done all this including the copying into system/bin and chmod
all I am getting now is permission denied when trying flash_erase /dev/mtd5 0x00100000 48 from adb shell

flash_erase /dev/mtd5 0x00100000 48
nandwrite -s 0x00100000 -p /dev/mtd5 ramdisk.maint.gz.crc
ramdisk.maint.gz.crc can be pulled from your update. You will need to get flash_erase and nandwrite on your device as they are only in the recovery. If you can't pull the binaries out of the new ramdisk let me know and I will pull them for you.
