    Someone was asking for a nandroid that can be restored with CWM

    here it is

    It is for the Metro Concord 2, but will work on the T-Mobile version too

    You can ignore the error about .android_secure.img not found skipping restore


    unzip to your sdcard

    dont rename the folders

    you must convert your phone to a Concrod 2

    you will need

    3 tubes super glue
    2 in x 2 in piece of tin foil
    4 Ostrich eggs
    1 Micrometer
    Turkey baster
    and 6 yellow M&Ms

    when you have all these items, let me know, and I will provide instructions on converting the Concord 2 to a Concrod 2

    msmsoft Newbie

    you can download zip or rar archiver for it, you can use card reader for SD

  16. Can you explain tho whole process in detail I'm stuck ...I do nt know the first step from the last !!
  17. msmsoft

    msmsoft Newbie

    Easily... Copy to SD card folder from zip to folder clockworkmode/buckup, Press two button power and volume+ and release when you'll see clockworkmode. Then go to restore menu, navigation buttons +/- enter to menu power button, choose restore and select earlier unzipped folder press restore, then you'll see exception, ignore it. After long working, reboot device and enjoy
  18. I don't get this !! I'm new to this!!

    Your phone is already rooted, right? If so, then download the file in the first post. If you downloaded it using your phone, it's easier. Make sure it's on your sdcard for simplicity (move it if it's not). Then, I recommend downloading Es file explorer because it can unzip the file for you (unless, of course you already have an app that'll do so). The exact steps from that point kind of depends on what app you use at that point, but basically you (1) open up whatever app you have that'll zip/unzip (2) navigate to the folder the file got downloaded to (probably called downloads) (3) tap or long press (depends) on the file you downloaded (4) unzip the file to the folder that msmsoft said (clockworkmod/backups)

    If you downloaded it using your computer then, you'll essentially have to do the same sort of thing. Make sure you have a program that can zip/unzip files. If you don't have one, download one like 7-zip. Navigate to the folder you downloaded it to (again probably downloads). I would then unzip it on the computer then plug the phone into the computer, navigate to the folder msmsoft mentioned, and drag & drop the file into that folder.

    If your phone isn't rooted yet...then this is the wrong thread, lol. There's one for this phone that specifically has root in the name.

    Post again if you need more instructions. [emoji4]
  20. I tried all the above and the recovery doesn't recognize that the recovery folder is even there. Does anyone know how to create a flashable zip back up? Maybe someone who is more experienced can up load that since it a simpler process.

    You mean that it doesn't recognize your sdcard? Or that it doesn't see the file? Once the file is unzipped to the clockwork/backup folder and you go into recovery you choose backup/restore then restore from external sdcard, I believe.

    yeah, the concord 2's have an issue with mounting external sd cards. ive tried 3 different ones and still get an error saying 'cannot mount /external_sd'

    you have 32gb sdcard, i had the same problem. Take 16gb sdcard or less gb and format it as vfat and enjoy, cwm mode doesn't work with large capacity sdcard

    i tried a 32gig, a 16gig, a 2gig and a 512mb. all were rejected. ill try the vfat and see if that works.


    sweet jesus it worked.

    not sure if this will fix the problem i have, but its something i havent tried, so thanks for at least making it possible!
