[Q] power button dead- need touch version of CWM to backup with.
Been lurking on the site for a while, I've searched all morning for what i need but with no success.
Setup: Att sgh-i777 rooted etc. running JellyBam 5.1
Problem: Power button stopped working, cannot use recovery to backup/flash new software.
Plenty of threads on the button issue, that's not the main question (suggestions welcome though) I just really want to backup before I send it off for repair.
Seems my best course of action is to get a kernel with touch based recovery. I tried downloading mobile Odin to flash a new kernel but it's telling me my phone isn't supported for some reason? I ran the dump file Odin suggested but not sure what to do with that info now. Next best option appears to be to get a .tar of the siyah kernel and flash it with Odin via PC. I just can't find a .tar for that kernel anywhere and I don't have enough posts to ask in the siyah thread.
So, can anyone give me a hand- either with trouble shooting mobile odin, or tracking down a .TAR of the siyah kernel or...any other suggestions?
Edit: Just found this- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1644240
I realize this is in the 9100 forum but looks like it simply converts a zip to an odin flashable tar which is what i'm looking for. Anyone have any experience with it?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
