    Problem flashing Recovery.img

    I have unlocked the bootloader and now am trying to flash the recovery and get this:


    C:\Users\SugarMouth\Documents\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools>
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0-cyan.img
    error: cannot load 'recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0-cyan.img'

    The phone is in fastboot with a pink "unlocked" logo on top, red fastboot usb and blue bootloader. When I type fastboot devices I get letters and numbers followed by fastboot.

    I can not get it to flash, any ideas? Windows 7
    Nexus S
    HTC HD7
    Galaxy Tab

    Is the "recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0-cyan.img" file in your C:\Users\SugarMouth\Documents\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools folder? It has to be in the same directory as adb (tools) for adb to find it.
    Is
    "recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0-cyan.img" actually this exact type-case? The command in adb is case-sensitive.

    Yes and Yes.

    I have also tried renaming it to Recovery.img to no success.

    I was able to unlock the bootloader so the SDK should be installed correctly right?

    In Cyanogen wiki it says to "right click in an empty space in the tools file for command" I had to right click on the un-opened "tools" folder to get a command, is that right?

    yes, that's correct.
    did you update the Android SDK after unzipping it?

    Also, follow these instructions to get your Android SDK setup correctly:

    Install the Latest Android sdk - CyanogenMod Wiki

    OK I have the SDK in the "my documents folder" Will it help being unzipped into the C: drive?

    I don't know if it's a requirement to be in the root of your C: drive, but every tutorial I've read describes that same procedure. To be certain you've got it pathed right, I'd just follow the instructions I linked.

    Since you already have it extracted, you can just move the "android-sdk-windows" directory to the root of your C: drive and rename that directory to "AndroidSDK", then inside run "SDK Setup.exe" (the full path to this executable should be "C:\AndroidSDK\SDK Setup.exe"). From there, you can follow the procedure I linked above...

    Let me know if that works out.

    Ok moved the file to the C:, opened set up and installed missing drivers. Still not recognizing the phone so I do the next thing in the instructions and remove all HTC/Android drivers and re plug the phone. Error installing phone now. So now I have no drivers and a phone that no longer connects correctly. I download the driver file in the wiki but it does not say what to do with it.

    So at this point I am further behind

    Removed all HTC/Android drivers? Did you download and use USBDeview for that?

    Look at this thread for instructions to remove and reinstall your drivers:

    Ya I downloaded USBDeview. I will try your suggestion and try the drivers again. I might boot up my old XP machine, in the past Vista and Windows 7 gave me problems with errors when jailbreaking iPhones. My Win 7 machinwe has up until now been great, I think I am doing something wrong though.
