Oct 23, 2010

I am rooting an Evo using unrevoked 3.21, everything was going fine until unrevoked says "rebooting into recover... recovery image: clockworkmod recovery" and the phone booted into Clockworkmod Recovery v and it is all normal. but nothing has happened in 20 min. so does that mean it is done? But i thought when I rooted my Incredible that unrevoked told me i was finished... should I select reboot in the clockwork mod? or jsut do a nandroid real quick?

Motorola Milestone : G.O.T Recovery Menu - App2sd Works

Aug 17, 2010

I rooted my milestone yet with G.O.T recovery menu, my first question is how this app2sd works? I read somewhere I shouldn't install busybox. (but I installed it) in open recovery menu I have 5 options to choose:

1- split SDCard (will erase all your data on SDCard)

2-Install App2SD

3-Install Boothack Only

4-Install App2SD (symlink edition)

5-Install Boothack Only (symlink edition) "
which one I have to install, or I have to install all of them...

My next question is, as soon as I rooted my milestone successfully I took a nandroid backup from all my phone with the same open recovery menu, but now when I needed to restore my system, it restore only OS files & I don't have my own Launcher & apps to use, can anyone help what should I do?
I also have another old nandroid backup which I took it with my computer, which is (I think) making backup with old nandroid (backup from unrooted system)

HTC Droid Eris :: Booted Up Steamy Windows And Notification

May 9, 2010

I was letting my 6 year old niece play with my Eris. I booted up Steamy Windows for her to play with and it was quite amusing to her. Anyway, she gave me back the phone and when I went to the home screen I saw an icon in the task bar that I thought was a system update bar. All excited that 2.1 is finally here I pull down the bar to see its a notification from steamy windows thanking me for using it.

Motorola Droid :: Fix - Stock Recovery Coming Back / Custom Recovery Wont Stick

Aug 24, 2010

First off let me say that I was wrong about this issue. Its not an issue with Easy root it is just something built into android. So I apologize to anyone I argued this subject with but specifically Patch. Its also not an issue with rom manager. This applys to users that after flashing a custom recovery they can boot into it once but the next time you try to boot into recovery it has reverted to stock.

This mostly happens to users of easy root or users that use my guide for rooting using Linux

So for the fix.

Download this file and place it in the root of your sd card.

Download Terminal Emulator from the market. The one by the dev Jack Palevich.
Open it and type the following commands.

mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
dd if=/sdcard/ of=/system/etc/
chmod 550 /system/etc/

after that just flash the custom recovery of your choice and you should be good to go.

I tested this on my phone and another user tested it for me and it worked for both of us. If anyone has an issue let me know. This issue is so sporadic that its hard to have people test the fix.

Sprint HTC Hero : Can't Get To Recovery Menu

Sep 15, 2010

I have a Sprint Hero CDMA which is like half-rooted?

It was not rooted, was running on the Sprint 2.1 update. I dropped it back down to .5, got through the rooting aspect, have SuperUser in my app tray, but now it won't let me boot into the recovery menu!

Every time I try, it just pops up a black screen with a phone on it and a big red Caution symbol over it...

Any ideas how to fix this so I can finish rooting my phone or even use the recovery menu options?

HTC Desire :: Flashing ROMs / New Recovery Menu

Sep 22, 2010

I'm currently running Froyo after running the RUU: RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.09.405.8_Radio_32.43.00.
as per teppic74's thread over here: Froyo RUU update available

My desire has HBOOT 083 - which I know can be problematic when flashing. My question is:
Is the unrEVOked v3.21 method of getting the new recovery menu the best/easiest/most reliable way to enable me to flash new roms on my phone? Are there any caveats? Anything I should be aware of beforehand? According to teppic74's thread, this version of Froyo cannot be rooted at the moment, which I'm not bothered about anyway. But, it would be nice to try some of those lovely new roms.

HTC Desire : Unable To Enter Recovery Menu

Sep 21, 2010

I tried installing OpenDesire 4 on my rooted Desire earlier, which didn't work. I ended up seeing the flashing Android logo on a black screen when trying to boot and can't get past it.

So, as I have a nandroid backup, I figured I could use that to recover. BUT, when I hold the volume down button and boot the phone, it just goes to the HBOOT screen. I cannot get into the recovery menu. If I select recovery from HBOOT, it just goes to a black screen.

I have tried reflashing using unrEVOked3 and the recovery-clockwork- image, but it didn't fix this problem.

General :: Can't Access Recovery Menu (black Screen)

Jan 18, 2014

I recently bought a Chinese Mediatek 'pbablet' phone/tablet combination; running Android 4.2.2 Model: MTK6572. Due to it being cheap, it was ideal so I thought, for flashing and development, however I maybe wrong.

However I cannot get it into recovery mode. It won't display the menu when holding down volume + and the power button when powering on.

When pressing these two buttons together on start-up, it actually remains a black screen, and it won't turn on after doing this, and I have to keep pressing the tiny reset button on the side of this device every time I attempt to enter recovery, to get it to turn on as normal again.

