My little guide to get cwm 6 on our phone without a computer

1. Download bladyle's cwm zip here: http://minus.com/llBzrGFd15YuQ

2. Extract "recovery_6001.img" then rename the extracted .img "recovery.img"

3. Download recovery manager: http://www.modaco.com/index.php?/topic/329772-[APP]-Recovery-Manager-v0.36-[bETA] (copy the whole link, not just the blue link) then install the apk on your phone

4. Open the app then click on the recovery tab

5. Click on "install recovery" and select the recovery.img that you extracted

6. Click on reboot recovery then enjoy :D

hm

6001 is not flashable at my device... maybe its to old, containing a different chip?

MFG Date Dec, 2010

what error you see?

i see in forum that there is GEN1, GEN2 or GEN3 phones...for now i don't know what is the difference from this or how to view witch version is your device but maybe they using different size partitions and that is why you can't flash it ..

try different method to be sure too

sending 'recovery' (5068 KB)... OKAY

writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: flash write failure)

the other recoverys are smaller

how do I check the partitions of the flash memory? (I hate those situations, nothing documented :( )

Edit: thx Mtman1 but this will not work, if the sizes don't fit ^_^ beside that fastboot is really generic

are you sure your pressing vol up, focus and power buttons? If so, try a few more times. If that doesn't work, just install it the proper way

Two questions

1) what's the blobs folder in the clockworkmod folder on the sd card?

2) apparently it's possible to delete cwm backups with 6.x.x.x, is it possible and how do you do it?

PS both my guide and the proper method worked for me

he big problem is it don't see the ext4 partition.

Maybe it's about incompleteness of my source.. it doesn't have ext4 line in recovery.fstab

add that

/sd-ext ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /dev/block/mmcblk0

and generate again

I think the "blobs" folder is ".android_secure"

@Lens_flare


W:Unable to get recovery.fstab info for /datadata during fstab generation!

W:Unable to get recovery.fstab info for /emmc during fstab generation!

W:Unable to get recovery.fstab info for /sd-ext during fstab generation!

i will add the line for sd-ext but isn't that way support only ext4 and no ext3? and what about first and second warning ?

Koush assumes ALL devices in his damned imaginaerum DO have those partitions.

ext4 as I know compatible with older ones. e2fsck is the evidence.

Two things,

1) thank you sooo much bladyle for this

2) with my guide, you have to rename the recovery as recovery.img or you will end up in fastboot mode

I thought fastboot might flash anything and it not discriminate you passed "recovery.img" or "brickmysystemplease"(I point: without any extension).
