Please find attached *MY* build of the latest version of Koush's ClockworkMod Recovery for the ZTE-Blade. It is not officially supported by Koush, please do not bother him with support questions for this build.

I have tested it as much as I can, but I'm always open to any more constructive feedback. Please see one post down for a change log for THIS build. Koush seems not to publish a change log (unless you know of one).

To install:
  • Recovery Manager
  • fastboot method
    • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
    • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'volume up' key. The device will stay at the 'green android' screen.
    • Plug the device into the PC.
    • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img'
    • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'
  • update.zip methodIf you have a previous version or another recovery install, install the update.zip and restart your device.
How to Enter recovery mode:
  • restart your device holding down the 'volume down' key
  • Use the Recovery Manager application to Reboot into Recovery
  • if you have ADB configured type 'adb reboot recovery' from the command line.
Downloads:The Latest version of Clockworkmod Recovery can found HERE
Previous versions:
  • Older versions of Clockwork recovery can be found here.
Official release
  • The offical version of ClockworkMod Recovery if available for this device can be found here
Warning:
  • Support for the old style update files that use the Amend scripting (update-script) method is no longer supported With ClockworkMod Recovery from v3 onwards, if you require support for the Amend scripting method, use v2.5.1.8.
Source
  • The Device Config to build ClockworkMod Recovery as part of CyanogenMod can be found on my GitHub.
Kernel Information
  • Information about the Kernel used in this ROM can be found on this thread.

Yeah, exactly the same as any recovery image...
  • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
  • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'volume up' key. The device will stay at the 'green android' screen.
  • Plug the device into the PC.
  • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.8-blade.img'
  • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'
To enter recovery mode, restart your device holding down the 'volume down' key, or type 'adb reboot recovery' from the command line.

Hi Seb thanks for the updated Clockwork great work. Just to let you know i have tried to do 3 nandroid backups and each time i have had 3 errors. Firstly no /sdcard/.android_secure found. Skipping backup of applications on external storage. No sd-ext found. Skipping backup of sd-ext. Generating md5 sum... Error while generating md5 sum! The second error is ok as i do not have an ext- partition, but can you please shed any light on the other errors. I am running pauls Eclair R4 and have had no issues with any earlier vers of clockwork. Thanks, Carl.

Seb, there were (if I understood correctly) some issues with some roms/patches requiring either 'old' or 'new' Clockwork.

Am I correct in thinking that this should handle both methods of 'scripting' the flash process?
If so, would it make sense to note that at the top of the thread?




Splendid that it should be the right way up, but ... actually, :) ;) I did rather like the quirk that, to play around with the phone's firmware, one had to use it upside down!
It was part of the phone's character!

The first two are just because you don't have a2sd, that .android_secure is how it tells there is something on the sd-ext partition (I belive)

The other one is a bit more interesting tho, did you use the file that's attached to the first page of this thread, or one from the other thread?

I've just test the backup/recovery and it works fine for me...

I'm not sure, there is no change log for clockworkmod recovery that I could find...

However I build a 'old style' update.zip, and applied it to my phone, and it seems to work.. so I'd say that bug has been fixed...

Thanks for this great update, esp for the screen right way up.

Can you include ext3 support in the kernel. Can't backup a2sd on ext3. See http://android.modac...p...t&p=1501261 for ext3 support to 2.5.1.3. Thanks.
