At the time there are two different kind of CWM recoverys. Both have their positiv and negativ characteristics. Some say the installable is better then the temp once, other think in a other way. So choose for your own and make your own experience.
At first your phone has to be rooted! In the next step you have to activate "Unknown Applications" (Settings > Applications).
Download the attached recovery(ENG).apk below or click for download. Copy the file to your sdcard and navigate to the directory where you have pasted the file in.
Click on it and install the APK.
Now you should have a app called "System Recovery" in your menü. Before you continue you have to connect your phone to a power supply or to your PC.
Now open the app and press the button with the title "Enter Recovery". You will be asked if you want to give the application root right.
Agree and the phone will boot into recovery mode!
As usual you navigate with volume+, volume- and except with the powerbutton.
- You´re just able to enter custom recovery while your phone is connected to PC or power supply.
- This version of CWM has a restore bug, so you should not restore a nandroid backup with this version!
By this type of recovery you have to execute a batchscript on a PC running Windows.
Unzip the archive and double click on the "-=Recovery-loader=-.bat". Further instructions are mentioned in the script.
NOTE: Everytime you want to use this type of recovery, you have to reexecute the script
