Default [CWM][New Clockworkmod]-Fixed No 2min reboot

New (fixed) CWM for Samsung Transform Ultra

I sought out some experience on this issue so I personally did not build this. The person responsible for building it is utkanos over in the rootzwiki forums. This guy has ported CWM to over 30+ devices and that is why I sought him out.
So thank him..

What I did was:
search for some one who could help us
asked him for his help
explained what our issues were
provided him with all the files, data dumps, and stuff he needed for building.

If you find an issue about the build and would like to report it, or ask him to make a change, he made a place for that here
All how-to's like installing and such please post here. If you would like to, you can post problems here and I will look into it further and work with utkanos personally

utkanos has uploaded this build source to his github. If you would like to view or download the source it's here

If you would like to make a donation to the developer, you can email him at utkanos@gmail.com

People we should also thank:

Interdpth For giving us the first clockworkmod, giving us root, for devoting his time and figuring out this very hard device

Bads3ctor for figuring out the problematic issue with rmt_storage and posting his results from testing

Chevanlol360 for testing, reporting, risking his phone, confirming things, and contributing his time.

Loota for testing and allowing me to teamview his computer and do some testing of my own while my TU is at samsung getting unbricked

Installation Instructions

Update from previous CWM
1. download recoveryinstaller.zip to your sdcard
2. reboot into cwm
3. select "install zip from sdcard"
4. select "choose zip from sdcard"
5. select recoveryinstaller.zip
6. select "yes"
when it finishes installing:
7. select advanced
8. select reboot recovery
you should be in new cwm now

Odin
1. download the CWM_Odin_pkg.zip
2. unzip it
3. Install samsung drivers if you don't have them already
4. open the Odin.exe in the folder
5. hit the "OPS" button and select the TransformUltra.ops file from the folder
6. select the "One Package" Button and select the build7.tar.md5 from the folder
Should look like this:


7. now put your phone into download mode (Vol down + camera + power)
8. plugin your phone and the yellow COM should light up

Now pay attention here

9. as soon as you hit start, remove the battery from the phone
10. wait until Odin finishes and shuts off the phone
11. put the battery back in the phone and boot strait into recovery
If you miss recovery, pull the battery before it boots and try again. If it does boot all the way into android, it will overwrite cwm with your stock recovery and you will have to flash it again..

Default Alternative ways to install and Known Issues

Install Alternative

If you dont have access to a Windows computer, Odin doesn't work, or any other problems, I have another way to do this right from the phone.

I have tested this on three devices and if you follow the directions, it will work everytime...

Instructions

From your phone:
1. download the raw_image..zip
2. unzip it and move recovery.img to the root of your sdcard ( /sdcard/recovery.img)
3. download Terminal Emulator from the market if you don't have it already
4. open Terminal Emulator
5. run these commands one-by-one:
Code:
su <hit enter>
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13  <hit enter>
It should return with an output of what was moved and what size the file was.
7. Then type:
Code:
reboot recovery
Your phone will reboot into the new recovery and you can enjoy like the rest of us..


Known Issues

1. E: cant find misc
utkanos has told me that this isn't something to worry about and if we don't have any other isues he will fix easily.

2. Flashing Kernels
(FIXED)
Thanks to psycho4us4 for risking his device for us and chevanlol360 for confirming this and finding the correct script to use

Download mirror to all Files above
note: in Google drive, you have to click "file" then "download" to download it

Thanks so much mav it works great! I stayed in cwm for about a half hour I didn't want to leave lol. That takes care of that bug. So between 2.3.6 with no ciq, & it's new update(Thanks chev!) wifi fixed by the way, & now the CWM that works right(Thanks mav!), I think (dare I say it...) Cyanogen isn't too far away. It just might be a little easier to port now, what do you think? Sorry if my dream came across to bold. No I'm not a developer, but I luv testing all these gr8t things all you guys put out. Thanks again!

