Thumbs up CWM Recovery For PCD Chaser

Okay PCD Chaser uses, here it is. how to root your phone, and install Clockwork Mod Recovery.

To Root

1. Download Ministro II From Here: Download Now

2. Download Poot_debug.apk From Here: Download Now

Run poot and let it download what it needs.
reboot
Run poot again
Select Download Superuser

it will run and install

Congrats you just rooted your chaser

RECOVERY INSTALL

I and Downthemachine Spent a good week or so building this Recovery for the chaser.
I have tested, working 100%


TO FLASH

UPDATED FLASH METHOD
Reboot phone into fastboot mode.. VOl+ power..

Connect phone via USB, install the fastboot command. "windows or linux"

then in terminal fastboot flash recovery recovery.img



Download Flash Image:
http://www.shabbypenguin.com/OUDstuff/Tools/flash_image

you have to use flash_image and adb to flash the custom recovery

[HIGH]adb push flash_image /data/local/tmp/flash_image
adb push recovery.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/flash_image
adb shell
su
/data/local/tmp/flash_image recovery /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
[/HIGH]

DOWNLOAD HERE: CWM5-RECOVERY INSTALLER FOR CHASER

WARNING
MAKE A BACKUP!!
Be careful wiping /data, your touchscreen files are somewhere in /data. until we figure out the rom structure. i dont advise it


If you enjoy my work, Want to buy me a coffee, or just want to help out, donations are greatly appreciated, All donations, unless specified otherwise by sender will be used for the purpose of ongoing android development

Dm47021: How did you get the ADB to recognize the phone? Mine won't recognize it at all, even with the drivers.


EDIT: IF you cannot use ADB... You MUST be rooted.

Requires: A working terminal emulator
A root file explorer (ES File Explorer and Root Explorer both work)
flash_image and recovery.img found in OP

1) Download the flash_image and recovery.img to your device, folder is irrelevant. Make it your sdcard root to make it easy (/sdcard or /sdcard/Download both work)
2) Use your explorer to move flash_image to /system/bin
3) Use explorer to change permissions to RWX/R-X/R-X (or do a chmod 755 from the terminal)
4) use the command "flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img"
5) Done. Use /sdcard/Download/recovery.img if you used that location.

DONE

I volunteer! Mine is out of service, so I won't be able to test 3G or cell functionality, but I can certainly test everything else.

Downloading now. I'll be able to report on it potentially tonight, but probably tomorrow night (I'll be helping my fiancee set up her new Asus TF300 so will have all my tools ready to go anyway)

EDIT: In case someone else gets a Chaser, could you add the alternate terminal method to the OP? A google search reveals that a LOT of people have issues with the ADB and the Chaser.

Question before I install it: Any particular features you want tested? I can use this as a daily driver as an 'app player' or 'mp3 player' and test those features.

Another update: I resaved your config file in-phone (ES File Explorer's note editor), then rebuilt the *.zip file. Still won't install. No error now, simply "Installation aborted"

Go into the zip and see if there is a folder, then inside that folder is a meta-inf, system, and boot.img.
Those three folders need to be at the root of the zip file.

The folder structure is correct, I've verified that. I've never had luck with the updater scripts, though. I couldn't even make my own update.zip that simply put a *.txt in /system/.

Change permissions of what exactly? I'm having trouble. Then I check system /bin and its rwx rx rx already. I try the command in the emulator and get a permission denied error

The file you used your explorer to copy and paste. If you use a terminal emulator, you have to 'su' first.

Do you already have root access? IF so, get either ES File Explorer (and enable "Root Explorer" in the settings and mount /system), or Root Explorer. Then, follow the above steps

"flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img"

Check your spaces. This was listed verbatim in my earliest post, step by step.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everybody who put in the time and effort to make it possible to root and install a custom recovery on the Chaser, yes Dm47021 and Downthemachine thank you for the Custom Recovery efforts. I got it installed with only minor problems that were my fault, and it has been working great ever since, Thank you again!!

If you are having out of memory problems when installing programs give the Link2SD app a try, (I'm not affiliated with it in anyway, just a happy user) been using it since I got the chaser rooted months ago and it has worked great for keeping the phone memory problem under control.

EDIT: IF you cannot use ADB... You MUST be rooted.

Requires: A working terminal emulator
A root file explorer (ES File Explorer and Root Explorer both work)
flash_image and recovery.img found in OP

1) Download the flash_image and recovery.img to your device, folder is irrelevant. Make it your sdcard root to make it easy (/sdcard or /sdcard/Download both work)
2) Use your explorer to move flash_image to /system/bin
3) Use explorer to change permissions to RWX/R-X/R-X (or do a chmod 755 from the terminal)
4) use the command "flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img"
5) Done. Use /sdcard/Download/recovery.img if you used that location.

DONE
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

fastboot is annother tool like adb built into the phone, except it works via usb.
to get to fastboot, you vol + and power, like recovery.

you need the fastboot program install on your windows/linux system.

it also serves as a fool proof unbrick tool

1. Did you boot into fastboot .. vol+ pwr
2. Do you have the drivers installed ?
3. Windows or linux?

1. Download Ministro II From Here: Download Now

Run poot and let it download what it needs.
reboot
Run poot again
Select Download Superuser

it will run and install

Congrats you just rooted your chaser
Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I'm going to be attempting the above root process tonight on my step-daughter's phone and am hoping for a little clarification. I'm fairly adept at most things Android so perhaps I'm over thinking it, but these directions seem a little unclear.

First, when you say download and run poot_debug.apk, you just mean install the apk on the phone, right?

And second, does poot somehow use ministro to obtain root because you never mention doing anything with that apk. Do I just put it in the same folder where poot is located?

Sorry if these are dumb questions, but I'd like to be sure of the process before I get started later tonight.

Thanks!
