I ended up looking at Cyanongenmod's source code and figured out how they did it. Here is my working .sh script: echo 'boot-recovery ' > /cache/recovery/command echo '--update_package=/sdcard/update.zip' >> /cache/recovery/command reboot recovery
It looks like the CyanogenMod installation instructions for M7 are missing a section for flashing ClockworkMod recovery onto the phone. Right after you unlock the bootloader, you need to do the following: Download and install Android SDK Tools from here (expand the "Download for Other Platforms", and it should be under the "SDK Tools Only" section.) ...
I just did this! /data/property/persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib is a textfile containing one of two values: 'libart.so' or 'libdvm.so'. You can change from ART to Dalvik simply by editing this file. Ex: adb shell 'echo libdvm.so >/data/property/persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib'

To sideload correctly, you need to pick that option from the recovery first and then when the phone is waiting for the sideload type, adb sideload <PACKAGE> If you want to push the file to the phone's sdcard, you could try, adb push <PACKAGE> /sdcard/ That should copy the ...
Check that you have USB debugging ticked in developer settings. If that doesn't work I would uninstall all the drivers relating to your phone and start again from scratch.

I'm thinking those options would be for flashing a new kernel, not a recovery image. try either "heimdall --help" or look at a cyanogenmod wiki page for another device to see an appropriate recovery flash command ...this would also ...
There are different boot combos for different galaxies. On my phone it is up + home + power. Sometimes I have to hold it for almost two minutes for some reason. If you cant boot injto recovery then boot into bootloader/downloadmode and flash there with .exe like odin or heimdall.On my phone down home power boots into bootloader. Make sure the drivers are ...
I also faced the same problem in my phone, when I flashed a wrong Rom. But I had USB Jig which reset my phone to Download mode automatically. Then I was able to flash with ODIN. Try using USB Jig (you can buy it on eBay) to force your phone into Download mode.
You can use apps like Quick Boot or Rebooter or some root apps have this feature to go to recovery mode.. Use them
