Hi! Good day to all,

I am new in XDA. I am Moniruzzaman.

Please help me!!!!

Symphony Xplorar W85 (Code name: l3356) Manufacturar: Symphony

I want to flash my CWM touch recovery img to my phone. but I couldn't find the recovery partition

I've rooted my phone using framaroot 1.9.1. I have upgrade supersu and installed supersu pro 1.94

I've dumped my stock boot.img and stock recovery.img using dd command dd if=/dev/bootimg of=/mnt/sdcard/boot.img [3.6 GB in size] and dd if=/dev/recovery of=/mnt/sdcard/recovery.img [3.6 GB in size also] respectively.

I've successfully extracted all the necessary file (kernal, ramdisk and other) from stock boot.img not the stock recovery.img and manage to create the recovery.img (CWM Touch recovery) for my device (l3356) which is 6.11 MB in size

I flashed it from sdcard using dd command again "dd if=/mnt/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/recovery"

It didn't work. I could not reboot into recovery. My phone automatically go into normal boot mode. Then I find my mobile gsm was gone.

After that I restore my stock recovery.img to /dev/recovery using dd command.

finally I 've tried to flash my cwm recovery.img to mmcblk0 using dd and it was horrible. I got steady hang.

Luckily I 've manage to replace my phone's motherboard and got a new one (as I've warranty)

my device /dev/block/mmcblk0 contains many critical parts of the phones file system such u-boot, /boot, recovery and other bootloader related components.

Now is there any one who can help me flashing CWM touch recovery img to my phone. I couldn't find the recovery partition

Details are for analysis. Please help me solved the problem...


My device (Symphony Xplorar W85) build.prop is attached here



Now There is no file named /cache/recovery/last_log in my mobile as it is new.

Talking CWM Recovery Non Touch version
I don't have stock rom.

I have dumped stock bootimg which is 3.6 GB in size. It also contain the whole image of 4 GB partition of Symphony W85. So if you use dd command then it will copy the whole image to your phone. I have tried it on my phone and it worked.

Why are your looking for stock rom?

Symphony W85 CWM has already out on net [search google for "Mobile Solutions: Symphony W85 CWM Recovery" As I am new, I can not insert link here until i post 10 message.

Best of luck
