Default Cwm 6.0.0.1/4/5 warning!!! Don't flash it!!

Guys,

I don't believe the new cwm 6.0.0.1 is quite ready for prime time. I don't know about other devices but it didn't work on mine. I did a nandroid and tried to restore it. There was an error and I bricked at the boot logo. Fortunately, I had a nandroid made through the previous cwm. I flashed the old (working) recovery through fastboot and am restoring the nandroid now. No muss, no fuss.

I am concerned about less savvy root users, so I am putting out this warning. Don't flash the new cwm recovery on the gnex. My experience shows that it just doesn't work.

Steven

Just have a regular nandroid ready as well as a regular cwm image file that you can flash over to recovery via fastboot, if you plan to try to do a restore of a nandroid created from the new cwm.

Hey Trophy, by the way, I'm changing my AFV app to know how to validate/verify TWRP Nandroid backups just like it can for CWM Nandroid backups...(TWRP creates a .md5 file for each .win file that is created vs. a single nandroid.md5 file).

Hope to release the new version very soon .

Just loaded up 6.0 Touch with JB 3.6. Restoring apps now. Everything seemed to work out fine (did an entire wipe). Once I'm set up, I'll try restoring a Nandroid and see what happens.
Probably should have looked here before flashing the new CWM, but I'm usually the risk taker anyway.

Well, 3.6 didn't want to restore any apps. Going to reinstall. Restored my backup I made with 6.0 and ended up with no softkeys or notification bar.
I'll give it another shot before trying TWRP.

Looks like Koush agreed. It's been replaced by version 6.0.0.4 now. I will run it through the ringer and report back.

I'd like to look into RM and tell you which one I'm on, but each time I click on the app drawer, I get 0 apps. Ugh, two unsuccessful installs of 3.6. Not sure if it's the new recovery or what.

Edit: Going to restore. I'm on 6.0.0.4 (Touch version).

2nd Edit: I don't recommend anyone use this. I'm trying to find a nandroid I can restore that works. My latest has no notification bar or softkeys. Hoping to try an older one.

I am experiencing similar results. I made a nand backup of my current configuration (JB 3.6), then wiped the phone and clean installed JB 3.5 which went ok. I then nand restored to 3.6 and there was a strange new option in recovery after the restore process completed. Something like..."your new rom may replace cwm with the stock recovery". Then it gave some option to flash recovery. I wasn't sure what it was so I just used the "go back" option and it automatically rebooted me to system...aaaaand I've been on the boot animation for the last 10 minutes now. Going to pull the battery and retry, if not I'll reflash a JB rom from scratch. Will keep the thread updated but until then

I agree with Steven/Dread. Don't use the 6.x versions of cwm at this time.

Definitely good to know. Thanks for the heads up.

Still running 5.8.0.2 here.... but TWRP is really starting to look appealing. I like CWM and bought the full version of ROM Manager, and Touch Recovery since Koush has done such great work all this time. I've been hesitant to try TWRP mostly because I paid for CWM only a few months ago, but also because of the lack of cross-compatibility of NANDroid backups.

Yeah, IBT, I saw that "option" too when I tried to reboot. Not sure what's going on?
Whatever it is, I'm going to TW now!

Guys, I don't think 6.x cwm is restoring data/data. This may be why dread is not able to access his apps. Are you using a launcher by any chance dread?

Yep, I had to manually download all my apps as Google didn't restore (I don't use TiBa). Loaded up Nova, and since then, no apps in the app drawer (though still accessible through Settings - Apps).

You can install it (and TWRP) directly from my app, too.

Back up and running. Steven, you think this is sticky worthy? I'm kinda leaning toward YES.

And I think it prolly applies to all Gnex versions as per the handy reference chart here:

Thanks for the post! I just recently switched from CWMR Touch to TWRP and don't plan to go back, but thanks for the warning.

So the moral of this thread is for those less inclined (e.g. me ), stay on CWM 5.8.xx until Koush gets the kinks worked out with help from those more inclined (e.g. you guys)?

Sure is nice of you guys to beta test this.

While were at it, can we get a brain sample too?

BTW, flashed the touch version and really don't like the interface. I'll take a dark background, thanks.

Also don't see a way to flash a v5 touchscreen cwm from RM, just the std version. Did I screw up?

NVM, just flashed TWRP.

Wasn't by chance a nandroid made on one of the broken versions?

Went back to CWM 5802 touch. Tried 2.2 twrp on my GN and not a fan....was clunky and lagged. I use twrp exclusively on our kindle fire and it's great though. Very old version I think.

How is your Nexus7 you lucky man!?!

Very nice, but off-topic. Took it to work today and left it on for 12 hours (20 minutes of screen time while people played with it), but battery still at 91%.

Just wish I had aokp on it. I get tired of having to use the power button to wake it all the time.

Um, I think / thought I fixed that...what version of the app are you running?

My v1.5 version says "TWRP touch toro 2.1.2" in the context menu and "Flash openrecovery-toro-2.1.2.img" at the confirmation prompt.

I think that was an issue on the 1.4 version (I forgot to update the name, but the recovery was correct).

Let me know, sir!

edit: oops! I have an un-released version (that's still v1.5) that says that I fixed the naming issue there...(LOL, I found and fixed it when I built a "Ninja version" of the unstableapps touch recovery for Voidedsaint about a couple of weeks back (i.e., same as the Yoda version but with VS' avatar, Ryu); I didn't release it because other than the new recovery, the naming issue was all I changed--the recovery was correct, just named wrong)

That makes sense. I uninstalled and reinstalled from Market and still had the issue. I'm on v.1.5.

How long is this beta? That's what prompted me to uninstall it, thinking there might be a stable release.

I guess I could take the "(beta)" moniker off of it (I kind of liked having it ).

When I started it, I really didn't know if it might be useful to folks other than GNex users and wanted to make sure it was stable and worked for everyone, regardless of OS and device (so far, so good ).

I've got almost 10,000 downloads and more than 1,500 stable installs (not a bad percentage from my experience). Most (more than 50%) of my users are on Gingerbread believe it or not, so that means that most are not GNex users , which is pretty cool.

I think I've got all the kinks out of it (no recent application error reports that I haven't addressed in the most recently published version). I've got some ideas for additions and enhancements, but nothing imminent to be released.

So, I probably can drop the beta designation off of it and I'll try to do that this coming weekend.

Cheers!
