sending ‘recovery’ (4594 KB)… OKAY
writing ‘recovery’… OKAY

# ./fastboot-mac reboot

  • Flash the radio image

Now flash the radio once the phone rebooted to recovery RA 1.7.0 by pressing the home button while rebooting
– select install zip from sdcard and choose the radio image , once the installation is done reboot the phone and make sure that you have the 2_22_19_26I base band version

This will update the Hboot to 1.33.2005,  this is required to increase the ROM size to hold the cm6 image.

  • flash the cyanogen mode 6 images

The important thing is dont install the full version of google apps on ADP1 just use the MDPI tiny version. otherwise the phone cannot boot properly.
