Default 100% Stock NANDROID backup, and stock recovery

100% stock Nandroid Backup

CWM 4.0.1.4 Triumph

Stock Recovery

make sure you install the CWM by going into fastboot (vol - and power on) Hook up usb, then drop the recovery.img in the folder on the MOBILE drive.

Extract "Stock Triumph 1980 01 06.00.00.34.7z" to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/ Boot into CWM and look for mounts. First format system, data, cache, and under advanced format dalvik cache, then select "backup and restore" and under the restore options select the Stock_Triumph_1980-01-06.00.00.34 folder, and it will restore a never powered on backup of the stock rom.

Post split into new thread so it could be linked to the root guide.

Please let us know if there are other good root-related threads to include there.

Thanks again and good luck!

I've stickied this for a while...eventually, since its now linked in the root guide, I'll remove the sticky, but since there's only three stickied threads here in the all-things-root sub-forum, this is okay (we just don't want too many threads stickied that will take away "space" for your guy's threads).

Cheers!

did you just make a pun?

Actually, the process is a lot simpler than I originally thought it would be.

First, you have to download Gingerbreak and the Clockwork Recovery files.

I downloaded the Gingerbreak apk on my computer, copied it to my SD card, and then after ejecting the SD card from the computer, used ES File Manager to launch it. I had to reboot the phone once for Gingerbreak to work. (reboot - launch Gingerbreak - GB reboots again)

After Gingerbreak works and reboots your phone, you need to shut it back down. Hold the volume - button and press the power button. This should get you in to a text-only screen.

At that point, you need to plug in to a computer. After drivers finish loading, you should get a new drive letter. Look for a folder there named Image.

There's already a file there named recovery.img. Rename this to recovery.img.bu. While you're at it, copy this back to your computer for safekeeping, as well.

Open the Clockwork Recovery Zip file that you downloaded, and look for Recovery.img. Copy this file to the Image folder on your phone.

Eject the device from Windows using the icon in the system tray. ALWAYS do this with any flash drive or external hard drive to prevent data loss.

You'll now need to do a battery-pull to reset the phone.

At this point, you can boot the phone normally, or you can hold the Volume + button to get in to Clockwork.

Inside of Clockwork, you use the volume buttons to highlight a menu item and the power button to select it. The very fist thing I did was take a backup of my ROM, just in case. While I don't plan on installing Cyanogen any time soon, I do want to de-bloat my phone; I want to get rid of Twidroyd, Poynt, and SCVNGR. I don't actually care whether the apps are installed, but since Market keeps updating them whether I want to or not, I have decided to get rid of them...

At that point, flashing custom ROM's to the phone involves copying files to the SD card and re-running recovery (by starting with the Volume + button held down), but since there are no decent custom ROM's yet, the only real purpose to this exercise is to be able to make and restore a backup.

First, I rooted my phone with Gingerbreak.
I would actually do it in this order:

1. Install CWM Recovery.
2. Create a backup of you current stock ROM.
3. Install Gingerbread to Root and you can use CWM Recovery to install it if you choose to do so.

At least if something goes wrong with the Gingerbread installation, you can restore your backed up stock ROM using CWM Recovery.


Instructions to install CWM Recovery

From Pre's Post:ClockworkMod Recovery [For Motorola Triumph]


RED indicates where I've made changes or offered further explanation.






Quote:
  • Download and unzip recovery file onto PC (The CWM 4.0.1.4 Triumph file)
  • Power off Triumph
  • (This is called Bootloader or fastboot mode) Hold Volume Down + Power and wait until (I initially didn't hold down the keys long enough when I first tried.)
  • Screen shows "Incoming Download Mode", repeating lines of "polling, get oemsbl_mode = 1" (open attached thumbnail below for a sample of what you should see on your screen). This line will constantly repeat as it polls.
  • Connect Triumph to PC via USB after getting the message. I found that I could not leave the USB cable connected to enter Bootloader mode.
  • PC should show new drive MOBILE (FAT partition) connected with 100 MB capacity with ~55 MB free
  • Within MOBILE, find and enter \image directory (there should be about 7 files, including "recovery.img")
  • Backup "recovery.img" (I renamed to recovery.old.img) or just save a copy provided by barnito.
  • Copy "recovery.img" from previously downloaded CWM zip file into the \image directory. You are replacing the recovery.img.
  • Power off Triumph (I pulled out battery, but perhaps a less invasive route exists)
  • (This is called Recovery mode)Hold Volume Up + Volume Down + Power
  • Voila! CWM v4.0.1.4 should have loaded!
  • Move up and down with Volume buttons, select with Power, back with Menu
  • Select "reboot system now" to reboot phone to it's normal state.

