.

    so rom manager is so post to be link to clockwork.
    -what is flash clockworkmod recovery? (b.c i get an error "privileged commands)
    -will rom mannager reconize that i have clockwork (flash with simple root)
    -how would i wipe to flash a rom?

    IT WORKED FLAWLESSLY!!!! WOOOOTT!!!!!!

    Now I have to actually root. I've heard nothing but bad things about unrevoked so I'm gonna use simple root. But what exactly do I do first? I'm gonna put the suggested stock 2.2 ROM and back it up. I just don't know what I have to do.

    1. That will flash clockwork as your default recovery. (which you already have) If you are getting an error it sounds like either you dont have root or Rom Manager is blocked. Do you have a SuperUser app? If so make sure Rom Manager isnt denied access.

    2. Yes.

    3. Turn off phone, Press Vol Down while turning phone on. Load Recovery. Wipe options are in there. (Im sorry I am not more descriptive. Phone is not in front of me to look at) When using Rom Manager and selecting Flash Rom, it will give you the option to wipe at that time and do it for you automatically.

    Hope this helps. If any one sees that I am wrong about anything PLEASE correct me.

    I did a little looking around the interwebz. I found a possible solution.

    "The ADB server binds and listen to port 5037. If that port is taken and/or if the daemon is already running, you'll see that error message.

    Start task manager and kill adb.exe (all the instances of it).

    If that don't work, try rebooting your computer and your phone, and trying again. "

    I dont believe the rom included with Simpleroot came with Superuser now that I think about it (I only had it a few minutes before I flashed AC-rom).
    I think this one is beyond me.

    Hopefully one of the more advanced users can help. :-(
