Whenever I try to flash the new Clockworkmod 3.0.0.5 recovery image, I get an error message:

I:\android-sdk-windows\tools>fastboot flash recovery 3005.img
  sending 'recovery' (4170 KB)... OKAY [  0.750s ]
            writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.750s


I am at a loss to what I need to do... I really want to be able to flash the latest nightlies, but this recovery is necessary and I can't find a way to successfully flash it...

Does anyone know what I need to do? The phone is booted into FASTBOOT USB mode, and everything is hooked up correctly. The command "fastboot devices" returns the usual "HTxxxxxxxxxxx" result. I am currently running Cyanogenmod 6.1.1 with Clockworkmod Recovery version 2.5.1.3.

Thanks in advance!

Yup, I'm having the exact same problem here, Running Ubuntu and have adb / fastboot setup correctly. I only got the device today, but it came rooted and installed with Cyanogenmod. My current Hboot is 0.85.0005 VISION PVT SHIP S-OFF, and my radio is 26.03.02.26_M

You can try again by rename the recovery to recovery.img. Than use: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Hope that this works for you

Try by putting the fastboot binary and recovery.img in your SDK/tools folder and try to flash it from the tools directory.

If that doesn't work maybe this site can helpt you with that:http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7500/32481-howto-linux-adb-fastboot-mass-storage.html

Same error from the tools directory, I can assure you that fastboot/adb are setup correctly I've migrated from the G1, and it worked with it flawlessly, Do you think it could be my Hboot? I couldn't find any info on what the latest one is?

Thanks!

Here is the link to anyone else who needs it http://forum.xda-dev..._UNNECESSARY.21

Alternatively, there is an easier method of getting Clockwork 3.x which I followed and can confirm works here: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=900460

the other way is just to use the Terminal

su
flash_image recovery recovery.img

then reboot into recovery system ;)

Here is how i did it..
First make sure that img file is in the root of you sdcard.

Open Terminal Emulator
Type in
SU
Then Hit Enter
Example:
$SU
#

Type in
flash_image recovery /sdcard/(what ever the name of the IMG file).img
Hit Enter
Example:
#flash_image recovery /sdcard/CWM3005UPDATE.img
#

Wait about 45 Seconds the hold your power button and reboot to recovery.
The new recovery should be ORANGE in Color. CWM 3.0.0.5

Remember when typing in Terminal Emulator it is case sensitive.

Simplest is always best. I dispense with adb and run commands from a terminal emulator whenever possible. Makes life muuuuuuch simpler ;)
