Motorola Droid :: Can't Get Nandroid To Work / Unable To Open - Cache - Recovery - Command
Feb 13, 2010
So I am trying to root my phone I am at the point where I am rooted and I have made a nandroid backup. I have moved those files to my computer and put the bugless beast nandroid files in their place. The problem is when I go to Droidroothelper and select reboot/recovery my phone reboots and the /! comes up on my screen and a line on the bottom says E: can't open /cache/recovery/command......
any tips I dont know what to do to load the nandroid backup of the bugless beast.
I took unrooted my phone today because I was going to excange it for a new one because of a loose headphone jack but it turns out it was my headphones. I used SMupdater and it went fine. now when I try ot root again I get a "can't open cache/recovery/command" error in recovery and it wont let me select any of the options by hitting the camera button. idk what to do
So, has anyone with this error been able to push the update through? i read (cant find it now) that this has something to do with OTA updates. the way i understood it was, this is a folder Verizon looks for during an update. so if thats true would it cause me to get stuck in on the MOTO LOGO screen?
I was having black SLCD (RUU_Bravo_HTC_WWE_1.21.405.2_T2_Radio_32.41.00.32 U_4.08.00.09_release_137222_signed.exe) and have solved the problem right now and do OTA update to Froyo and there is System Info.:
I have installed UD8 for about a week now. But ever since I have flashed some kernels (slayers 1100lv, chevys 1100 lv, p31200) I have not had the stability nor the quickness that the original 800 stock kernel gave.
I made a nandroid backup b4 flashing those roms..so my question is this: Do i have to wipe cache/data before i flash my nandroid backup? Or can i just flash it w/o doing any extra steps?
Following the big guide and I am at the nanroid backup stage in the recovery utility. I've got Android system recovery utility Use trackball to highlight, click to select. Options: Reboot system now [home+back] Apply sdcard:update.zip [alt+s] Wipe data/factory reset [alt+w] Then at the bottom it says E: Cant open /cache/recovery/command Thats the full screen, nothing about backup/restore
When I am trying to build my application as a part of image I am getting the following error :
E/dalvikvm( 1334): Can't open dex cache '/data/dalvik-cache/ system@a...@firstname.lastname@example.org': No such file or directory I/dalvikvm( 1334): Unable to open or create cache for /system/app/ test.apk (/data/dalvik-cache/system@a...@email@example.com) E/Util( 1334): Class Not Found : java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
But when I push the apk manually to the device (into system/app), it works fine.
I am wondering why is it so as both ways the apk is present at system/ app only.
I have just recently rooted my wife's phone because she saw a couple of themes she wanted and I informed her the only way to get themes like what she was looking at (J-Rummy's Pink Life) was to root and rom the device and then theme it. So what I did was just root the phone using RSD Lite by installing SPRecovery on her phone and then applying the root update.zip file to the device. No problems from that point on. I did that a few days ago. I just went ahead and purchased Rom Manager for easier application of Roms/Themes. I downloaded Lithium Mod/Pink-Life Rom and then selected clear data and cache and install. I have run into nothing but problems. I am getting constant force closes, system freezes, reboots, etc. So, first thing I think of is, different kernel. Same thing. I try three different kernels and get the same problems. I then decide to just revert back to her previous setup (clean 2.1 with Root access). Everything is back to normal with no issues at all except for the fact the wife wants a Pink Rom.
I then decide to try BB 0.4, thinking maybe it had something to do with the ROM. I installed it the same way as I did the last one. I did everything through ROM Manager. Got the same results. I just wanted to make sure I listed everything I did so maybe there could be some different insight on what is going wrong, but my question is...is it better to reboot into recovery and wipe data/cache and then install from recovery or just install through Rom Manager? I know that sounds dumb because Rom Manger boots into recovery anyway and does exactly what you would have done, but does it truly do it the same is my question? If the answer is yes, Rom Manager takes care of all that for you, then does anyone know of anything else I could try to maybe get a ROM running on this device without all of these problems? I am running out of ideas. I have even tried installing it through SPRecovery (changing the name to update.zip of course).
So I just got my droid today, got it rooted, reflashed and booted the recovery image for the nandroid backup and performed a nandroid backup. This was all with the droid plugged into my computer.
Then I downloaded BB and when I went to do an nandroid restore i couldn't get it to boot into the new recovery mode...I keep getting the stock reboot symbols
anyone have any ideas? I just looked in my root of the SD card.....the nandroid folder is there, the back up I made is there, so is there a reason i am getting the stock recovery image when i hold down x and the power button?
im trying to use droid root help but it wont work for some reason. i go through the whole process and reboot into recovery but i have to nandroid sub menu and i still have the standard recovery img. i got my droid today and it updated to 2.0.1 and im just trying to get nandroid working so i can backup and get the multitouch browser. if you had a good tutorial on that id like that too. thanks!
