Default [RECOVERY] ClockWorkMod Official "TOUCH" recovery v5.8.1.8 [UPDATED 24/5/12]

As I seem to have come under a little fire for not stating that you need to be unlocked to install a custom recovery, I thought that I would add a little clarification.

At the time I started this thread the unlock had only just been released, and EVERYONE knew that the methods contained within this thread were only possible if you were unlocked. I apologize for my assumptions.

PLEASE NOTE, YOU MUST BE UNLOCKED TO BE ABLE TO INSTALL A CUSTOM RECOVERY AND/OR CUSTOM ROM!

I also received a little flak for not explaining the adb/fastboot processes more clearly. While I can understand that many people who come to XDA are new to the whole custom ROM kettle o' fish, it is my honest opinion that if you have not already read up about ADB and FASTBOOT and have an understanding of how to use them, you most definitely have absolutely no business whatsoever flashing a recovery or ROM at all.

I was a noob when I first arrived here at XDA, but I read and re-read as much information as possible before going anywhere near flashing custom recoveries and/or ROMs to my Desire HD.

There are plenty of great guides around for learning how to use ADB and FASTBOOT, please I implore you, before attempting to flash anything to any device you own, read these guides over and over again until you feel that you have the confidence to flash your device without the need for someone to hold your hand.

I think that about covers everything that I wanted to say other than a big thank you to Swiftks and Striatum_bdr for answering so many peoples questions in this thread.

That's all folks.

As always Peace, Dok


!!!YOU MAY WANT TO GO HERE FOR UPDATED UNOFFICIAL RECOVERIES, BOTH TOUCH AND STANDARD VERSIONS ARE AVAILABLE!!!

Huge thank you to Roach2010 for the updated recoveries.

LETS GET THE FORMALITIES OUT OF THE WAY

1. I did not build this, it is the official CWM touch recovery from the CWM website.

2. If you brick your device flashing this, I am in no way responsible.

3. If you brick your device flashing this, I am in no way responsible.


4. Please, follow all steps very carefully, especially the actual flashing step.

5. I have personally flashed this without issue.

6. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO VERSION OF CWM FOR THE PRIME THAT SUPPORTS EXTERNAL SDCARD STORAGE. USE THE INTERNAL MEMORY FOR ALL YOUR FLASHING NEEDS.

So, you want some lovely touch based CWM recovery on your device?


METHOD NUMBER 1: The Fastboot! - NO NEED FOR ROOT
Come right this way you fearless young chap.

http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager

download the tf201 touch recovery, version 5.8.1.8

Now, switch off your device, then hold volume DOWN and the power button together until your Prime shows the RCK screen.

At this point press volume down. This will take you to the options of which fastboot is one.

Switch to fastboot mode by pressing volume DOWN (It's the USB symbol, but you knew that already else you wouldn't be here) then press volume UP to select the option.

Connect your USB cable now, if you haven't already.

Next you need to open a command prompt/terminal window and cd to where you have downloaded the .img

Next type fastboot -i 0x0b05 flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.1.8-tf201.img

Once the flash has completed (the screen will sit with a full blue bar doing nothing) you can reboot to recovery as per normal, but now you will have the wonderful touch recovery.

METHOD NUMBER 2: The blob!
CREDIT to Striatum_bdr

- download the img file
- rename it as blob file with a more simple name for example cwm_touch.blob
- open Terminal Emulator on your tablet, then:
$ su
# dd if=/"path to blobfile" of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 (REPLACE "path to blobfile" with the path to where you have saved the file).

You're done.
Reboot, the blob file will be flashed at boot (same as kernel).

METHOD NUMBER 3: The Terminal noob!

It is also available via ROM Manager, for a fee.

!!!HUZZAH FOR KOUSH!!!
I hope you all enjoy.

My recommendation would be to do a fresh backup of your ROM as soon as you boot into the new recovery, just in case.

No it doesnt touch your ROM. It just changes your recovery to clockwork touch.

I like the idea of them wanting more money.
