    ClockWorkMod v5.0.2.7 for Samsung Prevail SPH-M820

    :update something was wrong with the last version installing zips, i fixed it

    :update, new version and I added ability to backup /restore kernel (boot)

    Only Download ClockWorkMod from the links provided in my post, if you download ClockWorkMod from some other source and brick your phone, you will need to go to the place that provided those files for help.

    I would also like to mention that you should not use Rom Manager on the Prevail to try and and flash CWM or kernels, Rom Manager is an excellent program. but our phone is not supported for those functions yet.

    If you have problems installing this, try reading the instructions again , and if you need help describe what you have done so far and which step you are getting stuck on.

    If you DO NOT already have one of my older versions of ClockWorkMod port on your Prevail you will need to install it with Odin. If you already have a previous version of my ClockWorkMod port on your Prevail use CWM update

    Install CWM with Odin
    1. Download and unzip CWM5027-SPH-M8200-FOR-ODIN-FIXED2A.zip
    2. Download stick.zip and copy stick.zip to SD Card
    3. Install the Samsung USB drivers (if you don't already have them)
    4. From a powered off phone put phone into Download Mode by holding Volume Down, Camera Button, and Power button until the Yellow Downloading message appears
    5. Plug phone into USB port
    6. Open Odin (on your computer), you should see a yellow box with a com number
    7. Select SPHM820.ops in the OPS box
    8. Put a check in One Package
    9. Select the CWM5027-SPH-M8200-FOR-ODIN-FIXED2A.TAR file in the One Package box
    10. Click Start
    11. When Odin says reset and the phone reboots Hold Vol UP, and Power button until you are in CWM DO THIS QUICKLY BEFORE PHONE BOOTS, IF PHONE BOOTS UP ALL THE WAY START BACK AT STEP 4. you do not have to wait for Odin to say pass, that does not work
    12. In CWM go into install zip from sdcard (use volume buttons to scroll between options and home button to select)
    13. select choose zip from sdcard
    14. select stick.zip
    15. select Yes - Install stick.zip
    16. After it is done installing Press back button
    17. Select Reboot System Now

    Install CWM Update
    1. Download the SPH-M820-CWM-5027-UPDT-FIXED2A.zip
    2. Copy it to your SD Card
    3. From a powered off phone put phone into CWM Recovery Mode by holding Volume Up, and Power button until you are in the CWM-based Recovery Menu
    4. In CWM-based Recovery go into install zip from sdcard
    5. select choose zip from sdcard
    6. select SPH-M820-CWM-5027-UPDT-FIXED2A.zip
    7. select Yes - Install SPH-M820-CWM-5027-UPDT-FIXED2A.zip
    8. After it is done installing Press back button
    9. Select Reboot System Now

    Now all we need are Cyanogenmod and a lag fix, and we'll be rolling with the big postpaid boys.:p
    Thanks hroark. And shabby and all the others making this phone kick you-know-what. :D
    Now to find out if this jewel works, as I was interested in flashing shabbykernel anyway...

    This only puts shabbykernel in the recovery mode, not regular boot mode.
    I guess I should of included it in regular boot as well, but I thought most people had it already

    Download worked for me with IE and Firefox

    Can someone provide me a link to download shabbykernel? I can't seem to find it. Oh and leafmod or whatever it's called would be nice.

    Is there a way to flash the recovery w/o odin? If not, i have to borrow a neighbor's computer since i run Ubuntu

    Do i have to have shabbymod first or can i do this first?
  11. hroark13

    hroark13 Well-Known Member Developer

    you do not have to have shabbymod for this
    actually it is better you do this first
    create the phone backup
    then do shabbymod

    if all else fails, Hail Odin

    Awesome!!! So now I have a question, since we now have CWM how easily could CM be ported? (scale of 1-10 preferably) This will be great when I get my repaired/whatever Samsung does to my phone to fix the screen and I install ShabbyMod.

    I really dont know, but I am thinking about trying it

    You'd be right but I'm a slowpoke lol. So I flashed it but don't see how to get to the extra options? Is the n00b in me showing again? :p

    what part are you getting stuck on

    after you flashed it, were you able to get into CWM
  16. alicmodder

    alicmodder Member

    Well I flashed it but when I reboot while holding down the suggested buttons, I'm still seeing the stock recovery, or so it seems.

    EDIT: NVM. If it had anything to do with it, I flashed shabbykernel then reflashed CWM and now I'm good. Thanks again. :D

    most excellent work hroark, this weekend permitting ill try to pump out a proper release of shabbymod guys. hroark need two things from ya :) 1 is source available? 2 the replenish is its sister phone mount points are teh same however key controls im sure are not.

    the reason why i ask for source code is so that i may be able to talk to a few people and get it upstream and official so that rom manager is supported (fully supported i mean) as it stands right now i know you guys have support with ACS updater app wont have anything in there for a bit but if the nice themers here could start making the flashable zip versions and uploading them im sure it would be filled with stuff in no time :)

    Hey I was wondering can we update cwm thru rom manager
  22. Shabbypenguin

    Shabbypenguin Well-Known Member Developer

    no as 4.x.x.x is a version of cwm that koush doesnt even support yet, this is the latest version of cwm, and until koush signs off on it it wont get added to rom manager. altho we dont have to worry about it so much, as time goes on if yall get an updated cwm (no real reason to tho) a cwm flashable version can be made

    I dont know if you consider this source code or not, but these are all the files I needed to make, mod, and mess with to get this working

    I created this on an Android build system that I setup on Ubunto 11.4

    You have to put the prevail folder in


    you have to put the graphics.c in


    If you are familiar with Android builds you should be able to work with this

    I really am not too experienced with Andoid builds, so I am not going to be able to answer alot of questions, but I will try

    This is an epic breakthrough for the prevail community.

    GREAT JOB!!!

    We really owe many many thanks to you hroark13 and Shabbypenguin

    Really thank you guys soooooooo much. One thing I hated about creating my theme is the factory resets afterward to keep everything running smoothly but, this CWR is going to make my theming much less of a hassle.

    So thank you again
