Default [GUIDE][CWM] ZTE Score M X500

Here is a guide on how to install Clockworkmod Recovery v6 on the ZTE Score X500. There are both traditional and Touch CWM linked below, Be warned tho the Touch was built on builder.clockworkmod.com and no options to specify a font so its kinda big n funky looking.

Instructions:


  • From command prompt or terminal:

  • Copy flash_image and zte-x500-recovery.img to the sdcard on the device:
Code:
adb push zte-x500-recovery.img /sdcard/
Code:
adb push flash_image /sdcard/
  • To use flash_image to flash a recovery image called zte-x500-recovery.img in the root of your sdcard
Code:
adb shell
Code:
su
  • Temporarily allow app to run from the sdcard (use mount to find the correct device for your sdcard, ie: the /dev/block/BLAH part)
Code:
mount  -o remount,exec /dev/block//vold/179:1 /sdcard
Code:
cd  /sdcard
Code:
./flash_image recovery  /sdcard/zte-x500-recovery.img


Downloads
:

Official CWM & Touch available via ROM Manager!!!

How to use CWM:
  • Volume buttons navigate up n down.
  • Power button is back.
  • Camera button is select.

You should just download and use rom manager from play store to flash the recovery.

Oh and the errors you're experiencing when typin in the code are user errors Lol

For future reference you should post the actual error you're experiencing you most likely will get more help then when makin a general statement telling a well known and respected dev his code is wrong Lol

I had the same issues as the above fellas, where permission denied on comand:

" ./flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/??x-500-recovcery.img"
>> Permission denied

something like that.

what i did was found where teh system partition was mounted

"mount"

read through till i say the '/system'

it was on mtdblock2 so mounted hte system as R/W

"mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock /system"

then create a temp folder i did

"mkdir /system/data/temp"

then moved both the image and teh flash_image program into that folder.
but teh command "mv flash_image /system/data/temp/flash_image" returned an error about cross device something

so i used es file explore to move the contents

then back to adb shell

"cd /system/data/temp"
//set permissions
"chmod 0775 flash_image"
//NOTE: YOU MAY BE ABLE TO SIMPLY SET PERMISSIONS WITH OUT MOVING THESE FILES??? DIDNT TRY IT MABYE YOU SHOULD

then finally execute the program
" ./flash_image recovery /sdcard/zte-x500-recovery.img"

ok hope this helps someone
