Sorry if this thread may look like others but I have wasted over four hours and still haven't figured out how to install CM 10.2. I have googled and searched here and there but I keep on coming to dead ends.

 

I have rooted my device ages ago and I have TWRP installed albeit its 2.5 Version.I have the following downloaded ;-

 

  1. TWRP 2.6 [hopefully the latest verison] from http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/166
  2. CM 10.2 from http://www.modaco.co...ilds-available/

I believe it is all I need to install CM 10.2. How do I update TWRP 2.6? I have 2.5 installed. I don't get how to do the fastbootloader method. I have superSU and goo.manager installed.

 

Goo.manager doesn't even have openrecovery script option in the /dev/ section of the mobile but it does on the PC! I'm so confused.

 

I think I know how to install CM 10.2 [go to install part in TWRP and search for zip file] but I don't want to do it before updating it TWRP.

OK. I think I figured out how to install 2.6. The google doc page was really confusing how to install. Going to backup after I manage to get 2.6 working because if I brick it,i can hopefully restore it.

 

For others at https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing click on File -> Download  to get the zip file.

Developer of cm10.2 recommends latest CWM recovery, link is available in the cm10.2 thread. Download the flashable zip of the recovery, put it into your SD card reboot into your current recovery now flash the new CWM recovery go back to reboot and tap reboot into recovery. Here you go now you have a compatible recovery to flash cm10.2. Now format/wipe all the partitions (factory format, wipe cache partition, format system, format cust, wipe dalvik cache), all done now you can now flash any ROM including cm10.2. Make backup before doing anything, after a clean flash of cm10.2 you can restore your data/settings from your previously made backups by using nandroid manager from playstore.

What do you mean whiping? I have the latest TWRP installed. Now hopefully CM 10.2 might get installed using it. Why would I need to whip?

Before flashing you need to wipe( erase system & all data) in TWRP recovery go to wipe--> advance wipe--> check all except SD card and swipe the slide to wipe all.

Note: make backup before doing anything.

Thanks. Will it format my sd card? Because I have made backup on it and made backup of all my apps using TitaniumBackup

 

Hey guys the google play store link is dead on the CM 10.2 page. Where can I get it now?

Don't check micro SD. Also don't check internal storage if you don't wanna erase data from internal storage.

Thanks I managed to install it. Didn't like CM 10.2 because the battery bar looked ugly and it didn't feel that much high res, clear resolution look. It felt everything to be jagged and low res. 

 

TWRP restore worked wonderfully.
