Hello,
I tried to upgrade my Orange Boston from original Orange 1.6.* img via Apanda 1.6.2 to CyanogenMod, but I got stucked after trying to installing Clockwork Recovery. RomManager always says success when flashing the Recovery. I also tried to flash three diffrent recovery.img in fastboot mode and never got an error, but when I boot from recovery, it hangs with "starting recovery from flash". The status of the Boston is now.

Android: working Apanda 1.6.2
Fastboot: working
Recovery: not booting
Root: im not 100% sure about that it works correct (used androot)

Thanks for your help!
bernd

Try the Official Boston Update 2.1. This will fix your recovery error.

Thank you for your suggestion. I tried this too with the Austrian update. The problem is, that this needs also to boot into recovery for the update.

If you're still having trouble flashing a stock recovery after using CM 6.1 you could try flashing both a stock recovery.img and a stock boot.img.

I have uploaded a stock Orange ES v2.1 recovery.img and boot.img here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=G44U0KK2
Commands are:
fastboot flash boot F0X-0-226D-4012-boot.img
fastboot flash recovery F0X-0-226D-recovery.img
fastboot reboot

Then try to boot into recovery mode. Let us know if this enables you to enter recovery mode.

You can boot into emergency download mode and then run the stock updater. When it is finished it will give you an error because it could not switch back to recovery mode, but that is no problem. The phone will be restored to normal. Just make sure it is done, after error message on your computer. Then disconnect USB cable, remove battery and put battery back in and turn on the phone. To boot into emergency download mode use the following keys.

emergency flash: volume up + red button + power
