[Q] Sideloading stock ROM problems on ClockworkMod Recovery
Howdy -- I was given a SGH-I747 formerly on AT&T. This was a hand-me-down from a coworker that doesn't know what the prior owner actually did to the thing.
It appears that the phone boot-loops for a bit until it lands in into ClockworkMod Recovery v188.8.131.52
. The CyanogenMod
logo appears at initial boot.
This recovery tool seems to have no external microSD card access. I already have ADB on my Win7 machine and was able to install a driver for the S3 to allow me to sideload via command prompt.
I attempted to do this with a copy of the stock ROM
without root access.
Initially I was forced to update a line on the script
to bypass the invalid number of arguments roadblock, but later encountered this:
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
set_perm: some changes failed
E:Error in /tmp/update.zip
I presume something has changed on the primary partition that it wasn't expecting, but I haven't the slightest idea where to go from here.
Thanks for the brainpower
