USB is ****, can I install CWM from SDcard ?

16 posts in this topic

As the title says :(

I've tried installing the USB drivers on 4 PC's with no luck so it may be a dead USB port, is there anyway of installing CWM from SD card so I can install custom ROMs ?

*I've rooted/CWMd many phones / tablets so hopefully it's not finger trouble :D

I think it's possible only if you already have some version of CWM installed on the phone, then you can flash new version from CWM itself, otherwise... Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Yep, they're basically the only options.

Looks like I'm out of luck, USB seems broken so no terminal and I've only got the standard recovery :(

If the usb is in fact broken, how do you charge the phone?

Terminal app on phone? You could get one in the play store.

It charges ok, It's just got a problem with USB comms.

It wont work with any of my PCs, never had any problems with USB on my Blade, Vivavcity, HD2, SG2, SG3, Nexus 7 etc etc etc, just can't get the G300 to work

I'll have to look into converting Custom ROMs into packages to allow flashing using the stock recovery :(

What versions of Windows on each of the 4 PCs tried so far?

Any chance temporarily disabling security software (e.g. anti virus/malware) might help?

Tried it with Vista64, W7 64 & 32 and on a PC with no virus checker at all, still ****

Flash a recovery image from the Terminal Emulator app on your phone

*snip*

Don't you need root for that ? ..... I haven't been able to root, USB is ****

Thanks for the ideas :)

I thought you were already rooted and bootloader unlocked before usb failed.

You should be able to:-

Root

Daz's root script but using terminal emulator:-

http://g300.thebronasium.com/files/b926-root-bl.zip

extract the zip

copy the contents of the root folder to your sd card

in terminal emulator

su

chmod 777 /sdcard/mempodroid

chmod 777 /sdcard/args.sh

/sdcard/mempodroid 0xd524 0xab8f sh /sdcard/args.sh

Unlock Bootloader

Download unlockbootloader.exe http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1850464

Run it

It will fail but will leave bootloader.img and oemsbl.img in the windows directory c:\users\YOURUSER\appdata\local\temp

copy them to the sd card

from Terminal Emulator

su

dd if=/sdcard/bootloader.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p9

dd if=/sdcard/oemsbl.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p14

Good luck. I'm not sure if the z4root apk will work but it's worth a try and I'm sure there will be another way if it doesn't.

Thanks for the help but it doesn't recognize SU in Terminal, is this because I've not got Root / busybox ?
