Launch Recovery without a PC on your EVO4G

Launch Recovery without a PC on your EVO4G

XDA forum members Koush and paulobrien have been busy again, and have put together a technique to get recovery running on the EVO without using a PC!

Originally posted by paulobrien:

Fake-Flash using a similar concept to the original root method, it launches a recovery image from the test image recovery, but instead of pushing the files from a PC, the files are extracted from the update.zip on the SD card.

An easy way of downloading and installing the recovery is using ROM Manager, which is a free app by Koush, available on the Market.  This will also install the recovery update.zip to /sdcard/update.zip.

If you’d rather download manually, Koush has also provided instructions for this method.

Note that Fake-Flash is only for devices rooted with a test image, and will not work on the unrevoked root.

For more information, check out the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
