Hi guys,
I have a HTC Desire. My USB port is broken (no money to fix) so cannot connect it to my PC. I have TWRP as recovery, but it wont install zip files.
e:unable to create updater file in /tmp/updater. There is currently no OS loaded. Is there any way i can install CWM at startup like a .bat file or something when i switch on the phone.
Please, please help me. Phones are expensive in South Africa
Thank you so much

You might have to use an SD card reader to transfer files, so why don't u flash 4ext recovery pb99img.zip file method so u can install a custom rom, are you s off?

Hi, thanx for your quick response. it is really much appreciated.
Yes I am s-off. ok, I copied the zip file to the sd card, restarted phone "back button+power button", (vol button+power button does not work), vol button down to recovery, and the phone restarted. But now it does not get pass the htc logo.

It has to get to the bootloader not to the recovery.

<VOL DOWN> to next item
<POWER> to select item

FASTBOOT
RECOVERY
CLEAR STORAGE
SIMLOCK

It then extracts something
Then it says something like : no image or wrong image
Should I leave it here? or should I get a different image?

Yh sometimes u need to format ur sdcard aswell before it reads it.

Theres a guide here in desire general and "how to partition sdcard correctly" read that, im sure abbbbaaaab explains mount2sd aswell. Worth a read.
