You're not alone... I've never understood why anyone would pay for the pro version of RM. Other than rom updating and some 'premium' roms, I don't see the benefit... and those features are worthless on a phone like the Spectrum, because all our roms are in the forums. On phones like the DX, GNEX and other highly-dev'd devices, it *might* make some sense... but even when I had a D2 and OG Droid, I could just as easily update manually... for free.

i can understand why some people would buy it, just for ease of it being a one click option. But your right doesnt make any sense for a device like ours where its all on the forums and easy as pie to do manually.

one reason to buy may be to support the dev...

I know I've bought more than one app just for that reason. The free version gave me everything I needed in those instances and didn't have ads but I felt it my duty to throw a few dollars the devs way just to show my support for their work. Most, if not all of us blow 5-10 dollars on crap we don't need all the time, and a alot of those times we aren't even satisfied with what we got for it.

At least with these great apps provided to us by many many hours of hard work on account of the developers of apps, and roms, and themes we have the option to pay for it after we try it :]

Just did my first backup to play with CM9 and I'm a bit nervous:

/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/1970-01-02.02.19.02 # ls -l
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10485760 Jan 2 02:19 boot.img
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 514 Jan 2 02:27 cache.ext4.dup
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 246729 Jan 2 02:27 data.ext4.dup
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 296 Jan 2 02:27 nandroid.md5
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16777216 Jan 2 02:19 recovery.img
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 219368 Jan 2 02:25 system.ext4.dup

I know dedupe is cool, but come on... 219k cannot possibly hold all of /system. What gives? Do the dedupe files in /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs hold most of the data? "du" shows that there's about 1gb of space used under blobs.

I'm trying to root my device with this. I'm not new to flashing or anything and I use Ubuntu. But every time I try to root and install the recovery, I get this error:
Clockwork Mod Recovery[*] Press enter to install CWM to your phone...
Pushing CWM to Phone
error: insufficient permissions for device
error: insufficient permissions for device
error: insufficient permissions for device
Rebooting device

I've tried switching the script around to where it roots first but nothing is working. Any ideas?

Good thing there's adb and I took a tarball of /system and /data for safe keeping. Gonna restore from those now.

Since this new dedupe thing obviously cannot be trusted (well, I can't trust it), is there a way to rebuild CWMT without dedupe and just use the good old tarball method?

BTW, after the failed restore, "df" says this:

BTW2, the timestamp on the backup is 1/1/1970 -- the clock isn't reading correctly or something.

The timestamp issue is a known one that can't be resolved (afaik).

Any help? I even tried combining two different scripts and am still coming up with nothing. For some reason, I can't get my terminal to recognize adb commands though either... Maybe I should update my sdk. I'll try that and post back with results. In the meantime, y'all have any other ideas what could cause this?

Try manually using ADB. If you can get in that way, then it's a script issue. Last time I saw this happen thou, it was because the user didn't have ADB set up correctly on their linux box. Once they fixed that, the install script worked fine.

+1

Also, I never mess with the USB permissions. Instead, I start adb as root:

sudo adb start-server

Then anyone can use adb.

That's just me though.

Not sure I understand that. Are you suggesting that I use dd to do my own backups instead of using nandroid?

I just want a working, reliable backup and restore...

Grab the 6.0.1.1 version of our recovery from here:
ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries

Install using DD commands.
When in recovery go to "backup and restore" -> "choose backup format" -> and pick "tar" .

Consider everything good to go unless you swap out your SD card as it keeps your choice stored in the clockworkmod directory.

Default just got around to installing this...

so I finally pushed this CWM to my Spectrum... then started a backup... then noticed the link to DL 6.0.11 to get the option of .tar for backups.
It took about 5-10 minutes before it told me it was backing up data, now it has been sitting on that for 45 minutes.

at one point a REALLY long file name ending in .so was there on the screen, but it disappeared in about 25 seconds and was overwritten with the "Backing up Data..." line. about 20 minutes maybe earlier) in the 45 minute timeframe that it has been "backing up data..." a new line showed up with a single period.

is my phone actually doing something? or should I just yank the battery and push 6.0.11 to it and try again?

none of the physical buttons have any affect, and the key backlights are and have been off. I'll give it another 20 minutes, if no progress, I'm a gonna yank the sucka!


-----------------
so, it is almost an hour and 40 minutes later (I received 9 pages for work right after I put in that last post) there has been no change on my spectrum.


