Hey there,

Please find CWM for Oppo FInd 5 attached to this thread

CWM (ClockWork Mod) is a custom recovery designed to flash unofficial updates, backup and restore your device, and repair it in case of bad-flashed files, as well as a few extras.


INSTRUCTIONS
- Download the Android SDK in order to get the "fastboot" command-line tool
- Download the recovery.img and put it in the directory of fastboot (......\android-sdk\tools\)
- Hold power key and choose to restart your phone. Unplug any USB cord, and press the Volume Up key when the screen goes black. It takes some practice to get in fastboot mode, you might need to not press the Vol Up key immediately, etc. It's a bit jiggly, but after some time you get used to it and manage to do it in the first try :P
- If you succeed so far, you should be on a black screen with white text saying "fastboot mode..."
- Plug your USB cord, open your command-line, go to the fastboot directory, and type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
- After a few seconds, the recovery will be flashed. Then type fastboot boot recovery.img to boot the recovery immediately
- Use the recovery option "Reboot system now" and say "Yes" to "Prevent system from writing recovery". Oppo official ROM will reflash a stock recovery on boot if you don't do that.


It shouldn't be too hard. Also, you're free to use CWM or TWRP (available in another thread), whatever you prefer. I'm just making that thread to separate our CyanogenMod build from the recovery itself and provide an alternative.

Nice, any reason to choose CWMR over TWRP?

CWM is known to work, and it's what we were using for development. It's less beautiful than TWRP, but it does its job, so if you don't plan to spend hours in recovery, CWM is a bit more painful to use (vol keys + power to validate), but safer.

https://plus.google.com/106631699076...ts/PzR46FpXiWP is a pretty good summary of it.

The TWRP guys do great work, but - recovery is recovery, you shouldn't be spending that much time there. CWM's simplicity makes it a bit easier to maintain.

Will you be updating it to clockworkmod touch?That would be great
Also,does it support ROM Manager app? I find this a better method since it removes need for a PC,and is simpler.

CWM touch is not open source, so no.

As to ROM Manager - I personally don't use it, it has failed on every device I've ever tried it on. It softbricked Infuses easily, and caused no end of problems on the I777.

It worked well on my phone,and saved a lot of time,it all has to do with the quality of the CWM submitted. At least consider it,if only for the PC-less.