Nothing. You did it correctly.

After you see the warning signal screen all you have to do is hit the home button and the stock recovery main page will pop up.

HELP! I tried to boot after formatting everything like the op... now it isnt booting...
EDIT
So a little kick in the pants from myself... turned off phone, pulled battery, took SD card out, tried to just manually add the files... long story short got the thing booted from a different SD card... however, I would still like to know what in the heck I did wrong lol.

Same thing happened to me i formated system cache data then noticed i didnt install the stock triumph correctly( I didnt extract it ) i think what happened is by formatting it i erased the ROm or functionality of it why it was stock on M splash screen. I was able to fix it by using an sd card reader and properly installing the stock triumph file.

edit: i was able to restore to stock. whew! the only way i was able to extract was by using my panasonic camera>loaded the sdcard in>then plugged to my laptop! when i tried to use an old cheapo reader, all computers here at home were asking if i wanted it formatted and was giving me all sorts of error O.o

btw restoring back to stock was my last resort as i think, in my noobie opinion, i somehow bricked my phone. i was installing an app (not sure if i want to mention the name of the hacked app here) and it wouldn't go through *stucked at progress installation bar so i just backed out of it/closed it. but when i powered it off then on, phone got hanged up!?! this post was a big help! thanks!!!

...now onto installing apps! again! yey! in a way a got a new phone!

Quote:
"Extract "Stock Triumph 1980 01 06.00.00.34.7z" to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/"

how do i do that part?

my phone is acting up right now -- stuck with the virgin mobile logo during power on and wont go through. have to pull the battery out to power off the blank but turned on screen.

im trying to fix it with my very limited knowledge.

I don't know if anyone here can help me with this, but I restored my triumph to the stock ROM that was in this thread and that worked fine, I then tried to change the recovery from CWM to stock and then it wouldn't turn on and just gave me the screen in the picture I attached. I'm assuming this happened because I forgot that the stock ROM did not have root access. Is there any way I can fix this to make my triumph usable again?? any and all help would be greatly appreciated

i would go back into bootloader mode and copy the cwm recovery image back over to the phone, reboot and if that allows the android os to boot then redownload gingerbreak and unroot your phone. then reboot back into cwm and do a data, cache, and dalvik cache wipe, that way it clears all the random cache files and such from gingerbreak and superuser. reboot into bootloader mode and flash the original recovery img file to it and reboot again. that way you have unrooted your phone fully and cleared out any random logs and such in the phones files that may be unwanted to the system.....

How long does it typically take for the backup to occur? I've been sitting here for quite some time and the little progress bar hasn't even started...

EDIT: Nevermind, it's done. I suppose the bar wasn't a progress bar after all.

Really could use some help here... I keep trying this method and keep getting this (click here for pic) when I reboot... I'm beginning to wonder if the nandroid is bad now? Not sure what I could be missing here... I've redownloaded, used different (formatted) sd cards, etc...

note that you must extract any zip or rar or whatever directly to your sd card location it is going to be resident in if it has an MD5 file as part of it. Extracting it anywhere else and copying it messes up the checksum in the MD5 file that verifies it as a "trustworth file"

Have a couple questions, when I try to extract the stock nandroid. First, when I open my file explorer on my pc, it says mobile e: (thats where I was gonna move the nandroid file). In the instructions, it says to extract to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/. Do I move this file to mobile e:, then move it with es file explorer then, to the appropiate folder?? And also, when I tried to extract the stock triumph 1980 01 0600............, it says not enough space, is this the sd card or internal memory?? And, how do I rectify the problem.

It needs to go on the SD card under /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/

You have your phone connected and mass storage enabled? You are not in download or recovery mode correct? I have USB debugging enabled, and I can then pick whether to enable mass storage mode or not. When everything is done correctly you will see all the files/folders on the SD card, if you don't see that then you are doing something wrong. The fact that the drive is mobile e: makes me think you are in download mode.

Sorry to bump an old thread, just wanted to say thanks for linking the stock recovery for the Motorola triumph. Couldn't find it anywhere else on the internet. I'm sure this would be useful for other people returning their Triumphs for a replacement.

I've been looking for this stock image for a while now, thank you! Only issue I had was the splash image remained from the Minimal Triumph mod I used prior to this.

make sure you install the CWM by going into fastboot (vol - and power on) Hook up usb, then drop the recovery.img in the folder on the MOBILE drive.

Extract "Stock Triumph 1980 01 06.00.00.34.7z" to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/ Boot into CWM and look for mounts. First format system, data, cache, and under advanced format dalvik cache, then select "backup and restore" and under the restore options select the Stock_Triumph_1980-01-06.00.00.34 folder, and it will restore a never powered on backup of the stock rom.

