[GUIDE]Install ClockWorkMod(CWM) recovery on INO 2
Hi XDA, today I'm going to show you how to install CWM recovery onto your INO 2.
I recently got myself one because my workplace does not allow camera enabled mobile phones.
I wanted the root functionality and CWM recovery I had on my previous phone(Xperia Arc S).
Unfortunately, Google didn't throw up the results I wanted until I came across this:
Following the instructions of the thread, I managed to install CWM recovery on the INO 2

You will need Adb drivers installed on your computer. http://pdanet.co/a/
And MTKDroid tools http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2160490
Mtkdroid tools contains exploits necessary for the rooting process, and this may be detected as a virus by your antivirus program, just temporarily disable your antivirus while downloading, or if you're really paranoid, don't download!
Connect your switched on rooted mtk device to your computer and open MTKDroid tool, the tool will recognise your device and connect to it, if the colour indicator in the bottom left corner is green, you already have root shell,and can go on to the next step, if it is yellow, click on the root
button at the bottom, and wait for the progress bar, if the indicator stays yellow, or you get an error message, this probably means you do not have Busybox installed, you can install it from the google play store. When the indicator turns to green you have root shell which is necessary for this operation.
Next click on the tab 'root,backup,recovery
' and select 'to use boot from phone
' then click on 'recovery and boot
' and shortly after a dialogue box will appear asking if you want to 'make cwm recovery automatically' click yes
The tool will then create the recovery and another dialogue box will appear asking to 'install created recovery to phone', click yes
And finally the tool will ask to reboot into recovery mode, click yes and the device will reboot into CWM recovery so you can check the installation was successful.
Thanks to Rua1 for creating this brilliant tool.
