    I have followed the instructions numerous times from several postings and cannot get past the terminal emulator commands to flash the recovery.img
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    flash_image: not found

    It cannot find the original recovery.img to be replaced by the one on my sdcard.
    Where to i get the original recovery.img and where do I install it?

    Thanks in advance

    U need to do this command first
    # cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin/flash_image
    # chown root.shell /system/bin/flash_image
    # chmod 0755 /system/bin/flash_image
    then do that and it should work if u did everything right

    ok, I tried first line and got cp: cant stat /sdcard/flash_image; No such file or directory.
    From reading other threads, I downloaded orginal recovery.img I think I need to extract original flash_image from zip, move to sd card and then try your
    commands?? flash_image does not appear to be included after new update is applied? the video and instructions need to be updated on forum?????

    SWEET.... got it thanks psphacker06 Here is what I had to do, and you may want to add to instructions:
    I downloaded old original update.zip, extracted flash_image file to sdcard, then ran your line 1 as above
    line 2 would not take, said file not found, so i tried line 3 and it worked, i then ran
    # flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
    # reboot recovery
    and now have Market and all google....... THANK YOU AGAIN ( I was about to poke myself in the eye)
