    Ak, so I think I messed up during my root. I've been having severe trouble in recovery mode, severe as in it completely fails whenever I try to get into a S/W update, download, or recovery screen. No errors, just semi brick requiring a soft reset to wake it up (and this morning that took some doing)

    Could someone take a look at my partitions and mounts, from what I can gather my recovery partition is just flat out GONE.

    I've got a Nandroid backup, version JWUS12052011 that I would like to get on it so I can apply the ICS update to it. I'm not the original owner and I'd like to do a complete wipe on it. However, since I can't access recovery I have no idea what to do.


    These are what I have to work with:
    Element Clockworkmod Backup Stock P4100_JWUS12052011.zip

    (Contents)
    boot.img
    cache.ext4.tar
    data.ext4.tar
    nandroid.md5
    recovery.img
    system.ext4.tar

    Pantech_Element_OsUpgradeTool_Ver2.5.0.zip
    (contents)

    10,485,760 boot.img
    11,776 cache.ext4.tar
    2,048 data.ext4.tar
    237 nandroid.md5
    10,485,760 recovery.img
    277,303,296 system.ext4.tar

    The first file is a backup that should take it back to a much older version and the second is the upgrade to get it to ICS. I haven't been able to figure out how to force an overwrite of the ICS install using the files from the upgrade and since I can't get into recovery I didn't think a wipe was a very good idea either.

    I know I have what I need here to fix this, I just can't fathom how without recovery.


    Any help would be appreciated.
