Default [Recovery][Touch] CWM v6.0.3.0

Hello Peoples! I bring y'all CWM Touch Recovery! I can't take credit because all I did was build it using ClockworkMod builder and Interloper's recovery.fstab & graphics.c files so credit goes to him & Koush.

What works:
- Same as Interloper's Recovery

Hey, everyone. I just took the plunge and rooted my phone. Now I suppose is the time for me to make a backup of the state my phone is in.

I downloaded cwm-touch-iconvmu-signed.zip to my PC and unzipped it. Do I simply copy the entire folder to my phone's card? And then what?

Thanks.

At shyfluttershy, you aren't supposed to unzip.
Put the entire unzipped file on your external on flash through recovery.

I'm not sure I understand how to flash it through recovery. Isn't this the recovery I'm trying to install?

Also, does this do the same thing as Nandroid Backup and Titanium Backup? I guess it's a matter of "you can't have too many backups"?

Thanks.

You can flash a new recovery through recovery.
Sounds strange but it works.
This also makes nandroid backups.

To flash anything in recovery u need to leave it zipped.
Know the location of the file first and the name of it.
Then reboot into recovery.
If your already backed up , wipe data/ factory reset (optional but recommended)
Then install zip from sdcard
Choose zip from sdcard or external sdcard (depends on where the zip is)
Locate it and install
It will do the rest.

I'm new to smart phones, so I have nothing to compare this to.

I thought this is for making a backup of my phone's state. I'm not looking to alter anything right now.

It is but, you have you have to flash this then you can make a back up.
Without it, you can't make a full partition backup.

Seriously, help! I cannot figure out how to boot into recovery mode. Power + Vol Up just raises the volume and gives me the "do you want to power down or reboot?" menu. Similar results with Power + Vol Down. I've tried Power + Vol + Home and all THAT does is take a screen shot!

there are apps that will boot u into recovery mode like rom toolbox or rom manager. but u need to hold the volume key and power button when ur phone is off. power down first then hold the volume up and power button until it starts booting. volume down and power i think is the download mode if that shows up just exit it since u aren't using odin or equivelant.

Well, I tried that, and it failed. I know the CWM file is on my external SD card. I can see it just fine when my phone is on normally and I go in through My Files. I don't know what the problem is here.

[HIGH]
Choose a package to install:
/sdcard

---------------
../
---------------

E:failed to mount /sdcard (Invalid argument)
[/HIGH]

So not only is it not seeing the external SD card, it's not seeing anything.

I tried "apply update from cache" and got a similar lack of anything.

[HIGH]
Choose a package to install:
/cache

---------------
../
fota/
lost+found/
recovery/
---------------
[/HIGH]

All of those directories are seemingly empty as well.

/sdcard is you internal storage
You'll have to go down a few option in the "install zip from SD card menu"
You will see install from SD but if you go down a few options you will see "install from external SD"
Hope that clarifies something.

Also the apply update from cache is only necessary if you have downloaded an ota that you can seem to regularly install.

This is what I get when I boot into recovery:

[HIGH]
Android system recovery <3e>

Volume up/down to move highlight;
power button to select.

---------------------------------------------
reboot system now
apply update from external storage
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
apply update from cache
---------------------------------------------

# MANUAL MODE #
-- Appling Multi-CSC...
Applied the CSC-code : VMU
Successfully applied multi-CSC.
[/HIGH]

Do you think I could try doing this via ClockworkMod Rom Manager? According to the screen shot on its Google Play page, "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" is a thing it can do.

Thanks.

Do not use Rom Manager. You need to use Odin to install the CWM recovery. For Odin you need to be in download mode. Assuming you are rooted you can install a terminal app from play store. Then do the following.
1. Open terminal app
2. Type 'su' - no quotes
3. Type 'reboot download'

Phone will reboot into download mode. You can then use Odin to install CWM recovery.

The above will also work to access recovery by typing recovery instead of download.

I am in fact rooted as of yesterday. (Note to self: Go make sure you thanked mystichunter.)

I'm installing Heimdall now. (I divide my time roughly 50/50 between Windows and Ubuntu, and my weekends are all Ubuntu.) Hopefully this will make my computer properly recognize my phone when I plug it in. (On Windows, I plug in my phone and I can see the files it lets me see easily. On Ubuntu, I plug in my phone and it says that I've plugged in a camera, does it want me to open my music player, and it won't properly access the files.)

With regard to using Odin/Heimdall, does it matter at what point I plug my phone into my computer? That is, should it be plugged in before I begin, or ought I wait until a certain point to plug it in, etc?

Does it matter which terminal app I get?

Why shouldn't I use Rom Manager?

Thank you.

The instructions are to flash it via Odin. You can't really flash a recovery via a recovery.

If it helps, this is what I did:

Follow these instructions and install Reverb Clockworkmod Recovery Test 8.

[OUDHS] Soft Brick and CWM recovery support

This will install an older version of clockworkmod.

Once installed, you can boot into recovery and install v6.0.3.0.

I did flash cwm 8, it worked.
I then flashed a custom cwm and some custom ROMS, I found one that's awesome. I got it from Android area 51, along with some nicely modded apps.

I like the work they do, and how fast they are to help with problems, so I donated and got VIP privileges and access to exclusive releases.

You can use the cwm recovery in this thread, using the method outlined here -

http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/721940-welcome-jelly-bean-rooting.html#post5837608

If you are still using ICS, and want to upgrade to Jellybean, you may want to allow the JB update to happen, and then re-root using the same instructions in the thread I linked to.

Whooops, I thought this was the cwm 6.0.3.6 thread. That one will probably work better. You can get 6.0.3.6 here

Flash with Odin, same way as in the root guide I linked to, or check out the thread here-

[RECOVERY] CWMT-6.0.3.6 for JB MD6/MI2

If you want to not use Touchwiz, you can also just use a different home launcher app such as Apex Launcher, and you can freeze Touchwiz with Titanium Backup (don't freeze it until you've installed another launcher though)

Good luck!

Are you holding down volume up + power buttons to boot into recovery?

anyways i would rather have cwm recovery, but thats the problem everything i try wont work, it wont download the recovery i feel like i have tried everything. i put my phone into download mode, i open up odin, then i look for the .tar file, then i uncheck reboot and click start then odin says it passes, after that i unplug my phone remove the battery and press volume up then power button and it just gives me the badge of honor and then it just ignores my commands and boots to the OS. and the reason i dont like tuchwiz its because it takes up too much space and too much ram of the little i have causing my phone to lag when i haven't downloaded much things or done much with it. i rather just have a fresh plain jelly bean bloatware free and tuchwiz free.

Also are you pulling the battery as soon as Odin says "pass", or are you waiting for the little bar on your phone screen to finish filling up first?
Sorry if these questions seem silly, I'm just trying to get an idea of exactly what you tried.
Are you even able to bring up the stock recovery?

but what confuses me is that when i go to download mode it says
ODIN MODE
product name: SPH-M950
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: YES (12 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: CUSTOM

so what im thinking is that it recognized i downloaded a custom kernal, yet it doesnt go to custom recovery when i press volume up and power.

Your phone will try to reinstall the stock recovery if you can't get it to boot to the custom recovery the first time, which is why the kernel is staying but cwm isn't.
The first time I installed cwm with Odin, I actually had to do it a couple times since holding vol up + power is kind of sketchy sometimes.
