flash_image recoveryonly /storage/sdcard0/cwm5.img
adb root - daemon not running, starting it now on port 538
daemon started successfully *
adb shell - error: device not found
Turned on usb debugging / ADB in dev. options, thought that would fix it, but now adb root gives device not found also.
Edit3: Nevermind, I thought I was meant to be running this from a terminal on the phone, but I ran it from my PC and it worked fine - flashed CWM v126.96.36.199 perfectly.
By the way, is CWM 188.8.131.52 the most up to date -previous- non-kitkat CWM available for the S5380?
