Question [Q] can I install ClockworkMod Recovery from sd card

can I install ClockworkMod Recovery from sd card?
and can the phone be rooted with out the usb port working?
I want to update to 4.1.2 or 4.2.2.
the phone is unlocked
4.0.4 on it now

my phone has a bad usb port waiting for new one to come in, I have read that sometimes after installing the new port there could be a loss of signal, I a battery charger and a spare battery so if that happens then I will have to put the old one back in.
I'm new to all this sorry if this has been asked before I could not find the info

If you have a custom recovery installed already, yes cwm can be installed from the sdcard. If you only have the stock recovery, you must use a pc with the usb.

Looks like you'll have to wait till you get a new usb port to install a custom recovery and root. Once you have the custom recovery installed, you'll no longer need usb. So if your new port has signal issues you can swap back and still be able to flash!

Press and hold volume up/down and power together til Samsung logo, then let go power only. Recovery should pop up.

By the way, you can run a search or look in Super Everything thread and find all your answers.

And try and follow the rules about double posting. You asked the exact same thing in the stupid question thread and started a new thread at about the same time.

It's no problem. Just helping you learn. Some have a tendency to post over and over the same issue.

Question can any one point me to 4.2.2. for telus I717

I got the new USB port in and no sound but I can load and the charger works on it new port on its way,

can any one point me to 4.2.2. for Telus I717 that is stock or almost stock ?
there is a pull down switch at the top for data on-off that I have only seen in the 4.2.2 that I would like to have.

I would like to get this phone up and running to see if it works right before I try any thing with to much modding in it that way I will know if the phone is any good.

I have looked in the super every thing and I see a lot of modded ones but I must be missing the Stock one.
I loaded 4.1.2 and the phone is working
