I was able to get the latest ClockworkMOD recovery by flashing a .zip [2.5.0.1(find it HERE)] in the old recovery(1.8.1.4).

EDIT: it doesn't seem to stick :) so i have to flash it every time i want to use it

that 0one you use is boot loader for fast booting

I tried this but still not working, im still stuck at T-mobile logo.
Is there any way to remove the Clockwork Recovery mode and flash with AmonRa?

EDIT: I tried to flash again with Clockwork, AmonRA also and superboot, and it says "waiting for device".

Devs dont bash me too much but where all here to help well I can confirm this works after 3 reboots tries.

Ok so I got RA 1.6.2-- Recovery on my u8150 pulse mini.. Not by fast boot .. having trouble using fast boot for windows vista (also tried limited with linux said eff it) I decided to go back to roots and be experimental using the terminal.

(now you are saying wtf he just skipped fast boot method and totally went in blind and risked bricking his phone) !!!!!

Yes i did and sometimes I take less roads taken .. infact I love doing this because how can't you have success without trying first hand.. and unlike (evil apple) you can recover easier. I had an idea to just copy the method i had used to install a custom recovery on a lg optimus and by golly it worked.

SOOO :D lets go step by step how I managed to just by luck and stroke of wonder I got it on my device using terminal.

Step one .. well forget step 1 .. forget using fastboot.. I tried to use it on windows and linux.. got impatient blah.

Step 2.. get terminal emulator from the market. I use the jack palvich terminal emulator..

step 3.. open terminal emulator and begin to give it a su ... to get the # (you know the deal)

(follow this task step by step.. but before all that we need a flash img.)

http://www.mediafire...e33dnnjaalh8h5e (DOWNLOAD THIS)

NOW HERE IS THE INTERESTING PART...THIS FLASH IMAGE IS FROM RA' THUNDER.. ROM FROM THE LG OPTIMUS MY OLD PHONE.. BUT SAME FROM DEV. IT WORKS TRUST ME YOU WILL SEE.. WHEN I AM DONE!!!

step 4 extract that and put it into the root of the sd card.

step 5 grab the recovery-RA-pulsemini-v1.6.2 extract that and put the image file also into the sd card.

(RENAME RECOVERY-RA-PULSEMINI-.V1.6.2.IMG TO RECOVERY.IMG NOW AND SAVE THAT ITS EASIER WHEN YOU ARE INPUTING IT ON TERMINAL SIDE.

step 6. follow these steps in the order as follows..

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

(like the optimus for some reason after this step it gives you an error dont freak just do it and hit the return key and it will advance)

# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

(this for some reason gives and o mtd out of memory error just let It scroll then It will still work surprisingly heh hit the return key and it will advance)

# reboot recovery

It should reboot..

(So now that you have rebooted take the battery out and do power, vol.up and green button)

you should see the htc BUILD: RA-Pulse MINI-1.6.2

Lke this .. .

you now have a custom recovery happy modding. :P

You have to go back to 1.8.1.4-pulsemini-clockworkrecovery
in bootloader mode, you enter by pressing vol -, red button and power button
and you have to disable USB debugging!this is causing problems with Windows

Cool, looks like USB debug mode was preventing it from being fixed. Back to 1.8.1.4 again :huh:

Do you have one of the newer T-Mobile Pulse Mini Pink phones from the UK?

So far I have rooted my phone using z4root and have installed the latest free version of ROM Manager from the Android Market. Version 4.0.0.6

https://market.andro...k...nager&hl=en

My battery is only half charged so I'm charging it now before attempting a ROM update

I'm not sure what my next step should be - ... ROM Manager tells me I need to install Clock Work Recovery and gives me the option to download Huawei pulse mini is this what you did, or did you do something else?

Just to be clear all I've done so far is root my phone and install ROM Manager - not added Clockwork MOD Yet .. should I use the version ROM Manager gives me or should I use the older version given on this thread Clockwork Recovery 1.8.1.4 ?

As this thread is almost 1 year old I wasn't sure what is the latest and best advice.

hi there i have the latest version off the pulse mini this is what i did rooted my phone with z4root download the latest version. rom manager.
use clockwork recovery for the huawei.ascend. reboot the phone.
download the recovery image from above post.
unzip the image and rename it to recovery-clockwork-3.0.0.5-ascend.img
save it.
once renamed copy the img file to the sdcard in this directory clockworkmod.download.mirrorbrain.cyanogenmod.com/cm/recoveries replace the img there with the one u just renamed
once done leave sdcard goback to rom manager flash again with huawei ascend reboot the phone remove battery then reboot holding green call,volume up tap power u should now see the recovery image .copy the custom rom to sdcard and flash.
