Default [CWM] Recovery for Huawei U8730 (MyTouch Q)

Hello everyone,

I have a stable (but not perfect) CWM Recovery for Huawei U8730 (T-Mobile MyTouch Q by Huawei), no random reboot at all and combo key to boot into recovery.

It might work on Huawei U8680 (Huawei MyTouch).

download link : http://www.mediafire.com/download/5t...p/recovery.img

to install it, boot your device into download mode (pink screen) by pressing "volume up and down + power"

put the recovery.img downloaded before in your image folder to replace your original recovery.img

pull out the battery and replace it

boot your device by pressing "volume up + power" and you must be in recovery mode.

navigate : volume keys

validate : photo key

return : power key

Thanks to mattlgroff for his base and Tomm13b for his help to debug the recovery.

Now it's time to unbrick some device and start to build custom rom

PS : backup option only save system

new version available but still have system mounted and can't be unmounted, wipe work

If someone can take a look,go go

replace boot.img by this one http://www.mediafire.com/download/td...6ttmv/boot.img
replace recovery.img by the one of cwm
download the rom (it's a rom for u8730 but might work on u8680, it's just to unbrick your device) http://www.mediafire.com/download/12...730_signed.zip (deleted)
flash the rom with full wipe
and tell me if it works

Pardon me for sounding like an idiot, but how do I put the new recovery in that folder? Do I have to use adb or should I have some drive appear on my computer when I plug the phone in via usb? Note that I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and I already have my U8730 rooted. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not. Thanks for the help.

I'm using root browser after booting my device normally. I have found the folder and recovery.img. can I simply replace it by copy and paste since I already have my device rooted?