Well the data dump linux command can be very dangerous if you dont know what you are doing. as instructed above is fine.. the most important thing to know is never push to a partition that is running. eg /system, /data, or /cache while in android. you will be very with your results

Im old so learned in dos. I write them out on paper in my own shorthand then enter them in. I understand what the code is doing and where and how things are listed but for now am not exploring anything with this. I don't know nearly enough Linux. My work has always kept me on Win**. So I'll leave it up to you and copy it down nicely.
1 thing that's true with linux or win, this is the proper way to do it.

I already had Bobz installed since i updated to 2.3.6. Im good with my set up so won't need to flash anything soon. My free time has a day it ends and this was the last thing I needed to get done to be up to date and happy.

I'm sure there are a few people testing just to answer the question so we should know soon.

you can "Restore" any kernel you like just fine but if you try to flash "install zip from sdcard" from a zip then the old cwm would brick your device.

restoring is the only method we have been able to do but when building custom roms you need to be able to install from a zip everything you need. you guys don't know how much this hinders development on this device

You need cwm for a linux system? Do you mean you need odin for a linux system?

Heimdall does work good. You could just do it like the second post. It's way easier than trying to do it from the computer.

So cwm works better with this but its not fully functional? What version of cwm is this?

Is flashing the kernel still an issue based on scripting commands?

It doesnt freeze up. I fixed permissions too and ya it does take longer than the old one. just be patient it does finish. guaranteed. try it again and let us know what is the outcome. like i said i did it and yes it took longer than the old version of cwm but it will finish. promise

So can a rom now be flashed without restoring it?

If someone creates one with an update zip that is.

Sorry this is my wife's phone and I am less confident if it goes poorly. Most of the stuff I see is boost based and has tweaks to work on sprint.

Thanks in advance.

Chevanlol360 has confirmed it guys that flashing kernels from an install.zip is working fully now thanks to psycho4us4 for risking his device for us all. Eff yeah!!! you both rock!! Chevan has also found the correct updater-script to do so.
I will be updating the thread with samples of each type of install.zip with the proper, working commands

sorry , i've been on vacation for the past week but i'm home now so stay tuned to the thread.

There are a few kinks to be worked out still (e: cant find misc) and a few others but NOTHING that will damage your device. so feel free to use this one as you like..
now, since I have a full report(thanks to all of you) I can report back to utkanos and ask him to make the changes for one final update.
of course, once I have it, I will update the op with the update

Default Finally...LoL

Well once I made it home and got on the laptop I was finally able to download the zip!!! Yay for me! I would like to say that I was able to flash flawlessly using your terminal method... Please note somewhere in the op that they should backup their original just in case something goes terribly wrong.. Like recieve a call right in the middle of the junk.... I will let you guys know this.. For all the noobs and seasoned alike.. Whenever you are using something like terminal emulator or even an adb push, you should put your phone into airplane mode... Commands to backup your original recovery if you haven't already..

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/what_ever_you_want_to_call_it_cant_use_spaces.bak

just tryin to help.. need all the info in one place...

Thanks again Mav...

Welcome..
I didn't bother suggesting that because you can just get the recovery.img from any prior nandroid backup.

just an FYI.. when you click a link from google drive and it brings you to the file and shows you everything inside, you have to click "File" at the top and then click "Download" in order to download it. Stupid I know but thats how it works I guess

Is this an update only? Or is this good for new installs?
I tried using the instructions in the OP, and am getting the E: cant find misc error. This is on a brand new, still stock OS phone.
I tried using the alternative instal method, but it will only work on a rooted phone and I was trying to install this to set up root anyway.
I'm running 2.3.6.

Yes you can install fresh/new (recommended)
read the known issues in the second post about the can't find misc
the only way you can install is the odin method if you are on an unrooted TU

So in other words, if I don't have a windows computer, I am currently out of luck when it comes to dealing with this phone...
Unless there's a decent method for rooting the phone, I can't seem to find one, the only one's I've seen link to a dropbox file that is no longer available.

If you're using Linux, then you can use adb to push the recovery.img file to your phone, but that's as much as I know in that regard. If you're on Apple, then why are you using an Android phone? (just kidding...but seriously, your guess is as good as mine) Sorry I can't be much more of a help.