---------------------
10 hours later...
I pushed 6.0.11 to my spectrum and set it to a tar backup and it is running fine now, already finished backing up the system partition and working on the data.

just a note though, after pushing it over with adb I did an adb reboot recovery and was met with a blank screen and unresponsive phone. the backlight for the display was on, but that was it. a battery pull and the phone booted fine, adb reboot recovery again and all is well.

----------------------
10 minutes later...
all done...
now IK@#JR( QN#U$"TG(U#$%QTUQ#$!!!!!
it looks like CWM reset it's date time...
my new backup is no longer incrementing in time, it has started back over at 1970-01-01 very annoying, as now my backups will be out of order... and of course the file creation date (for all my backups) is jan 1st 1980 on every single CWM backup over the last 6.5 months...

Question Pushing 6.0.1.1

Kind of a noob with the Spectrum, have rooted my Eris and Incredible without problems before. One question about including the 6.0.1.1 recovery: Do I need to modify the adb commands to look at that file instead of the default one in the AIO? Should I just drop the 6.0.1.1 into the Files folder or do I need to rename the files?

Thanks,

If you grab the 6.0.1.1 file from koush, just delete the other image and rename 6.0.1.1 to what that file was. Much easier then trying to edit the .bat file.

Worked like a charm, no hang ups or anything, I'm able to get up to root in File Explorer.

Now just need to find a good ICS ROM for the Spectrum. Any suggestions on a stable daily driver??

Unfortunately we don't even have a fully operational ICS yet... Keep an eye on the breath of fresh air thread for updates on the CM9 and AOKP the dev are hard at work on.

im dumb and missing something. Clicking on the 6.0.1.1 link under touch recoveries does not download a file, but instead opens up a web page with a bunch of jibberish code. What am i doing wrong?

Why would we want to mod the ICS recovery? This was made from source code and beats anything that would be made from modding a non-source recovery.

Not sure, but all I know if I push the current CWM recovery the security disables the boot up and bricks the phone. There must be something in the stock recovery that passes the security check that we need to figure out.

Its signed. Modifying the the stock ics recovery will break that signature. And guess what that means? 'Security Error'.

Modifying the stock ics boot.img does the same thing, breaks the signature.

There is no way around it yet. We should know what we're talking about since TDM/Neph/jcase/and I have all been messing with this since the leak was discovered.

Default CWM Loop V6

I am hoping to have a little guidance before I continue messing around with my phone and completely screw it up. A while back I rooted my phone when it had V4 installed. Now that ICS is out I am trying to get it back to stock so I can take the OTA update. I used ROM manager so CWM could be installed. Following the instructions here: I was able to get it back to V6 stock. I attempted to apply the update only to find out CWM (non touch) was still installed.

I found this article here which redirected me to here.

I followed the directions to flash the stock ROM. I then took the OTA update only to find out CWM was still installed. Now I am stuck in the CWM loop and was wondering if I should follow the instructions here.

The directions to get out of the CWM loop state its for OTA updates going from V4 to V6. My OS is on V6 so what changes do I need to make? Is this the correct step to take? Thanks in advance for the help I just don't want to mess things up more than they already are.

The boot loop fix is universal, no matter what version your one.

As far as CWM, the old instructions are misleading and I need to correct them. You really want to be on CWM 6.0.1.0 or above. You can get this by installing CWM from RomManager.

As for restoring stock recovery, you probably skipped the second step of the restoring v4 or v6 thread. The first step restores the OS, the second step (flashing the .zip restore file) restores your recovery.

Hopefully this clears up the issues you were having.

I get exact same message and I just don't know what to do. When I look @ my SD card, I don't see the CMW folder (i.e. install failed??)

I'm trying to return to pure stock so I can push ICS OTA. I was told to install CWM first then run Neph81's restorer.

Can anyone help me? Also, once I install this, how do I boot into recovery?

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day!

If you're pushing the v7, you don't need to restore stock recovery. As far as I know, the tool wipes the device and installs the factory recovery and rom. It's the ota that needs the recovery and system apps (it runs a check before installing).

Neph can correct me if I'm wrong. I had cwm on my v6 installed and pushed v7 with no issues.

You won't see the clockworkmod folder unless you've created a backup previously using CWM. Alternatively, I presume you could just add the appropriate folders (SD>clockworkmod>backup) and that would work, but I just created a new backup.

Why push v6 so you can take the ota? Just push the v7 stock cab, save you a couple of steps.

How do I push an update, using a USB connection and LG update manager?
