Hello Forum people:

I have a strange problem with my Blu Elite 3.8, aka karbonn a9.
I have followed the Karbonn A9 process of rooting and it worked perfectly.
But ater following the CWM installation to the letter I cant seem to get the phone into CWM recovery using the key combinations.

Things I have tried:
  • I've installed various versions of CWM getting the same results.
  • Tried different key combinations such as Power+Volume UP, Power+Volume Down, Power+Volume Up + Home

I can report a workaround, install CWM Rom Manager from playstore, then I open the app and it inmediatly wants to install a CWM version for your phone model.


Naturally I choose the last option: "Not Listed"
then the app asks if you have installed CWM manually, I choose yes.

I can now reboot into CWM via the CWM app but I really wish I could to this without booting into the rom itself.
Sure I can install custom roms but if i end up with a faulty/non working rom im screwed because i wont be able to use the CWM app to boot into recovery to flash a backup.

Any Ideas?
