Now, your bootloader should print *UNLOCKED* Now let's do he real part of the job, what this tutorial has been made for. CHOOSE YOUR RECOVERY The choice of the recovery is very important. For the Wildfire S A510e, there are a lot of available recoveries : ClockWorkMod 5, 6 and 6 Touch Version TWRP 2.2.2.0 and 2.3.3.0 OWL-mod 0.1.2 (based on ClockWorkMod). These recoveries usually are also available for non-marvel models, you can find a link to the other versions in the thread. But DO NOT TRY TO FLASH ON YOUR DEVICE A RECOVERY THAT ISN'T MADE FOR IT ! Meaning, if you want to try ClowkWorkMod 6 Touch Version, but you have a marvelc, do not flash the marvel version. Look for the marvelc version of the Internet. You could brick your device doing this :P So, every recovery has a lot of advantages and also a lot of drawbacks. I will list them here. CWM 5 It can be found here.Take the Wildfire S CDMA version for marvelc. It is a good recovery, usually the one that everybody use. It is not a touch recovery, so you'll need to use it with volume keys and power button. It doesn't have amazing features, but is official and working. CWM 6 This is the newest version of ClockWorkMod recovery. It is better than CWM 5 : support of incremental backups, lighter and faster backups, new interface, etc. You can find it here. This one is pretty well working too, although it is not a touch recovery and even if it is not official. CWM 6 Touch version Like CWM 6, but using the touchscreen : better for the power button which is not made for a huge use. The problem is that this one isn't very stable : some features do not work, the screen is strangely sized. Use it only if you want to try, but not if you just want stability. You can find it here. TWRP 2.2.2.0 It is another touch recovery, open source and absolutely different. It is less used and is perfectly stable. It has many more features than CWM, especially a file manager (very, very handy when you want to mod some system things without your PC). I love it, but there is just one problem with the backups and restores : they take (for me at least) 5 more time than CWM ones. If you do not often backup/restore, that is OK, else you'll quickly get bored of waiting 30 minutes before flashing your rom. TWRP 2.2.2.0 can be downloaded here. TWRP 2.3.3.0 This was the latest version of TWRP available for the Wildfire S. You can download it on this website. It is better than TWRP 2.2.2.0 but has a major problem : it cannot flash some old files. That's quite annoying when you want to try a rom and you see you can't because the rom zip file is too old :/ TWRP 2.7.0.0 This is the latest version of TWRP, built by @Olivier for our phone. It is definitely pretty cool, has loads of features and nearly no bugs. You can find it here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2692158. Like TWRP 2.3.3.0, it cannot flash some old files :/ OWL-mod 0.1.2 This recovery has been made especially for the Wildfire S. For now, it is pretty like CWM 6, with a few mods. But the next version looks very interesting Here is the thread. PhilZ recovery 6.0.2.8 Here is PhilZ recovery, a recovery which looks very much like CWM 6.0.2.8 but has some nice features. Here is the non-touch version : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2605331. Then, I let you choose, try some of them and see by yourself FLASH YOUR RECOVERY That's easy if your bootloader is unlocked. Download Android SDK here. Extract everything, and open cmd (Start menu - Execute - cmd). Then, in cmd, navigate to the repository you extracted everything (cd path\to\directory). Then, in this directory, go to sdk\plaform-tools. In this folder, place the recovery file you downloaded. Now, reboot your device in bootloader mode. Then go into fastboot. If the device is recognized you should see USB Plug on the screen. You can now type Code: Select Code fastboot.exe flash recovery your_recovery_file_name.img and voila ! You should see a loading bar on the screen, and you can reboot into recovery THE BEST FLASHING TOOL @Uksus17 made a pretty nice tool to help you install a recovery : just make sure USB debugging is enabled in your phone's settings, then connect it to the computer (of course, with the drivers installed - see before) and just run the .bat You can find the script here : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nuf2pq3ay9eu7xk/7gtYOs07EN WINDOWS 8.1 On Windows 8.1 the fastboot drivers do not work. Thus you have to use another way to install the recovery : PG76IMG. The recovery will be downloaded as a zip file that you will put at the root of your sd card. Then just reboot into bootloader (vol down + Power) and it will flash it automagically @niks255 made PG76IMG for TWRP 2.2, 2.7 and CWM 6.0.4.8. You can find it here : 2.2, 2.7, 6.0.4.8 LGE Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) - HTC Wildfire S A510e (Marvel) My work : Helping porting Sense 4 and Sense 5 to armv6.

Recognized Contributor - OP Thanks Meter 448 Posts: 888 Join Date: Jul 2012 Location: Nantes More Info > Let's talk about support now ! WHERE TO POST A QUESTION It is easy : when you have a problem with a rom, post it right in the rom thread. Do not create a thread in General section with your problem. If you can't post in the rom thread, or if your problem is very specific, or just if nobody answered you in the rom thread, then post in Q&A section. NEVER IN GENERAL ! general sections is for threads that are not about a mod, a rom, a kernel, a recovery, an accessory or a question. For example, this guide When you have a problem, people will often ask you to give them a logcat. But what is it ? HOW TO LOGCAT The logcat is the command that gives you all the informations about the system in real time, errors, warnings, or just debug info. When you have a problem and if you create a post or a thread about it, try to provide a logcat. This is easy ! In cmd, navigate to the repertory where fastboot.exe was. Plug your device to your computer. Usually Android debug is activated by default, you can verify in your phone's parameters. It depends on the Android version, but for Android >= 4.0 it is in Develper tools and for Android < 4.0 it is in the app menu, in the development section. Now type Code: Select Code adb logcat : you should see a lot of text. Don't worry if you understand nothing ! Just give everything to the people who ask you for the logcat. Then follow their instructions Advice by @csoulr666 : For a better and cleaner logcat you can do Code: Select Code adb logcat -v long And if you want to put it in a text file Code: Select Code adb logcat -v long >logcat.txt Then just upload the file It is easier to read and doesn't spam the thread (very difficult to scroll when you're on your phone :P). Moreover with that you do not get into troubles with the character limit. Just a precision about Android >= 4.2. You can't logcat on first boot, because of a new thief-protection feature. You'll need to boot, to plug the phone to the computer, make sure you have the latest adb installed (adb version - it must be 0.1.31 or more) and when you try to connect to the device, a popup will appear and prompt for adb access. Reply yes, and check the remember box, and now here you are, yu can logcat with this rom ! If you still want to logcat on first boot, you can use this guide (thanks to @thehacka1 !). RESPECT THE DEVELOPER A rom developer is a human being :P He has the right to sleep and to work and to have fun ! Do not ask for updates of the rom everytime, and don't bame him if he disappears from the thread for a few days... The more you ask for updates, the less he wants to make them Do not forget to press thanks button when you think the dev deserves it ! Do not just post "thanks" LGE Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) - HTC Wildfire S A510e (Marvel) My work : Helping porting Sense 4 and Sense 5 to armv6. Helping building Firefox OS for the Wildfire S here.

For logcat you also need your device's drivers. And don't forget 4.2.2 can't be logcated.

Device drivers have already been installed if you unlocked your bootloader And 4.2.2 can be logcated, it just cannot be at first boot... But you're right, they may need to logcat on first boot. Could you please give me the link of your tutorial to get ADB working on first boot on 4.2.2 please ?
