You should follow the instructions in the described order. If you see the green Android as soon as you plug the USB, you did not. Because at that moment, the phone should be switched off.

Please retry and really follow it step by step.

Hi Chris,

I really followed step by step. As soon as the phone is connected to USB from a PC, the phone shows the green Android. The Android man flashes, between on and off.

Funny thing, I followed the steps too and the green Android guy showed up as soon as the USB was plugged in (yes, the phone was off, yes, the battery was not even in the phone).

What worked for me was to switch the phone off, take the battery out, hold both [Vol-] and [Home/Menu] buttons as described, and then, while still holding them down, plug the USB cable. Connecting the phone was like pressing the power button in my case I guess (?). The instructions appeared on the Linux terminal and the phone was rooted (battery still out at this point). It didn't reboot though and I had to switch it off (I think by unplugging the USB) and on again but now with the battery inside (obviously). Then the phone started normally and I had the root app installed.

Hope that helps and thanks to all who helped me de-Orange my Blade and Skate.

Just revert back to your stock boot. Root will remain installed.

6. into the folder of the package

7. execute the 0_Install_CWM_recovery.bat (your phone will reboot two time, on the second booting , put out your battery for power off phone)

8. Now, you should be install the CWM-base recovery image , and the into to recovery mode (Hold the VOL down + Power Button)
