    Okay PCD Chaser uses, here it is. how to root your phone, and install Clockwork Mod Recovery.

    To Root

    1. Download Ministro II From Here: Download Now

    2. Download Poot_debug.apk From Here: Download Now

    Run poot and let it download what it needs.
    Run poot again
    Select Download Superuser

    it will run and install

    Congrats you just rooted your chaser


    I and Downthemachine Spent a good week or so building this Recovery for the chaser.
    I have tested, working 100%


    Reboot phone into fastboot mode.. VOl+ power..

    Connect phone via USB, install the fastboot command. "windows or linux"

    then in terminal fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    Download Flash Image:

    you have to use flash_image and adb to flash the custom recovery

    [HIGH]adb push flash_image /data/local/tmp/flash_image
    adb push recovery.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/flash_image
    adb shell
    /data/local/tmp/flash_image recovery /data/local/tmp/recovery.img


    Be careful wiping /data, your touchscreen files are somewhere in /data. until we figure out the rom structure. i dont advise it

    Is there anyway you can better describe the ADB push for the clockwork 5?
    Ive never used adb or dont really kno where to start. Trying to root my girlfriend s chaser. I rooted my droid razr few weeks ago so im somewhat familiar with recovery and flashing

    Dm47021: How did you get the ADB to recognize the phone? Mine won't recognize it at all, even with the drivers.

    EDIT: IF you cannot use ADB... You MUST be rooted.

    Requires: A working terminal emulator
    A root file explorer (ES File Explorer and Root Explorer both work)
    flash_image and recovery.img found in OP

    1) Download the flash_image and recovery.img to your device, folder is irrelevant. Make it your sdcard root to make it easy (/sdcard or /sdcard/Download both work)
    2) Use your explorer to move flash_image to /system/bin
    3) Use explorer to change permissions to RWX/R-X/R-X (or do a chmod 755 from the terminal)
    4) use the command "flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img"
    5) Done. Use /sdcard/Download/recovery.img if you used that location.

    Iam going to need CM7 testers soon, i dont have this phone so i cant personally test.

    I volunteer! Mine is out of service, so I won't be able to test 3G or cell functionality, but I can certainly test everything else.

    Downloading now. I'll be able to report on it potentially tonight, but probably tomorrow night (I'll be helping my fiancee set up her new Asus TF300 so will have all my tools ready to go anyway)

    EDIT: In case someone else gets a Chaser, could you add the alternate terminal method to the OP? A google search reveals that a LOT of people have issues with the ADB and the Chaser.

    Question before I install it: Any particular features you want tested? I can use this as a daily driver as an 'app player' or 'mp3 player' and test those features.

    Another update: I resaved your config file in-phone (ES File Explorer's note editor), then rebuilt the *.zip file. Still won't install. No error now, simply "Installation aborted"

    As soon as you have an updated zip with the ROM and signing, I can try to install it again, bro.

    Go into the zip and see if there is a folder, then inside that folder is a meta-inf, system, and boot.img.
    Those three folders need to be at the root of the zip file.

    dibblebill Android Expert

    The folder structure is correct, I've verified that. I've never had luck with the updater scripts, though. I couldn't even make my own update.zip that simply put a *.txt in /system/.

    Change permissions of what exactly? I'm having trouble. Then I check system /bin and its rwx rx rx already. I try the command in the emulator and get a permission denied error
  23. dibblebill

    dibblebill Android Expert

    The file you used your explorer to copy and paste. If you use a terminal emulator, you have to 'su' first.

    OK... I'm learning lol... so I'm starting off fresh. I've got flash_image.bin and recovery.img ( out of cwm installer zip file) . Now what, step by step. Thx.

    Do you already have root access? IF so, get either ES File Explorer (and enable "Root Explorer" in the settings and mount /system), or Root Explorer. Then, follow the above steps
