While rooting my phone, I didn’t pay attention and entered
fastboot flash recovery boot-fairphone-fp2-su-nocrypt-r165.img
fastboot flash boot boot-fairphone-fp2-su-nocrypt-r165.img
Since I was unable to find any useful, coherent documentation on this stuff* , I’m currently not even sure I broke anything. I don’t want to reboot (still in fastboot mode atm) without having to, since I need recovery to flash a new recovery, yes?
So, can anyone explain how it is with smartphones: Is the recovery image contained in the .img file created by this method, using method 1A, or have I just killed my recovery image (which I suspect, it being an image, after all). Where can I get a stock recovery image to flash over the wrongly flashed one (I noticed none in the
downloads support section of this page)? Or is there a method prior to rebooting to undo a flash?
*seriously, I have this problem with smartphones. I use linux a lot, and figured it can’t be that hard to find documentation, but apart from either incredibly technical details (learn all of adb from the reference) or step-by-step directions for special cases I can’t seem to find anything intermediate. Am I looking in the wrong places? For comparison, it’s easy to learn how linux bootloading works in simple steps, beginning with what the partitioning does, but it’s hard to find an explained smartphone partition table, and even harder to find out how to list your own.
