Hello Mates,

Here I am posting the Way, Methods and Files to get rid of the problem arised with the latest recovery 5.0.2.0 in Idea Blades. I have found the way to solve it out through this thread thanks to Tetora.

The error will somehow as pasted below when You boot into recovery:
E:failed to find "cache" partition to mount at "/cache"
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:failed to find "cache" partition to mount at "/cache"
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't find misc
E:failed to find "cache" partition to mount at "/cache"


Due to this error one can not do anything in recovery like backup, restore,wiping,flashing roms , etc. and which is very annoying. This happens because the CWM reject or failed to identify the root access of the device.

Even I have a headache on my birthday due to the problem. I have followed that thread (post above) posted by tetora and sorten out the problem.
Now I can flash, backup, restore and can do anything with the recovery

There are two methods to get the recovery Working:

1 . Through ADB

Attached is the file to flash via adb.. Please follow the steps given below (thanks to matt4321) :

The 'flash_image' is within the attached zip file! Use the file within the zip file, NOT the zip file itself

The 'recovery.img' is your chosen recovery file, get this off ClockworkMods website or if you have a copy use that. Then when flashing the recovery image where ever it says 'recovery.img' replace that with the name of the recovery file. following me?

Here's the instructions:
(make sure you're in the command prompt and have changed directory to where the adb file is)

adb push c:\flash_image /sdcard/
adb push c:\recovery.img /sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount, rw /system
cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
cd /system/bin
chmod 777 flash_image
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

and then boot into recovery now everything should work perfectly.

A big thanks to tetora for finding the recovery image file and matt4321 for his commands

2. Through Recovery Manager:

Install the application Recovery Manager v0.37b.apk
Extract the image file from recovery zip and place in the SD card.
Open the application "Recovery Manager"
Go in recovery Tab to flash the recovery img. Once you select to "Flash Recovery" it will search the img file automatically.
After flashing recovery you are done.

Thanks to ramubhat for providing procedure and testing the same.

You can use this link for the second method.

Disclaimer- I will not responsible for any damage so use it at your risk

Don't worry there is no other options left apart from it and its 99% safe.
