The links are broken. Please fix.
the links aaaareeeee broken!!!
here are the fresh links: CWM 188.8.131.52.rar
where is the link for the flashimage.zip that file is missing.
no i put the folder 2gether so its user friendly.
it's giving me an error
./flash_image: not found
are you clicking the windows.bat file or the linux.sh file?
I tried Toke's instructions for installing CWM and my phone doesn't recognize the drivers for my phone, and your links to your .zip files don't work for your instructions. I'm getting really frustrated trying to do this. >< I just want CM6. That's it. I wanna make a recovery for my system as it is so if I screw it up (which seems likely given that I can't find clear, WORKING instructions for anything) I can have it the way it was.
If there's anyone i can talk to.. that'd be great.
i'm following these steps to install clockwork:
7. Open Terminal Emulator and execute the following commands.
#mount -o remount,exec /dev/block//vold/179:1 /sdcard (enter)
#cd /sdcard/recovery (enter)
#./flash_image recovery recovery.img (enter)
the last step i get an error saying:
#./flash_image: permission denied
why not just use the pc, only takes a couple of minutes?
Cause if you havent noticed alot of ppl have trouble getting it to work via PC.
i didn't know you can use the PC, is there a tut on how to ???
download the file CWM 184.108.40.206.rar and extract it to desktop, next power off your phone and fastboot it by holding vol down, end key, and tap power, it should stay on the white huawei screen, next open the file and run fastboot-windows than run install-recovery-windows, after you have done that, disconnect the usb cord and pull your battery wait 10 sec than put the battery back in. Next press and hold vol up, send key, and tap power, it should now boot into recovery and it should be green and black.
wow!!!! best tut ever!! it was sooo freaking easy to do this..
thanks a lot mate
Can't fine device when tryin to install cwm,
open device manager and delete android 1.0 than unplug the phone and plug it back in. or try uninstall drivers and re install them. http://www.mediafire.com/?j33yo9wy9bspm86
Just out of curiosity what is this clock work mod supposed to do?
CWM is a custom recovery that allows you to flash ROMs and flashable files such as certain themes, bootanimations, etc. Stock recovery only allows you to roll the phone back to stock.
So does the clockwork mod also allow you to flash back to stock?
If I don't do the clockwork mod and instam cm6 I can still just revert back to stock?
You can't flash a custom ROM without CWM or another custom recovery. You can, however, flash back to stock using the method in this post, regardless of whether you have a custom recovery or not.
This brings back xbox modding where I had to have a custom bios on my chip in order to install non stock software.
My chip also let me boot the stock bios.
So i would need to first root the phone.
do the clockwork mod.
Then I'd be able to install cm6.
and the cwm would allow me to revert back to stock if I chose.
So how many different roms or oses would the cwm let me have?
yes...just like soft modding an xbox, and xbox360!!!
