./fastboot flash system mmcblk0p1.img
, it takes only 4 seconds to download and 8 seconds to flash, which is not possible to the 350MB image. As a result, the main partition is broken and not bootable.
./fastboot erase system
takes half a minute, which is normal.
Could anyone tell me the right procedure to recover the main partition(mmcblk0p1) in fastboot?
I successfully reflashed my K4NT and it worked, using the same command that you showed above. I did not erase it first. Flash does not need erasing like EEROMs do. USB is very fast (up to about 40MB/second, depending on your computer speed), but it still took quite awhile to flash mmcblk0p1. If yours quit in 4 seconds something is wrong. Was that on a Touch?
