[Task] [Root] Flash multiple zips at once, via CWM based recovery
Monday 04th of February 2013
I'm a bit fed up of flashing 9 zips every time I upgrade my ROM, so I created this to save me some time and effort. Enjoy.ContentsWho is this Task for?What does this Task do exactly?What do I need to know / understand before using this Task?The Bash commandsNote to S3 usersNote to Other device usersI want to change this to use a folder of my choice. How?DownloadWho is this Task for?This Task has been created for root users. In particular, those who use a ClockWorkMod (CWM) based recovery to flash zips. It can be annoying when you upgrade your ROM and then have to flash your favourite theme and all your mods, one after anotherWhat does this Task do exactly?This Task, when triggered (Homescreen widget), will boot into recovery and flash all the zips (In alphabetical order) one after another in one folder, then boot back into Android. This prevents you in CWM recovery, having to keep going through the menus to choose the install option and browsing to the folder every time.You can add a widget to the homescreen:Long press home screen > Add Widget > Task > ZipFlashWARNING - Ther
ClockworkMod Recovery Gets The Feature To Create Update.zip Files
Thursday 09th of August 2012
If you are a flashaholic person, you must have rooted your Android smartphone and have installed the popular ClockworkMod Recovery on it. The main purpose of the CWM Recovery is to allow the users to create nanadorid backups easily, flash thousands of custom ROMs available out there for the devices and to wipe off the data on your device. The CWM custom recovery is available for almost all the devices in the market, so regardless of what device you use, you can install it.Recently, a news came out that the new version of the CWM Recovery would bring the feature to create update.zip files. If you do not know what it is, let me tell you about it. An update.zip is a file comprising of all your ROM data and it can easily be flashed using any recovery on your device. With this new feature, you will be able to create the flashable ZIP files of your current ROM, including the modifications you have done, and then you can share it with your friends. It also helps you to revert back to the default ROM you were using before installing a new custom ROM.The updated version with this feature of

[Updated x2: Now In ROM Manager As Of 126.96.36.199] Download: ClockworkMod Touch Recovery Beta Now Available For Galaxy Nexus And Nexus S/S4G
Thursday 31st of January 2013
After Koush tantalized users with a video showing off the first official touch-based ClockworkMod Recovery interface two days ago, CWM has taken to Google+ and posted download links for the official beta, making CWM Touch Recovery available to Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S users.Update #1: Nexus S 4G now supported.Update #2: According to Koush, the newest ROM Manager update that is being rolled out now has a new option to download ClockworkMod Touch for supported devices as an in-app purchase (or for free at http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager).It's worth noting that (for now) the beta is only available for the Nexus S' GSM variant (Update: NS4G now too), and for both CDMA and GSM versions of Samsung's Galaxy Nexus. As noted in CWM's Google+ post, users should flash the new touch recovery beta using fastboot.Though the beta is only available for a select few devices, an official touch interface for CWM should save your physical buttons from abuse, ease the process of tweaking your device, and make one of the most popular recovery options for Android that much sweeter.Download: Galaxy

I will update if i decide im brave enough to try a rom.2/12/12 Update : I did a Nandroid backup while safe system was disabled, I did not try to flash it in either mode. I myself am holding out until I can get an SBF file or another means of restoring original firmware.2/15/12 Update : I enabled safe system, after enabling safe system the recovery backs up original rom and starts safe system. After safe system is enabled if we had a rom to flash we would then do that. And phone would boot the same way with the option to enter

Warning now that we have Custom Recovery!!!
Saturday 22nd of September 2012
Since we now have CWM custom recovery I felt it was time to post this WARNING!!! If you have installed GP's CWM recovery DO NOT factory reset your phone from the privacy menu under settings... All resets need to be done from recovery via the Format Data/Factory Reset Option. If you do a reset from Privacy menu you MAY end up bricking your phone because custom recoveries generally don't respond good to the factory reset command from the stock rom. Also there have been some that have installed the CWM recovery on the ZV4 firmware. If you ever decide you want to install the ZV5 update you will more than likley going to need to switch back to stock recovery. The update command from the stock rom may not be liked by the custom recovery Either. Now these are from previous experience I have with phones in the past and May or May Not be applicable to the Elite but since it is CWM it is more than likley the case. I felt a warning was justified. Unless someone wants to try just to see what happens I would avoid the Factory Reset and Update options in the Stock Settings Menu

Finding/testing a suitable ClockworkMod recovery for Onda v701
Wednesday 15th of May 2013
Hello everyone,I'd like to replace the default Android Recovery that comes with my Onda v701 and install ClockworkMod. However, I'd like to do this as safely as possible (meaning I'd like not to take unnecessary risks).The problems I'm facing are:1. Finding a CWM ROM that boots and works on the Onda's hardware (they have specialized builds for the most important manufacturers: ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries)2. Finding out if the CWM ROM would be controllable without volume keys (I don't actually have an Onda v701, but I do have an Allview Speed City which is an Onda 701 clone without the hardware volume keys)Action plan:1. Ask around if anybody knows of such ROM. So far I haven't heard anything. Nobody seems to have used it2. Try to boot several CWM ROMs through fastboot so that I don't lock up the tablet. Problem is - I can't get the bootloader into fastboot mode... Is it possible to do it?3. If fastboot isn't an option I can flash several recovery roms (via dd) and try them out. Question is - presuming that a recovery ROM would not boot, can I just reboot the regular ROM on

(SOS) LG Optimus Q L55c Boots into CWM-Based Recovery no matter what I do.
Wednesday 16th of October 2013
First I'm new to the forums I'm also new to this Optimus Q so far I am enjoying both of them, OK I still can't figure this out, I've tried all kinds of Android forums and this is the first Q model based forum I've come across, the problem is I can't get it to do anything but boot into a CWM-Based Recovery,( I had flashed a rom to it and it was working till a few days later when it died and I turned it back on) if it is mounted as a storage device there are no files on the phone. The following are steps I have taken to attempt to fix it;-First in CWM-Based Recovery I selected the "wipe data/factory reset", "wipe cache partition", "wipe dalvik cache", "format system".-On my PC I placed the Striped_Q_Modv1.0 in the same directory as C:Program Files (x86)Minimal ADB and Fastboot as instructed-I ran Fastboot(in Administrator) on my PC with my LG Optimus Q plugged in with the proper USB cable and typed the following commands1.adb reboot bootloader* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 **daemon started successfully*2.Then it restarted my
