Objective:
Thought I would create an app to try to make it easier to flash the ClockworkMod to your phone so you can get to recovery without having to use ROM Manager. This app will also let you revert back to Stock Recovery.

  • Flashing the custom recovery using NvFlash is the only way to ensure that in the case your phone will not boot up, you will be able to get into recovery to fix the issue / flash a ROM / restore from nandroid backup. That is what this app will do for you.

    If you flashed the ClockworkMod recovery from ROM Manager it does not flash the recovery to your phone, it fake flashed it. The only way you can gain access to ClockworkMod recovery is through ROM Manager at that point. Using this method is the only way to flash recovery so it is persistent and accessible booting to recovery.

    If you have already flashed through ROM Manager you can still proceed with this method. Flash Away!
    (You can use both ROM Manager CWM and have the nvflashed version working together. You just access either or one at a time, having the nvflashed one means you can boot to CWM. Welcome to Tegra2)

One-Click ClockworkMod Recovery NvFlasher







****Warning I am not responsible if you brick your phone!****



Instructions:
Quote:

Extract the package:

  1. Extract the One-Click-G2x-recovery-flasher-04-28-12.rar to some location of your choosing.

Quote:

Nvidia NvFlash APX Driver

  • Unlike a lot of Android phones out there the Nvidia Tegra2 chipset require additional drivers in Windows to support low level flashing.

Install APX Windows driver from APX folder.


(Windows x86 and x64 O/S Drivers):
****If you are running VmWare kill it.****
  1. Remove the battery.
  2. Plug in your USB cable to your PC.
  3. Hold Volume Up and Volume Down at the same time keeping them held down.
  4. Plug in the USB cable to your phone. (Keep the buttons held until Windows detects a new APX device.)
  5. Open Device Manager in Windows and you should see "APX Device" listed with an error icon.
  6. Right click on the APX device.
  7. Select 'Update driver software'.
  8. Select 'Browse my computer...'.
  9. Select 'Let me pick...'.
  10. Select 'Have disk'.
  11. Browse to directory you extracted the *driver* software to: One-Click-G2x-recovery-flasher-04-28-12\APX.
  12. Accept any warnings, including the big red alert (you may need to disable UAC).
  13. Now in Device Manager under 'USB Controllers' you should have an 'NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver for mobile devices'.
  14. If not, uninstall the driver, reboot, rinse and repeat.

Flash ClockworkMod Recovery


  1. Remove the battery.
  2. Goto NvFlash directory and Double Click "OneClickRecoveryFlasher.exe".
  3. Make sure the USB cable is unplugged from your phone.
  4. Hold Volume Up and Volume Down at the same time keeping them held down. (Keep them held until you see the "S/W Upgrade" screen on your phone after you complete step7!).
  5. Plug in the USB cable to your phone.
  6. Click the "Flash CWM" button of your choosing. If you own a External SD card I suggest to choose version 5.0.2.0. This gives you Internal and External SD Support for ROM flashing but has External SD Nandroid Backup Support Only! If you do not own a External SD Card choose version 4.0.1.5 what has full Internal SD support for flashing ROMS and Nandroid backup.
  7. You should see it send a bunch of files to the device and the phone screen should say "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...". Once the files are sent and the program is finished running in the command window, you can just pull the USB cord while it still says "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...".
  8. Put the battery back in and you can now boot into Recovery. (see below..)


Quote:

Booting into ClockworkMod Recovery

  1. Power off your phone.
  2. Hold Vol Down + Power.
  3. Keep holding them, as soon as you see a "Blue LG Graphic" logo let go of the buttons.

Restore LG G2x Stock Recovery

  • Flash Stock recovery only when you want to send your phone in to T-Mobile. Otherwise do not flash Stock recovery. Stay on ClockworkMod Recovery.
  1. Remove the battery.
  2. Goto NvFlash directory and Double Click "OneClickRecoveryFlasher.exe".
  3. Make sure the USB cable is unplugged from your phone.
  4. Hold Volume Up and Volume Down at the same time keeping them held down. (Keep them held until you see the "S/W Upgrade" screen on your phone after you complete step7!).
  5. Plug in the USB cable to your phone.
  6. Click the "Flash Stock" button.
  7. You should see it send a bunch of files to the device and the phone screen should say "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...". Once the files are sent and the program is finished running in the command window, you can just pull the USB cord while it still says "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...".
  8. Put the battery back and you are done.

in the extracted folder,someone could place recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.7-p999.img in there and edit the FlashCWMRecovery.cmd to
nvflash.exe --bct E1108_Hynix_512MB_H8TBR00U0MLR-0DM_300MHz_final_emmc_x8.bct --bl fastboot.bin --download 5 cwm-recovery-recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.7-p999.img and it should work,correct?

I will wrap it up and add it to my app.

EDIT: OK Done Deal

couldn't you have just done the same with a batch file or am I missing something?

could you set it to a variable that allows you to enter a file path to a recovery image and it just flashes that? rather than just the two hard-coded options

Yes, but isn't this more pretty?

Yes I could have and did. But for the new guys, they seem to like just clicking buttons. This should be newbie proof and easier in my opinion.