This is #2 on the Android bug tracker, and it needs to be fixed for those of us that need Hands-Free phone control during driving. Everyone interested can 'star' it to keep it on the top of the list. No comments to the bug are necessary. Clicking the star on the left adds to the number of complaints.
Up until now I have been able to open attachments with no problem but now I cant seem to be able to open any. I get the email and the paper clip is there but I cant do anything with it. No long press, or tap, or double tap or anything. Its just not opening anything. Done battery pull but still a no go.
I have exchange set up on my Droid through the email program that comes with the phone.. Its been working fine until this weekend, really. 3 separate times, it's failed to load my inbox or sync new messages, and it pops up with the unable to open connection to server message.Ive quadruple checked all of my settings, removed my account, re-added my account, refreshed it, and still, it wont sync my inbox and it still shows that message. I even tried installing touchdown, and touchdown wouldnt sync my email either? I didnt like how it kept my contacts all separate from my gmail contacts, so I went ahead and uninstalled it. I REALLY just want to use the regular exchange email program..But get this, I am able to sync my sent mail though, and Im able to SEND email messages, just not receive them.
We have our own exchange server for our company, and we have 4 other people in our office running exchange on their phones, (2 Motorola Droids, 1 Droid X, and an HTC 6800...) Nobody else is having issues with their phones syncing their email so I know this isnt an exchange issue, but a phone issue instead.Ive run an update (just the *228) on my phone, reset it like 3 times, killed all the apps, and it still wont sync my inbox (just my sent mail..) And again, it'll send email but wont receive it.I know calling or going into a verizon store will be a waste of time.
I just came across my first downfall with moving the dalvik to SD. Nandroid is stuck trying to backup cache. Im guessing the reason is that nandroid cant find the dalvik because it is not symbollically linked by S2e since we arent booted into the actaul OS. Anyway i can get nandroid to backup without moving it back?
"Unable to open connection to server." That's the message I'm getting from my Droid every time I try to set up a connection to my web hosts SMTP server using IMAP. The settings I put in the Droid work fine on my laptop and on my blackberry.
I've tries using ports 25, 1025, 465 and 587. I even tried 143 and 585. Anyone have any clue why this is happening? Anyone else having trouble with SMTP/IMAP connections to their email server? Right now I can't send emails from the Droid and that's a HUGE problem.
i formatted all partitions installed bbv0.4 again. now i cant get clockworkmod recovery to work. i have reflashed and it still hangs up on the white M screen everytime. i tried to hold x and power down and it did the same thing! i cant download anything from rom manager or backup my phone!
I'm on the leaked 2.2 and for some reason I can't seem to get bootstrap recovery to work. It's installed on my phone and when I press Bootstrap Recovery it says sucess but when I try to reboot into recovery nothing happens (my goal is to eventually install the ApeX rom) any suggestions?
My company's exchange server is similar to mail.company.com/exchange, but when I put in that address, it removes the "/exchange" and it gives me an error saying "Unable to open connection to server". Is there a way around this, or am I stuck without the ability to sync my work email?
I have a MotoDroid that has Froyo 2.2... I rooted it and am running a new rom. I was trying to boot into recovery using rom manager and it doesnt work. I also tried holding the x and power button down to reboot and it wont work either. It just shows the "M" for a long time then flashes "M" comes up again and in load like normal or it sometimes freezes and I have to take the battery out. just also tried to back up current rom and that doesnt work either.
Ok i have not been able to find any answers what so ever regarding the people that can not find the backup/restore option after entering the recovery mode. I have recently rooted using the new z4root application. I get a skull and crossbones supper user app, and was wondering if that means its different than the one with the ninja icon that everyone else gets.
Anyways, When i go to make a nandroid back up, i follow the steps to the letter, but when i get to the recovery menu, my options stop after the wipe baseband data option. there is absolutely nothing else there that says anything about backup/restore option everyone seems to be screaming about. Its not there!
Now please can someone figure out a solution to this problem?
My recovery looks like as follows: Android system recovery <3e>
Use d-pad to highlight: center to select.
reboot system now apply sdcard:update.zip wipe data/factory reset wipe cache partition wipe baseband data
Why does POP3 suck on droid? why did motorola release a pda that has such a problem with simple emails? Its not like theres even pictures or detail in the email. whats the problem? i hate buying the latest and greatest and discovering its not as good as years ago. even my gmail doesnt alert me half the time when i have mail. blackberry was alot slower but a million times faster with important mail.
Has anyone else noticed that when they turn WiFi on through the widget (either android or motorola one) it doesn't always actually turn on wireless?
I usually have to go to WiFi settings and then once I do that it connects to my router. This will keep happening until I restart the phone and then the widget will work another 1-2 times and then I'll have to go into the settings menu until I restart again.
Unrelated: Has anyone else had their 3G dropout today or is it just me? I'm in the northeast.
