I am trying to flash my Motorola Milestone to clockwork recovery using the linux executable sbf_flash.

Here is what I enter
 
jaga@jaga-desktop:~/Downloads$ ./sbf_flash -r --recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.1-sholes.img MC1_A855_1282081087_Recovery-Only_SPRecovery_0.99.3b.sbf 

Open in new window


And here is what is get:

SBF FLASH 1.23 (mbm)

 !! Reboot phone into bootloader. 

Open in new window



Which I do reboot the phone into the bootloader by holding down the x. But then the PC terminal screen never changes ,responds, or says "flashing" or anything like that.


I have tried unplugging the phone and plugging it in only when the yellow exclamation mark is there (bootloader screen) but that doesn't work.

Nevermind, I already had open recovery installed which was good enough to flash Cyanogen mod 7
