Hi,

I've just tried to update my i9300 for the first time to CM11 from CM10 since I need 4.4 to run the new Google Camera and Chrome Desktop.

Unfortunately upon downloading the update via the system menu and rebooting my phone, it just goes to CLockwork Recovery... is there anyway of fixing this please? Preferably without wiping all of my data too because I have Google Authenticator on there and it isn't backed up :S

Thanks

(edit) Also I can't turn off my phone... argh - anyone know how to stop my battery from draining before it dies in CMR? Thanks

Download CM11 M5 it's the most stable and backup everything with titanium backup
If you can't boot to the ROM do nandroid backup then do fresh ROM install
After installation use Nadroid Manager app to extract your apps from Nandroid backup you've made after the new ROM boots up

Thank you, so just to clarify download this: http://download.cyanogenmod.com/get/...T-M5-i9300.zip

Plug my phone into the PC and transfer across the file

Then in Clockwork go install zip from SD card?

Thanks again

Sorry, when I plug in my phone it doesn't show under my computer... is there anything I have to change in ClockworkMod REcovery?

Thanks both, I managed to sort it in the end by going back to CM10.2 and then installing CM11 via the official installer

Just curious, how do I update CWM? Is there any easy way of doing that?

Thanks

Just download the newest version of cwm and flash it like a normal zip.
