Shabbypenguin presents...
Clockworkmod Recovery 6.0.5.0 for Blaze 4G
Sponsored by Shabbypenguin.com. Have you tipped your devs today?

DO NOT CHECK REPARTITION! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Why the big red warning? Far too many people have broken their devices by not following these instructions! Search the forums, or drop by IRC - you'll see plenty of examples.

So the T-Mobile CWM worked... well sorta you couldnt see anything, so i fixed it up and made sure it worked fine for yall enjoy

Instructions

  1. Download Odin 1.85 - see section below.
  2. Download the Clockworkmod recovery TAR - see section below.
  3. Extract the contents of odin-185.zip.
  4. Run Odin 1.85.exe, and prepare Odin:
    • Check "auto-reboot", and uncheck all other options.
    • Click PDA and select the TAR you downloaded.
  5. Put your device into Download Mode:
    • Connect the USB cable to your PC, but NOT your device.
    • Remove the battery.
    • Reinsert the battery.
    • Hold down Volume Up + Volume Down + Power.
  6. You should now be at Download Mode.
  7. Click Start in Odin.

If you are having issues getting into download mode check out these instructions

That's it! Your device will autoreboot, and your phone should be working properly again.

Okay.
Im having issues.
I have a T-Mobile Samsung Blaze4G

Followed every step to the T.
When I do Vol up+ Vol dwn+ PWR
i come to a recovery screen and at the bottom it says Manual mode.

I dont see anything that says "Download Mode"

From the top down this is what I see
Android Systems recovery <3e>
Reboot system now
apply update from sdcard
wipe data/ factory reset
wipe cache partition


Any ideas?

In Odin I had to download Keis Air because my computer was not installing drivers for the phone. once i downloaded Keis Air and plugged in the phone it recognized it and finished installing the drivers. I did a computer reboot and when I follow the steps I get a YELLOW highlighted box in ODIN under the ID:COM part that says 0:[COM3] in yellow.

I hit start but nothing happens.

I guess you missed this, which was posted at the exact same time.

Ah shucks. I was able to use the SU files from the t989 and it worked for me.

Is there a difference in what I did and what the root kernel will do?

rooted kernel has a few perks to it that k0nane threw in . hopefully you guys can now attract some devs and start working on roms/cm . we aim to please, just remember us the next time you have a device that isnt getting much love ;P

SCossio from what i understand the key combo gets you into a quasi-downloadmode, need to hit vol up to confirm to enter download mode and then you can plug it in and begin to flash this

perhaps some nice blaze owner can make a how-to video? sorry if our instructions seem off or vague, myself or k0nane have never seen this phone let alone touched one, so we rely on you guys (blaze owners) to help with these kinds of things.
