    hey all! i have a rooted verizon s3 and i was wanting to play around, but before i get too crazy i want to make a nandroid. however, each time i try to create one with CWM, i get an error that says something like you have 12g of space on your sd card. i know that i have enough space on my card so i'm not sure what the deal is. how have others gotten around this? help a bro make a nandroid!

    hmm, im using v5.5.0.4 CF - v1.5

    i dont have an option to flash cwm touch
    are you using the cwm manager app or are you trying this directly from recovery?

    both, i believe. i've selected "backup current ROM" and also rebooted into recovery and tried there. no dice. oh and the version i posted is for ROM manager. perhaps looking at wrong thing?

    rom manager is incompatible with cwm for s3
    you really should uninstall it and use the cwm that you downloaded to root the device

    i downloaded the apk file, which was just a different gui for cwm but still didn't fix it. that tar file sounds like it's used to root using odin, which i already am.

    yes but that version of cwm is not standard.
    you are not using the right cwm
    you must not use rom manager and rom manager has probably flashed a non chain fire cwm version
    you should flash that version (should be able to do it via mobileodin)
    edit:
    you arte on a much older recovery :/

    can i just reboot as normal from the downloading screen?

    yes, just hold the power button down untill the screen goes off. then click power again.

    which part failed?

    complete (write) operation failed

    looks like the issue

    edit - holding down power isn't doing anything. can i pull the battery? at this point i just want to get back to a regular boot.
     
  18. Rastaman-FB

    Rastaman-FB Extreme Android User

    you can

    holding down power for 10 seconds should force a shut down

    pulling battery will work too

    write operation failed is odd, that would suggest a corrupt file or you used the wrong one (used zip instead of tar)
    also you made sure you didnt tick Repartition

    i have to go to bed (uk time, early start)
    make a thread on xda see if anyone else has come across this

    definitely used the tar file and definitely didn't tick repartition.

    cheers, have a good night.

    If you can still boot into the OS, install EZ Recovery from the app store. From there, you can install CWM or TWRP2.2 (I like the latter) and reboot into recovery with a button.

    What is your SD card formatted to? You need to format card to FAT32 for CWM to work.

    I had to use cwm 6.0.1.0 from ez recovery.
