    I installed CWM thinking that was the only route to getting 4.1.2 ROM that was rooted. However even though Doctoror was very generous to make a working ROM, it does have some issues. So does anyone know how I can flash stock C811 recovery back to the phone, or am I stuck on CWM recovery?

    I was looking for 4.1.2 download from Casio and came across this...http://www.casiogzone.com/us/support/ . if you 'agree' in the downloads/software section it shows a table with a few files for the commando version of 4.0 and a txt file for how to do it. The information in the txt file was more technical than what I understand. But seems like it will get you back to stock phone. Here's what is in the text file

    =================================== How to setup the build environment. =================================== This document describes how to build a build for the C811. Please follow the steps below to complete the Build. 1. Download the Base environment from Code Aurora Forum (CAF) found at https://www.codeaurora.org/ The Manifest File is as follows: https://www.codeaurora.org/xwiki/bin/QAEP/ <Android releases> Date Tag / Build ID Chipset Manifest Android Version August 10, 2012 M8960AAAAANLYA153617 msm8960 M8960AAAAANLYA153617.xml 04.00.04 $ repo init -u git://codeaurora.org/platform/manifest.git -b release -m M8960AAAAANLYA153617.xml --repo-url=git://codeaurora.org/tools/repo.git $ repo sync 2. Overwrite the C811's open source environment with the environment downloaded in Step 1. 3. Add the (JDK) Java Development Kit's path to the environment variable PATH. example: $ export PATH=<JDK's install path>/bin:$PATH 4. Run the commands below: $ source build/envsetup.sh $ choosecombo release msm8960 user $ make clean && make -j8 Note: Ensure to match the last "-j8" to the Build environment. Caution: Please note that we cannot guarantee operation using images created with this build. ====================================================== (C) NEC CASIO Mobile Communications, Ltd. 2013, All rights reserved.

    Hope that helps. Seems like a way to get there but then I'm not real sure about what I'm looking at.

    Can't you just flash the stock recovery and be back to stock recovery?

    **** WARNING****

    I flashed the stock recovery over the CWM recovery and ran the update. When I rebooted the phone I had all sorts of problems. Any time the phone was asleep it would require a battery pull. I then tried the 410 update tool and would bootloop anytime the cellular radio was on. Next I flashed the 470 baseband and still no radio. Finally I obtained the stock Verizon baseband and was able to use the phone again, but I lost LTE.

    Bottom line, don't do it.

    If you are on 4.1.2 baseband M040. don't flash "stockrom.zip" file to go back to 4.0.4 baseband M020 it will get you bootloops.

    If the Commando 4G bootloader is locked then wouldn't the CWM be boot strapped? Meaning couldn't I just remove CWM somehow and the stock recovery would return?

    Also I'm still on 4.0.4.

    At least in my case the bootloader couldn't be locked since I've flashed custom recovery with no issues. There is no way to flash a custom recovery and/or kernel if the bootloader is still locked.

    I don't know....I can't just call Verizon up however and get another one as I don't have Verizon service right now. I'm using a AT&T GSM Sim.

    never thought about that... thats a strange pickle, you cant get support for the device, because you're on a different provider..

    might be a long shot, but casio covers it under 12 months directly, try calling them and asking about warranty info

    Its really complicated. I do Have Verizon....but its offline now because of an insanely high bill. So while I pay that off I'm using Straight Talk $45 plan and its on AT&T. That's why I'm on GSM. I should get my Verizon back within 6 months.

    As far as Casio might try that....the phone is under 3 months old. However its got a custom recovery and rooted. Although they didn't lock the boot loader, I'm sure rooting and heavy modding has voided the Casio warranty.

    If you use flashify to restore the stock recovery and then run the update it will appear that the update "broke" the phone. PM for details...

    Has anyone else tried this and did it successfully? Flashing from CWM to stock recovery on 4.0.4 stock?

    Not looking good for you...

    Did you get in touch with Casio about the warranty?

    Just did. They said they don't handle any warranty options. All that goes through Verizon.

    I do have stock 4.1.2 recovery image and can make a zip, but haven't read that post before you broke it. I guess you don't need it anymore...

    My phones not broke. I'm running stock 4.0.4 with CWM installed. That's it. Everything else working fine.

    I've got a stock recovery for 4.1.2, not 4.0.4...
