II.A Little bit of Homework
If you are reading this, I assume and expect that you have read and implemented the steps mentioned in I. Things You Will Need
successfully otherwise reading this is a waste...
Let's proceed with your homework...Ya...I know,Me TOO
1.Obtain ClockworkMOD for your Android Device
2.Boot Your Device into recovery mode
3.Choose "Backup and Restore"
4.Create a backup of your device
Step1:The simplest way to obtain a clockworkMOD for your device is to google it...There's no way I can help you with that
since I don't know the device you are using.
Step2:Now...This step is a tricky one.
If you succeed in this step, your luck...Otherwise you wil have to root your device
Once you obtain a clockworkMOD for your device,paste it in your device "sdcard".
Then,restart your device and boot it into recovery mode...What
K...for newbies,The simplest way to boot your device into recovery mode is to google about it
Still,I'll mention for devices i know...But before that you will have to turn off your AndroidDevice
Spice Stellar Series: Hold VolUP+Power button...Green Screen Shows...Keep Holding...Red Screen Shows up...Release
Karbonn A series:Same as above
Samsung Galaxy Series: Hold VolUP+MiddleButton+Power Button
more to be added soon...
...if your device not listed...Google it or Searcg this thread.
Step3: Once you boot into recovery mode, use VolUP & VolDOWN keys to choose "Install ZIP from sdcard" and choose the
downloaded "clockworkmod.zip"(or whatever name you may have saved the zip file with).
If successful, clockworkMOD recovery will be booted.
Step4:If you had succes in step 3 & 4,skip this step otherwise read.
Google your device name to find the instructions on rooting your device.
e.g. In my case, I will google "spice stellar mi-425 root"
once rooted, turn on USB debugging & download the attached tool "replace-stock-recovery.zip" attached below.
Use it to replace stock recovery with ClockworkMODRecovery(CWM)...then Boot Into CWM.
Step5: Once booted into CWM,follow instructions at LINK
to make a backup of your ROM.
Step6: Once done with Backup, reboot your device and Copy the contents from External SDCard "extSD\clockworkmod" folder to your PC
III.The Fun Part
Okay...Since All homework is over, Now its time to get into action. Although Android Kitchen is full of endless possibilities,I will focus at present on changing boot splash screen.
1.If you have followed the video,tutorials or dsixda forum instructions,and successfully managed to get into android kitchen menu which looks somewhat like this...
Android Kitchen $version - by dsixda (xda-developers.com)"
> MAIN MENU
If yes,You are good to go.
If No,go back and read the instructions or at least watch the video again.