Default please bring my MT back....

Hi all,

I need some help here,,,I followed the steps as listed below and after the last reboot, my MT powers up but simply stays on the Motorola Logo, nothing happens after that,,,

here is what happened originally that led to this problem...

-- I started seeing Low internal memory icon on the phone
-- I searched online and found that it was happening because of some log files getting created eating up the memory and these are not being cleared.
-- Found a article that described how to fix it.
-- It showed how to root the phone (i did NOT use gingerbread for rooting, i used Terminal Emulator)...I did that successfully , installed superuser app and deleted the log files...checked the memory, got back almost 800 mb back...
-- all was well until this time.
-- then the article listed that I should un-check the permissions for all the folders so that the log files will not be written again using up the memory...

-- so i began doing that and can't remember exactly after which folder I modified the permissions for, the phone simply started showing the exclamation mark with android guy....
-- I tried to do a factory reset 1st but that did not help and then I looked up for all the options and found this forum and followed these steps....




please please help,,,i don't want to loose the phone...

how can I bring it back ???

S.

The exclamation point/android graphic is the stock recovery. The instructions you followed were not clear.

Hold volume down and power (from a Power off state) until you get the "polling" screen. plug in USB to computer. After you see the "Mobile" drive on your computer, open it. Open the "Image" folder. This is where the recovery.img file goes. Rename the original to recovery.img.bak or something.
Copy the new cwm recovery.img into the Image folder. close window and right click, eject the mobile drive. unplug usb.
Pull battery to get out of download mode (the black polling screen).
Power on by holding power and both vol buttons. This will boot into your new custom recovery (cwm in this case). before you flash the stock Rom, just try to fix permissions in cwm recovery and reboot.

I suggest using cwm 5.0.2.7. If it's a .zip file, unzip it on your computer so you have the recovery.img file alone. Spelling counts!
cwm recovery 5.0.2.7

Now, instead of restoring that backup you downloaded, just flash this stock Rom:
[ROM]Bone Stock & Stock Deodex ROM's Triumph-Now Resets Splash.img!!
You will have to root the phone again.

Now I may have misunderstood what you are s saying, but you remove write permissions (uncheck the w) on the alog FILES only... NOT any folders.

Default Help needed to restore to stock

The last post in this thread was Aug 2013 so I hope someone can help

My Motorola Triumph is stuck on the red Motorola logo and won't go any further after trying to return to stock

I'm following these instructions here from this thread
100% Stock NANDROID backup, and stock recovery

Here are the steps I took

1) My starting point, I'm already rooted and have CWM installed with a custom rom i.e update-cm-7.1.0-TG-Beta-0.8-Triumph-signed

2) I have the stock backup files 'Stock Triumph 1980 01 06.00.00.34.7z' unzipped and copied to the sd card in this folder/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup

3) I'm trying to follow the thread here http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-
things-root/392756-100-stock-nandroid-backup-stock-recovery.html#post3048801

4) I've downloaded the stock recovery.img file which is extracted

5) I can go to the polling download (hold down power and volume down button) and connect my usb cable and I a new drive in Windows for the MOBILE drive and the IMAGEfolder containing the current CWM recovery.img file

6) I can make a backup of the CWM recovery.img file e,g call it CWM_recovery.img

7) I can drop my stock recovery.img file (from step 4) to the IMAGE folder

8) I can remove the battery and hold down power and both volume buttons and try and get back to CMW to restore the stock files

9) But my problem is getting back to CWM to do a restore of the stock files. I can't do that now, because the recovery.img file is now replaced with the stock recovery.img file

How do I do that ?

A) Am I supposed to not do it in this order and instead, at step 1 when I'm already in CMW, restore the stock files in the backup folder of the sd card WITHOUT the stock recovery.img file in place at that point in time ?

B) I tried that and the stock restore progresses to the end and I power off in
the CWM menu. I plug in the USB cord and hold down power and volume down to go into polling mode and within Windows I can copy the stock recovery.img file to the IMAGE folder.

C) I'm assuming at this point, the stock files are restored and the correct stock recovery.img file is in the IMAGE folder

D) I then pull the battery and just try and power up. I don't know if I'm supposed to just boot up or do something else.

E) I try and boot up but the Triumph just sits there with a red logo and doesn't progress to any stock Virgin Mobile screens

Can you help

I'm at work right now so I might not be fully understanding the hang-up.

The recovery you have listed is very old. I would start with one that's 5.0 +

If you can get into the custom recovery then I would go to the MTDEV site and download one of the stock ROMs we have there. From there I would put the ROM in it's zipped form and use the recovery to load it.
