Does flashing CWM remove your ROM?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question!

Have played around with using a few roms on my T-Mobile Vivacity (FnC, CM9, de-branded), but used the ZTE update tool to revert to stock as I wanted to start from scratch.

My aim is to use the stock rom and darktremor's a2sd to utilise SD card space and remove some stock apps.

However, after going back to stock with the ZTE update tool (which worked fine) I used amphoras' alternative method to flash CWM (), but now the phone won't boot past the green android logo. I can get into CWM though.

So my question is, has flashing CWM removed the stock rom, or has something else gone wrong? I'm attempting to use the ZTE update tool again as I write, to revert back to stock so I can boot the phone again (fingers crossed) but I need to know if I have to install a new rom after flashing CWM.

Thanks,

Jamie

Something else went wrong.

Flashing CWM doesn't affect the system partition, only the recovery partition.

Weird.

That what you used from link you posted is TPT , so that changes partition size and format partitions and yes that deleted your rom.

If you want just to install cwm use this link

Oh!

That explains it (didn't noticed your flashing method...)
