Two weeks ago I unlocked my T-Mobile Vivacity and used CWM to install CyanogenMod9, which I find very good. However, at the time I also applied the patch for Dark Tremor's a2sd, and I would now like to go for an alternative storage solution and was thinking of using int2ext+. To do this, I need to remove the a2sd first... Simple, I thought, CWM to do a nandroid backup, format the SD card with the required partitions and then load CM9 without the patch, reboot and then add the int2ext+ afterwards. If it all goes wrong, I'd have the nandroid backup to fall back to.
However, I find I can't get into CWM again. I only used it the once to load CM9 and never looked for it again. If I switch on with the vol- key held, it goes into FTM. OK, I used WindowsXP to do the unlocking using a combination of brownian's guide and other posts on here and on getandroidfree.com. I've tried to go through that sequence again (missing out the QPST and Unlock) and the phone reboots to the android green man but the terminal just says "waiting for your device to respond" and the process goes no further. I have then tried putting the image from here (T-Mobile Vivacity v188.8.131.52
) on the root of the SD, and used the phone's update, but that doesn't do anything either. I press the button in: settings, about phone, system updates, and just nothing happens.
I have Titanium Backup, but that doesn't seem to have the power to create a nandroid backup. I've tried the nandroid backup app from the market, but that doesn't work for me either.
I am wondering if me using GParted to adjust the SD card's partitions has somehow confused the update system, or something. I have WindowsXP and three different Ubuntu based systems to attempt this with, but can find no instructions on a Linux way to install ClockworkMod again.
Can anyone think of a way, or point me to the right thread describing this? I really don't want to go any further without a nandroid backup of my working system, and will need CWM to flash the bare CM9.