Pressing and holding volume - and power at the same time on start-up brings up "Factory mode" (in Chinese) and has no options available for flashing/ROM/ functions, except 'testing' the devices' hardware. This phone doesn't have any other physical buttons except power, volume + and -

I am able to successfully enter CWR by flashing it with MTKDroidTools and rebooting into the recovery mode (while powered up and in the android OS) however I still cannot get into CWR or any recovery mode at all while powering up with power and volume +

I just want to be able to enter a recovery mode on this device, to ensure no future issues and doubts upon the unfortunate events of a permanent brick. My idea is to flash this phablet with ParanoidAndroid; or cyanogenmod, and I could try doing this with a software reset, but then what if the ROM is incompatible, and totally bricks it? Then I have no way in hell to revive and reflash, because I can't access the recovery mode anyway.

I have came to the conclusion that it maybe due to the filesystem, potentially due to it's fbifs, that is the cause to no recovery mode, but what if it's ext4, does any of this make a difference.

Is there any way to make this device open the recovery menu while powering it on?

When I attempt to enter recovery mode while powering up with volume +, the device is basically a brick, until I press reset. It doesn't respond at all. The only way to enter recovery menu is by booting into android resetting the device into recovery mode via an app.

HTC Incredible :: Phone Booted Up / Plugged In Via USB?

Jun 11, 2010

I was able to root my phone with this method when everything else failed. Try this if you have had trouble with other methods. I did not discover this, I heard it from someone on IRC (forgot who).
1. With your phone booted up and plugged in via USB, type adb reboot recovery.
2. Start your adb shell loop (using the while loop or bat file).
3. Click in and out your SD card repeatedly while the phone is booting into recovery (apparently every 0.5 sec will do).
4. Watch for "- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -" to appear in your terminal
5. Follow the rest of the instructions at public:adb_in_recovery [RootWiki]

Android : Detect When Emulator Is Fully Booted

Sep 3, 2010

I want to create a script where I start an emulator and after the system is fully booted, I want to install an .apk.

How can I know when the emulator is fully booted so I can run the install command? Here it is said that adb wait-for-device install <app>.apk is not correct.

So how can I achieve this? Is it possible? Is my only option to sleep for a few minutes until I can be sure that the emulator is started?

General :: Why Won't Phone Boot And Stay Booted

Mar 5, 2012

I have a six month old Epic 4G, rooted, CWM recovery,. I used Root Uninstaller to remove three of the annoying preloaded apps that I never use. Otherwise, my phone is stock. I'm still on the 2nd to last Gingerbread update, as the one that arrived in late Jan won't apply to my rooted phone. I doubt my problem is specific to the device, though, which is why I'm posting here. I have a 32GB SD connected to the phone.

The problem: I have a very irritating "warm reboot:"

1) After booting, the phone is sometimes (not always) extremely laggy. When I use a system monitor to see what is taking the CPU, it appears to be "System" that is taking all the CPU. If the phone is not obviously laggy when starting up, this problem does not occur.
2) The flash card scans always say they complete. It never reboots before these complete.
3) Although the flash scans have completed, it takes quite a while for all of my app icons to load, suggesting it is still going through the SD card.
4) Within a few minutes after booting, the screen goes black and the four soft keys light up. If the screen is already off when this happens, the screen first turns on briefly, and then goes black!
5) About five to fifteen seconds later, the GUI restarts and it starts scanning the flash.

What else I notice:

* The "uptime" reported is not reset, which tells me there was no actual "reboot."

* Once I can get it to boot without doing this, it's stable for days.

* Using the phone right after it boots seems to increase the chance of this happening, but it's hard to say.

* In the past, if I disabled WiFi and 4G and then went into airplane mode, this would greatly reduce the chance of this happening, but now my phone has been constantly warm rebooting even in airplane mode. The phone appears to be getting less stable with time.

* This does not appear to be correlated with phone temperature. The phone can be cool to the touch or warm to the touch and this will happen.

* I've tried wiping all the various caches before. Makes no difference.


1) Is this a known issue that is not present in a 3rd party ROM?

2) Does moving a lot of apps to SD cause this? With only 1/2 GB of built-in app memory, I have no choice but to move almost everything to the SD.

3) Does having a LOT of files on the SD card cause this? I have many nandroid backups on the SD.

4) Is there a real name for this "reboot" that I can Google for? When I search for "reboot loop" or "warm reboot" I get unrelated failures. I saw one thread where someone mentioned a "sense reboot" but that seems to be an HTC thing?

5) If I clear off the SD card, or somehow signal that most directories are not to be scanned, will this make a difference?

6) How can I figure out what is going on, why the phone is restarting the UI? Does Android have a boot-up problem of being at 100% CPU for a few minutes that automatically causes a UI reset? As I said, once the phone boots without doing this warm boot, it will be stable for days.
